Apple iPhone 8: OLED display, possible launch delay and other rumours

Because Apple plans on eliminating buttons on the iPhone 8, allowing the screen to cover almost the entire front of the handset, the company planned on embedding the Touch ID fingerprint scanner under the screen.

Apple's upcoming iPhone 8 flagship is expected to boast a laundry list of next-generation technologies, including a massive 5.8-inch OLED display, wireless charging, and advanced facial recognition enhanced by 3D imaging technology.

There is still a full five months before the expected big announcement from Apple. That means only pre-orders for the new 5.8-inch iPhone 8 would be available for later deliveries. Apple will be setting a competitive price range, so a $1,000 smartphone appears to be more improbable, the report details.

"For the 5.8-inch OLED version, the biggest bottleneck remains integrating an under-glass fingerprint sensor into the display - the current yield rate of Apple's in-house AuthenTec solution remains low and AAPL seems unwilling to use other vendors' products."-Timothy Arcuri, analyst, Cowen & Co".

Apple-related news chains are filled with rumours on the premium iPhone 8 model costing in excess of $1000.

However, the claim was refuted later by analyst Steven Milunovich from UBS who stated that only the 256GB storage variant of iPhone 8 may cost around $950 or $1000. However, the release date of the anticipated iPhone 8 might be delayed due to 3D sensing technology issues. This would make iPhone 8 look very similar to the iPhone 4s. Well, these are all rumours, until we get to see the final launch of the most awaited iPhone 8. Apple has reportedly pushed back the iPhone 8 release, after apparently confronting delays with the new smartphone. According to MacRumours, Apple is already making users familiar with the concept by introducing a reengineered home button in iPhone 7 which offers haptic feedback.
