Apple is reportedly working on a special phone for its upcoming 10th anniversary. According to the Wall Street Journal, a new, high-end version of the device will be produced for the special day, and could set you back about a grand.
The phone will apparently come with next-gen features including a curved OLED screen, which may resemble the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge. In fact, Samsung may even be hooking Apple up with the curved screen.
The device will be marketed as a premium or high-end version of the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, TechCrunch reported. The rumored 5.8-inch curved display will be part of the high-end iPhone, according to cultofmac.com, but the 4.7- and 5.5-inch models will boast LCD panels you would find on all other versions of the device.
The new version is also predicted to have a USB-C instead of a Lightning port, which many users will favor. And as TechCrunch reported, it will be the first time Apple utilized something found on a competitor’s product. A USB-C is able to transmit power, video and more at a faster speed than Lightning or USB3.
The new iPhone is also predicted to have a mini touch bar that replaces the home button, along with a sleek design made completely out of glass. It’s unclear whether these features will be restricted to the high end version or not.
While some shoppers may not have the easiest time making a decision on which phone to buy, they will finally have the option of picking a limited edition, premium model from Apple. The more than $1,000 rumored price for the high end phone could get you a 256GB iPhone 7 and a few ice cream cones instead, but who’s counting?
