The high-end iPhone 8 will delayed past September, analyst says

Indeed, a recent iPhone leak purporting to show the iPhone 8 design in full detail seems to corroborate this theory. He's now in Taiwan gathering information via a smartphone contact who's following Apple's supply chain data points.

Recent speculation has suggested the 3D sensing technology could be used for facial recognition as well as furthering Apple's growing ambitions in the augmented reality space. With the addition of the OLED panel and 3D sensor (and possibly a new line of features), the iPhone 8 is expected to cost within or more than $1,000.

With analysts predicting that the iPhone 8 will spearhead the largest iPhone refresh in history, Apple appears to be equally confident in the iPhone 8. Apparently, the company might still be facing some parts-related problems with the iPhone 8, hence the delay is being called for.

Aside from an upgraded chipset and the change in screen display resolution, the iPhone 8 may also feature wireless charging as well as no physical home button. Analyst expectation is that Apple will produce something outstanding in order to mark this occasion, and the number of units seemingly being anticipated and ordered by the manufacturer does suggest that this conclusion is valid. If White is correct, that means we're likely looking at a release date sometime in early October.

Added to that, Apple is believed to be taking more time than usual in the development of the device because of the incorporation of the 3D-enabled camera. For example, he was one of the first to reveal that Apple was working on the iPad mini back in 2012.

White, who is now in Taiwan to garner information from Apple's supply chain, cited a "smartphone contact" who is "diligently following the supply chain data points" around the tentatively named "iPhone 8" as the source of his information, so it's not a completely baseless prediction.

Apple Inc. has a one year low of $89.47 and a one year high of $144.50. "We continue to recommend owning AAPL". Adage Capital Partners GP L.L.C. now owns 7,697,852 shares of the iPhone maker's stock worth $870,242,000 after buying an additional 227,900 shares during the period. Needham & Company LLC restated a "top pick" rating and set a $150.00 target price on shares of Apple in a report on Tuesday, January 24th. Said to feature an advanced edge-to-edge design with a slightly curved OLED display, the iPhone 8 will mark the first major change to the iPhone form factor in almost three years. Hargreaves believes that the the consumer electronics behemoth could build 100 million iPhone 8 handsets in the second half of 2017 to meet huge demand.
