iPhone 8 release date rumors haven't settled on a particular date yet but those rumors should emerge in a few weeks as Apple's plans firm up.

The iPhone 8 may be hard to get at first, but Kuo says Apple will ramp up production in order to build 45 - 50 million iPhone 8 units this year, according to AppleInsider. According to Kuo's latest investor note, the iPhone 8 and the two iPhone 7S models will all come in only three colors- black, silver, and gold. The current iPad Pro uses the same setup.

The supply chain may manufacture between 2 million and 4 million units of the iPhone 8 this quarter. All three models are also expected to be limited to three color choices and all will support fast charging. However, this means one more dongle for Apple users as they will have to purchase a lighting to USB-C adapter for the same.

If it can't nail that fingerprint technology under the screen, it may have to turn to the back, the most commonly used place for a fingerprint scanner. For anyone anxious about Touch ID going away, Apple's facial recognition technology - acquired from an Israeli company called Realface - is said to be incredibly sophisticated, reliable, and even capable of distinguishing between sets of identical twins.

There is the now familiar cutout at the top for camera and infrared sensors, with no home button at the bottom. The iPhone 7s Plus will be 5.5-inches while the iPhone 7s will be the smallest at 4.7-inches. It will also have a totally new design. Apart from the dongle for fast-charging, iPhone buyers might also have to invest in a wireless charger as the accessory will not come pre-bundled in the box.

Last year, Apple received a lot of criticism from its fans for not making any new design changes and for sticking with the same pattern on iPhone 7. He further reveals that the handset by Apple will go on a verification test in August and the mass production of the device will kick start by mid-September. Still, Kuo's latest prediction is a rosier outlook than we've seen in the past, as some former rumors suggested Apple could potentially announce the iPhone 8 and then delay its launch until October or November.
