Remember last year’s red iPhone 7 — the first iPhone to launch as a Product (RED), a special edition line of products that help fund and promote (RED)’s efforts to fight HIV and AIDS?
Apple may be giving the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus a similar treatment, according to a new Virgin Mobile memo, obtained by MacRumors.
According to the memo, Virgin Mobile will be adding red variants of iPhone 8 and 8 Plus to its inventory on Monday, April 9, and a launch announcement from Apple (no event, just a press release) might happen on the same day. The devices will be available for pre-order, which indicates a later shipping date.
The iPhone X is not mentioned in the memo.
Another prominent leakmeister, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, said that the launch will likely happen “this week.”

There were also rumors of a gold/blush gold iPhone X launch around this time, but they aren’t confirmed by the memo as it only mentions the (RED) products.
