Apple's next-gen iPhone 8 launch date could be pushed back

Samsung is the sole supplier of OLED to Apple, and this year it will provide Apple with the panels. This obviously isn't the first time Apple and Samsung have done business together, though this is the first time the two companies have cooperated since Apple dropped Samsung as one of the manufacturers of A-series iOS SoCs. Indeed, a sizable portion of the display will be dedicated to what he refers to as an "area for functions (e.g., allocation of virtual buttons)", leaving just 5.2 inches of active display area. The OLED displays could end up bumping up the phone's price past $1,000 (roughly £800 or AU$1,300), and they might cause a production delay, according to this report. However, I can't help thinking there's one obvious omission from Apple's upcoming product lineup. This model is in the development phase.

This year marks the iPhone's decade-long dominance of the mobile phone industry.

So far all we're seeing are mockups of what people think the new model could look like.

Everyone is expecting Apple Inc. If Apple does decide to make iPhone 8 its most powerful gadget, how much will it cost?

A report from March revealed that the Cupertino firm would not start mass production of the so-called iPhone 8 (artist impression) until September. The glass will again playing a leading role in the front and rear, while the diagonal of the new smartphone will move at the same levels that we are accustomed the company in recent years.

The iPhone 8 might be the most anticipated smartphone launch of 2017, perhaps garnering more speculation and rumour than even Samsung's Galaxy S8.

The iPhone 8 is expected to use Samsung's curved OLED panels to eliminate the bezels.

Another day, another iPhone 8 rumor.

When investing geniuses David and Tom Gardner have a stock tip, it can pay to listen. "Apple's 256 GB OLED model could be US$950 (AU$1,260) to US$1,000 (AU$1,330), but the 256 GB [iPhone] 7 Plus already is US$970 (AU$1,290)". The Motley Fool owns shares of and recommends Apple.
