Which ever one Apple plumps for, it's likely to hold up release, says Arcuri. But there's a cloud looming over Cupertino and it's one that comes and goes depending on who's reporting. Arcuri predicts that the company will be able to sell 46 million units in the September quarter, slightly below previous Wall Street numbers ranging from 47 to 48 million.
Interestingly, the same report that suggested Galaxy Note 8 will not be getting an in-screen fingerprint sensor due to security issues also suggested that Apple has succeeded in the implementation of the feature on iPhone 8. If despite these challenges Apple can make a power-packed iPhone 8 available exactly a month later than usual, it shouldn't be disappointing. Samsung was also working on it but had to scrap it last minute to release the S8 on time.
The OLED screen with embedded Touch ID is "still being worked out", Cowen and Co. analyst Timothy Arcuri said in a memo obtained by Apple Insider. That company, as you may expect, be none other than Apple.
The bottom of the alleged iPhone 8 features dual drilled speakers and a single Lightning port - still no 3.5mm headphone port anywhere to be seen then. (NASDAQ:AAPL) would offer the iPhone 8 at more than $1,000. There are rumors of the iPhone 8 being called the Decade Edition, but that remains to be seen. The image looks like a fingerprint so we're assuming the phone will have an in-screen fingerprint sensor.
Apple iPhone 8 is rumoured to come with a 5.8-inch screen.
None of the three methods involve placing the iPhone 8 fingerprint scanner on the back panel.
Employees at Foxconn recently confirmed that the iPhone 8 would keep the Lightning connector rather than the reported USB C, as well as feature wireless charging.
