A delayed iPhone 8 launch isn't necessarily bad news.
The phone also looks to be visibly fatter than the existing iPhone 7, although exact dimensions have yet to be revealed. We have been receiving a number of reports from all over Apple's supply chain that two handsets will be marginal upgrades to the current generation iPhone, but there will be a third version with stainless steel chassis covered by curved glass on the front and back.
This includes a custom OLED display panel, a custom Apple A11 10-nanometer SoC, an all-new designed 3D Touch module and 3D sensing cameras. Another risk comes from competitors Samsung, Huawei, OPPO, Vivo and Xiaomi, which are getting ready to release "high-end full-screen smartphones" this year, which could impact sales of the iPhone 7S and 7S Plus because those iPhones "do not have full-screen form factors", Kuo said.
The iPhone 8 (another possible name being thrown around is iPhone X), alongside the more iterative updates to iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, is expected to be announced in September.
LVMH to consolidate hold on Dior in multibillion-euro deal
LVMH already owns Parfums Christian Dior , while Christian Dior Couture was controlled by the family-owned Groupe Arnault. Christian Dior in turn owns 41 percent of the shares and 56.8 percent of the voting rights in LVMH .
An official announcement of the new iPhone 8 is still expected this September given that Apple is reportedly planning to introduce an iPhone 7S at the same time. However, it seems fans wanting the all-new phone will have to wait a bit longer to get their hands on the iPhone 8.
As the Cupertino-based tech giant has not yet confirmed any of the rumors surrounding iPhone 8's specs, release date or price, readers are advised to take the leaked information with a hefty pinch of salt.
Another report is warning of severe supply constraints for the iPhone 8 due to a delayed production ramp up.
According to 9To5Mac, a couple of new leaked iPhone 8 pictures have been spotted online. If the 7S and 7S Plus hit the market a month or two earlier, it might make buying a new iPhone in the fall an unusually complex decision. We've heard rumblings that Apple is having trouble readying its new in-display fingerprint scanner for mass production, and one option the company is supposedly toying with is relocating the Touch ID sensor to the back of the phone.
