OLED iPhone 8 production may be pushed a couple of months back due to supply issues

KGI dropped the bomb regarding iPhone 8 when their renowned analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo suggested that the OLED-featuring iPhone 8 models will be released a couple of months later than expected, due to supply shortages. iPhone 8 (also commonly known as iPhone X or the OLED iPhone) will be packing state-of-the-art technology.

Unfortunately for Apple, implementing this technology requires hardware which face shortage of supplies. KGI has projected a large figure of sales for iPhone 8, but more significantly, analysts believe that a large proportion of sales of iPhones of 2017, will be of iPhone 8. Kuo believes that the company will face extreme shortages which will push the OLED iPhone’s release date to at least October or November.

OLED is not only the hardware of concern for the iPhone 8, Apple’s new A10 SoC, sensors for 3D touch, and 3D sensing cameras, all are complex hardware which are unable to be produced at a scale high enough to compensate for Apple’s requirements.

KGI believes that a limited supply of OLED iPhones will be shipped this year. The iterative models, iPhone 7S and iPhone 7S Plus on the other hand, will surely have no such supply issue and will be launched as per the usual schedule.

These two models are projected to be less desirable as they have new hardware, but in the same frame.
