Consumers already have a lot of expectation with the iPhone 8 as Samsung took the competition to the next level with its latest Galaxy 8 release. However, latest reports have claimed that users might need to wait a bit longer as this year Apple might release the iPhone than its traditional September release period.
As the upcoming smartphone from Apple might shift to new design, it’s reportedly is proving too complicated to manufacture according to industry analysis. Cowen and Company analyst Timothy Arcuri has suggested the Cupertino-based firm is struggling with yield issues for certain iPhone 8 components especially with the updated Touch ID fingerprint scanner.
He noted that as the company is planning on moving the traditional home button of iPhone, it can be difficult to do so as he said, “For the 5.8-inch OLED version, the biggest bottleneck remains integrating an under-glass fingerprint sensor into the display.“
“The current yield rate of Apple’s in-house AuthenTec solution remains low and AAPL seems unwilling to use other vendors’ products.”
The upcoming iPhone is rumored to introduce a new A11 processor with 3GB of RAM. While it’s widely expected that the company will announce the device during its event where the company is set to announce updates related to iPhone 7S and iPhone 7S Plus. However, Arcuri noted that the company might be forced to delay the release of the flagship device. Whatever happens, the upcoming smartphone is clearly one of the most anticipated smartphones in recent years and it’ll be worthwhile to see how Apple takes the competition to the next level.
