Apple Ditching 3D Touch In 2018 Entry-Level iPhone X2

  • iPhone X is the best selling smartphone in the world?

Analysts such as Bernstein's Toni Sacconaghi expecting as few as 51 million handsets sold versus Wall Street's expectations of 54 million phones and 50.7 million a year ago.

KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, well known for his reports on upcoming Apple products, has left the firm. The third iPhone in the making would be a 6.1-inch LCD model with the updated display.

It is widely believed by analysts that the company will hand over billions of dollars worth of dividends and share buybacks over the next few weeks.

Other products speculated by Kuo based on his supply chain sources include the 10.5-inch iPad Pro, Apple Watch Series 2 with GPS, Apple Pencil, 12-inch MacBook, MacBook Pro with Touch Bar, iPhone SE and much more.

"We believe Apple will guide down on weaker iPhone expectations", Long said. But what we know is, the addition of it will raise the cost of the production of the iPhone display from $23 to $26 (15% increase).

"There are a lot of things that have to fall into place, but 3D Touch overall feels like one of those ideas that only Apple can push into the mainstream - if Samsung or Huawei had delivered a similar feature, it would nearly certainly be a gimmick". This all comes at the cost of 3D Touch. The company is preparing a new lower-cost iPhone that looks similar to the iPhone X and has some of its most-appealing features, Bloomberg News reported earlier this year. Reports say the company spent years developing this technology, which enables gestures depending on the pressure applied when tapping the display.

Hal Eddins, chief economist at Apple shareholder Capital Investment Counsel, said that numerous massive acquisition targets often tossed around as possibilities for Apple, such as Netflix or Tesla, don't make sense from a valuation standpoint because Apple would be paying a premium relative to its own price-earnings ratio, which sits below overall market averages.

Kuo also claims that this may just be the beginning of Apple's 3D Touch phase-out. You can see with most of these devices, however, that it is not the real iPhone X, because they have not copied the bottom and are still equipped with a decent edge at the bottom.
