The premium iPhone 8 is expected to be introduced later this year. We are now several months away from the launch of the iPhone. However, it seems that we have to wait a little longer to get our hands into the new iPhone. Sources say that the release of iPhone 8 could be pushed back to October on two different occasions.
Recently, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has just rolled out an analyst note predicting that Apple may have to deal with difficulties in the iPhone 8 production. Moreover, Apple may face “severe supply shortages” of the new device. Specifically, Kuo wrote in his note that the premium iPhone 8 production will be delayed to November this year. This means that the iPhone 8 will make its debut later than usual.
According to Kuo, there will be a serious shortage of supply that could run through November this year after the company officially releases this device in September. Despite not being so positive about the launch of iPhone 8, Kuo still hopes that the premium iPhone 8 will be introduced at Apple’s annual event in September.
Apple is believed to launch up to three up to three iPhone models this year including a premium device, an iPhone 7s and an iPhone 7s Plus. The high-end phone is expected to come with OLED display, long-range wireless charging, Apple’s latest chipset and 3D sensors for augmented reality and bio-metric security measures.
According to sources, all three variants of iPhone will include wireless charging, but OLED display will only be featured on the premium model. Next month, Apple will hold an event to showcase new versions of iOS, tvOS and watchOS. Besides, Apple is also expected to launch a smart speaker at the event.
