'iPhone 8' Release Canceled This Year; Apple Will Release iPhone Edition Instead

And the rumored OLED "iPhone 8" will be about six months behind Samsung's redesigned Galaxy S8.

The 10th anniversary iPhone is rumored to come with a radical new design and a bunch of new features. Among those that plan to purchase the iPhone X, 26% indicate an interest in AR features compared to 16% among those that don't plan to purchase the iPhone X. This could be driven by the simple correlation between early adopters of iPhones and early adopters of new technology, like AR.

If Apple can ship the devices with a curved OLED display, that'd be nice, but this is unlikely to make or break the commercial success of the device.

The "iPhone Edition" will go on sale after the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are launched, according to reports.

Apple will release the new iPhone later this year because the tech giant confirmed that they still need time to test out their new materials.

Apple's iPhone 8 is one of the most eagerly awaited devices of the year 2017 and talks about its specs, features, design, release date and price have already begun in earnest.

Consumers really don't care: "I don't think the average consumer understands LCD Vs. OLED so I don't think it will hurt them", Ryan Reith, an analyst at IDC, told me this week in an email exchange.

Several other analysts, including DisplayMate's Raymond Soneira, have also said that Apple could be planning its 2.5D technology for the iPhone 8. Therefore, the iPhone Edition could follow in the footsteps of the Apple's Watch Edition, which costs around £820 or approximately $1000.

The last year's survey was conducted when the iPhone 7 was just two months away.

He even added,"Much like the recently announced LG G6, we anticipate a touchscreen with a new longer aspect ratio design to take advantage of the higher coverage area of the iPhone in its entirety".

On the other hand, the famous KGI Securities analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo also confirmed that Apple's next flagship will come with a 2.5D curved glass rather than a curved display.

What remains an open question, though, is how Apple intends to maintain/grow iPhone demand following the potentially upcoming "super cycle".

However, according to #iPhone81, the new flat OLED display actually appears to be more beneficial to the new iPhone.

The upcoming iPhone 8 is also reported to feature that is similar to the Touch Bar included on the latest MacBook Pro models.
