iPhone 7 price leak shows a base model with 32GB of storage and an iPhone Pro

iPhone 7 price leak shows a base model with 32GB of storage and an iPhone Pro
We're only a few months away from an official announcement for the next generation iPhone, which is expected to be called the iPhone 7. There have been a fair number of rumors regarding the device, but not too much in terms of pricing or the storage tiers to be available. But a new leak appears to have some interesting news on that front.

The info comes from a leaker on Chinese social network Weibo who has had accurate info in the past. Interestingly, it looks like Apple will finally be listening to the cries of customers and getting rid of the 16GB models in favor of a base model of 32GB. Oddly, whereas the iPhone 7 will have storage tiers of 32GB, 64GB and 256GB, the iPhone 7 Plus and the iPhone 7 Pro will have tiers of 32GB, 128GB, and 256GB. And, that's the other interesting bit, it seems to confirm that there will be an iPhone Pro added to the lineup, although it is unclear exactly what will set that device apart from the standard iPhone 7 or the iPhone 7 Plus.

In terms of pricing, pocketnow already did a good job of matching up the current prices of the iPhone 6s models with the leak below. As you can see, prices are generally even for the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus except for a slight bump at the top for the 256GB of storage. However, if it's all accurate, that would mean the iPhone 7 Pro would start at a price over $1000, which is a bit crazy if you ask us.

That's the way it should be.

That's the way what should be? Over $1,000 for a mobile with just 32GB of storage?

It just says base model. The base iPhone 7 pro could have 64GB of storage. Assuming this leak is legitimate pricing of the final product.

They should release 8GB,16GB,256GB. So everyone go for 256 and pay the highest price.

Should've gotten the i5 6600k or a i7 4790k and gotten a better gpu.

you cant get 4790k if you want to get a ddr4 future proof motherboard and the GTX 980 was out of stock and not worth 300 more and the 980ti was like 450 more so yea the difference between the 6600 and 6700 is not more than 1000 plus a gtx 970 is more than enough for 1080p online gaming

Those specs look proper. If you are gaming at 1080p thats a good looking pc.

I would rather get 5820K because the price is close to 6700K but it is way more future proof and it has two more brains under the hood.

Maybe not insane, definitely greedy.

I saw a translation for this and it states that the pro model is uncertain. So it pretty much lays doubt on the legitimacy on the whole thing.

The 7 is crap I'll wait on the 8 because it's going to have all the new tech that isn't ready for the 7.

It didn't come out yet and you're calling it crap. LOL BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA.

Leaks suggest it is crap. Even Apple suggest it is crap, at least compared to next years iPhone 8, yep I said 8 rumor has it that they are skipping the 7s because next years iPhone is to good to be an s. I know it's just a rumor but Apple rumors have a high chance of coming true. Apple themselves said they have a lot of new tech that isn't ready for the iPhone 7.

Crap is probably too strong a word, but all the rumours point to it only being an incremental update over the 6S, rather than the full redesign we've come to expect every other model. Looks like they're saving the good stuff for next year, which'll be the iPhone's 10th anniversary.

Wow, your Apple fanboy level is so high you even hit on your fellow Apple users who decided to skip this version of the iPhone.

People should be permitted to be enthusiastic about something without someone else criticizing them for it.

We have enough past products to base a very good assumption on. Also considering the leaks of claimed features and claimed look, yea; even fans are saying its underwhelming. Do you deny this?!

LOL, I already called it with post 13. http://www.phonearena.com/news/WSJ-iPhone-7-wont-bring-major-changes-because-new-Apple-technologies-are-not-ready-yet_id82455/comments/page/2 It's actually kinda cool with iOS 10 consuming less storage space and yet they're still expanding the base capacity. It's the opposite of what they did last year with their battery, the hardware consumed less power so they actually put in a smaller capacity battery than the year before.

Yeah, I told him two years back to treat others with respect on this site and I'd leave him be, obviously that never happened. He always justified his actions by citing other trolls, but he's the worst of the worst.

Well, welcome to the insanity that is Phone Arena. They're not always the first to report the news, but the writers are pretty decent and the clowns commenting are colorful and typically good for a laugh or two. You'll hear the term fandroid and isheep on a regular basis, but when it all comes down to it, everyone here actually signed up for a membership to a mobile phone specific web site so there's a good deal of hypocrisy going on at all times.

Ya i noticed them names I sheep and fandroid lol but they can call me what they want like my name deviceguy2016 says I like iOS and OS all devices that appeals to me, not just looks, I've got iPhone 6S plus, Sony Xperia Z5 premium, LG V 10 and both operating systems have great features so i don't favor just one lol, I'm a device junkie I guess I'm 26 and love tech like most on here, but it's a bit insanity like you said and fighting with MXY not worth it, but thanks for the heads up.. It's humorous too very true but it's all good

Haha. I called it. I said if there was gonna be a Pro, it was gonna be over $1000. I called it!!! What you gotta say no Darkkajedi. Looks like the force was with me...YET AGAIN!!!. Priced so many won't be buying it. Just to get a dual camera. Now that you've had an article claiming the S7 edge isn't worth $800, when we gonna see an article about this phone not being worth $1000. No new features, just a dual camera....hah!

How can you like something that is just rumors at this point. Might not even be a a dual camera or 256gb.
