KGI Securities analyst Guo Mingchi in the latest report to investors to predict the iphone 8 series and the iphone x in the Christmas shopping season and early 2018 sales. Guo Mingchi said that the IPhone X in the four quarter of this year’s sales of about 22 million-24 million, the first quarter of next year due to a complete easing of capacity, the machine’s shipments are expected to grow 35%-45%. At the same time, it is also found that they are too worried about the UI changes caused by the cancellation of the home button.
Sales of the iphone 8 series are expected to remain below expectations, with Apple cutting more than half of its output by 2018. But the iphone 8 plus sales are slightly more than expected, as many users are still eager to have a big-screen iphone.
However, Guo Mingchi also said Apple and its partner Foxconn plan to turn some iphone 8 plus production lines into iphone X to boost sales. This will allow shipments of the 10 anniversary special edition to reach 25 million-27 million by the end of the year.
