IPhone 8 Price Leak Hints At Mammoth Leap From Last Year

What's Apple CEO Tim Cook doing in Cincinnati?

Speculations are that the iPhone 8 could be the most expensive smartphone ever launched by Apple.

A study released by the ad company Fluent found that just 13 percent of American consumers said they would buy the new iPhone if it costs more than $1,000.

In patent application 20170242499 titled "Noise Correction for a Stylus Touch Device", Apple notes that their patent figure 1 shows a touch screen such as a 'smartphone or tablet.' The patent later specifically clarifies that the smartphone and tablet are indeed an iPhone and iPad.

Reports of new Apple products continue, as the company is purportedly planning to launch an Apple TV Model that supports 4K HDR streaming, as well as live television content. This would be an unprecedented price for a mainstream flagship smartphone: the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, revealed earlier this week, turned heads with its $930 price point.

Apple is set to announce three new iPhone models - a premium model named iPhone 8 and two upgraded iPhone 7 models - iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus. The announcement may take place on 12 September 2017. Pacific Global Investment Management CO now owns 72,866 shares of the iPhone maker's stock valued at $8,439,000 after buying an additional 415 shares in the last quarter.

The writer backs up reports of new features on the iPhone 8, such as a Face ID facial recognition and wireless charging with magnetic induction.

Several other equities research analysts have also recently commented on the company.

Foxconn employees also confirmed the iPhone 8 will somewhere between the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus in terms of size, although the new design will shave off some inches by removing the top and bottom bezels, and will feature a larger screen than the iPhone 7 Plus as a result. There could also be a bigger play here from Apple. The accompanying photos users could see the silhouette of a gadget in the Trouser pocket Tim cook and suspected that this is the long-awaited iPhone 8.

Whenever the iPhone 8 releases though, make sure you have $1,000 on-hand if you want to be the first to have one. The feature will require the purchase of a compatible wireless charging accessory, and Apple might not have them ready in September.
