The problem was worse in the original production forecast, according to the new report, when it was originally a rumored six-week delay for the 6.1
We currently do not see any delays in the ramp to Apple's forthcoming flagship 5.8 "or 6.5" OLED iPhones. However, suspected problems with LED backlighting have caused a 1 month delay in mass production of 6.1-inch LCD iPhone, although this is down from a 6-week delay backed in the original production forecast, according to suppliers.
The six weeks Delay for the LCD model was previously mentioned in a report earlier this year that predicted that the LCD model would not start until November 2018, but otherwise, the belief has been that Apple will release all three devices in September 2018.
Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has supported this idea, and in a june report he explained what he believes will be Apple's smartphone pricing: the 6.1-inch LCD iPhone will be priced at $ 600 to $ 700, the 5th , 8-inch OLED 2nd generation iPhone X will be $ 800 to $ 900, and the 6.5-inch OLED device will be $ 900 to $ 1000.
If the 6.1-inch model does not make a debut in September, Apple will probably lose some sales to customers interested in a new iPhone model, but still do not want to pay up to $ 800 in full for OLED devices. Because of this, Huberty Apple sees to deliver a "weaker consensus in the September quarter".
This is a similar feeling that iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus achieved when Apple split its launch last year, although it was somewhat reversed when the flagship iPhone X was the late device in 2017.
