The next generation iPhone is among the most anticipated smartphones this year. Apple has long been rumored to launch three new iPhone models at its September event including a premium iPhone 8 and two standard 4.7 inch and 5.5 inch iPhone 7s models. Previous reports claimed that the OLED-equipped iPhone 8 will not launch in September due to supply chain issues.
Tech experts also say that the key components found in the premium iPhone 8 like long-range wireless charging, OLED display or iris scanner are forcing Apple to push back the launch date of the device. However, according to the latest reports, the upcoming iPhone 8 will still be available but in limited quantities this September.
According to tech analysts, the shipping estimates of the iPhone 8 will likely slip to a few weeks just after the pre-orders go online. Besides, the first iPhone with an OLED display could make a gigantic hit and become the hottest item during this year’s holiday shopping season, similar to the last year’s iPhone 7 Plus Jet Black.
Rumors say that the upcoming iPhone 8 will come with 5.8 inch OLED display with 5.15 inches of usable screen. Besides, Touch ID and camera are expected to be built directly into the display. This means that there will be no home button. However, iPhone 8’s highly-anticipated wireless charger will not come bundled in the box, meaning that you’ll need to spend some cash to buy it separately.
The premium iPhone 8 is rumored to cost up to $1000 at launch. In reality, surpassing the $1000 mark is not something unfamiliar when it comes Apple products. Apple is now selling the 256GB version of iPhone 7 Plus for $969, which gets close the price.
Aside from three new iPhone models, Apple is expected to launch three new iPad tablets this year. In reality, Apple released its new 9.7 inch iPad Pro a few days ago that replaces the current iPad Air 2. Tech experts say that the Cupertino Company will release its new 10.5 inch iPad Pro with bezel-free design in April.
