New York Times journalists got new information about the upcoming iPhone 8. According to anonymous sources, Apple will keep the price under $1,000. Thus, prices will start at $999. According to the same source, the new iPhone will feature an ultra-thin OLED screen, facial recognition and wireless charging system.
As you can imagine, $999 is the starting price for the basic model that will feature 64GB of internal memory, write 9to5Mac. Thus, you can expect a higher price for the 256 GB or 512 GB versions. Considering the previous releases, each internal storage upgrade should cost extra $100. This is not yet confirmed though.
All three iPhone 8 versions will feature 3GB of RAM and Apple A11 chipset. The internal memory chipsset will be produced by Sandisk and Toshiba (for 64GB and 256GB versions) and Samsung and Hynix (512GB version). According to the new information, iPhone 8 will be released on September 12 at an official event and sales will start on September 22.
At the September 12 event, Apple will also feature iPhone 7s and 7s Plus, a new smartwatch and a new Apple TV 4K. The event will take place at Apple’s new headquarters, Steve Job Theater, also known as the Spaceship Headquarters, due to its futuristic shape.
Until then, unofficial photos continue to appear with parts of the new phone, published by analyst Benjamin Geskin. Some of them show the 5.8-inch OLED screen with very thin edges.
