Before now, a report came out saying that Apple’s redesigned iPhone 8 will be priced $1000 (though the iPhone 7’s is still expected to start at $649) and now, a new rumour indicates that a Galaxy S8 might actually manage to top Apple’s price for the iPhone 8.

The phone might cost at least $100 more than its predecessor, but it will be cheaper than iPhone 8 which is supposed to go on sale in mid-September.
