Apple iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus (7s, 7s Plus) price and release date

Update: Apple will hold an event to announce three new iPhones and a new Apple Watch model with LTE connectivity on September 12th.

The Apple iPhone X, the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are coming soon. At least that's what our experience tells us: Apple has a tradition of unveiling its new phones in September, which is just two months away.

With so many rumors floating around about all three new iPhones that are expected to get unveiled this year, it will be hard for Apple to keep it all a mystery.

We already seem to have a general understanding of the new iPhone 8: rumors paint a picture of a phone with a larger OLED display with a new aspect ratio fitting in a smaller body, a new design with glass on the back and the front, and a metal frame, as well as a new 3D face scanning technology that might replace or augment the Touch ID fingerprint scanner. But what about the expected price of this new super-charged iPhone 8 and its siblings, the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus?

Apple is expected to go all out with features on the iPhone 8 and position it as a new type of a 'pro' phone with the high price associated with such a device. While we don't have any information, here is an educated guess about the prices of the new iPhones.

Keep in mind, that all of the aforementioned figures are expected prices that are nowhere near official. They are based on Apple's iPhone history and recent leaks and rumors about the three new iPhones.

Lastly, what we seem to have more certainty about is the release date of the new iPhones. Samsung is rushing to introduce its new Galaxy Note 8 on August 23rd, which is always a good sign that the rush is to outpace Apple's iPhone launch. Here is the expected announcement and release dates for the new iPhone series:

Hey, lets give our flagship phones small spec upgrades 4 years in a row and introduce a new 'pro' category which will get all the good stuff the flagship should have gotten and price it 1100 dollars!!!

Copying? Lol, even the very android OS, touchscreen, software, sealed in battery, UI and build quality are a result of careful copying of the iphone. You can ask samsung for verification.

Apple is very clever. There are only two capacities for the new iPhones, 64GB and 256GB. Buyers tend to purchase the higher capacity iPhone.
