Many businesses in Hongkong look down on the new iPhone market, saying the risk of speculation is big this year.

BEIJING, Sept. 12 (Xinhua) According to the Hong Kong "Wen Hui Bao" reported that Apple will hold a press conference in the early morning of the 13th, the outside world speculation will launch three new iPhones. Hong Kong's "mecca" Mongkok Square, a number of merchants to see the new iPhone sales market, frankly said that this year's speculation is extremely risky.

According to a report, the owner of a mobile phone store in Schinda Square, Mongkok, Hong Kong, said he believed that the big screen and "double cards" function were the biggest selling points this year and could attract a number of new users, but still looked down on the sales of the new iPhone.

He explained that now there are sufficient sales channels, major electrical chain stores, telecommunications companies also have goods, supply to meet market demand, it is difficult to raise prices.

He bluntly said that the price of the iPhone 4 used to be about 5,000 yuan (Hong Kong dollars, the same below), but now it is close to 10,000 yuan. He called on the public to pay attention to the great risk of speculation, it is estimated that a large number of shipments, so the store will not be a large number of receipts, there are orders will be closed, wait and see can be speculated for 2 weeks to 1 month.

Another shopkeeper pointed out that Apple's announcement of a new iPhone with a dual-card dual-wait feature would be a major boost to sales.

But the market has been quiet in recent years, and he admits he doesn't know if Apple's new features are on the rise, and that last year's sales of the iPhone X were not so good.

Another store clerk admitted that it is difficult to predict the sales of the new iPhone at this stage because it is mainly affected by the supply, and it is difficult to "stir up" once the supply is sufficient. He said he could not see through the market now.
