With the aforementioned potential risks that will affect iPhone 8 shipments this year, Kuo accustomed the shipping estimations for the handset.

This is something that has been one of the more consistent rumours about the new iPhone.
The technology is expected to replace OLED displays in the Apple Watch and may allow in-display fingerprint scanning when combined with infrared diodes, according to a recent patent filing. This does imply that the entirety of the front panel might be the display.
Some analysts also believe that if the company doesn't scrap its plan to embed the Touch ID into the phone's display, it may have to delay the iPhone 8's launch.
But that's not all that Geskin tipped people about.

The two new models accounted for 68 percent of USA iPhone sales this for the April 1 quarter.
Also, the technology on which it is based, the OLED screen of iPhone 8 will consume less energy due to the lack of backlight. If it is true, however, it indicates that the physical redesign of the iPhone 8 is what Apple is betting on, and not its processor performance. Last year, Apple broke its typical upgrade cycle by retaining the same iPhone shape for a third year in a row and endured a rare sales slide. It will be known for its complete renovation in the section of design and in hardware.
