Samsung's OLED shipment for iPhone to start in June as planned

Samsung's OLED shipment for iPhone to start in June as planned

According to rumors, this fall will bring not just one.not two.but three new iPhones, including the mysterious iPhone 8 (if that's even its real name).

If legit (which let's be honest, it probably isn't), expect Apple's upcoming iPhone 8 to sport a Galaxy S8-esque edge-to-edge display, with the dummy unit showing no discernible bezels.

Apple's iPhone 8 has been all over the Internet nowadays.

Buffalo Bills have Monday deadline for Mike Gillislee signing
The Bills will likely look to add running back depth with a rookie after losing Gillislee, but Buffalo can wait. The Patriots will now send a fifth round pick to the Bills, giving the team seven picks in this week's draft.

IMAGES OF AN ALLEGED iPhone 8 dummy unit have appeared online, complete with an edge-to-edge display and 2.5D glass design. The iPhone 8 is expected to be a milestone in the iPhone release history as it will be released on the 10th anniversary of the iPhone. Reputable Apple analyst KGI Ming-Chi Kuo has also weighed in today, reporting that mass production of the OLED iPhone will likely be pushed back to October/November, instead of the normal August/September timeframe for new iPhone launches. That said, if new features, such as 3D sensing, can provide good user experience, a temporary supply shortfall won't undermine actual demand, which may be deferred to 1H18. The third model is most likely to be the iPhone 8 which could feature a stainless steel chassis covered by curved glass on the front and back. According to Kou this Monday, Apple will not be able to launch the iPhone 8 until October or November 2017.

The latest of such mockups includes a physical model that incorporates a number of popular design upgrades which are tipped to land on the Cupertino giant's next flagship iPhone model, popularly referred as the iPhone X or the iPhone 8.

The media's latest report reveals that Samsung's display division will place orders for key panel components by the end of this month. Early April had sources close to Apple's suppliers saying this year's special iPhone will be held back by two months. Another risk comes from competitors Samsung, Huawei, OPPO, Vivo and Xiaomi, which are getting ready to release "high-end full-screen smartphones" this year, which could impact sales of the iPhone 7S and 7S Plus because those iPhones "do not have full-screen form factors", Kuo said.
