KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, unveiled his thoughts with regard to sales that Apple achieved next year. Ming predicts that the Cupertino company will have a record number of iPhone sales by about 150 million units in the second half of 2017. Moreover, the analyst concluded that a 4.7 - inch iPhone 8 should appear with a screen LCD, glass housing and wireless charging.
The speculation of the analyst is closely related, by the latent rumor of a high-end iPhone 8 model that would have new industrial design, OLED screen and other notably superior specifications.
Kuo's analysis was captured in a note that was given to his clients. In this note, the following excerpt can be highlighted:
"Our foundation is as follows: (1) the OLED model may trigger the demand for replacement among high-end users, due to the new design factor and notably higher specifications compared to TFT-LCD models; And (2) the new 4.7-inch iPhone, with glass cover and wireless charging, looks well positioned to take advantage of the replacement demand at the entry level. "
It seems that the company Pegatron would exclusively be in charge of mounting the device of 4.7 inches and build its wireless charger.
Kuo, along with other analysts, basically three new iPhones expected in the coming year: the premium based on technology OLED screen and surround and 4.7 models and 5.5 - inch chassis change to glass and metal They have traditional TFT LCD displays.
Assuming your prediction iPhone sales by about 120 million units in the second half of 2017 is true, the Cupertino company can beat the record of previous release of 110 million units for the iPhone 6, which remains the model phone Apple's best-selling.
