    A 1400$ iPhone means Apple will charge 1650 euro for it over here and that is definitely waaaay beyond the price I'm willing to pay for it. Actually, anything over 999 euro is too much in my book. I'll probably stick to my 6s plus for yet another year then.

    Only if I could get a good price selling my 7+, which I’m really quite happy with anyway. Or it could be a letter to Santa!

    If the new iPhone goes that much higher than what i paid for my 7+, I may look at the s8+ or the new Note. As Garz pointed out, Samsung's new hardware is really good and still competitively priced.

    I'd really have to examine my priorities to even entertain that price point for a phone exclusive or not. And I don't want to finance it for 24 months either so for me the 8 is not promising for my bank account. If I decide to upgrade my 7 Plus then the 7s Plus would potentially be more of an upgrade path for me depending on the new features it has to offer.

    No way! I will not pay more than u$s 900 on a phone that is going to lower its price in a year and is going to be old in two!

    Not a chance. I'm more interested in what they will do with the 7S and 7S Plus at this point. Will those be worthy upgrades from a 7 Plus? I doubt it, but we will see.

    It will have to be innovative beyond belief. What I've seen/heard so far is making it more likely that I'll trade up for the 7s+.

    No, not $1400. 1 Grand maybe. But the more I think about it, the less likely I am to get one at any of those prices. Sure, the screen will be better, but camera will stay the same and it will basically just copy features that have been on android forever, ahem, wireless charging. Resolution is staying the same still. So, yeah, not sure it's worth the cost if rumors are to be believed.

    No - If Apple wants to sell rediculously priced phone they should take the same road they did with the "Apple Watch" edition. Make a premium one. and then a regular one for "the rest of us." I'm still on a 6+ because it is good enough and the 7 offered nothing I couldnt live without.

    There will still be some features on this new phone that are new. If Apple is able to integrate TouchID under the display like that Foxconn insider said in a thread on reddit than that would be major, also the AR capabilities look insane and Android can't even touch it even though Project Tango is a thing but Google and other Android OEMs only seem interested in VR. The Edition iPhone will also have a better body:screen ratio than even the galaxy S8/+. I'm hoping it won't be that high at launch and all these rumors end up being fake news.

    Yeah I'm getting it, but what I get for my 7 Plus will be a big factor also.

    If the cost of the next iPhone is anywhere near what the rumors are, then I'm rocking the 7+ for a long time. And if future devices are the same or more, then it's back to Android Central I go.

    Well, the latest rumors point to that Touch ID under the screen not happening. So, assuming it doesn't, then it'd be harder for me to justify it. I use Touch ID all the time and Apple going towards face scanning instead of that would make it difficult to unlock the phone while driving or shopping. I don't want to be looking weird while staring down at my phone to use Apple Pay.

    As for AR, I'm more interested in VR. Hence, why I care a bit more about the resolution of the iPhone. It'd make more realistic while looking at VR content. I had a PS Vita that had AR, didn't much care for it. VR is more immersive, though the few times I've tried it, I got a little headache.

    I think the rumors might have missed something. They may sell exclusively 256GB or 256 & 512, but price is $100 or $200 higher than 7S+.
    So a 7S+ 256GB is $969, then 8 would be $1069 for 256GB, Just not sell a $969 or $869 model. There's your $1000 iPhone.
    Or maybe round up to $1100 for 256GB, and $1200 for 512GB?

    I just think they will keep the price high by eliminating low storage SKUs in order to limit demand while bumping the 8 up by about $100.

    So if the 8 is $100-$150 more than the equivalent 7S+, I'll think about it.

    Either way I'm waiting 3 months after launch to see how it goes. No preordering.

    Most probably.
    My 7 Plus 128GB cost me $1,355.85 CAD taxes included.
    So $45 more wouldn’t break my bank.

    But $1,400 + tx would be a no go.
    Actually if it was $1,400 USD it would be roughly $1,900 CAD + tax so around $2,100 all in after taxes, before any accessories and AppleCare+, etc. That would be utterly insane.

    Absolutely not. The S8 and S8+ are going for $450 and $550 right now and the iPhone 8 is reportedly going to have similar features as those devices. Apple will have no reason to justify the high costs of the iPhone 8 when the S8s have similar specs and cost hundreds of dollars less.

    A 7 plus 128GB is already $1419 in Australia, 256Gb = $1569.

    I know right!
    It's crazy expensive in Australia and Apple better not price the iPhone 8 over $1700 AUD +++

    Nope, the Plus size is as expensive as I will go. I find it interesting only a 1/3 or so here are saying they will get the 7s instead, most will stick with what they have or maybe go to Android. Who typically upgrades every year? Could you afford to upgrade to the expensive one next year as well?

    I think the numbers are skewed because this thread is working under an assumption that the iPhone 8 will cost $1,400. My assumptions:

    1. It won’t be called iPhone 8. Apple is very good at marketing. They’re not going to harm sales of the supposed 7s by releasing an 8 and making the 7s seem outdated the moment it’s released. Also, they don’t want to market the “Pro” model as iterative, which is what the current numbering scheme does.

    2. It won’t cost $1,400. Will it cost more than any iPhone ever released? Absolutely. Will it cost twice the amount of the entry-level 7s? Doubtful.

    To answer your questions, i upgrade annually and I can absolutely afford to upgrade to the expensive one this year. Does it mean I will? I don’t make that call until I know exactly what I’m getting into. I’ll know in September after Uncle Timmy stands on stage and gives me the details.

    Do we know when in September? It usually is the second week of the month right?
