If things go to plan Apple should launch their new iPhone 8 in September. A number of rumors have suggested that the handset may be delayed slightly and that it will not launch until October.
According to a recent report, the iPhone 8 has entered trial production. If this is correct, then it would mean that the handset is on track for a September launch.
The latest rumor comes from Benjamin Geskin, who also said that the handset could feature an under the screen fingerprint sensor like previously rumored.
Fingerprint identification was under-screen in testing machine. Maybe they done it successfully.

Previous reports had suggested that we would have to wait until next year to see an iPhone with a fingerprint scanner under the display.Apple will do away with the home button on this years iPhone, some rumors suggest that the handset will not come with a fingerprint scanner.
Personally I think the new iPhone 8 will have a fingerprint scanner. Apple needs this for security on Apple Pay. Rumors have suggested facial recognition on the new iPhone, although I cannot see Apple completely changing the way Apple Pay works for the iPhone 8.
What we do know is that the handset will come with an OLED display, this will be Apple’s first OLED iPhone. The handset will also come with the new Apple A11 processor which will give improved graphics and performance over the current handsets.
The new iPhone 8 will feature an L shaped battery, this will give the handset improved battery life over the current iPhones. Apple will also launch two other new handsets. The iPhone 7S and 7S Plus, these handsets will come with an LCD display.
We are expecting the new iPhone 8 to go on sale some time in September and rumors have suggested that Apple could announce the handset at an event on the 6th of September.
