Apple’s upcoming iPhone 8 still has 8 months to go for its launch but the rumours and leaks just won’t stop pouring in. It is one of the most anticipated iPhones and will be the anniversary edition from Apple.
While through previous leaks and rumours we have a murkier picture of how the iPhone could look like, the pricing predictions hint that the phone could cost over $1,000.
Apple’s pricing strategy for iPhones launching in 2017 is predicted to be lower than previous versions and the rumoured high-end iPhone 8 with an OLED display is expected to cost upwards of $1,000. However, the base 64GB model could start at $850 to $900 in the US.
“This price point would be similar to Samsung’s new Galaxy S8+, which starts at $840 to $850,” macrumors.com quoted Steven Milunovich, Analyst, financial services firm UBS, as saying.
iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus will start at around $649 and $749, respectively.
In addition to an edge-to-edge OLED display with narrow bezels, the iPhone 8 is expected to come with wireless charging, no physical Home button, and potentially 3D facial recognition and/or iris scanning.
The upcoming phone are also rumoured to equip “True Color iPad Pro” screen technology for the first time.
The screen technology uses advanced four-channel ambient light sensors to automatically adapt the colour and intensity of the display to match the light in your environment. Which means reading anywhere is more natural and comfortable – almost like looking at a sheet of paper.
The full spectral sensing ambient light sensor will be added across the iPhone 7S, iPhone 7S Plus and iPhone 8.
