IPhone 8 hype may not live up to the steep price

For assembly plants, July is the usual yearly mass production time for new models of smart phones; however, now the yields of the two main iPhone manufacturers, Foxconn and Pegatron, are still not up to standard.

We have been keeping count of the number of combined rumors and leaked photos showing Apple's unreleased and unannounced iPhone 8 model, which is now more than four million. That's about 1-2 months later than normal. A CAD render has been obtained through supply chain which gives an insight of the Apple's upcoming smartphone's design.

Such reports often don't pan out, but there has been more buzz than usual this year about delays of the new flagship iPhone, whose OLED display has reportedly been costly and hard to produce.

RF PCBs are an integral component that connects chips to various iPhone parts like the camera, touch screen panel, and display.

Samsung also beat Apple to the punch with the minimal bezel look expected with the iPhone 8, but the big question will be whether AAPL is able to place a Touch ID sensor beneath that display. "To fill the loss, Apple is supporting the other two suppliers, both Korean, to beef up production", the source continued. It will be long and house a 5.8-inch display with a "cutout at the top for the front facing camera and sensors", said the report. Should we expect a delay of three weeks, a little over a month or could the iPhone X (8) be pushed back all the way to next year?

Although a year ago was a break with tradition, Apple usually announces how many iPhones it has sold during the handsets opening weekend. Does Apple rip it out at the last minute to rely on face scanning only? The leaked render illustrates an elongated design with a 5.8-inch display and a bezel less display screen.
