IPhone 8 pre-orders may begin in September

APPLE is gearing up for the new generation of its iPhone.

"The goal continues to be finalization of fingerprint sensor spec by May, but if the internal solution is not workable, assembly of this OLED version could be slightly postponed to Sept vs. the normal late July to August timeframe which would effectively delay shipment (although launch would still come in early Sept)", Arcuri wrote. That means only pre-orders for the new 5.8-inch iPhone 8 would be available for later deliveries. The company believes that Chinese OEMs (Huawei, Oppo, and Vivo) will likely introduce the technology before Apple (between when Apple announces the tech and a product hits the market) in the 1H18. Now an analyst however claims that this new feature is unlikely to be ready in time, and could be pushed to the iPhone 8s.


Apple and Samsung continue to rival for marketshare within the smartphone industry.

As reported by CNBC, the analyst Brian White sent a detailed note to investors explaining why his firm believes that Apple's 5.8-inch iPhone 8 won't arrive in September. Lastly, Apple could unveil the iPhone 8 along with the new Apple iPhone 7s and Apple iPhone 7s Plus, but delay the release of the premium model until it straightens out the problem with the low yields. The report added that Apple could sell as many as 90 million iPhones in the last three months of 2017. Some reports claim iPhone 8 may feature an edge-to-edge display and get rid of any bezels on the sides. This would make iPhone 8 look very similar to the iPhone 4s. Another option would be to move the Touch ID to the back of the iPhone, although that wouldn't be user friendly, Arcuri pointed out. Different models being passed around the company that incorporates some iPhone 8 variant with an LCD, while others utilize an AMOLED board, others incorporate a Home Button, while some have discarded the button completely.
