As September approaches, we’re starting to hear more and more whispers about Apple’s iPhone 7. Some of those rumors may be true and some may not. In this case, we may be in the latter camp, but some of the details still make sense. A new leak that appeared on Weibo allegedly reveals the pricing details for several iPhone 7 devices.
The listing, according to the Weibo post, points to base models, middle models and top-end models for 32GB, 64GB and 256GB storage options for the next iPhones. Obviously the 256GB storage option is big news here, since Apple and most other smartphone manufacturers have so far kept things to 128GB of base storage at the max. (Yes, Android phones such as the Galaxy S7 can increase that with a microSD card, but we’re talking about base storage here.)
Also of note is the reference to not only an iPhone 7 and an iPhone 7 Plus but, again, the rumored iPhone 7 Pro. That’s supposed to be the most expensive flagship device with every bell and whistle Apple is working up. The storage options appear to change there, according to the Weibo post, with 32GB, 128GB and 256GB options. As 9to5Mac notes, it looks like the Pro will have a premium over the other options, which is expected, but we don’t yet know what sort of bonus that extra cash will get us. Maybe the dual cameras we’ve heard about? Though, one rumor recently said those aren’t yet ready for primetime.
Take this with a grain of salt, but this rumor at least makes sense.
