It is highly likely that Apple’s upcoming iPhone 8 will have a delayed release because of the supply shortage.
It seems like Apple’s much anticipated iPhone 8’s release will be postponed. The reason behind this is said to be due to the supply shortage that the company is currently facing. The release of the 10th year anniversary iPhone is originally scheduled to be released in September.
However, due to the recent turn of events, it might be pushed back to a later date. Reports suggest that it might be postponed by one or two months depending on the status of the supply levels.
It has also been reported that the iPhone 8 could take the name of iPhone x. The possibility of it getting totally redesigned is also not ruled out. As of now, there is still no official information as to how Apple’s upcoming latest flagship phone will look like.
However, reports are strongly suggesting that it may have an all glass body as well as an edge to edge display. The most surprising of all possible features is that it may have no home button.
Specs to Expect
It has also been speculated that the iPhone 8 will have its own OLED curved screen. This will completely cover the entirety of the front part of the phone.
It is also highly likely that the home button will be embedded in the screen, which is similar to how the Galaxy S8 is redesigned. There are also reports coming in that a fingerprint sensor lodged in the screen may also be true.
However, among all of the speculated features, the fingerprint sensor is the most difficult one to achieve. Currently, it has still been widely debated whether the iPhone 8 will have a stainless steel, glass or aluminum body.
The iPhone 8 could also feature an augmented reality support. This will make interaction with the physical and virtual world much more grand and wondrous.
Meanwhile, the other speculated features are wireless charging and a new USB-C port. Reports also have it that the iPhone 8 may be running on a 10-nanometer chip.
If this proves to be true, then the overall processing capability of the phone would be more efficient. This will also give it more battery life, compared to the 16-nanometer chips that are on the iPhone 7.
Whichever the case is, there is no doubt that the iPhone 8 will be a successful smartphone. Let’s just hope that there will be no similar issues with Samsun’s Galaxy Note smartphones.
