If you haven’t bought the iPhone X (or iPhone 10 as some would call it), probably because the $1000 price tag is a scare, TechAbattoir brings some good news – the device will sell at a lesser price in 2018. Apparently, Apple may slash the price of the device.
With a $1000 price tag, it is no news that the iPhone X is one of the priciest smartphones out there. The anniversary iPhone even cost more depending on the region of purchase. The device has however been predicted to sell for less than $1000 in 2018.
We would get a cheap iPhone X this year! Yaaay!😎
…a cheap iPhone X is inbound
You may be wondering why the price of the device would be slashed given that iPhone X was one of the few smartphones that rocked the concluding part of 2017 and it even sold massively in some regions of the world. For example, 150,000 units were sold out under 3 minutes in South Korea.
The demand is crazy. The price should only go up. Don’t you think?
Well, two analysts by the name Nicolas Barrette and Michael Olson have given their individual reasons why the iPhone X will sell at a cheaper price this year.
Barrette believes that the iPhone X is performing poorly in terms of sales. He also opined that the Apple’s 10th anniversary iPhone X performed poorly and have reached all customers who showed interest in the device.
In his words,
“Consumers who wanted to get an iPhone X in December 2017 already have it”.
This means if the Big-A is serious about selling the iPhone X, it has to slash the price to attract more potential customers.
Olson, on the other hand, believes the iPhone X $1000 price tag would give way for a lesser one as Apple may release a smaller version of the iPhone X… and a bigger version too.
“We expect a lower priced X-gen option (likely the current iPhone X with a price cut) and we wouldn’t be surprised to see a ‘plus’ X-gen model in 2018,” Olson says.
It is speculated that it is either Apple cuts down on the price of the iPhone X, or release a smaller version with maybe reduced screen size and specs, or an iPhone X with an LCD screen would surface. Either way, a cheaper iPhone X is inbound!
