The report suggested that this insider is nearly certain that Apple will delay the release of iPhone 8. Alternatively, as several rumors have suggested thus far, Apple could simply delay the iPhone 8 flagship until adequate production yields have been achieved - shipping the device in October or November, while still announcing it alongside its iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus counterparts in September.
Whichever option, it seems Apple faces multiple challenges to achieve whatever technological advancements they are integrating into the iPhone 8.
"This is not the first time that we've heard about a potential delay with a new iPhone; however, our contact was so emphatic about the delay that we are taking this data point more seriously". Recalling a report from last week, Apple is reportedly facing some technical issues relating to the lamination process of curved OLED panels and delayed adoption of a 3D sensing system which is why the availability of the 5.8-inch iPhone 8 might be delayed a few weeks. Essentially Wong said that Apple may not be the first company to implement 3D sensing capabilities as it is likely to be pipped by Chinese companies like Huawei, OPPO and Vivo, BGR.com reports. Apart from accommodating a number of advanced facial recognition, the camera will also be able to take 3D selfies; thanks to its OLED displays.
Of course, we can only hope these rumors don't turn out to be true, especially since Touch ID on the rear-side of the iPhone 8 would hardly be a revolutionary achievement. 850 Dollars converts to Rs 55,100 which is pretty similar to what Samsung Galaxy S8 will retail in the United States.
The first option, which he admits is unlikely is to ditch Touch ID and rely exclusively on facial recognition.
White firmly believes that iPhone 8 will come in time as a Christmas present.
