IPhone 8 leaks, rumours, renders and mock-ups all over the net

While we always knew that the iPhone 8 would be pricey, a new report from the Economic Daily News (via Digitimes) provides us with a better idea as to why the highly anticipated iPhone 8 will be the most expensive iPhone Apple has ever released. As you can see in the picture, expect the eighth IPhone will be slightly larger than the base 7s, but don't make it to the 7s Plus that may indicate a screen size of 5 inches with his framework. In fact, reports from the rumor mill suggest that the bezels surrounding the iPhone 8 display will only be about 4mm all around, a tidbit seemingly confirmed by our exclusive look at an iPhone 8 dummy model earlier this week. While two will be an iterative update to last year's iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, the third will be the drastically different iPhone 8.

It's been previously reported that Apple is planning to embed its Touch ID sensor beneath the iPhone 8's OLED display. Apple's widely rumored to launch an overhauled iPhone 8 this year.

Of course, a more expensive 3D Touch panel is just one of a few components that will cost more on the iPhone 8 than on existing iPhones. A new market report suggests that an Apple supplier, TPK holding has backed the iPhone maker into a corner.

If Apple can properly market these features, and as long as customers find these features worthwhile, Apple may be set to enjoy a substantial boost in iPhone average selling prices in this coming product cycle. Apple is expected to unveil its next generation iPhone in September. The device won't differ much from the iPhone 7 in terms of size.

He also revealed in that statement that he will decide at the beginning of next week whether he is "in a position to compete". As of now, McIlroy is still slated to play next week's BMW PGA at Wentworth, where he won the title in 2014.

However, the source goes on to claim that Apple is willing to take a hit on the 3D Touch sensors, absorbing the costs rather than passing them onto consumers.

While these by themselves add 100 dollars to the cost of an iPhone, the new wireless charging technology, the integration of TouchID into the display and the new design are all expected to add a substantial amount to the price of the iPhone 8.

According to a report by Chinese newspaper Economic Daily News, cited by Digitimes, TPK Holdings is charging Apple between $18 and $22 per display, up massively from the $7-9 it now charges.
