iPhone 8 Specs Look Awesome; but Consider This before You BuyBy Avery Robbins, UniversityHerald Reporter
The hype of iPhone 8 shows how it is a highly-anticipated phone of this year, but people may think twice on buying the device. Here's why!
Apple already sets the standard high for each iPhone that the device belongs to premium category. Learning from previous reports, there will be three iPhone models, a 4.7-inch, a 5.5-inch and 5.8-inch. The largest model is said to be the high-end iPhone sporting an AMOLED display with 2K resolution, according to CNET.
That being the case, the high-end iPhone will be getting a 'higher end' model that could cost a fortune. BGR has made a speculation that the OLED iPhone 8 won't cost cheap. The site learned from a familiar source that the high-end iPhone 8 will be 'almost bezel-less' and could be using a special sensor.
Citing from TrendForce, Apple plans to adopt Galaxy S7's curved screen display. It's reported that the Cupertino giant will obtain the OLED panel from Samsung in a deal worth $4.3 billion.

While the shift to OLED display sounds exciting, the fans are now speculating on its pricing. With all of the advanced upgrades and enticing hardware, Apple could sell the iPhone 8 for at least $1,000 - for the base model.

However, with such pricing, iPhone 8 should come with better things such as bigger battery capacity and larger scope for Siri to perform tasks. AppleInsider has learned that there will be an increased in internal storage and RAM - 3GB on board and memory space up to 256 GB.
The camera, in particular, will be a game changer - if Ming-Chi Kuo's prediction about it getting 3D optics comes true. The claim is making rounds on the internet as it will be a similar sensor found in Kinect Xbox.
Will you buy iPhone 8?
It is too early to ask but iPhone 8 is coming sometime in Q4 2017. It's probably time to save up.
