KGI says Apple’s next-gen OLED iPhone will launch in September after all, shares rise

“If you want to get the upcoming iPhone 8, you’ll probably need to buy it the second it goes on sale,” Todd Haselton reports for CNBC.

“According to KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who has been following the iPhone 8 in the supply chain all year, the phone will be unveiled and will launch at the same time as Apple’s other two expected iPhones, the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus,” Haselton reports. “Kuo warns that the device, which he once said was delayed, will be in extremely tight supply, with only about 2 million to 4 million units available.”

Haselton reports, “The iPhone 8 may be hard to get at first, but Kuo says Apple will ramp up production in order to build 45 million to 50 million iPhone 8 units this year.”

Ming-Chi Kuo: All next-gen iPhones to come in only three colors, launch simultaneously in September – August 8, 2017


  1. But I thought everyone had already decided that Apple’s iPhone could possibly be ‘delayed’ until after Christmas based on credible anonymous sources data. /s

    I really wish there was some way those damn lying charlatans could be exposed for their deliberate tampering of Apple stock prices. These crooks should be brought to justice for confusing naive investors who might believe their dirty lies and fabrications. Who knows if Kuo is even close with his rumors this time around. Don’t listen to any of these BS artists who think they know everything about what Apple is doing.

    1. Here’s a pertinent question for you all: in the tech infosphere, what is the proportion of true statements? With respect to verifiable information, I assert it’s close to 100%, and with respect to speculation, it’s close to 50%. In other words, you can trust information about existing products, otherwise it’s a crapshoot.

      That’s why the stock market is ruled by “sentiment.” It’s a belief system more than a science.
