Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s new iPhone 8 will not be on the shelves not until later in the year. The company’s loyalists have been in expectation of the release of the next-generation iPhone but rumor has it that they may have to bear a disappointment. A new report out of China, the source of the iconic Smartphone highlights a problem with the iPhone’s display as the reason for the delayed release.
Alongside iPhone 8, Apple will also be releasing another two iPhone models
Apple has been on record as being extremely secretive with its operations of any new launch. The release of iPhone 8, which is likely to change its name to “iPhone Edition,” was to mark the company’s tenth anniversary. However, it was to be accompanied by the release of new iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus models which will adopt LCD displays.
Sources familiar with the latest speculations have revealed that the three handsets are likely to sport wireless charging and True Tone. This comes with the ability to adjust color temperatures depending on the immediate room temperature.
This year’s iPhone is widely rumored to be a complete redesign
From one end to another the rumor mill on how the new iPhone 8 will look like continues. After all, the Cupertino-based tech giant is known for throwing in surprises every now and then. However, it is obvious that the device will be more revamped than those launched in the previous years.
There is mention of 3D-sensors being featured on the premium iPhone 8, which will allow facial recognition. Apple insiders the likes of KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says that the glass face of the device will be covered with the new OLED display that Apple is adopting.
This could be the sole reason why Apple has placed an order of 70 million OLED panels with Samsung. Other chitchats suggest that the iPhone 8 will have stainless steel sides and that the back is made of glass, which will make the addition of wireless charging easier.
