Flagship iPhone 8 model tipped to cost over $1,000

Apple’s flagship iPhone models have always been more expensive than flagship smartphones from the Android camp. This year however, the flagship iPhone model could be priced higher than any previous iPhone, if a new leak is to be believed.

According to the Fast Company report, the “iPhone X” 10th anniversary model is going to be priced above the $1,000 mark, which would make it the most expensive iPhone ever. Even the current iPhone 7 Plus 256GB variant is priced below the $1,000 mark.

The main highlight of the “iPhone X” model is said to be an OLED display that will cover most of the device’s front. While the exact size is yet to be confirmed, the report expects it to be around 5.8-inches. Another major highlight could be 3D-sensing technology from Lumentum. How exactly the tech will be used on the iPhone X is not yet know though. The iPhone X will apparently be an upgrade over the current iPhone 7 line in the memory department as well, although isn’t clear if that means it will have higher RAM or if Apple is planning to introduce a new 512GB storage version.

For those of you not keen on splurging $1,000 on a smartphone, Apple will also launch the successors to the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, which are likely to be a lot more affordable than the iPhone X.
