KGI's Ming-Chi Kuo Says iPhone 8 Comes As Late as November

The iPhone 8, aka 10th anniversary iPhone, comes later than expected.

On the heels of the leak of an iPhone 8 dummy from Foxconn, comes word of an analyst about the release time frame of the iPhone 8. The iPhone 8 is according to KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo coming in October or November, which is way later than previous iPhone releases.

The late release of the iPhone 8 might be caused by the fingerprint reader integrated into the screen. Kuo says according to 9to5Mac that there are other parts too that cutting-edge and difficult to produce.

This part takes longer to be finished. Apple could even miss 2017 all together, which would be a disaster. The iPhone 8 is supposed to celebrate 10 years of iPhone, Apple's key to its success. It would be embarissing to miss the anniversary. Kuo says that the delay will lead to missed sales for Apple.

The iPhone 8 is supposed to be released in late 2017. It could be the most expensive iPhone ever. The internal technology is expected to be similar to the new iPhone 7S, which is likely available earlier in September. iPhone 8 specifications include A11 CPU, 5.8" OLED display, 3D sensing front camera, wireless charging, IP86 waterproof and more.
