IPhone X: has Apple's new iPhone name finally been confirmed?

Samsung's current position as the only major OLED display panel supplier may explain why the iPhone 8 is rumored to cost around $1000, reports KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. As you've likely heard by now, the iPhone 8 is said to feature an edgeless OLED display with thin 4mm bezels surrounding the entirety of the device. Samsung is likely responsible for supplying each of the parts with the exception of the 3D Touch module. To put this in perspective, Apple is believed to pay $120 to $130 for each OLED panel it obtains from Samsung.

It's been speculated that Apple will be holding a product launch on 12 September, presumably for the new iPhone 8. That compares to the $45 to $55 it pays for the aforementioned LCD display. Kuo believes that OLED creates unfavorable scan-through performance for the fingerprint sensor.

In the video, the device appears very similar to how it has been described in many reports with the edge-to-edge screen and no physical home button. The iPhone 8 would be Apple's tenth anniversary smartphone.
