IPhone 8 Launch Might Be Pushed Further Because of These Issues

Today, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has published a report supporting the theory that Apple will debut the OLED iPhone in September, but the device will face "severe supply shortages" for some time.

"Production ramp up of OLED iPhone could be delayed to October-November (previously estimated to be August-September, as in previous years)", Kuo's reports reads.

Apple is expected to launch a redesigned iPhone model this fall based around a next-generation display technology called OLED, and Wall Street analysts believe it could cost a lot more than the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.

Kuo isn't the first analyst to predict a delayed iPhone 8 release. He suggests that most people will be willing to wait for it to be available, even if this means holding off their upgrade cycle until early next year.

Do make a note that these are unverified photos from the source and it looks like they are CNC dummy models of the iPhone 8 chassis. For the Apple iPhone 8, the report claimed that Apple will use an edge-to-edge OLED screen display provided by the South Korean OEM Samsung, echoing a recent Nikkei report which stated that Apple placed orders for about 70 million OLED display panels from Samsung.

The iPhone 8 release date is approaching fast. iPhone usage in America is at an all-time high. With the OLED iPhone availability set to be very limited, it has reduced his estimates to 80-90 million units. It is also speculated that the phone would feature dual front cameras. We've heard rumblings that Apple is having trouble readying its new in-display fingerprint scanner for mass production, and one option the company is supposedly toying with is relocating the Touch ID sensor to the back of the phone.

There are also rumors that Apple is testing about 10 different prototypes so the final design of the iPhone 8 is still up in the air and that we will know it by September.

Kuo goes on to speculate the delay will also likely leave a dent in Apple's calendar year sales, indicating competitors could take advantage of the extra time Apple needs for production to launch their own bezel-less handsets to rival the new iPhone.
