Apple's iPhone SE sequel reportedly won't be a big revamp

Apple will not kill the iPhone X this year – Report

Best not get too attached to the iPhone X branding, though, as there's a chance the next-generation model will leave the factory under a different moniker.

As reported by Reuters this morning, Apple has notified suppliers that it will halve its production target for the iPhone X in Q1.

Nikkei claims Apple saw a lower than expected demand for the iPhone X over the holiday season in key markets such as the United States, United Kingdom, China, and across Europe.

The iPhone X, Apple's first handset to ship with an OLED display, hasn't caught on with consumers the way Apple anticipated, likely due in part to its high price tag. At the end of December, analyst Zhang Bin from Sinolink Securities Co.

Pricing on this year's iPhone X would seem lower than what it was previously because of the iPhone X Plus possibly releasing, but that doesn't seem to be the case. The iPhone X may have been the best-selling smartphone of the Christmas quarter, but sales momentum was apparently lost after that.

Additionally, the decision is expected to affect suppliers including Sony, Kyocera, and TDK, who provide Apple with advanced camera sensors, additional circuitry, and batteries for iPhone X. The 2018 iPhone X will come with a 2800mAh battery, versus the 2715mAh from a year ago. Apple would not comment to The Nikkei on its production plans for the iPhone X. But rising inventories appear to have pushed the company to sharply slow production. This display will account for around 70 per cent of LCD panels for the 6.1-inch iPhone. Compared to the giant 6-inch-plus phones Apple is rumored to be releasing this year, it could make sense to keep an updated version of the smaller SE around. It features an OLED screen that spans from one edge of the device to the other and displays images in more vibrant colours.
