iPhone 8 could be released in September, but you may have a hard time finding one

If you're excited about Apple's upcoming iPhone 8, which reportedly features an OLED screen and an impressive screen to body ratio (never seen before on an Apple handset), you may want to know that the device could be hard to find at launch.

According to MacRumors, which cites information revealed by several Barclays analysts, the iPhone 8 will be both announced, and released in September - alongside regular iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus models (these should be direct successors to the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus). However, Barclays analysts have noted that the fancy iPhone 8 would likely not be widely available until the fourth quarter of the year, thus starting October. In other words, while the handset should be launched at the same time with the (presumably less exciting) iPhone 7s series, it will probably be sold out in no time.

The iPhone 8 is expected to have a 5.8-inch display, but, thanks to the almost non-existent bezels, it could be about as small as the current iPhone 7 model (which sports a 4.7-inch screen). You can take a look at what the iPhone 8 might look like here and here.

As a reminder, iPhone 8 might not be the final name of this device. Apple may want to go with iPhone Pro, iPhone X, or something else. We'll just have to wait and see what happens.

Of course. It's always been the best selling smartphone model. Just like anything else.... the Tesla Model 3 for example.

Honestly, I don;t think the 8 is coming anytime soon, those designs are made by a desperate fan.

Tesla is a fire catching piece of s... More like a concept rather than a real car.

The kids won't have one for him, they're just manufacturing them. How else do you think a Apple can make such thin phones? Tiny fingers making them.

What? I still have my ATT iPhone 4 and my Verizon iPhone 4S. Both unlocked. I had an iPad Air 2. But I sold it and mt Galaxy Note 12.2 on eBay and bought thr Surface Pro 4 with the cash. I only had to buy the type cover. I have a Verizon iPad Pro 9.7. But we all use it. I dont use it enough to justify owning 2 of them. My kid had an original Mini, but I gifted it and I let him use the nicer Pro which also has more space with the 128GB. I grew on Apple products. But Apple is not that same company. I just want them to do better with all teh money they have and they arent. I have said many times. If iPhone's had open file system, Mass Storage, and allowed me to transfer whatever files types I want from my device, I would never have bought a Galaxy smartphone. But I would have a Galaxy Tablet. I preferred the iPod Touch over the iPhone, because I dont want to have 2 phone accounts to pay for. But Apple chose to half-ass upgrade it. The iPod Touch for its cost should have thievery the iPhone had in the same year. But they gimped it to drive everyone to the iPhone instead. I use Android and Windows out of necessity. For the work I do, I need a product that does what I need it to do. I can deal with stupid limitations and pay a high price for it too. That's stupid. You cant get rich wasting money. Ask Apple. That is my issue. They make a lot of money and yet I benefit less from their products. So I've limited my ownership of them, But I've 4 iPod Touch, the 1st 3 iPad, the iPAd Air, have the Pro, and I've had Macbooks as well. But I not gonna waste money buying them like fans do. But yes I would love to have nice shiny edged iPhone with small bezels, hopefully a larger battery and some better tech. Not just an iPhone that copies Samsung because I already have one. Apple needs to do more than just match a Galaxy S6 edge. They need to be as good as the S7 edge at the very least. If its not, I dont care how shiny it is, I wont buy it. As nice as the S8+ looks, I dont want to buy it. I can wait for the Note 8. The only S I would ever use is the S6 edge o edge+. I've also mentioned I hated the Note 5, I didnt like the Note 4, but I liked it better than the Note 5. I preferred my Note 2 and 3 and I never owned the original. But this is the iPhone I wish Apple would make.http://cdn.androidorigin.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/07/Apple-iPhone-7-leak-300x172.png?x91860 And just use a QHD display. I would love that as much as I love my Note 7.

I find it impossible to believe that you own or use an iOS device. I might be wrong, but I feel this is just one of your typical lies that you post simply to bring more credibility to the other posts where you attack Apple. It's like when Mxy claims he is an Android user or Kumar claiming he owns an S7 Edge.

That proves nothing. And if that is you, what the hell is wrong with your fingernails? Looks like you're suffering from Lycanthropy.

Nothing wrong with my hands. I made my lrrof. Believe whatever you want. Doesn't matter either way. Like i told Kiko, you not believing doesnt make it not true doesn't make it true or false. Truth is truth no matter you belive it or not. I have nothing else to prove nor do i need too.

You're lying, that post was designed to diss the iPhone. You're owns about as many iOS devices, as Hitler owned Torahs.

As S8 launch looms closer, and it is highly likely that it will be the most exciting (if not bestselling) model for 2017 (like S7 Edge was 2016), the plethora for shameless Apple plugs in the form of non-news from fake or dubious resources based on nothing but speculation and wishful thinking is kicking into overdrive by PhoneArena. Hey, it it will be a good idea to plug iPhone 8 when you get some ACTUAL info about it. Meanwhile, try to look beyond Apple.
