It seems there will be some radical design changes in the iPhone 8, Apple's flagship phone for 2017.

Why are Wall Street analysts suggesting that the next iPhone could more than before? From what we've gathered thus far from the Apple rumor mill, the iPhone 8 will, without a doubt, be the most advanced iPhone ever released by a wide margin.

The significant hardware upgrades for the iPhone 8, including its custom OLED display, custom Apple A11 10-nanometer chipset, new 3D Touch module and 3D sensing cameras, are tagged as the primary causes of the mass production delay.

The analyst continued to predict that Apple will probably sell around 80 to 90 million units of the new upcoming iPhones in the second half of 2017.

Apple is expected to pull-out all the stops for its next generation phone, which looks likely to be unveiled in September.

These rumors raise the possibility that Apple could three iPhones in September, including the redesigned OLED iPhone 8 and two models that resemble updated versions of the current iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.
