Rumor has it Apple could release three different versions of its next smartphone, offering a premium iPhone 7 Pro alongside the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. Now a new leak out of China offers even more details about the rumored iPhone trio.
The report claims to confirm that Apple will stop offering 16GB and 64GB storage configurations with the iPhone 7. Instead, the company will apparently switch 32GB, 128GB and 256GB variants across the board. The leak also offers possible pricing for all three devices in China, which lines up perfectly with at least one other recent report.
The iPhone 7 will allegedly start at 5288 yuan (roughly $795) for the 32GB version. If you want 128GB you’ll have to pay 6088 yuan ($915) and the 256GB model could cost 7088 yuan ($1066). The iPhone 7 Plus reportedly starts at 6088 yuan ($915) with 32GB, 6888 yuan ($1036) for 128GB, and 7888 yuan ($1186) for 256GB. Finally, the iPhone 7 Pro might cost at least 7088 yuan ($1066) with 32GB of storage, 7888 yuan ($1186) for 128GB of storage, and 8888 yuan ($1337) for 256GB.
It looks like the 32GB variant will cost about as much as a 16GB model normally would, suggesting Apple won’t jack up the price to reflect the extra storage space. By adding a third Pro device the company can charge even more for people who want all the bells and whistles. That could include a dual rear camera or a Smart Connector port, though the company may have already shelved both of those rumored features.
We still wouldn’t put too much faith in these rumors, but they certainly are starting to pile up. Better storage options and an iPhone 7 Pro are starting to look a lot more likely with every passing day.
