IPhone 8 Launch is Expected to be the Biggest Phone Launch Ever

Today, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has published a report supporting the theory that Apple will debut the OLED iPhone in September, but the device will face "severe supply shortages" for some time. Last week, Bloomberg reported that supply constraints would delay the launch.

The latest prototype of the redesigned iPhone 8 uses slightly curved glass on the front and back and is "similar conceptually" to the iPhone 4.

Meanwhile, the iPhone 7S will be a more "iterative" update over the current model.

The phone also looks to be visibly fatter than the existing iPhone 7, although exact dimensions have yet to be revealed.

The expert goes so far as to say that the dual camera of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will be much better than the one on the iPhone 7 Plus and will "likely match" the one on the upcoming organic light-emitting diode (OLED) iPhone.

The reports come amid claims of production issues for some of the custom components Apple has ordered.

It's entirely possible that these are both somewhat legitimate, as Apple probably hasn't finalized the iPhone 8's design at this point and may be trying to determine what's possible.

Apple fans will agree to the fact that they are impatiently waiting for Apple to unveil its 10th anniversary special iPhone, possibly dubbed as iPhone 8. Along with this, the same integration will also be incorporated for the front camera and the proximity sensors seen on the upper part of the phone. The two corporations recently signed a two-year contract for $9 billion which requires Samsung to ship between 70 and 92 million screen panels to Apple in 2017 alone.

According to his sources and estimates, the iPhone 8 is running two months behind schedule if it's to fulfil mass production supply requirements.

Customers eager to buy Apple's most exciting iPhone upgrade in three years may have wait longer than expected. But many enthusiasts strongly believe that more information about the handset would most likely be unveiled - specifically its release date - in fall of 2017.

It's thought the next smartphone from Apple will include a number of exciting new features with faster A11 processor, improved cameras and wireless charging all expected.
