The iPhone is a popular household product, but Apple’s next flagship product will smartphone is expected to take this a notch higher. Much hype has already been built around Apple’s iPhone 8 (iPhone X) set to be launched later this year.
The devise is expected to be a complete redesign of the current iPhone series and will likely create the largest excitement in Apple since the first iPhone in 2007. That will be a great reward for the ever-loyal fans that have in recent years raised concerns regarding the iPhone design.
With each passing week, more hype builds up concerning the next generation Apple smartphone. As the anticipation grows more and more, reports have emerged that Apple may not have to wait until November to release the iPhone 8. There are reports suggesting that the launch may happen as soon as early October.
Why the early launch?
Rumors supporting the early launch speculation support it with the argument that Apple has not been able to effectively integrate the OLED display. Additionally, suppliers contracted to provide the iPhone 8 most advanced components may not have done so in time for the September launch.
But not everybody is in agreement with this claim and maintains that the rumor may have been blown out of proportion. That could be probably because Apple and its partners have finally taken control of the surrounding problems revolving around production. Whichever the case, any person waiting for the iPhone 8 may not have to hold still till November.
Morgan Stanley conducted a research and found that iPhone 8 is likely to hit the shelves at the normal time frame. This means the smartphone has high chances of being launched in mid-late September. More importantly, Morgan Stanley states that it could not find any evidence suggesting existence of production problems.
Here’s what a section of the report says regarding rumors on production difficulties:
“Morgan Stanley’s Greater China Technology Research colleagues have not yet seen delays in the supply chain and still expect new iPhone production to start on time for most of the components (including OLED).”
This conclusion by Morgan Stanley concurs with OnLeaks’ prediction that Apple will begin mass production this summer as it gears for a September launch.
There is the possibility of Apple being unable to launch iPhone 8 as a result of supply constraints. Whereas this will undoubtedly frustrate many, it is a common occurrence every time Apple launches a completely new design.
The iPhone 8 is billed to integrate excellently new features include a body redesign, advanced camera modules and support augmented reality and facial recognition.
