Apple Will Produce Only 8 Million iPhone X Units In Q2

Posted April 29, 2018

The new models of the Product Red portfolio were launched internationally starting April 13. Now today, the company has launched these special edition iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus in India as well.

Like its predecessor, the iPhone SE, the iPhone SE 2 is expected to have a good showing in markets like India.

Apple also launched the PRODUCT RED iPhone 7 and 7 Plus a year ago, but they arrived with a white front. According to few leaked photos by, the possible iPhone SE 2 looks quite identical to the current model. The limited edition iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus came in the Red color finish with a matching aluminum band and a sleek black front. The feature went missing in iPhones following the launch of iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.

The lack of demand for Apple's premium iPhone model can be seen in the earnings reports of some its suppliers.

Unsurprisingly the device featured here doesn't come with any of the high-end features included on the iPhone X like FaceID or a bezel-free display.

The short video shows a purported Apple iPhone SE 2, which largely resembles the current Apple iPhone SE. And while reports suggest that it will have an iPhone X-inspired edge-to-edge display, there are also some conflicting reports that suggest otherwise.

Most reports agree that the successor to the iPhone SE will not be a total revamp. But it's disappointing to see a reduction in iPhone X production.

The highly speculated video suggests the identical iPhone SE design but with a glass body and new colour variant. The addition of all-screen design configuration and Touch ID, with a Home button, can't be sidelined either.

Previously it has been rumoured that the smartphone may feature a slightly larger 4.2-inch display, 2GB RAM, 32GB or 128GB inbuilt storage. This may mean the device could be made out of glass and metal, something that in turn indicates the arrival of wireless charging. And although Tim Cook reportedly has no intention of lowering the iPhone X price anytime soon, an updated iPhone SE may be Apple's solution for the many consumers who aren't looking to drop a thousand dollars on their phone.
