How much the '$1,000' iPhone X costs around the world

Apple set a new pricing bar for ultra-premium smartphones with the iPhone X, which costs a whopping $US1,000 in the US.

Indeed, few phones, at least their base models, break the four-digit price mark. $US1,000 is a lot to ask for a device that may only last a couple years before you buy another one.

We haven’t tested the iPhone X’s performance yet, but even if we did, it would be hard to predict how long Apple’s new A11 Bionic chip turning the wheels inside the iPhone X would carry it before it started to slow down.

But if you live outside the US, the iPhone X’s price tag could be an especially harsh demand, as Apple’s new ultra-premium iPhone X can cost considerably more abroad.

Higher pricing outside the US for Apple devices isn’t a new phenomenon, as many of Apple’s devices traditionally cost more abroad. But seeing as the iPhone X’s price tag is already a big question in American minds, it’s easy to assume that it will be harder to justify whether the iPhone X will be worth it if you live outside the US.
