The new schematics come from an unknown source in China, and they seemingly show the internal parts layout for Apple's upcoming new iPhone 8.
If the delay is indeed true, it will indicate that Apple has likely decided on one of two iterations of the OLED iPhone. The Home button will become virtual instead of physical to make room for the extra screen space, and the Touch ID sensor will be embedded in the display glass.
By the looks of it, the iPhone 8 is expected to bag several design changes.
Last week, supposed iPhone 8 specs leaked and showed a design that would be an absolute travesty. We already knew the iPhone 8 will face delays, as multiple reports detailed some of Apple's component-related problems.
"In other words, severe supply shortages may persist for a while after the new models are launched, capping total shipments of new iPhones in 2H17", he continues. It is believed that there are issues with the 3D sensing tech which is set to debut on the new device. "In that case, potential contribution starting late-2Q17 from OLED iPhone could be partially delayed by 3-6 months for related suppliers", Kuo's report further reads. The pictures of the supposedly CNC dummy models of the iPhone 8 chassis are recently posted on Twitter by a user named Benjamin Geskin. Sales may not be high for the iPhone 8 for 2017, but it should pick up once 2018 rolls in as supply normalizes and demand increases for the smartphone. The delayed iPhone would also be the OLED model, one of three devices that'd be presented at the Apple Event, the others coming with LCD displays not unlike what comes with the iPhone 7.
