At earliest, it’s still four months away to the debut of the iPhone 8 but excitement is running high with rumours rife on its anticipated features and pricing.
- New renders based on leaked blueprints touted as the “most accurate look yet”
- On track for September/October release
It has been speculated for months that Apple’s upcoming premium smartphone, the iPhone 8 will start at a whopping US$1,000. Anything lower than that would be a relief. As long as its price hits four figures, iPhone 8 would be the most expensive in Apple’s line-up.
So what are the alleged features for such premium pricing?
- 5.8-inch Oled screen
- 3D sensing technology
- Faster NAND/DRAM memory
- Edge-to-edge display
- A11 processor
- Biometric authentication
- No home button
A recently released video of new renders based on leaked blueprints has been touted as the “most accurate look yet” of the iPhone 8.
iPhone 8 is expected to have 128 GB and 256 GB models, anticipated to retail for US$999 and US$1,099, respectively.
Though there has been speculation that Apple will be facing delays in the production of the iPhone 8 due to its premium components, it is believed that it is on track to be launched in September or October, the traditional release season of new iPhone models. This time around, it is likely to debut alongside the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus, reportedly priced at US$649 and US$769, respectively.
