OLED iPhone Suffers Delay
Apple’s next iPhone will reportedly not be ready in time for the company’s typical September launch window.
According to a report from the Chinese news outlet Economic Daily News (via DigiTimes), the new OLED screen of the upcoming iPhone was the cause of the delay, which could see the it launched in October or as late as November.
“Technical issues related to the lamination process of curved OLED panels, and the adoption of a 3D sensing system may cause the delay of the new iPhone devices,” Digitimes reported.
While an OLED iPhone has yet to be confirmed by Apple, a report yesterday suggested the company had ordered 70 million OLED panels from Samsung Display.
The new handset is also rumored to have a curved display and 3D camera.
Apple has launched yearly iterations of the iPhone in September since the release of the iPhone 5 in 2012.
