Apple is not satisfied with the sales of the iPhone X

  • 3D Touch

After the launch of the iPhone X, quite a few Android devices surfaced with the famous notch in no time. Let us know in the comments.

The new iPhone will also include a new "touch film sensor" to the glass.

What the new iPhone will be called is also a matter of discussion with iPhone Plus being a much-voted candidate. iPhone 8S and iPhone 9 are already skipped with the launch of iPhone X, so there is no reason for Apple to go back in the naming convention.

According to KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the 6.1-inch LCD iPhone will use a new "Cover Glass Sensor" technology that will relocate the iPhone's touch module to the actual glass.

Apple is expected to keep this iPhone 2018 variant's price hedged lower, and to counter the CGS display's expensive cost, the Cupertino-based tech firm will have to remove the 3D Touch feature.

The 3D Touch feature was introduced with the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus.

So what will Apple replace 3D Touch with?

While results on Tuesday will likely show slower Apple growth, this broader iPhone strategy could revive sales when the new devices come out toward the end of 2018. Apple ditched the built-in headphone jack with the iPhone 7, and though some manufacturers followed its lead, competitor Samsung continues to offer the 3.5mm port on its flagship handsets.

A record-breaking expansion to Apple's capital returns scheme, set to be announced alongside its latest quarterly earnings this week, could help win over investors who have become preoccupied by concerns of a global slowdown in smartphone sales. The company is also planning to sell the iPhone X for a lot less money, this year around.

The main problem with 3D Touch is that it's expendable. To keep the price in check, these iPhones are likely to lose the 3D Touch technology as well.

Apple stock fell last month after one of its key chip suppliers warned of "continued weak demand".
