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

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."
