"Importantly, we do not believe that Apple's production schedule is still changing materially with most current delay reports simply dated reverberations of decisions Apple made back in the spring", JPMorgan's Rod Hall said in a note to investors.

Samsung won't be making Qualcomm's next flagship chip which is the Snapdragon 845. Earlier, Apple awarded exclusive production right of SoC to the Samsung's major rival Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC).

But it seems Samsung still has to convince Apple for the same.

Kwon Oh-hyun, one of Samsung's three top executives who leads chips department at the firm reportedly visited the Apple headquarters in California in June.

The reports say Samsung would share some parts of the iPhone orders next year that have been monopolized by TSMC.

The Korea Herald wrote, "According to news reports on July 18, Samsung recently purchased extreme ultra violet lithography machines, the most advanced chip manufacturing equipment, to produce seven-nanometer mobile processors exclusively for iPhone". Going by the analytics, Samsung dominates OLED manufacturing with 95 percent of market share to its.

While iPhone 2018 rumours have not yet started, all eyes are on the iPhone 8 that is expected to launch in September-October 2017. It seems Apple will ditch the Touch ID as it is unable to embed the fingerprint scanner under the display.

I don't have any knowledge of how Apple plans to price its upcoming iPhone lineup, but I find this proposed pricing structure highly unlikely.

Analyst Steve Milunovich, by way of AppleInsider, said in a recent note that he expects Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) to price its hotly anticipated OLED iPhone at $900 for the variant with 64 gigabytes of storage, with a 256 gigabyte variant selling for $1,000.
