Apple registers several new iPhone models in Eurasia

Stunning: The iPhone X Generated 5X more Profit than the Combined Profit of 600+ Android OEMs during Q4 2017

According to a report from Counterpoint Research, Apple's iPhone X accounted for 35 percent of the total worldwide smartphone profits int Q4 2017.

Counterpoint Research just released a report showing a detailed analysis of Q4 2017 smartphone industry profitability.

At No. 3 on the list is Apple iPhone 8 Plus with 15.2% profit share of the total smartphone industry.

Apple and Samsung flagship models lead in terms of profits as compared to other OEMs, with iPhone X alone generating 35pc of the total handset industry profits even though it was on sale for only the final two months of the year.

Global handset profits declined 1% year-on-year in Q4 2017 (October-December) as the premium smartphone market did not grow as expected. This shouldn't be much of a surprise, of course, since Samsung literally wrote the book on copying Apple's iPhone designs. In Q4 2017, the cumulative profit of Chinese OEMs crossed $1.3 billion which was largely driven by the sales of mid-to-high end smartphones. The company maintained 8 out of 10 top most profitable handsets in the world.

iPhone X, as recently told analysts, is a smartphone that is for its developers and distributors really brings the considerable sums of money.

According to Counterpoint Research, AAPL took 86% of overall smartphone industry profit for the quarter. However, looks like the fears were unfounded, as fresh data suggests that the iPhone X has indeed turned out to be a cash cow for Apple. While all these models are registered as Apple smartphones, all running on iOS 11, this makes us believe that some of these could be part of the upcoming iPhone SE 2 lineup.

The iPhone X made much more money for Apple compared to the profit of all Android smartphones combined in the fourth quarter of a year ago.

Apple's older generation iPhones, iPhone 7 and iPhone 6 still generate more profit than some of the more recent Android flagships from key Chinese OEMs.

Apple has reportedly begun the production of iPhone X 2018, iPhone X Plus and reportedly the iPhone 9 as well in the month of April so that they can be ready to start shipping the product in September this year.

Commenting on the performance of Chinese brands, Associate Director, Tarun Pathak, highlighted, "Chinese OEMs cumulative profits crossed 1.3 United States dollars billion during Q4 2017".

The current iPhone SE is offered in A1662, A1723 GSM, A1723 CDMA, and A1724 variants, and most iPhones are similarly made in four versions, each specifically tested with a different collection of LTE bands.
