KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has revealed in his latest investor note that Apple will be introducing the iPhone 7s, iPhone 7s Plus, and iPhone 8 smartphones at its keynote event in September. All the three new iPhone models will be available only in three color options – Black, Silver, and Gold. While Kuo had previously predicted that the iPhone 8 will be offered in a limited number of colors, the two other devices too coming in just three colors is a bit of a shocker. The current iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus come in Jet Black, Matte Black, Gold, Rose Gold, Silver, and the Limited Edition Red.
In his new investor note, Kuo also added that all three new 2017 iPhones will come with fast charging support. However, there is some bad news as well. The analyst claims consumers will not be able to enjoy faster charging right out of the box. An addition USB Type-C power adapter will need to purchase in order to enable the feature. The current iPad Pro too requires an additional MacBook 29W USB-C power adapter to enable fast charging.
The iPhone 8 model is expected to enter mass production by mid-September and will be released alongside the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus models worldwide. Initially, the iPhone 8 is expected to be in short supply, with the analyst predicting Apple will be able to ship roughly 2-4 million units in the third quarter. The supply situation isn’t expected to improve until the first quarter of 2018. Featuring a bezel-less front with an OLED display, the iPhone 8 is tipped to be the most expensive iPhone yet. The iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus will be more or less identical to the current iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus models in terms of design, except for a glass back.
