The companies that make parts for Apple are suggesting that production of Apple's redesigned "OLED" iPhone might not start until October or November, as opposed to August and September, as in previous years.

However, over the long term, Kuo believes that the mass production delay and subsequent supply shortage will not undermine the demand for the iPhone 8.

Samsung is looking to up the ante in the imaging department with the highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy Note 8, if the latest report is anything to go by.

The Apple iPhone 8, which could also be called the iPhone Edition - and actually be released as a third model with the iPhone 7S and iPhone 7S Plus - has appeared.

Moreover, KGI has a more pessimistic outlook about the iPhone 7s models (iterative updates to the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus with internal component upgrades contained in the same chassis design) than before.

The iPhone 8 release date is approaching fast. iPhone usage in America is at an all-time high. However, a recently surfaced piece of information might disappoint many Apple fans as the iPhone 8 might get delayed by several months. The iPhone 8 is expected to be a milestone in the iPhone release history as it will be released on the 10th anniversary of the iPhone.

Moreover, if what we are seeing in the images is indeed the gen-next iPhone 8 smartphone, it does not feature a Touch-ID home button in the front, like Apple always used to. Despite these production difficulties, Kuo said that the iPhone 8's announcement and launch time of the new iPhones will remain similar to previous years, suggesting the usual September iPhone event from Apple.

Geskin also published what he claims is a leaked schematic diagram showing what components will sit underneath the screen of the iPhone 8. Apple is also rumored to be adding wireless charging and a front-facing camera with Kinect-like abilities to track motion in 3D. This will be the first time that Apple will adopt a curved OLED screen for its iPhones. Of course, we'll have to wait until the fall to know for sure, but the excitement certainly builds with every new rumor. The accuracy of these renderings is not yet clear as it has always been rumored that the new iPhone 8 will include a fingerprint sensor located below the display.
