Initially, there were many reports suggesting the iPhone 8 launch would get delayed due to some manufacturing issue. Proving all the speculations wrong, last week Apple sent out invites for the launch event that is to take place on September 12.
As usual, the name of the product was not mentioned in the official invite. However, judging from the company's past launching pattern, we are quite sure the iPhone 8 will get launched at the event. Now, with just 4 days left until the launch date, a report by The Investors has revealed a shocking piece of information. According to the publication, the specs line up of the iPhone 8 is not finalized yet.
The website claims to have obtained the information from an anonymous representative from Apple's local supplier. The supplier says that the shipments of the 2017 iPhones started only from late August.
He further added that its firms are yet to get exact details on the supply volume. This is because the Cupertino-giant has not made its mind about the specifications on the iPhone 8.
Well, there is no way to verify the authenticity of this report.
Whatever the case is, even if the iPhone 8 gets announced next week, it is not likely to go on sale until November. Another unnamed source claims that initially, the 10th-anniversary model will be made available in limited quantity.
If you recall, renowned analyst Ming-Chi Kuo from KGI Securities had said the same thing earlier. According to him, there will be only around 2 to 4 million iPhone 8 available immediately after the launch.
