Apple is expected to release their gen-next iPhone, the iPhone 8 later this year. According to Kou this Monday, Apple will not be able to launch the iPhone 8 until October or November 2017. Kuo claims the more conservative new models, likely dubbed iPhone 7S and 7S Plus, would not be delayed.

Rumors have been circulating for some time that due to a lack of agility in production and no ramp-up so far, iPhone 8 could experience extended extreme shortage of supply and even delayed launch. He also claims that the stainless steel sides of the iPhone 8 will be a polished Space Black instead of silver, similar to the Apple Watch. We've heard rumblings that Apple is having trouble readying its new in-display fingerprint scanner for mass production, and one option the company is supposedly toying with is relocating the Touch ID sensor to the back of the phone.

But the delay may not affect the new lower-end edition that is expected to be launched with the iPhone 8.

If this truly turns out to be the iPhone 8, Apple would, in a way, be going back to its roots. Apple is also rumored to be adding wireless charging and a front-facing camera with Kinect-like abilities to track motion in 3D.

Apple plans to use faster chips using a "10-nanometer process" that improves efficiency over the "16-nanometer process" Apple now uses for its processors.

It is interesting to note that there is also no Touch ID fingerprint sensor present on the back, which implies that the fingerprint biometric scanner might come integrated into/underneath the display.

According to a report by Digital Trends, KGI and other Apple watchers say that the Cupertino giant will most likely, not put the iPhone 8 up for sale at the same time as the upcoming iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus models.

The LCD-furnishing handsets are expected to be devalued by high-end users once the edge-to-edge designs take over the market, and this should only boost iPhone 8 demands.

Practically speaking, a 4 mm bezel all around the iPhone 8 would make it more durable if and when it is dropped.

It was supposed to be seen in action in the Samsung Galaxy S8 first, but the company did not have enough time to ideal it in time for the flagship's release.

From the photos, it looks as though the new iPhone could have squared corners, unlike the newer phones' rounded edges, and might measure slightly larger than the iPhone 7.
