Apple has been so far silent about the iPhone 7 launch, but it looks like the event will take place in the first week of September.
This leaves fans with only a few days to guess the approximate features and specifications. Most, however, will already have worries about the pricing of the device. Apple has always commanded a premium price in the smartphone market and this is unlikely to change with the iPhone 7 despite sales falling in the last two quarters for the first time in the iPhone history. New leaked information has given out pricing of iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus phones.
The prices of the Apple iPhone 7 are expected to start from $790, which is in fact the current pricing of the base iPhone 6S. For this price, users will not only be getting a significant upgrade in terms of features, but memory is an important element that will improve in the new device. The 16 GB base versions of the iPhone will be completely eliminated with the iPhone 7. As pointed out by several rumors, there will be three versions of the iPhone 7 based on memory – 32 GB, 128 GB, and 256 GB. These represent a significant upgrade over the existing configurations – 16 GB, 32 GB, and 64 GB.
Users have long complained about the lack of microSD card support on the iPhone and the arrival of these new memory configurations should once and for all into the discussion. The higher end 256 GB version should be more than sufficient enough even for higher end users. This amount of memory is also necessary if the phone is to be highly capable in terms of 4K video recording. The 4K videos occupy a lot of space and even a 32 GB variant is not enough if one plans to record a lot of 4K videos.
Even though these are only leaked prices, one can expect the official prices to be almost similar close to this figure. The top end variant of the iPhone 7 with 256 GB of storage comes at a $1060. This is slightly cheaper than the iPhone 7 Plus which costs $1180 with the same amount of storage. The base iPhone 7 Plus just manages to escape the four-digit mark, as it is expected to be priced around $910. The fact that these prices are almost similar to the existing iPhone range could work in favor of the iPhone 7.
