If you want the iPhone X, you have to pay attention at launch

From today it's a week to start booking the iPhone X. As it could not be otherwise, the KG analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo has published a new report that indicates that there are actually production problems .

According to Kuo, the biggest obstacle is likely to be the flexible printed circuit board (FPCB) of the device antenna, due to the greater complexity of this. Special materials, design, processes, equipment and tests for the FPCB antenna , such as specifications for the iPhone X antenna (supplied by Amphenol) are required and are higher than those of the iPhone 8 and only Murata and Carrera Tech can comply with the strict requirements of Apple.

Murata (originally with an order allocation of 60% or higher) will not be able to solve their problems before 2018, and therefore has been completely replaced by a second provider . It is believed that the race will rise in November, when production can take a more appropriate turn

A secondary stumbling block seems to have been the FPCB for the wide-angle rear camera lens. Unlike smartphones competing with Samsung and Huawei's dual-lens camera, the iPhone X's wide-angle and telephoto lenses use separate PCBs, and Interflex has reportedly encountered quality problems from the Wide angle lens.

The third bottleneck that has received significant attention in recent weeks is the TrueDepth camera's infrared spot projector , or the component called "Romeo." According to Kuo, previous design problems that led to poor facial recognition have been addressed and the "worst has already happened".

Overall, Kuo is trimming its iPhone X shipment estimates for the fourth quarter of 25-30 million units, up from 30-35 million, and expecting 2-3 million units to be sent to distribution channels before launch . As a result, initial supplies will be very tight, as has been widely rumored. Kuo says shipments will resume normalcy in the first quarter of 2018.
