iPhone X pre orders could reach 50 million units due to strong consumer interest according to KGI Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. In addition to the strong consumer interest, iPhone X is also going up for pre order across a range of markets at the same time so it is certainly possible that its pre order numbers could surpass fifty million units.
KGI’s Ming-Chi Kuo posts that demand for the new iPhone could see orders reach 50 million units, giving Apple further stock shortage to contend with. We already know the high end iPhone X will be available in relatively small quantities and this news may mean getting hold of one will be even harder than first feared.
KGI’s Ming-Chi Kuo believes the iPhone X will enter into full-fledged mass production by mid to late October, ahead of its pre orders going live on October Twenty Seven. This points to the handset being in extremely short supply when it launches on November Three across key markets.
A rumor from earlier today had claimed that Apple had asked its suppliers to slow down the component deliveries of the new phone to as much as 40%. The slowdown is likely because the company does not want to pile up all other components for the device while the lack of the True Depth camera system continues to create a production congestion.
While the True Depth camera system on the new phone can be one of its key features, many clients are interested in it purely because of its bezel less notch display front design. Why do you want to buy the iPhone X for? Its design or features offered by the True Depth camera system like Face ID? – 9to5Mac
