While the iPhone 8 is about to go on sale this September 23, Apple has made a new announcement. The company plans to release the new smartphone a couple of months after the iPhone 8 begins it sales. Apple is calling their new flagship iPhone X (pronounced as iPhone ten).
Shouldn’t we expect an iPhone 9 after iPhone 8? Apple seems to have taken a leap in the model.
Experts say that this is merely a marketing strategy – we did see something similar in Windows too when the giant software company skipped Windows 9 when they released Windows 10 after Windows 8.
One explanation to could be that Apple completes 10 years in the production of iPhone. This phone marks ten years of iPhone and naming it iPhone X comes in naturally.
Also, Samsung recently launched Galaxy S8 and Note 8 would soon be available from September 15. When Samsung has Galaxy 8 and Note 8 in their box an iPhone 7S or 7S Plus wouldn’t be equivalent.
Naming the device above the iPhone 8 makes it special. Although the name is meant to denote iPhone ten no one is actually going to pronounce it. Instead, they would call it iPhone X. Apple understands this and this is why uses X in its promotional videos.
If they would have launched three phones and named them iPhone 8, iPhone 9 and iPhone X people would definitely be confused which model to buy. This difference in name and model makes it easier for people to choose which one to buy.
It would be easier for them to distinguish between two flagships and decide which one to buy.
This marketing trick of Apple seems to be quite interesting, let’s see how fans respond to this. Also, what would Apple name its next iPhone or will there be an iPhone XS?
