Rumors about the “IPhone 7” have cooled down recently, especially that talk that there would be an (even) more expensive edition, possibly called “IPhone Pro”, with some special features. The consensus, apparently, would be that we would have to get used to a very boring and conservative update this year.
Well, ladies and gentlemen, I bring news. Unreliable news, it is true, but it is still something to think about: a list of models and prices of the next iPhones painted on the Chinese microblogging network Weibo, and, in the smallest chance that it represents something minimally real, it seems that such “iPhone Pro” is hot, yes – as well as another novelty dreamed of by users.
This is because the user, who claims to have obtained the leaks from reliable sources, says that iPhones will have the option of 256GB of storage. The model layout is, at first glance, controversial: while the common “iPhone 7” would have options of 32GB, 64GB and 256GB, the “iPhone 7 Plus” and “iPhone 7 Pro” would come in capacities of 32GB, 128GB and 256GB . Confused? It is because it is.
The table above shows the supposed prices of the coming models – in the case of a Chinese source, the values come in yuan, of course, but performing the conversion and looking at the current list of iPhones prices in the United States and China, we can have a good idea of what may be coming. The “iPhone 7” would start at ¥ 5288, which in practice would mean the same $ 649 as the cheaper 6s. The “iPhone 7 Plus” would also have similar values to the current 6s Plus, starting at US $ 749, while the “iPhone Pro”, following the logic, would start 100 dollars more, at US $ 849. 256GB models would not represent a price increase; they would just become the most expensive option among the three available.
Everything is very beautiful – or not – but it remains to be seen what awaits us in terms of practical news. Will we get new design and interesting features, or is it just a circumstantial update? We have a few more months before we find out.
