While The iPhone 8 is arguably the most anticipated new iPhone release we've seen in years, it appears that the iPhone 8 may also be the hardest iPhone to find once it actually launches.

Apple has already sent out its official invitation to the media on the upcoming launch event that will be held on september 12.

Samsung Display Co. controls a whopping 97 percent of the OLED panels for smartphones, industry sources said.

Apple's forthcoming iPhone 8 - including a premium model expected to cost around $1,000 - has encountered manufacturing problems that will delay the new smartphone's production pipeline by at least a month, the Wall Street Journal reported.

Though Apple's current stock price seems to bake in a successful iPhone cycle, here are three reasons Apple shares could rise further following the unveiling of the new phones. If the iPhone release is delayed into 2018 then Apple could lose out on holiday shoppers looking for a new phone. Reports have revealed that the supply chain start shipping the LCD panels from June so that the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus could become available in the market as soon as their unveiled.

Considering Apple going for the new powerful chipset, new body material, motherboard, RAM, storage, cameras and not to forget their R&D and advertising will easily increase the price.

There will be three iPhones announced September 12: two the size of the iPhone 7 and 7-plus and a larger iPhone 8. There are also some who claim that Apple will debut an in-display fingerprint reader that, in theory, would work just as well as a tactile reader.

On the other hand, the iPhone Edition aka "iPhone X" will be the show stopper of the event with its estimated price tag of $1000. Apple chose to forgo the fingerprint scan in favor of a password or facial recognition.

The iPhone 8 will lose a key security and biometric feature that Apple helped popularize. It introduced Gold with the iPhone 6 followed by Rose Gold, Matte Black and Jet Black.

According to KGI Securities' analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple was getting its displays for $45 to $55 per piece, now Samsung is nearly charging thripple the amount $125-$130. To put that in comparison, the displays featured on the iPhone 7 Plus range from about $45 to $55.
