iPhone 8 Will Be In Super Short Supply And You Should Be Prepared For Its Astronomical Price
A recent report by DigiTimes suggests that Apple’s iPhone 8 will be in short supply once the final product is out in the market. According to their sources, the short supply is occurring because of the OLED screen technology that is being implemented in the upcoming smartphone. OLED manufacturers are suffering from a low yield that is affecting the supply chain of the iPhone 8.
Samsung has been supplying OLED panels to Apple but only promises to accommodate the promised quantity between 3 million and 4 million units. Apple had hoped to ship at least 70 million iPhone 8 handsets this year but due to this latest development it looks highly unlikely
There have been rumours surrounding the iPhone 8 but many of them have to do with the device’s availability. Many reports suggest that Apple will face some delays simply because there are facing difficulty in accessing enough panels for manufacturing. Some reports are suggesting that the iPhone 8 will be launching on its regular September cadence whereas other reports suggest that the delay might cause the smartphone to launch in October or even November.
Apple has not commented on their plans and they won’t be ready to unveil the handset any time soon. Even though the rumour mill has released numerous details on the upcoming handset such as the OLED display and a touch ID fingerprint sensor that is embedded into the display. Apple is also expected to use a glass body in the device, similar to the iPhone 4s and if you are lucky enough to get your hands on an iPhone 8, it may just cost over $1000. Hotdamn!
