With the delayed mass production for the iPhone 8, KGI has revised its expected sales for the new iPhones, namely the iPhone 7s, the iPhone 7s Plus, and the iPhone 8. According to Kou this Monday, Apple will not be able to launch the iPhone 8 until October or November 2017.

He also believes Apple might launch two other devices this fall that are more similar to the current iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, without pricey OLED screens. This is year is special, because Apple is expected to launch a third new model of the iPhone, on the occasion of the tenth anniversary of its hero product.

It isn't clear as to what Apple would name this third iPhone model, but the rumour mill so far hints at iPhone 8, iPhone X or the iPhone Edition, which would also hint at it premium price tag.

No official word yet coming from Apple about its upcoming iPhone 8 flagship. We already knew the iPhone 8 will face delays, as multiple reports detailed some of Apple's component-related problems.

Another report suggests that Drexel Hamilton analyst Brian White also said that the iPhone 8 could be delayed due to challenges around 3-D sensing technology.

With more and more iPhone rumors reaching the surface with every passing day, a report from a more familiar and trusted source has reached us today. The new leak corroborates previous rumors regarding the inclusion of a vertical rectangle pattern for the new dual camera.

The comments came as the federal government tabled legislation on Thursday to legalize cannabis for recreational use in 2018. Possession of small amounts of pot will be legal throughout the country on July 1, 2018, if the legislation passes.

Due to such technological issues, the S8 had to relocate fingerprint scanning home button to the back of the device.

Kuo's assessment adds to the mounting evidence of a delayed - or, at least, severely supply constrained - iPhone 8.

Most importantly, one of the leaked photos shows that the iPhone 8 won't have the fingerprint scanner at the back, which wasn't a welcoming change. The DigiTimes reported recently Apple inked a $9 billion two-year contract deal with Samsung for OLED display supplies.

Samsung has just released its Galaxy S8 which now includes an nearly bezel-free design and it looks stunning.

However, as mentioned before, there is a lot of time till the release of the iPhone 8 and nothing can be said for sure. Just a month ago, we shared that the new iPhone 8 will feature a curved OLED screen and it looks like it's really going towards that direction plus more.
