Plenty of detail from Brian Heater:
Typical of Apple leaks in recent years, we’ve heard trickles of information on just about every piece of the new device, but, as always, everything is still up in the air. The screen, the camera, the pricing — even the name has been subject to debate in recent weeks.
iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone X. What about price?
Much to Apple’s chagrin, this is going to be one of the phone’s most discussed new features. Samsung took flack for pricing the Note 8 at just under $1,000, and the rumors are true, that’s nothing compared to what Cupertino’s got cooking. Various reports have priced the premium model around $1,000 to $1,200.
Price will be the critical noise for awhile. And iPhone 8 X will be back ordered for awhile, too.
