Highlights
  • iPhone 8/Edition may be launched in 64GB and 128GB options only
  • It is tipped to be priced at $900 and $999 respectively
  • Leaked retail packaging hints that it may be called iPhone 8

Just a day before, possible colour variants for the new iPhone models this year and their prices were leaked, and now a fresh leak puts a new spin on the price of the anniversary edition iPhone. Furthermore, retail packaging of the device has also been leaked hinting at whether the new anniversary iPhone will be called iPhone 8 or iPhone Edition.

Business Insider cites UBS analysts to report that the iPhone 8/Edition will be launched in only two storage variants - 64GB and 256GB. Furthermore, it claims that the price will start at $900 (roughly Rs. 57,600) for the 64GB and will max out at $999 (roughly Rs. 64,000) for the 256GB variant. "Apple tends not to price far from the high end competition. With the Galaxy [S8] Plus at $840 and the [Galaxy] Note [8] at [almost] $950, we think a $900 price tag for the base OLED model makes sense," the analysts state in their report.

This refutes previous reports of three storage variants for the iPhone 8/Edition - 64GB, 256GB, and 512GB - priced at $999 (roughly Rs. 64,000), $1,099 (roughly Rs. 70,400), and $1,199 (roughly Rs. 76,800) respectively. With the unveiling only days away, the official pricing details won't remain a mystery for long.

Furthermore, tipster Evan Blass adds more meat to the drama that surrounds around the naming of the anniversary edition iPhone. He has now leaked what he claims to be from the final retail packages of the OLED iPhone cases from two different case makers. Both the packages call the OLED iPhone as iPhone 8, refuting recent rumours of it being called iPhone Edition.

Recent leaks suggested that the new iPhone models will be called the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone Edition, refuting past leaks of it being called iPhone 7s, iPhone 7s Plus, and iPhone 8 (OLED variant).

Whatever the case may be, the final anniversary edition iPhone is said to sport significant changes like an OLED display, bezel-less design, vertical dual camera setup, glass back for wireless charging, AR features, facial recognition, and much more.
