A further report from China's Economic Daily News (H/T DigiTimes) claims that the redesigned Apple handset - which is also being tipped to introduce an OLED display - won't actually be released until November or December due to delays.

We've been hearing various reports since the start of the year that the typical production schedule for the iPhone lineup is not happening this year, and these claims have only been boosted in recent weeks. Adding to the pile is a collection of iPhone renders that are based on leaked CAD files for the final design of the iPhone 8. The Apple iPhone launch is expected to be bigger than ever, and if the leaks are accurate, the launch of three new models on the iPhone's 10th anniversary will get industry excited.

The images point towards the iPhone 8 coming with an 5.8-inch OLED display with a "notch" or cutout at the top for the sensors and front facing camera similar to the implementation found on Andy Rubin's delayed Essential-PH1 smartphone.

Apple will be releasing the iPhone 8 later this year, probably alongside the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. Ltd. now owns 9,457,769 shares of the iPhone maker's stock worth $1,096,072,000 after buying an additional 8,571,027 shares during the period. The company is also expected to reveal the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus.

The issues surrounding the facial recognition system of the iPhone 8 is a particularly concerning one for Apple, as the technology is being developed to eventually replace the Touch ID feature.

One of the most popular iPhone 8 rumors has been about the loss of the home button and how Apple would incorporate secure unlocking on their new device. All of the smartphone's hardware components are in place, but the company's engineers and designers suffered software issues in getting certain features to work, specifically wireless charging and 3D face scanning.

Little has been reported regarding the resolution, but we'd bet on Apple sticking with the Retina display pixel density of around 300-400ppi.

Other changes are also made to the rear-camera setup which would be placed vertically, or we could say horizontally when the device would be rotated 90 degrees (landscape) to take a photo or do any AR focused activity.
