Apple iPhone 8 to be offered in "Blush Gold"?

Render of the Bush Gold Apple iPhone 8

You might recall that earlier this month, we showed you three iPhone 8 dummy models in "shiny black", "pearl" and in a copper-esque hue. Today, a social-media post appeared on China's Weibo revealing that the name of the copper unit will be "Blush Gold." Additionally, the report added that Blush Gold will be available only with 64GB and 128GB of native memory on board. 

Twitter tipster Benjamin Geskin disseminated a tweet yesterday that showed a render of the copper colored iPhone 8. Geskin wrote that the Blush Gold name is used internally at Foxconn to denote this particular shade for the phone. KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who is considered to be among the most reliable of Apple analysts, says to expect the iPhone 8 to be offered in the copper gold, white and black hues that we have recently seen. Kuo also expects only 2 million to 4 million units of the iPhone 8 to be available at launch.

According to reports, the Blush Gold color option will replace Rose Gold in the 2017 Apple iPhone lineup. That lineup is still expected to be introduced sometime next month with the Apple iPhone 7s, Apple iPhone 7s Plus and the tenth anniversary iPhone 8 model. The latter could be priced in a range of $1,000 to $1,200 which elicited something of an understatement last week from a Foxconn VP. The anonymous executive said that the "estimated iPhone 8 is not cheap."

LolS! When was the last time an iphone was cheap at launch? And even an old iphone is so expensive.

I was looking at iPhone SE's on craigslist and ebay, and noted that the used SE's are more expensive than a new SE from Cricket. They are like SIG Sauer's... more expensive once broken-in.

I know right?
I was trying to look at a 5S to use in the car, because it's the last model, before they switched to lightning.

And most still want $240-$300. I was like BS. It's not worth more than $150 tops. It's 10 models old. These sellers must high.

Yeah, so about a month or two ago, Cricket was offering the iPhone SE 16GB model for $169.99 - still a bit of a stretch for me, but close enough to daydream about a little. Now all they have is the 64GB model, and it comes in at a heftier $229.99, but I figured I could go to craigslist or ebay and find one used for a lot less, right? Not a chance! The best price I could find was an SE with 16GB, used but without the original box and accessories, for $250. Everything else was either more expensive (some were asking as much as $550) or broken (still cost $200 even with the shattered screen) or without any charger or anything (probably stolen for all I know). My jaw dropped and just hit the floor...

Liar, I believe they switched to lightning with iPhone 5 in 2012. You would need iPhone 4s or older.

I wonder why more red phones aren't dropping. That's one of the dopest colors out. The red U11 looks nice.

I'm gonna make sure my Note 8 has a red case. Red with the black front will look sweet.

I would like to see black highlighted with bleeding red.
Or yellow on black...contrasts.

I can’t wait for the new iPhone to come out. Fresh and new design is very welcome.

Looks kinda like rose gold. I wonder if they'll have this color, and rose gold.

I'd think that the 8 will have to come in product red since that is a thing now. I don't really see them not offering it. Maybe not at launch but I am sure it will come around.

Mee too... However I expect apple to put a black display panel on the front rather than the white one

Not much longer we will find out all the official info on this and the Note. 1000 bucks is a tough pill to swallow. Wish the subsides didn't go away. Not interested in making payments on a phone.

This color should be good enough to sway in lots of purchases. Brilliant.
