Apple’s new iPhone X differs very greatly from the other iPhones like the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus. We’re not talking about hardware specs, but rather its design and features in which the iPhone X will offer up an edge-to-edge display, a new facial recognition security system, an OLED screen, and more.

As you can imagine, these are very tempting features which is why according to KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, he expects that pre-orders for the iPhone X could reach as high as 50 million units. Kuo goes on to add that he believes that the Face ID security feature will be one of the main selling points, although we guess we’ll have to wait for reviews to see how well it actually performs.

Unfortunately as Kuo had previously pointed out, the iPhone X could face supply issues due to production issues with the TrueDepth camera, and that it is possible that only in 2018 that we can expect supply to catch up with demand. While this isn’t necessarily a bad thing, it could have an impact on Apple’s other iPhones.

For example we’ve heard reports that the iPhone X could be hurting the iPhone 8 sales and that pre-orders of the iPhone 8 are lower than its predecessors. This is apparently due to customers deciding to hold out for the iPhone X which is due this November.
