The upcoming iPhone 7S and iPhone 7S Plus smartphones are expected to launch in the coming month with LCD screens. The highly anticipated iPhone 8 is rumored to come with an OLED screen. Early rumors had suggested that the iPhone 8 would be debuting alongside the iPhone 7S and 7S Plus smartphones and it will go on sale in October. Fresh information suggests that the arrival of the iPhone 8 has been delayed and it will be hitting the markets by November.

Rumors have already revealed that the Cupertino company is finding it difficult to embed the fingerprint scanner under the display of the OLED screen. However, fresh information suggests that the final design of the rear side of the iPhone 8 has not been finalized yet. This indicates that the iPhone 8 may come with a rear-mounted fingerprint reader.

The decision of removing the on-screen fingerprint scanner on the iPhone 8 has also affected the schedule of OLED supplier. Samsung Display, the only provider for OLED panels for the upcoming iPhone were scheduled to beginning the production by the first of this year. However, Samsung began the OLED production in small capacity in the previous month. This indicates that the iPhone 8’s arrival has been delayed.
