Apple iPhone 8 to Cost 'Around $999' [Report]

The Apple iPhone 8 will cost 'around $999' when it launches next month, according to a new report from the New York Times.

Chief among the changes for the new iPhones: refreshed versions, including a premium model priced at around $999, according to people briefed on the product, who asked to remain anonymous because they were not authorized to speak publicly. Apple made room for a bigger screen on that model by reducing the size of the bezel — or the forehead and the chin — on the face of the device. Other new features include facial recognition for unlocking the device, along with the ability to charge it with magnetic induction, the people said.

The iPhone 8 will be Apple's tenth anniversary smartphone. It's believed to feature an edge-to-edge 5.8-inch OLED display with a notch in the bezel at the top for the earpiece and front facing camera. It will use a virtual Home button in place of the traditional physical Home button at the bottom of the device. The device will purportedly incorporate a revolutionary 3D sensor that is years ahead of the competition to enable facial recognition and augmented reality features. It's also said to feature a glass back to facilitate inductive wireless charging. The latest reports claim Apple was not successful in embedding Touch ID under the display and so the iPhone 8 will only feature Face ID (Pearl ID) for biometric security.

Apple is expected to offer the iPhone 8 in black, silver, and gold (copper?) colors and 64GB, 256GB, and 512GB storage capacities, all with 3G of RAM. Carrier sources say Apple will unveil its new iPhones on September 12th and release them on September 22nd.

I'd be surprised if it will be that cheap, I was sure it would be at least $ 1,400 for the GB 256 and $ 1,500 for the GB 512 because if it will only be $ 1,000 then everyone will add $ $100 and not buy the 7S and Apple are making millions of 7S's for Christmas so $ 1,000 don't make sense to me but hopefully it's true. Look at the iPad Pro also went from $1,000 up to $1,500 between the Top iPad Air 128 GB LTE to the top iPad Pro 512 GB LTE with a keyboard and an Apple Pen.

$1000 is cheap don't get why people are complaining. I can buy one a day and still have change left over for hookers.

First it's old news, many months back they already said its gonna be around 1000$. On the other hand You All know that you will be in the line for that, it has never been about the hardware, its the iOS thats sells. Non competitive with android, same as if i was saying that windows is as good as macOS.. So yes i hate paying this amount but at least iPhone works.

Waiting for the 7s plus. No business with any 8

Disappointed there isn't a terabyte of storage. Porting data forward should open up new room for data while allowing you to carry forward your old photos / videos etc, especially without an SD slot. They missed on that one.

So they want me to pay more for a phone with less storage and the same mediocre camera? My 7 will do just fine for now.

I don’t think you read the article properly it says bigger storage options and big improvements in camera

I read it again, nothing about a better camera.

When it refers to the 3-D sensor it is talking about the camera sensors
