NEW DELHI: When the flagship iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR were about to launch, there were wide speculations in the market that the iPhone X will be wiped clean from the shelves. It was being rumoured that with the arrival of the trio, Apple would halt the production of the iPhone X completely as it’s price won’t fit in the line-up. It has also happened that the ‘X’ has been out of stock from nearly everywhere since the past couple of months. But it looks like the smartphone, after months, may once again see the light if the day.
Apple may soon start manufacturing its last year’s flagship smartphone for certain markets according to the Wall Street Journal. And the reason behind it could be its rival Samsung.
The report says that the iPhone X production may begin once again because the Cupertino-based tech firm back in the day signed the contract that required it to use a certain number of Samsung Display’s OLED panel in its iPhone X. The numbers have apparently not been met, yet. Hence, iPhone X goes back in production.
It is not yet clear if the iPhone X will be made available in which markets but it sure is good news for many. We are also yet to see that for how much the company plans to sell the device now that there are three new iPhone handsets in the market.
For now, it is being speculated that the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and the iPhone XR are not being received well by the end users. The WSJ report adds that Apple will also be cutting down the iPhone XR prices in Japan. The production for all the three iPhones is said to have been cut as well, indicating that the firm might be having a hard time selling the new models.
