Summary

Mobile phones declined in 2Q18, and smartphones grew only slightly, owing to marginal upgrade benefits. The slowdown was more in high-end rather than mid/entry-tier smartphones. Although iPhone X demand exceeded iPhone 8/8 Plus demand, investor focus will now shift to new phones expected in 3Q18.
