iPhone 8 leaks: From 3D facial recognition camera to production delays, here's what you should know

iPhone 8 is back in news and the word is that Apple might delay the launch of iPhone 8 due to issues in housing OLED display panel with 3D sensors. Check out the details here

iPhone 8 has become the centre of attraction these days. The details about the purported features of the upcoming iPhone 8 (wait was it iPhone X or iPhone Edition?) keep pouring in. However, these reports and leaks have become so contradictory that it’s hard to believe what’s true and what may turn out to be a baseless rumour when Apple finally unveils the phone.

The latest set rumours come from KGI Securities expert Ming-Chi Kuo, who has an excellent track record in predicting Apple information about Apple products.

According to Kuo, Apple is facing major production issues in incorporating OLED display panel with 3D sensors in iPhone 8. This might force the company to opt for a delayed launch. Reports suggest that the Cupertino-based company might opt for an October-November launch instead of sticking to its age-old tradition and going for a September launch. Furthermore, Kuo suggests that Apple might drop the shipment from 100-110 million units to 80-90 units.

Another report suggests that Apple is reportedly working with the Korean electronics giant LG for manufacturing the camera module for the 3D facial recognition system for iPhone 8.  The Korean giant would also be setting up a new facility to manufacture the device.

But that’s just a part of the story as the word is that production of the processor that will be housed inside Apple’s iPhone 8– most likely A11 chipset— has already begun. Despite the delay in production of the phone, word is that production of some components of iPhone 8 is proceeding on time.

It’s important to note that at this point, all these are rumours and we won’t know anything for sure till apple unveils the final product.
