iPhone 8 price – pricey. Why is that?
For the couple of last year’s, we have not seen any major changes in iPhone’s design on the outside. And it is only understandable that this year we will see pretty big changes on the new iPhone 8 design. It’s because this year iPhone 8 reveal date will be special. It will be the 10th anniversary of Apples iPhone and people need to see something spectacular. But not only because of that but also because of competition. And when I say competition I mean Samsung Galaxy S8 and Note 8 that recently has been presented to us and already is available for pre-order that will star to ship out on September 15. Note 8 has a magnificent, big, close to no-bezel screen and iPhone has to keep up. This probably is the main reason for such pocket robbing iPhone 8 price this year.
iPhone’s three new devices
Next Tuesday, September 12 will be the iPhone 8 official uveil date. Unveil But we are not expecting just one high end device to be revealed to us. We expect three. First, the one we are talking the most iPhone 8 or iPhone X or iPhone Pro, the concrete title of it is still not known. This model is the one which is expected to ditch the home button in order to make the screen bigger. This smartphone is expected to get the best of the best – new OLED screen. And iPhone 8 price is expected to start at $ 999. Which is a quite bigger price than for last year’s iPhone 7 Plus which had a starting price of $769.
iPhone 7S and iPhone 7S Plus
The second and third smartphones we expect to see are iPhone 7S and iPhone 7S Plus. These devices are expected to have new, faster working processors. But in the design of iPhone 7S and iPhone 7S Plus don’t expect any changes. Most likely they will have the same design as the previous iPhone series – iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S.
iPhone’s split on flagship line up
At the beginning when Apple started their smartphone business they started it by released only one smartphone. But now they have started to split their flagship line up. Apple started to split its flagship line up in 2014 with the debut of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Which was mainly just bigger screen and few other not major differences. But last year with iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus they have added one more spectacular difference – dual-lens camera which is found only in iPhone 7 Plus (the bigger model).
iPhone 8 totally new design
And now the differences between these models are starting to grow even bigger. Why these changes are so essential for Apple? Well, the statistics show that for the last couple of years iPhone users are not upgrading their phones as often as they used to. To be fare we have not seen very dramatic changes in the new models. And since more than two thirds of Apple’s sales comes from iPhone sales it is understandable that there is an urge to change something about that. And now that the hottest and most modern phone there is right now is Samsung Galaxy Note 8 which no longer has the home button and has amazing new cutting-edge design. You can just tell that this is the best phone out there just by looking at it. And Apple has to keep up with that.
