  • Is iPhone X really a flop? We'll know for sure tomorrow

It is expected that Apple will show just 2 percent growth in smartphone sales compared to previous year during the first quarter. Everyone who wants a smartphone has a smartphone, and thanks to a relative lack of innovation, people are holding onto their devices for longer than ever. iPhones will be important for Apple going forward, but the company is more than just one product.

Ming-Chi Kuo, top Apple analyst at KGI Securities, left the company last Friday, April 27th, according to a report by the China Times via Bloomberg's Mark Gurman. The iPhone X had a bright, edge-to-edge display and 3D facial recognition, but the $999 (U.S.) starting price was too much for some consumers.

Apple is reportedly set to release an updated version of the iPhone SE, the iPhone SE 2, later this year.

The latest information about the removal of the feature comes from Chinese site Feng. Kuo believes that this new displays setup will be used in all iPhone 2019 variants. Bernstein analyst Toni Sacconaghi said weakness in the current iPhone lineup was caused by a structural slowdown in the growth of new customers and the high pricing of the X model.




The new iPhone will also include a new "touch film sensor" to the glass.

What's your opinion on Apple ditching the 3D touch feature on the next generation iPhone? The information mentions that the company could use the Cover Glass Sensor technology for all of its iPhone releases next year. This led to the increase in prices of the already expensive iPhones. The prediction on iPhone X Plus stands at 6.5in OLED, while a cheaper variant might be available in 6.1in LCD, with larger bezels and similar features as iPhone X, but without the dual rear camera. Reports say the company spent years developing this technology, which enables gestures depending on the pressure applied when tapping the display.

At the time, CEO Tim Cook said: "Apple is a success story that could only have happened in America, and we are proud to build on our long history of support for the U.S. economy". What do you think about the 3D Touch feature? For the fiscal third quarter, analysts see 39 million iPhones sold, on average, down from 41 million in the same period of 2017.
