Apple Inc. (AAPL) OLED iPhone 8 Delayed Til Nov-Dec

Instead, the two companies are expected to share orders as with the iPhone 6s.

A new iPhone launch is always preceded with nearly an unending stream of rumors, speculations, leaks, renders. This means the sales peak is more likely to be reached in 2018, and analysts have predicted a strong year for Apple, mostly because of the iPhone 8. The smartphone is set to feature a radical new bezel-less design with an edge-to-edge display that will reportedly have the best screen to body ratio in the market.

The reports surfaced from a new development claiming that Samsung will be in charge of producing next year's iPhone 8S chipsets - a deal which has, since 2013, been exclusive to TSMC.

Apple iPhone 8's last outline (in light of CAD documents) was put out by Forbes' Gordon Kelly, who worked with iPhone case architect firm Nodus on the same.

Production of the OLED-version next-generation iPhone will be delayed to November-December, shipping only in small volumes initially, according to a Chinese-language Economic Daily News (EDN) report.

"We have rendered these to visualize the final design, and I can confirm that, despite problems, fears Apple would fall back on a less ambitious "Plan B" are unfounded", he wrote on Sunday, alongside a series of images. Those OLED panels can be in short supply, the advanced 3D cameras apparently need software refinement and even the location of the Touch ID sensor seemed to be causing Apple designers fits. The report didn't say exactly what's wrong, but it appears that Apple needs far more units to hit so-called "mass production", or the level at which a boatload of units will ship worldwide.

There are also few reports that are doing the rounds citing a research note from Deutsche Bank stating that due to "key components storage" and "technical challenges" the shipment of iPhone 8 could be delayed.

Apple wanted to give iPhone 8 users a new, secure way to unlock their device.
