9 iPhone with a screen diagonal of 6.1 inches can be sold no earlier than October. Reported by Katy Huberty, financial analyst of a large Bank holding company Morgan Stanley, citing sources in the supply chain. According to her, the delay may be caused by problems in the production of a new system of illumination of the display, which Apple intends to apply the available models.
“Currently, we do not observe any delays in the production of 5.8 – and 6.5-inch flagship Apple says, Huberty in a memo to investors. — Nevertheless, the disruptions that we see [in production] led backlight for an LCD display, 6.1-inch iPhone may become the main reason for his six-week delay before the appearance in the sale”.
When will the iPhone 9
Huberti, not the first one who made a opinion about late start of sales 6.1-inch iPhone. Earlier it was suggested that Apple may intentionally postpone the appearance of the future flagship in retail for fear of creating internal competition between the models, two of which are in danger of fading into the background of the available and practically indistinguishable externally “cheap” iPhone 9.
Perhaps the only who are confident that the release of the new iPhone will take place on schedule, is TF International Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. In his opinion, all three products will debut in September and will go on sale a few days after the official presentation. The cost of the models, the analyst believes, will start from $ 650 for a Junior LCD version, reaching $ 1,200 per senior.
