It’s tough not to be intrigued by the glistening iPhone X, but that doesn’t suggest folks are going to cough up a grand regarding Apple’s most advanced handset yet.
According to Reuters, a study of 1, 112 iPhone users from the brokerage firm Bernstein demonstrated that will although the public will likely still purchase a “substantial” number of iPhones, that number refuses to match the general enthusiasm people have for that latest shiny Apple product. Â
Preorders for the iPhone X start on Oct. 27, and they begin shipping Nov. 3.
âThe excitement surrounding the iPhone X appears to be magnitudes higher than actual purchase intent âÂ 48 percent of respondents agreed/strongly agreed that they were âexcited for the iPhone X,’â Bernstein told Reuters. Â
Just about half of those excited about the iPhone By, however , said they would actually get one. Â
It’s unclear what kind of demand Apple was truly planning on from a phone that takes a substantial leap in both cost and technologies. The iPhone 8 Plus starts in $799, which is $200 less than the particular 64 GB iPhone X providing (as opposed to $1, 149 for that 256 GB model). In addition , the apple iphone X comes with the exciting though questionable face-scanning tech, Face ID. Â
“Substantial” iPhone X purchases might still be good news for Apple’s anticipation (and bottom line). It’s also not likely that the company will produce a lot of iPhone X’s, due to production difficulties at the sprawling Chinese factory that will churns them out. Â
The survey revealed other good news regarding Apple, illustrating that customer commitment “remains remarkably strong. ” Simply three percent of surveyed apple iphone users said their next cell phone purchase would not be an iPhone. Â
