Several unverified reports suggested that the iPhone 8 might not launch until October or November, which is later than Apple’s usual September launch time frame. But according to AppleInsider, rumors about the iPhone 8 being delayed are without foundation, and Apple’s latest smartphone will launch alongside the 7s and 7s Plus in mid-September.

AppleInsider, one of the Internet’s premier sources of information for all things Apple, cited KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo as saying that all three iPhone editions would support rapid charging and that the iPhone 8 would come in three colors – black, silver, and gold. The iPhone 8 will also be in limited supply compared to the iPhone 7s models, with only 2 million and 4 million units expected to be produced this quarter.

While both the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus are already in mass production, Kuo said that the iPhone 8 is not yet in production. It reportedly will enter the product verification test phase later this month, before mass production begins in mid-September.

If other rumors prove to be true, the iPhone 8 will have several new features, including:

The last point probably shouldn’t be considered a feature, but given the advanced technology and limited availability the iPhone 8 is rumored to have, Apple could charge a starting price of more than $1,000 for it.

This information was shared by Kuo in a research note which was obtained by AppleInsider.
