The new iPhone will also come with dual rear cameras in a vertical setup and will come with iOS 11, we are expecting it to launch some time in September. However, it could very well be a strategic move on Apple's part to ensure that their OLED iPhone has strong sales throughout Q1 2018 to counter announcements coming out of Mobile World Congress between February 26 and March 1, 2018.

The images point towards the iPhone 8 coming with an 5.8-inch OLED display with a "notch" or cutout at the top for the sensors and front facing camera similar to the implementation found on Andy Rubin's delayed Essential-PH1 smartphone.

The Chinese-language Economic Daily News claims all of the delays will push the iPhone 8 back to November or December, with only "small volumes" of the devices shipping initially.

According to the WSJ, the new phone is expected to feature an edge-to-edge OLED display like the Samsung Galaxy S8 that went on sale in April.

This year there are three different styles of iPhone, namely the 4.7-inch TFT-LCD screen iPhone 7s, the 5.5-inch TFT-LCD screen iPhone 7s Plus, and the iPhone 8, which is equipped with OLED. We've been hearing numerous reports that suggest Apple is struggling to get its new phones ready for the fall launch. This rumor claims that the iPhone 8 will in fact have a Touch ID sensor under the enlarged power button on the side of the smartphone.


Apple was forced to purchase the equipment, at a cost of "tens of millions of dollars", after one of its Taiwanese manufacturers backed out of a deal to produce RF PCBs for the iPhone 8 at the last minute. Another report suggests that Apple will be relying on this face scanning feature to unlock the upcoming iPhone.

Delays of Apple's next iPhone model may get longer - and more widespread - than expected.

Additionally, if Apple is seemingly having this much trouble bringing these products into mass production, then that could be an indication that the devices feature relatively aggressive hardware designs.
