Rumor: The iPhone 8 Could Be Announced September 12

New reports have popped up claiming that Apple will ship the iPhone 8 in 64GB, 256GB and 515GB models and we could see them as soon as September 12.

Weibo released new information on Wednesday stating that the iPhone 8 will have 3GB of RAM, and ship in three storage options. The 64GB and 256GB storage models will be supplied by Toshiba and SanDisk, whereas the 515GB model will be supplied by Samsung and SK Hynix. As a comparison, Apple’s iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus come in 32GB, 128GB, and 256GB storage options.

Another report by Mac4Ever says that it confirmed with telecom companies that Apple should host its annual press event on Tuesday, September 12. MacRumors also agrees that Apple will hold its event in early September in order to boost iPhone sales since the company’s financial quarter ends Saturday, September 30.

The second week of September includes Mac4Ever’s predicted date of September 12, and Wednesday, September 13 could also potentially be a possibility for the event. Either of these dates suggest an iPhone debut on Friday, September 22. 

Of course, it’s best to take these reports with a grain of salt, since Apple has yet to confirm an event date or the storage options the iPhone 8 will sport.
