All signs seem to suggest Apple might be about to break tradition and make you wait unusually long for the next-generation iPhone.
Esteemed Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo from KGI Securities has predicted the Cupertino heavyweight could begin mass production for the upcoming OLED iPhone with a slight delay, 9to5Mac reports.
The analyst claims production will likely be pushed back to October/November as opposed to the standard August/September timeframe. However, he still expects the iterative 7S models to land on time.
Kuo cites supply chain difficulties with several new components – including custom OLED panels, new 3D Touch modules and 3D sensing cameras – as the main cause for the delay.
oh man, i know it’s still super early to be making these kinds of forecasts, and you never really know with Apple — even though this wouldn’t surprise me in the least — but i’m already pretty eager since i’m up for a new iphone this year and really just looking forward to these new iPHone 8’s to land.
PS. dig’n the concept pic above by the way.
