iPhone X Demand May Outlast Supply Until Mid-2018, says KGI Securities Analyst
Apple's new flagship phone 'iPhone X' is expected to run into short supply of stocks soon after the launch, according to the latest research note released by KGI Securities Analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo. Kuo suggests that the iPhone X demand could outlast its supplies and lead to delayed shipments until mid-2018.
With the iPhone enthusiasts showing extremely positive reception for the iPhone X owing to its standout features like the Face ID, bezel-less (notch-styled) display and Animoji, the device is expected to outsell in no time.
Adding to its overwhelming demand, it is reported that Apple will be able to produce only 40 million units before the year-end as opposed to the earlier estimate of producing 50 million iPhone X units by the end of 2017.
According to Apple Insider, Kuo explains that Apple will be able to break even with its demand vs. supply constraint only by the first half of 2018. Until then, consumers are bound to see supply shortages and extended shipping delays for the iPhone X.
The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus shipments are already being pushed back by a couple of weeks soon after these phones went up for pre-orders on September 15. iPhone X is expected to far exceed the demand for the iPhone 8 variants, given its unique features and premium feel.
We just hope that Apple will be ready to absorb the production time constraints in light of overwhelming hype and demand for its tenth anniversary iPhone.
