Apple’s iPhone 8 Launch Could Delay By 3 weeks
The launch of the Apple’s next-generation iPhone could be pushed further into October or beyond. The latest report from the Bank of America who recently visited the Apple’s suppliers in Asia states that the release of the iPhone 8 could be virtually postponed for three weeks or more due to OLED display and 3D sense technological issues that need to be fixed on the model.
According to Merrill Lynch, the analyst at the Bank of America, Apple iPhone shipments can be estimated to reach 11 million for this year due to the expected delays in the launch of the product on the market.
Another report earlier in the week also unanimously claimed that the launch of the newest iPhone model will be pushed to October or latest November. The newest report has added more weight to the possibility of delays in shipping the iPhone 8 to the market. The launch, however, will be in the great moment for the holiday season in December when people are expected to have heightened their shopping.
Previous reports in the recent past revealed that Apple is planning to incorporate the 3D tech probably on the front and back cameras of the device. The new technology will enable users to experience the facial recognition, enhance reality applications and other unique features that will make the model stand out from the rest on the market.
The OLED display panels and 3D sensors are anticipated to be provided only on the 5.8-inch iPhone 8 device. Hence, other models from the company including the newly upgraded 4.7-inch or 5.5-inch iPhone models will not have the latest features. Another report claims that Apple had signed a two-year contract with Samsung to supply them with curved iPhone OLED display panels of over 92 million panels in before the year ends.
The tech supplies are not expected to be curved and edged out as those found on the Samsung Galaxy S8 device. Apple has not announced the launch date for the latest Smartphone but reports indicate that the release is likely to be in September due to technical issues.
