iPhone X may cost Apple $50 million more if it attempts to house OLED display.
Although, the quarters 1 and 2 will have a flat margin at around 38.8 but the incremental rise in the expenses is something that might take down the game to lower ebbs, Cowen & Company’s Timothy Arcuri analyses in AppleInsider.
The new development offers some very obvious edges over conventional LCD that range from low cost to lower battery consumption.
However, the problem is how to have it?
Very few suppliers have got facilities to facilitate a company like Apple on its desired terms on such a massive scale.
Therefore, it is reported that Samsung could be the potential supplier to Apple, as it had already displayed OLED features in its Galaxy S6 and S7 smartphones, as well as in Galaxy Note 7.
Owing to the outstanding results in Apple’s December-quarter, Arcuri expects that as much as 76 million iPhone shipments must be possible.
Although, the expected score does not give any startling look, especially if compared with previous scales, the considerable rise in iPhone 7 Plus has got all hopes and positive opinions back on track.
Let’s have a look at the product lines.
- Analysis expects 13.5 million iPads
- 4 million Apple Watches.
The company is counting very high on Smart Watch Series 2 and might start its own official quarterly reports on numbers.
Similarly, Arcuri’s March quarter predictions are as follows:
- 5 million iPhones
- 10 million iPads
- 5 million Watches
- And importantly, the expected growth through iPhone X.
The numbers in December quarterly are competing and encouraging for the company, which was facing the first revenue shortfall in 2016.
