Monday Apple Rumors: Apple May Discontinue the iPhone X in 2018

Apple iPhone X cancelled in 2018: According to Ming Chi-Kuo, Apple will not retain iPhone X after summer of 2018. One of them would be a huge 6.5 inch phone, with a lovely OLED display just like the iPhone X while the other one would be sporting an LCD display measuring 6.1 inches.

In his note, Kuo appeared to imply the move was a response to weak demand, particularly in China, where smartphone buyers are said to be more skeptical of the infamous "notch".

Either way, the rumor comes as quite a surprise. And now its January 2018, it has been nearly 2-2.5 months since the launch now and a new report claims that iPhone X will be cancelled. Over the past several years, each time a new iPhone was released, the previous iPhone was knocked down one spot in the overall iPhone hierarchy, thereby reducing its price.

In other news, insider Daniel J. Riccio sold 15,641 shares of the stock in a transaction that occurred on Thursday, December 7th.

Instead, he says that the phone's features will "migrate" to other models, including the rumour iPhone X Plus.

In a word: No. Kuo has also prediction Apple will launch three iPhones in 2018 and all will come with the full vision display, though the most budget friendly version will likely have an LCD display.

You can already start to see the problem. Since Kuo's notes aren't released to the public, we've learned this from an AppleInsider report that also states Kuo's claim that Apple didn't sell as many iPhone X handsets in China as was expected, and that "the notch" is at least partially to blame.

Apple expects that the new flagship iPhones will definitely attract Chinese market. Accurate Investment Solutions Inc. now owns 6,600 shares of the iPhone maker's stock valued at $951,000 after purchasing an additional 26 shares during the last quarter. That answer is easy: It's too expensive. It's believed that the new 5.8-inch OLED model will remain at a $999 price point while the 6.5-inch OLED model will cost around $1099.

The iPhone X was undoubtedly the star iPhone of last year's range, packing a high screen/body ratio and a gorgeous OLED screen from Samsung.
