WE all expect the iPhone 8 — or the iPhone X, or whatever Apple’s 10-anniversary handset will be called — to be pricey. That’s what we explained in our previous article: Why your next smartphone could be more expensive. But that didn’t stop our jaws from dropping when we saw the alleged prices of the upcoming iDevice.

According to designer and serial leaker Benjamin Geskin, these are how much you’ll have to shell out if you want to take a bite out of the most premium Apple model that will be launched on September 12 (September 13 in the Philippines):

  • Apple iPhone 8, 64GB: $999, or roughly P51,074
  • Apple iPhone 8, 256GB: $1099, or around P56,186
  • Apple iPhone 8, 512GB: $1,199, or about P61,299

*Heart attack ensues* ?

Mobile devices like the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 (which cost P49,990 or $978 in the country, by the way; payment options here if you’re interested in it) should already have prepared us for this, but nah…

Then again, it’s not like we won’t buy an iPhone 8, barring any financial challenges. However, we’ll most likely settle for the cheapest among the three. It would be nice to have 512GB of internal storage, though. That’s more than what our Apple MacBook Pro has! ? And the price is close to how much our laptop is currently selling for, too. Heh.

If Geskin is right, then hopefully this article will help you brace for what’s ahead. Check back in as soon as the iPhone 8 gets unveiled, and let us know how you’re doing.
