The latest rumors come from renowned analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities, whose latest report states all three models will launch next month, but the iPhone 8 will be available only in limited quantities. On the memory front, the flagship iPhone 8 will come with 3GB of RAM while the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus are expected to ship with 2GB of RAM each. Also, a report from Business Insider quotes a research by Deutsche Bank which claims that the phone will not be available until 2018 due to supply chain issues and technical challenges. It is expected that Apple will introduce a total of three phones next month, the two iPhone 7s models, plus the phone that is mostly being referred to as the iPhone 8 (though some are calling it the iPhone Pro). The color variants had leaked previously and show the Gold variant in a much brighter shade than the present one. Now, this is back at the forefront, with new images releasing, showing the 2017 iPhone's glass back design, with some added information pointing towards wireless charging.
The display glass will have a graphite layer beneath the surface to protect the smartphone from overheating. The facial recognition technology will be able to work if the phone is lying flat on a table and using infrared sensors would still be able to identify users in low-light or dark environments.

It is also being speculated that the company will launch about 35 to 38 million iPhone 7s units and 18 to 20 million iPhone 7s Plus units. Kuo believes that the iPhone 8 will be the only model to ship with a vertical dual camera setup on the rear. In his note published on August 8, 2017, and spotted by MacRumors, the analyst expects a presentation of the future iPhone 7s, 7s More and iPhone 8 as of September 2017. Further, the images have been said to be likely of an early stage version of iPhone 8 as the codename "FERRARI" can also be seen in the leaked images.
The latest Kuo report comes after another one which indicated the Touch ID under the display is not happening on the iPhone 8.
