Over the years it seems that the prices of smartphones has gone up as well, especially flagship phones made by bigger tech companies like Apple and Samsung. In fact recent reports have suggested that Appleâ€™s iPhone 8 could cost upwards of $1,000, but it seems that Apple might not be alone.
In a report out of Taiwan by IT Home (via Android Authority), it seems that the publication has posted the prices of the various Galaxy Note 8 models. The Note 8 is expected to be offered in varying storage sizes and if their information is accurate, the lowest-end model with 64GB of storage will be priced at 6,288 yuan which is roughly $940.
The mid-range model with 128GB of storage will be priced at 7,088 yuan which is around $1,060, while the most expensive version with 256GB of storage will retail for 7,988 yuan, which is almost $1,200. Of course it should be noted that thereâ€™s no way to know if these prices are accurate, but it isnâ€™t the first time that weâ€™re hearing that the Note 8 could be expensive.
Also the prices listed arenâ€™t in USD, which means that the prices for the US or other markets might be different and not necessarily a direct conversion (although usually it is pretty close). Either way weâ€™ll have the official details in the coming days, so check back with us on the 23rd of August for the official information.
