Apple is rumored to unveil a new iPhone later this year. The company usually launches the new iPhones in September, but it seems things might be a little late, if the new report is to be believed.
According to a new report, iPhone 8 launch is reportedly pushed back to November, or late-October at its earliest, as suppliers are having troubles with the mass production of the new components.
The mass quantity and high quality requirement is posing difficulties for manufacturers to churn out the required components in the given time frame. According to Sean Kao, an analyst at IDC: “There is a new design for a much smaller printed circuit board to allow a more powerful battery for this upcoming iPhone… but there are still some quality issue to overcome to achieve smooth mass production.”
Samsung is also facing issues with the product of the OLED panels which are rumored to be in the upcoming iPhone 8. Apple has reportedly ordered 70-90 million OLED panels orders for the Korean manufacturer with reports hinting that the panels will be delivered to Foxconn sometime in June/July, making it difficult to carry on with the desired launch date for the Cupertino company.
