Analyst Says iPhone 8 Release Will Be Extended To 2017 Holidays
While the enthusiasm keeps building up for the iPhone 8, Apple might actually not be able to release it on time. According to analyst Brian White, the anniversary iPhone could be skipping Apple's traditional launch month of September. Apparently, the company might still be facing some parts-related problems with the iPhone 8, hence the delay is being called for.
As per Phone Arena, White said that the 3D sense technology of the iPhone 8 that would allow the front camera to do facial recognition is giving Apple some troubles. What exactly the problem is, it has not been specified. Nevertheless, White added that this feature alongside the OLED display will be exclusive to the iPhone 8. The iPhone 7S and 7S Plus that are also coming in this year will have non-premium specs and be just regular successors to the current iPhones on the market.
Samsung and Apple have already come to an agreement that the former will provide the iPhone-maker up to 95 million OLED panels for the iPhone 8 alone. Nevertheless, Apple might go all-OLED thereafter wherein all of its future iPhones starting 2018 will no longer be using LCD.
As far as the 2017 iPhones' release date is concerned, however, the analyst said that Apple will be able to start pre-orders on September only for the iPhones 7S and 7S Plus. The expensive iPhone 8, on the other hand, will be delayed for a few months but will still be coming in time for the holidays. Apple usually takes home the most sales during the holiday season so there is no doubt that the company will take advantage of this timeframe to have the iPhone 8 released. Just last year, Apple was able to sell a record 78.3 units during the first fiscal quarter which includes the month of December. With the expected high-price of the iPhone 8, it's safe to say that if the phone's feedback does well, Apple can once again expect record-highs in terms of iPhone 2017 sales.
