It will hit shelves sooner than the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. In terms of price, performance, as well as design, this is essentially the “iPhone 7S” version but was renamed. There is an opinion that Apple did so to compete with Samsung, when the Korean giant had the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note8.
Because if you compare the two suffixes 7S and 8, the iPhone sounds less attractive. Therefore, they were forced to leapfrog the new name. Meanwhile, some comments that this is essentially an Apple marketing move.
Meaning users are looking forward to an iPhone 7S. but the company launched the iPhone 8 – higher than expected. In this way, Apple will attract the attention of users, thereby, achieving better sales.
If this is really Apple’s intention, then what is the company planning? Let’s take a look at some hypotheses that revolve the disappearance of iPhone 9 at this time…
The iPhone X came with a configuration, features, and a higher price than the iPhone 8. In other words, this is a more advanced version. Although Apple calls this “iPhone 10”, on paper it is still iPhone X.
A lot of users also call this the iPhone X, not the number 10 as the leader of Apple said. Of course, Apple knows that and they intentionally do so. By the number 10, or X is actually just the pronunciation. The true desire of CEO Tim Cook is to create curiosity and mystery for users.
If the device is actually called the iPhone 10, it is nothing special compared to the iPhone 8. And obviously, if the number is 10, people will immediately ask the question: Where is the iPhone 9, as mentioned counter above. So, iPhone X, or iPhone 10 is just a trick to understand no more, no less.
