Here's another reason it may be impossible to buy an iPhone 8

Are Technical Indicators Looking Better For Apple Inc. (AAPL), Coherent, Inc. (COHR)

The iPhone 8, according to reports, will feature a display that will take up nearly the entire front of the device with OLED panels. A new report circulating online indicates that pre-orders of iPhone 8 is likely to start from Sept 15 onwards. This is why he believes that Apple "may abandon" Touch ID completely for the iPhone 8, but he didn't say definitively that Apple would do so.

Of course, it's also possible this is all a ruse, but as LetsGoDigital points out, KPN is a major telecommunication company in The Netherlands.

Apple iPhone 8 may pack the OLED display.

Apple has confirmed that it will announce its new line of products on 12th September during its annual keynote event, which will be held for the first time at the Steve Jobs Theater.

Do you have your heart set on the iPhone 8 - or whatever it will be called when Apple unveils its new phone lineup on Tuesday? In 2013, for example, Apple did not accept pre-orders for the iPhone 5s due to supply constraints, and in 2015, pre-orders took place early on a Saturday morning.

Apple is expected to show off the incremental upgrades iPhone 7s and 7s Plus with the same screen size and general design as sidekicks to the 10 anniversary iPhone 8 with a edge-to-edge OLED display.

Taking this comparison into account, the iPhone 8 price does not seem too high. Some recent reports have also indicated that the iPhone in question would feature gestures to control some actions along with a bar beneath the floating dock that would enable users to unlock the phone and initiate multitasking as well. At the same time, Apple chose to ditch the physical home button that contains fingerprint sensors for unlocking the device.

Previous rumours have pointed towards the iPhone 8, or iPhone X as it may be known, going on sale on 22nd September. Kuo also estimates that an OLED unit for an iPhone 8 would cost between $120 and $130, while an LCD unit for the 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus would only cost $45 to $55. Designing the iPhone is already quite impressive, but being able to ship so many iPhones is even more impressive. Having a second supplier would provide Apple with steady supply of OLED panels.
