New Report Suggests Apple Could Delay ‘iPhone 8’ Establish to November or October
New Report Suggests Apple Could Delay ‘iPhone 8’ Intro to October or November Apple could delay its rumored luxury iPhone using a 5.8-inch edge-to-edge OLED screen until October or even November, according to a new report on Wednesday.
In the last few decades, Apple has released it’s iPhone updates in September, but based on Chinese-language Economic Daily News (EDN), most suppliers are encountering “technical problems” from the creation of their forthcoming iPhone 8, due to differences in the screen lamination process and challenges involved in integrating the 3D sensing front camera system.
The report tallies with a rumor that circulated suggesting the 8 may go on sale later than usual, due to the change to an OLED display and the technologies needed. The launching of an iPhone 7s and 7s Plus would go in September as scheduled.
Such a staggered release could be highly untypical of Apple, and it’s difficult to imagine the company holding a September launch event for “S” cycle iPhones with no mention of the rumored OLED device. It is possible found in limited quantities or at a later date although that the phone could be revealed at precisely the same time. Barclays analysts recently asserted that Apple would launch its own “10th anniversary iPhone” from the usual September interval, albeit in short supply until a full stock arrives at the fourth quarter.
This week it was noted that Apple had put an order for 70 million panels in Samsung, expecting demand. Samsung is preparing to have the ability to produce around 95 million panels in 2017, said the sources.
Market watchers are thought to be examining the pull-in of orders for passive components from the iPhone’s supply chain to determine whether production of the iPhone apparatus is on track, based on EDN. Apart from the OLED screen, the 8, is expected to contain 3D facial recognition and iris, no physical Home button, and perhaps wireless charging. Rumors indicate that Touch ID could be embedded beneath a genuine Tone display.
