The internet is know filled with leaks and rumors about iPhone 8,
the upcoming Apple big gun that will feature a total redesign,
becoming the first redesign in years and celebrating iPhone 10th anniversary,
but what many didn’t consider is how hard would it be to actually get an iPhone 8, and here’s why:
The Sales Report
Apple released it’s quarter sales numbers for the first time since iPhone 7 release,
inidicating that the iPhone 7 had record breaking sales,
or as Apple CEO Tim Cook described it: “We Sold more iPhones than ever before”.
and if these numbers indicate anything it will be that iPhone will have a historic demand,
making it harder to have than iPhone 7 Black.
The Supplier Rumors
Apple intends to release an iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and an iPhone 8 premium model later this year,
These Phones will feature and OLED glass screen from edge to edge,
The problem is that the OLED suppliers of Apple might nt be able to keep up with demand so the OLEDs will only be in the top iPhone 8 model. This could mean it’s not only popular but also in short supply.
Apple is also expected to build bezel-less curved OLED displays for its iPhone 8.
The rumour is in line with Sharp top executive remarks that Apple has to finally choose OLED displays to take the next step in innovating displays on its smartphones.
Samsung and LG, joined by Foxconn-owned Sharp by 2018, are said to be Apple’s primary OLED suppliers.
It’s almost sure that Apple will launch a 5.8-inch iPhone with a curved OLED display and glass casing next year, the research note mentioned.
There are reports that a bezel-free design by Apple will be achieved by removing the iconic Home button on the next iPhone.
Despite fears that Apple would suffer yet another quarter of falling sales, as people wait for the new 10th Anniversary iPhone rather than buy now, the iPhone 7 has sold well. The suffering sales was thought to be the result of competition from more affordable Chinese handset manufacturers.
