The iPhone X has finally been launched and although it was released alongside two other smartphones, no one really cares about them anymore unfortunately. The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are definitely upgrades over the last gen iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, but anyone who takes a look at the iPhone X will probably end up buying that instead, provided of course, you can afford to! Let's admit it, it does look great and although the design is nothing we haven't seen already from the likes of Xiaomi, Samsung and Andy Ruben's Essential Phone to name a few, it still is the most beautiful "iPhone" ever.

If you thought the iPhone X was going to be costly in the US at $999,, wait till you hear what it will cost to buy in India! It has been estimated that after taxes, this little beauty will set an Indian customer back by INR 102,000 or $1,565 (approximately)! That is however, for the model with 256GB in-built storage. If you would rather buy the one with just 64GB of internal storage, it will set you back by INR 89,000 or $1,387 (approximately). The bottom-line is, if you are reading this in the US, remember that people from countries with weaker economy have to spend a LOT more to get their hands on one of these!

If you have been following the latest buzz around the upcoming iPhones then you probably already know that they are coming out this Tuesday, which is September 12. As per reliable sources, Apple's brand new headquarter will be the venue of the unveiling for more than just two phones this year.

Apart from introducing the expected upgrades to the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus with the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, the world will witness Apple reveal a third phone as well. This will be the very first time that Apple is expected to release three iPhones at a single event and this third entrant will be called, "iPhone X." A new Apple Watch and may

The iPhone X will of course be the one with the borderless OLED display, if the leaks and rumors are to be believed of course. Although, at this point, it's only a matter of official confirmation because all but the actual handset has been revealed. The question is, will you be picking up an iPhone X for $1,000+ or will the iPhone 8 or iPhone Plus be enough for you?

It certainly looks that way because a very reputed source (The Wall Street Journal) has just revealed that Apple will be launching the bezel-less beauty on September 12, which is roughly two weeks from now. I called it a beauty but keep in mind that a lot of people disagree with the design choice. Nevertheless, that has not kept the upcoming smartphone from becoming the most anticipated handset of 2017.

Strangely enough, certain rumors are also predicting that Apple will also be launching the iPhone 7s and 7s Plus on the same date and if that turns out to be true, I must admit that it would be bizarre! Other expected products to be launched at the event include a brand new Apple Watch with LTE and a new Apple TV with support for 4K streaming.

It would be interesting to see how well people receive the iPhone 8 with its wireless charging capabilities, facial recognition technology and borderless design. A lot of talk has been going on around the probable price of the smartphone, which is expected to start at $1,000 and go up as high as $1,400 for the models with more storage. Of course, we all know that in reality, the steep price won't matter and people will probably buy even more of these phones this year because of the price itself. We can't help it; most human beings are vain creatures!

Boy Genius report or BGR has confirmed that what you see in the picture above you is exactly how the iPhone 8 will look or at least "99 percent the phone" anyway. Jonathan Geller, who is the founder and the editor-in-chief of BGR went on record saying "Those pictures, while they're not the real phone - they're based on designs and molds and engineering samples - I would say that's 99 percent the phone." He made the proclamation on "Squawk Box."

From what we have gathered from this leak and also previous ones from credible leaksters, the following bullet points can be summarized about the upcoming iPhone 8.

• It will have a borderless 5.8-inch display with 2.5D glass
• The 18:9 ratio we saw previously on the Galaxy S8 (18.5:9) and the LG G6 are going to make an appearance on the iPhone 8 as well
• The dual cameras will be arranged vertically
• The Touch ID sensor may or may not be integrated into the large power button
• At least one version of the iPhone 8 should feature an OLED display
• It will likely feature wireless charging

What do you think of the iPhone 8 if it does indeed look like this? Do you love it or hate it? Let us know in the comments.

Although it isn't official, we now have a very clear cut idea about how the iPhone 8 (or iPhone 7S, whatever they decide to call it) will look when it comes out in September. The images that you see in here is pretty much how the iPhone 8 will look and rest assured that this has left the realms of rumors and leaks and entered the plain of fact! Unbox Therapy showed it all to us, albeit via prototype models than the real thing. You can check the video out below to know everything that you need to.

Given that this is the model on which all case manufacturers are building their products on, this is pretty much it. Lewis Hilsenteger has an interesting theory in mind regarding the fingerprint scanning technology which the next iPhone will integrate; he thinks that instead of integrating the fingerprint scanner inside the display like many of us were hoping to see, Apple will simply skip it altogether! Instead they will go for an advanced version of the face recognition technology which we saw on the Galaxy S8 earlier. This is in sharp contrast with the speculation that Apple will integrate the FP scanner right inside the oversized power button. We will just have to wait and see what's what I guess.
