Recently, Japanese site Mac Otakara reported that the OLED version of the iPhone will come up with a serious delay compare to the LCD versions. Now this information also appears in the new report from KGI Securities, and the world’s leading analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo.

Kuo argues that Apple will still present the premium model at the same time as the other two devices in September, but supplies will be slowing down over time. According to him, production will end in October-November, not August-September, as usual.

Kuo says the iPhone 8 features “significant hardware upgrades” that will be the main reason for the production delays, including the custom OLED display, the A11 10nm chip, the new 3D Touch module and the 3D sensing cameras. The analyst says that Apple has custom-ordered several “major cutting-edge components,” which might explain the manufacturing delays.

Rumors of delay are also drawn by Bloomgerb, Barclays analysts and a number of journalists. The analyst believes that the slowdown will “won’t undermine actual demand,” but much of the supply will be delayed until the first quarter of next year when most consumers will be able to buy it freely.

The worst forecast, triggered by delays, was Apple to sell 80-90 million iPhone to the current forecast of 100-110 million devices. The industry expects sales of OLED vs. LCD to be 60:40.
