Is the leak authentic?

Since it is a screenshot, it cannot be confirmed as authentic, and it is best to take the rumor with a grain of salt. One has to wait for the official GeekBench link to come to any conclusion. The rumored smartphone is expected to be released in September 2017.

Rumors suggest that there may be delays concerning the supply of the next-generation iPhone 8.

The delay could be because of possible supply constraints and the inclusion of the fingerprint scanner, which Apple is allegedly trying to embed into the screen.

The iPhone 8 is expected to release alongside the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus. The premium smartphone will reportedly cost upwards of $1000 as per analysts. However, some experts assert that the inclusion of features such as an iris scanner may justify the higher price point.
