Earlier it was reported that Apple iPhone 8 may be delayed until December, due to issues related to embedding the fingerprint scanner onto the display of the smartphone. But now Analysts at JPMorgan predicts that device will be launched on time by the end of the September but initially the device would be available in limited quantities.
JPMorgan’s Rod Hall claimed that they expect a small amount of late September EMS output for the Pro model and then ramping production through October. Target output levels would be achieved by late October or early November. According to the Hall, Apple’s production schedule is still changing materially with most current delay reports simply dated reverberations of decisions Apple made back in the spring.
The company expects that upcoming iPhone 8 would cost more due to a higher production cost, as the smartphone will be equipped with premium features like OLED screen, wireless charging and face recognition, etc. Analysts of the company also expects the average selling price of the iPhone 8 will be $1,100 which $100 more than its predecessor.
