Paying an ultra-premium for the iPhone X is the sacrifice that consumers will need to make to get their hands on the utterly bezel-less iPhone. That's what Apple wants you to believe. The last iPhone model to be cancelled ahead of its normal end of life cycle was the iPhone 5C back in 2014. The iPhone X had a during the holiday shopping season, but that's about it.

Breaking down, as per the KGI report, Apple will ship around 18 million iPhone X units in Q1 2018, followed by a mere 13 million units in Q2 2018. Kuo added that Apple would not even retain the iPhone X as a lower-priced option in the following year. Nevertheless, the year might end with favorable numbers for the Cupertino tech company.

The iPhone X has not been among Apple's best-selling iPhones despite sporting a brand new design language. All three of them would feature the Face ID facial recognition system. The analyst also believes Apple will introduce a second generation of the iPhone X and a new version called the iPhone X Plus that will offer a larger screen predicted to be 6.5 inches. First and foremost, the iPhone X launched much later than Apple's iPhone 8 models.

The company is supposedly struggling to justify iPhone X production because of poor sales - and may scrap the phone later this year. Instead, iPhone X will probably disappear altogether, while a new set of two iPhone X-like devices will take its place. So says KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.
