This matches an iPhone 8 dummy model leak from earlier this week, though in the photo (below) the left model looks closer to copper than gold. Regarding this issue, the KGI Analyst stated the following: "The OLED version will be in short supply as we forecast shipments in 3Q17 will be 2-4 million units or less". Needless to say, everyone is expecting the iPhone that comes out this year to be fantastic in order to properly celebrate this important milestone.
The iPhone 8 may be hard to get at first, but Kuo says Apple will ramp up production in order to build 45 - 50 million iPhone 8 units this year, according to AppleInsider. But Kuo's report claims the iPhone 7s, iPhone 7s Plus, and iPhone 8 will all be released simultaneously next month.
The display glass will have a graphite layer beneath the surface to protect the smartphone from overheating. Apart from wireless charging, the smartphones will also support fast charging. The facial recognition technology will be able to work if the phone is lying flat on a table and using infrared sensors would still be able to identify users in low-light or dark environments. The Korean company is said to be the sole OLED display supplier for Apple.
It is also being speculated that the company will launch about 35 to 38 million iPhone 7s units and 18 to 20 million iPhone 7s Plus units.
According to reports, the new image shows an iPhone surrounded by a protective cover with a spirit-level-like green element on its side.
The new live image shows both front and rear panel details of the iPhone 8. The internal storage variants are likely to begin at 64GB this year. He did point out that buyers will also need to pick up an accessory Type-C power adapter for the faster charging. The phone is expected to enter product verification later this month and enter mass production in September. The pricing of the smaller iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus is unknown though the two are expected to be priced marginally higher than this year's devices. Still, Kuo's latest prediction is a rosier outlook than we've seen in the past, as some former rumors suggested Apple could potentially announce the iPhone 8 and then delay its launch until October or November.
