There Will Be No iPhone 8 This Coming September
Many are giddy with excitement while waiting for the iPhone 8 to finally be revealed. They might need to wait a little while longer.
The September launch of Apple's most anticipated smartphone ever will likely not push through. According to a report coming all the way from China, the iPhone 8 release may be delayed for a month or so due to manufacturing issues.
The report by "Economic Daily News", a Chinese publication, was picked up by DigiTimes which then shared that the next-generation iPhone may not see the light of day in September. Apple will be forced to go against tradition and release the iPhone 8 in October or even November.
According to the report, the main reason for the delay has something to do with the lamination process of the iPhone 8's curved OLED panels. As CNET noted, Apple is switching screens. The tech giant is finally shifting from LCD displays to OLED ones which will be provided by rival Samsung. As a matter of fact, Apple has already ordered 70 million OLED displays from the Korean conglomerate. The problem is that the process of switching screen takes time.
Another factor contributing to the delay of the flagship smartphone is the 3D Touch system. Apple's popular feature needs to be integrated to the OLED screens and this may further hold up the development and manufacturing processes of the tenth anniversary iPhone.
Not only will the shift from LCD to edge-to-edge OLED displays possibly cause a delay, it is also rumored to spike up the price of the iPhone 8 to more than $1,000. Despite these, Apple is said to be planning on using OLED displays on all its future smartphones and the iPhone 8 figures to be the company's jumping off point. That said, the iPhone 7S and 7S Plus will likely sport OLED displays once they are released within the year.
