Current Trend

Apple iPhone price slide lower as we see more sell off in the month of May. We see an increase sell off for iPhone 7 across different storage sizes, particularly iPhone 7 (128GB). 

Huawei buy-back came to a halt when Google cuts off Huawei phone from future Android updates. This create a panic in the resale market for Huawei as buyers are afraid of facing the possibilities of getting a bricked phone. Also all phone traders stop taking in Huawei phone since the announcement. 

US ban Huawei
We notice an increase in buy-back of Samsung S8 and S9. This may due to an upgrade to S10 or S10+.  We foresee more sell off in the month of June for these two models and price will erode further.
