The Apple iPhone X was quite the popular gift around the holidays, and with its high-rez OLED display, augmented reality abilities and sleek design, it flew off the shelves at a $1,000 or more. But with the holidays over, it looks like Apple is going to cut production of the X because of dwindling demand in the U.S., China and Europe.
Apple is likely cutting production levels and may be rethinking their OLED-based iPhone plans for the future. The OLED screen in the iPhone X is expensive, and comes from competitor Samsung, just two more reasons Tim Cook and company are contemplating whether the OLED will be in future phones.
It is speculated that the only iPhone to get an OLED screen this year could be a larger iPhone X Plus-type model with a 6.5-inch screen. The rest of the upcoming lineup will get the traditional LCD screens. We should find out about Apple’s OLED future just about the time summer starts.
