We’ve seen many rumors stating that Apple could release the highly anticipated iPhone 8 months after the iPhone 7s and 7s plus. However, a new report claims that consumers might not have to wait that long.
According to a DigiTimes report, all three iPhones models have entered volume production, meaning the iPhone 8 is likely to ship alongside the two LCD iPhones. Even though this new report hints that the iPhone 8 is going to launch on time, Apple could face supply constraints if the manufacturing yields for OLED panels continue to be low. The report notes that there won’t be a shortage of the two LCD models but the supply for the iPhone could fall short due to high demand.
All of the three new iPhone models, including two TFT LCD and one OLED model, have entered volume production, said the sources, adding that there will not be shortages for the two LCD models, but the supply of the OLED version could fall short of demand due to high expectations for the model.
The iPhone 8 will sport an all new design, an edge-to-edge OLED display, wireless charging, 3D facial recognition, and more. If you’re interested in reading the full report, you can head over to the DigiTimes’ website.
