Apple will introduce a new dual camera setup with their iPhone 8.
If that's not quite opulent enough for you, you can add diamonds. The prices that have been speculated so far are: $999 for 64GB variant, $1099 for 256GB variant and 1199 for the 512GB variant of the iPhone 8.
"Apple's bringing the upgrades and innovative new features, while Goldgenie is bringing the luxury to the iPhone 8", said the company.
If you want to buy the iPhone Edition on day one, you are going to have to spend a lot of money. This could mean that the company will be ditching the regular Rose Gold color variant that has been seen on so many iPhone generations in the past.
Apple's next iPhones will launch on Tuesday September 12 at 10am PT (1pm EST, 6pm BST, 3am on Wednesday, September 13 AEST) where the world's press will descend on the new Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino, California. We talk about the importance of distinguishing the iPhone 8 from the other iPhones and how Apple will do it. We are expecting to see a new stainless steel chassis and a glass back on Apple's new iPhone.
In a series of tweets from Apple blogger John Gruber, we learn that an inductive (wireless) charging accessory may be sold separately and that the function may not be fully available until the iOS 11.1 operating system arrives after the handset launch. He estimates Samsung, which takes an average of three months to ramp up plants for commercial production, will ship 50 million units of OLED displays to Apple by the end of this year.
Apple is nearly certain to introduce a new system-on-a-chip (SoC) for the iPhone 8, as is usually the case with major iPhone releases.
Well, the fact of the matter is that we just don't know, because Apple observes a policy of secrecy which puts MI6 to shame.
The higher price of the OLED panels from Samsung would explain why the iPhone 8 might cost around $1,000, while current iPhone Plus models cost around $200 to $300 less.
"It is unclear what Apple's product lineup will look like post-launch since this is the first time Apple is offering a third form factor at a September launch event", Sacconaghi said. It's been reported previously on several occasions that Apple wants to place the Touch ID fingerprint sensor underneath the OLED display.
Friday, September 15 is a highly logical guess as to when pre-orders will start, and unsurprisingly, that's the date being cited by German site Macerkopf.
