Apple Inc., the world’s favourite mobile brand is developing the super hyped and highly awaited iPhone 8 currently. The aforesaid phone is said to have some highly surprising features and better than ever specifications compared to its previous ventures. The most radical change that Apple is apparently planning to incorporate in its latest phones will be a full-screen OLED panel.

However, there is one big problem for the tech giant’s R&D team. According to the reports we received from our sources, Apple is facing issues with its hardware development section. The problem lies with the idea that Apple wishes to put a full-screen OLED panel across the device. An OLED panel would mean a brighter and a better display for its users. However, the idea of an OLED panel is causing troubles to the team.

The problem that the company is facing lies with the fact that they wish to make their phone go near bezel-less and that would mean removing the home button completely and embed it beneath the display. Apple has already ditched the physical home button in iPhone 7Plus, and now with the latest advancements,  we are almost certain Apple wants the home button to be integrated into the touch panel.

The culprit, however, is not the home button, but the fingerprint scanner that Apple Inc. wants to integrate beneath the OLED touch panel. They apparently aren’t r able to deploy an optical fingerprint scanner beneath the OLED display, one that would be read a fingerprint through the panel. The feature is highly critical for many applications, such as unlocking the phone, applications, making payments etc. These issues might cause the company to employ the fingerprint scanner on the back panel.

Having placed all of its past fingerprint sensors with the home button, Apple is trying its level best to get it done at the same place as always. This issue is causing the finalisation of the devices to be delayed and may force Apple to delay the launch its latest phones; as is evident from the fact that Apple hasn’t issued a bulk production order for any iPhone 8 devices yet.

Unless Apple addresses the issue and finds a solution to the problem fast, they might be compelled to make their fans and loyal customers wait for longer than expected to get their hands on the latest iPhone yet. This might cause Apple to lose out a part of its sales to competitors like Samsung Galaxy S8 and Xperia XZ Premium. Also, the market is already buzzed with news about the Nokia 9 coming soon, probably before iPhone 8. We are expecting Apple iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus to come to markets around September this year, under ideal conditions.
