Apple’s iPhone may be in for a struggle in China despite a record breaking quarter.

Technology giant Apple could see its iPhone sales under pressure in mainland China amid lingering uncertainty in the world’s second-largest economy, according to analysts. The prediction followed Apple’s announcement this week of record iPhone unit shipments and sales in its fiscal third quarter ending June 27, powered by high demand in its “greater China” market – comprising the mainland, Hong Kong and Taiwan. These images have leaked out from the Chinese wireless regulator Tenaa and unearthed by Engadget, ahead of the expected July 27th announcement of the OnePlus Two. We already knew that the device should feature USB Type-C and fingerprint scanner—in fact, you can see the presence of the latter in the above images.

Analysts, however, remain convinced that mainland China’s stock market crisis and weakness in overall smartphone demand signal a continued slowdown that could impact domestic iPhone sales in the near term. Ken Hui, equity analyst at Jefferies, said in a report on Wednesday that those factors are “putting pressure on discretionary consumption”, which could lead to iPhone demand in “becoming shaky”. “We have begun to see similar signs of weakness in sectors such as autos and property [in mainland China] … we may see stronger pressure in the third quarter if our expectations come true.” Apple’s greater China revenue last quarter showed a 21 per cent decrease to US$13.2 billion, down from US$16.8 billion in the previous quarter to March. The camera’s placed a bit lower on the back of the phone, and there’s a physical button on the front of the device which will most likely serve as both a home button and a fingerprint scanner.

In terms of what’s inside, OnePlus has already offered up a reasonably detailed breakdown of specs: you can expect a Snapdragon 810 CPU, 4GB of RAM, 13-megapixel camera, dual SIMs and a 3,300mAh battery. One thing we still don’t know is how much the OnePlus 2 will cost: the company says it’ll have a starting price below $450, but it’s not clear how much below that price it will be. Cook said Apple has kept its focus on first-time iPhone buyers, including those who make the switch from using Android smartphones. “We’re still seeing very, very large numbers in the countries that you would want to see those in, like China, Russia and Brazil,” he said. But that phone made a pretty big splash, partly due to a series of PR stunts, but largely due to its value proposition: the OnePlus One offered high-end specs at a mid-range price.
