As the release date gets closer for the upcoming iPhone 8, more talk about the price is starting to surface. Many believe the base cost will start at $1,000 and up.
As many already know the rumors and talks regarding the iPhone 8 are growing steady and one conversation that continues to grow has to do with the price of the latest upcoming iPhone. Before talking cost, let’s look at the components that are supposedly involved that could drive up the cost.
The specifications that are rumored for the iPhone 8 are: an edge-to-edge display, this new design should display an all-glass construction with OLED, a bigger screen, and a size a bit larger than the iPhone 7 Plus, measuring at 5.8 inches. It’s said to come with 128GB of storage as well as a 256GB model which of course will help explain the bump in the extra cost, 3D sensing, better and faster NAND/DRAM memory, and an A11 processor. Rumor has it that one of the new design features will be no home button, rear-facing Touch ID sensor, iOS 11 with advanced Siri functionality, face-scanning technology, and vertical dual cameras on the rear.
It seems some of these added or enhanced features mentioned could contribute to the cost of the iPhone 8 starting off in the thousands. Stay tuned for more updates on rumors and talks as more information becomes available on the iPhone 8.
