The lower-storage version is still a pricy $999, or £999 for United Kingdom customers (I think the exchange rate magically got worse in Apple’s world), but brace yourself for the cost of a 256GB phone.
Forrester Research’s principal analyst Julie Ask said loyal Apple enthusiasts will purchase the iPhone X.
While the iPhone X sits atop the range as the most badass iPhone money can buy, the iPhone 8 is more of a minor step up from the outgoing iPhone 7, with the Plus version for those who want a slightly bigger display and have clown pockets. The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are part of the newest generation of Apple’s smartphones. “Rivals will be watching how quickly Apple can meet demand for the iPhone X and begin to build margins on a new design with new components”.
VI. It incorporates QI wireless charging technology (this is is also available on the newly launched iPhone 8).
If past launches are anything to go by, the device will go on sale a week after their unveiling.
The pre-orders, Redington India, said could be made from any of the 3,000 stores it has across the country.
What will it be called?
It could be said that Apple’s decision to release a new iPhone at a $999 price point is evidence, in and of itself, of the company’s pricing power. “The relatively high prices of the iPhone X are a necessary and important mechanism to control demand in the near term”.
Consider Apple’s fiscal 2015 – the first full year of iPhone 6 and 6 Plus sales, and the last time Apple overhauled the iPhone’s form factor. The phone comes with a 5.80-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 1440 pixels by 2960 pixels at a PPI of 570 pixels per inch. Ultimately, it will be about selling the iPhone 8 as the great, next phone – and the X as something even better than that. The California-based tech firm adopted a facial recognition solution, called the Face ID, in the X model while removing the traditional home button with the fingerprint scanner. Apple has already patented a way of embedding Touch ID into the screen with the latest leaks revealing a virtual home button that could be hidden.

How much will it cost?
The iPhone X is seen as the next big change in the evolution of smartphone technology.
Long the Achilles heel of smartphone development, the slow pace of battery evolution means today’s iPhones last about as long when fully charged as the first one released a decade ago. A solid phone that takes good pictures and lets you communicate with loved ones doesn’t have to cost that much. Unlikely, but it does mean that you’ll be able to ditch the phone in a number of situations, be it on a run, out for dinner, or around the house, and for many that will be a game changer. I’m finding it hard to justify it and label iPhone X as a device that’ll take all your pains away and make your human life a lot better.
The iPhone 8 is about to be released. While real world tests are still pending, Apple claims that the user should be looking directly at the phone, with eyes open, to get authenticated.
Edge-to-edge, bezel-less displays are the style of 2017.
