IPhone 8 mass production will kick off in mid-September

Posted August 10, 2017

iPhone 8 release date rumors haven't settled on a particular date yet but those rumors should emerge in a few weeks as Apple's plans firm up.

Blass has a strong track record with Apple leaks, meaning this is likely the closest we've seen yet of Apple's planned handset.

As you may be aware of by now, this year marks the tenth anniversary of the Apple iPhone, the smartphone that revolutionized the field.

Apple started a massive trend, but now it might be about to deem it dead. This may eventually ramp up to 45 or 50 million units in 2017, but there will probably be an acute shortage till Q1 of 2018.

According to reports, the new image shows an iPhone surrounded by a protective cover with a spirit-level-like green element on its side. On the front, we can clearly see the OLED display with its cut outs on top for the ear piece and front-facing camera.

Housing prices have been rising briskly in some markets, although there are some signs that these conditions are starting to ease. Headline inflation rates have declined recently, largely reflecting the earlier decline in oil prices .

Many suspect that the reason Samsung's Galaxy S8 and S8+ have moved the fingerprint sensor to the back is because the under-screen technology wasn't ready yet.

This new leak comes from Techtastic.com. On the rear, we see the attractive glass back that is host to the dual camera array that is now horizontally oriented. However, things are expected to be having clarity with time.

iPhone 8 has been widely rumoured for a delayed launch in October, but KGI securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has confirmed that Apple's upcoming flagship phone will be launched along with the iPhone 7s and the iPhone 7s Plus. Keefe, Bruyette & Woods set a $170.00 target price on Apple and gave the stock a "buy" rating in a report on Monday, May 22nd. This could mean availability delays for the iPhone 8 in worldwide markets. In his note published on August 8, 2017, and spotted by MacRumors, the analyst expects a presentation of the future iPhone 7s, 7s More and iPhone 8 as of September 2017.

In addition to the OLED iPhones, the new iPhones will also include a 4.7-inch LCD model and a 5.5-inch LCD model, Kuo said in the research note, adding that the three versions will be available in three colors - black, silver and gold. While some reports also claim that the supply chain will produce between 2 million to 4 million units of the phone only this quarter.
