The report also says that Apple would not start the pre-orders of iPhone 8 for six more weeks to prevent the cannibalization of iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus sales.

Ming-Chi Kuo, a well-known analyst with KGI Securities claims that the Cupertino company will not be able to meet the demand of the iPhone X before the first half of next year. That means long shipping wait times are a high likelihood for any number of the device's limited confirmations when preorders do go live next month.

The iPhone X, as the rumours suggested, was the main event with its brand new design, OLED display, Face ID instead of TouchID, and fancy new styling which sees the front the handset dominated by an expansive Super Retina OLED panel. While many of its fans are waiting eagerly for the redesigned iPhone X to hit the shelves in the country, analyst predicts that supply constraints should be expected.

If you think you can casually wander into an Apple store and come out with an iPhone X like you would have done with previous versions, you're in for a surprise. It has the same A11 CPU as Apple's iPhone X, which has already been shown to be stupidly powerful, it has wireless charging, a brilliant camera, and, because it still runs 1080p panels, likely a very impressive battery life.

Even though there might be numerous reasons to reveal iPhone X later on, but the prime reason is that it might affect the sale of iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. "We revise down our forecast for 2017F iPhone X shipments from 45-50 million to around 40 million units, but we therefore revise up our 2018 iPhone X shipment estimate to 80-90 million units", Kuo told Macrumours.

The iPhone X certainly is living up to its expectations in terms of being a state of the art smartphone, but such hindrances will affect the positive vibe around Apple. This is why the company has preferred to make it available later on for pre-order.

The iPhone 8 models launch date, second phase release, in India, is on September 29.

The iPhone 8 is priced at Rs 64,000 for the 64GB variant, while the 256GB model costs Rs 77,000.
