  • iPhone X successor, iPhone X Plus reportedly getting released earlier as OLED production will ramp up sooner

Apple's iPhone X smartphone, which was unveiled in September previous year, is hugely profitable and accounted for 35pc of total smartphone industry profits in Q4, 2017.

Experienced Raymond James analysts who rate the shares of AAPL on the market claim that Apple is already in the current year will significantly increase the value of your iPhone.

"The share of iPhone X is likely to grow as it advances further into its life-cycle", said Karn Chauhan, a research analyst for Counterpoint.

iPhone X generated 5X more profit than the combined profit of 600+ Android OEMs during Q4 2017, the research firm pointed out that. Other Apple devices, including the iPhone 8 and 7 series, generated a large chunk of the remaining global handset market profits.

Apple launched the iPhone SE in March 2016 so it has been two years since the handset got a successor.

Thanks to the razor-thin margins and the highly competitive nature of the smartphone market, it is very tough to rake in profits.


Apple's display notch exists to make room for the iPhone X's ear speaker and the TrueDepth camera and sensor array that enables Face ID.

"Chinese OEMs cumulative profits crossed $1.3 billion during Q4 2017".

Rumors indicate that until the news of the release of iPhone X sales started, the iPhone 8 Plus was more popular than the iPhone 8 was.Apple had to accommodate manufacture orders to balance sales with the then stock-limited iPhone X. Merriman Wealth Management LLC now owns 12,124 shares of the iPhone maker's stock worth $1,742,000 after buying an additional 1,899 shares in the last quarter. DigiTimes Research analyst Luke Lin noted that the iPhone X2 would be the most affordable model planned for this year. The US-based technology giant charges a premium for its devices and it's this premium has always helped the company become the most profitable brands time and again. But despite this, Cupertino-based Apple, which had been penciled in for a hard Q4 2017, managed to emerge victorious as it captured around 86 per cent of the total handset market profits in this quarter.

Unfortunately, the flaw of an OLED screen is its viewing angle, if you look at the iPhone X or Pixel 2's screen while tilting it sharply, you'll see a slightly off-color tint to everything. In the first ten - 8 Apple models and two models Samsung.

Another interesting tidbit, the three-year-old iPhone SE is generating more profit for Apple as compared to new smartphones from other OEM's. In fact, the average selling price (ASP) of their flagship devices also increased YoY. That includes everything from tiny no-name Chinese phone brands to some of the biggest names in the industry, like Huawei and LG.
