The iPhone 8 launch, hampered by unfinished designs and technical difficulties, won't happen till November, according to one report, but others question the reliability of such claims.

"The iPhone's rear design has not yet been finalized," a South Korean supplier of components for the new device said, according to The Korea Herald. "We are still awaiting Apple's final decision before shipping parts."

Apple Insider said The Korea Herald has a pro-Samsung bias and has been unreliable in predicting Apple products and release dates.

Features predicted to be included in the new OLED "iPhone 8" — sometimes referred to as "iPhone X" or "iPhone Pro," — have included fingerprint scanning, facial recognition, and a 5.15 inch edge-to-edge screen.

The phone may be able to mute notifications when you are looking at it, The Verge reported, citing a leaked HomePod code mined by developer Guilherme Rambo.

Sources told DigiTimes that "all of the three new iPhone models, including two TFT LCD and one OLED model, have entered volume production," adding that supply may fall short of the high demand expected for the product.

KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo forecasts that the company will ship 2 million to 4 million or fewer iPhone 8s in the third quarter, with tight supply possibility continuing till next year, MacRumors reported.

Analysts have predicted the iPhone 8 could push Apple to become the first company to reach a market cap of $1 trillion, Economic Times reported.

New products expected to launch in September include the iPhone 7s, 7s Plus and iPhone 8, with price points reaching between $900 and $1,100.

Some Twitter users are awaiting the new iPhone with anticipation while others are not impressed.
