Excited about the next iPhone? You should be. This one is going to be quite a different beast with innovative design and cutting edge features.

The 5.8-inch phone will come with an edge to edge OLED display and 3-D sensing. What does it smell off? A sky-high price tag. The phone will mark the 10th anniversary of the first iPhone costing well above a staggering $1,000.

All traditional flagship phones come with a near $650 price tag, but the new iPhone can not settle for that. While the price is going to be the highest until now, the iPhone 7 Plus has been close costing $1,000 with tax. It will have most of the features expected of the iPhone 8 like a dual-camera system. The high price is mostly being associated with the 3-D sensing technology.

Some reports suggest that Apple will also be removing the physical home button, replacing it with a fingerprint sensor. In addition, the volume buttons on the sides may also be substituted by touch-sensitive inlays.

If the entry price is above a $1,000 plus tax, then the next versions of the same will come with a couple hundred extra bucks. You might end up paying more for your iPhone than you did for your MacBook.

The iPhone 7 256GB version that cost $849 was not much far in price but the iPhone 7 sold out within three months of its release, and the iPhone 8 is expected to do the same even with the high price.

The phone is supposed to release in September, but it is not really known yet if the phone will be named iPhone 8 or iPhone X. We are looking forward to the release as much as you are.
