A Virgin Mobile memo, allegedly leaked, says Apple will release a (PRODUCT)RED iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus on Monday, April 9, 2018.
According to an internal memo distributed to Virgin Mobile employees and obtained by MacRumors, says, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus models in a limited edition (PRODUCT)RED color will be unveiled as early as today.
Virgin Mobile states that it will add the new smartphone models to its inventory system on Monday, coinciding with a launch announcement from Apple. In fact, this would likely be in the form of a press release. The memo, however, doesn’t mention a (PRODUCT)RED edition iPhone X, so there might not be one available.
Several reports have suggested that Apple is planning a new color format for its iPhone 8, and now it seems like the launch of that device is nearing. The memo also says that there will be a pre-order period for the red iPhone 8 and red iPhone 8 Plus. This could mean that the device won’t officially launch until later this month, though it could also simply mean Virgin Mobile won’t have inventory until later this month, while Apple will.
It’s also unclear if the new red color would be available immediately or begin shipping (PRODUCT)RED iPhone 8 models later in April, but it does appear that Apple will introduce the lineup this week.
Interestingly, there is purportedly no (PRODUCT)RED iPhone X mention in the Virgin Mobile memo. But the report last week spread suggested that Apple is planning a new gold iPhone X, and that’s not mentioned here at all either. That report indicated Apple was planning the new color to “restore sales” of its flagship models.
It’s likely that Apple will announce the new PRODUCT(RED) iPhone X via a press release. That is because, Apple used the press release to unveil a new iPad 6 model, as well as (RED) versions of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus last year. This year, we could theoretically see a press release for a (RED) iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, a new iPhone X color, and its AirPower charging mat.
We will be detailing availability of the (PRODUCT)RED edition iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus here at TechGiri.com, stay tuned for more!
