If Apple is feeling particularly nostalgic, it may opt for June 29 – the same day the first iPhone was released.
Meanwhile, Ming-Chi Kuo has previously claimed the iPhone 8 could be delayed until October or November, due to “significant hardware upgrades”.
Apparently, Apple is struggling to integrate its Touch ID sensor into new iPhone’s the display.
So while the iPhone 8 could be unveiled in September, it may not go on sale immediately, according to Kuo.
However Carphone Warehouse have already opened their pre-registration, so if you are looking to pick up the new iPhone as soon as it’s released, you can sign up for free here.
Apple products are not exactly known for being cheap. When the company launched its ‘budget’ iPhone 5c in 2013, it still cost an eye-watering £469.
But the latest reports suggest that Apple’s next device will be its most expensive yet, exceeding the $1,000 (£795) mark for the first time.
The price was reportedly leaked to The Fast Company by “a source with knowledge of Apple’s plans”.
The source said that Apple will be launching three devices this year – a massive 5.8-inch model (likely called the iPhone 8), a 5.5-inch model (called iPhone 7s Plus), and a 4.7-inch model (called iPhone 7s).
The iPhone 8 will reportedly have a new OLED display that will stretch across the whole front of the phone.
This is part of the reason for the high price tag, according to the source, as the OLED display will cost Apple roughly twice as much as the LCD display used in current iPhones.
The new phone is also likely to get a memory upgrade from the current iPhone 7 line, which will add to the cost of manufacturing the device.
Apple is allegedly planning a major design overhaul for the iPhone 8. The company is said to be working on an all-glass version of its iconic iPhone , for release in 2017.
KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo published a report in May claiming the American tech firm will completely redesign the iPhone in 2017.
Instead of the aluminium casing used in the iPhone 7 , Apple will move to an all-glass enclosure.
