The only way Apple includes AirPods with an iPhone is if:

A) they make another SKU for a bundle, perhaps offering a slight discount rather than buying separately. (Kinda like how you can buy an iPad for a certain price, OR add ~$120 more to include LTE)
B) This godPhone 8 has a single, very expensive model where AirPods are included for the ultimate premium experience.

Unless they bump the price of that phone by an additional $160.00
I could see this happening. If OLED displays are reserved for the high end model due to production constraints, throw in some AirPods and sell the package at top tier prices.

It's one rumor...nothing there to set it apart from other rumors.

You can believe it or not.

Wait a week or two or a month more and another rumor may pop up.

Get the picture?

Rumors come and rumors go, though this one just seems so contradictory and so strangely put together one cannot help but wonder if this is a fabricated rumor designed to intentionally mislead, or be based on outdated information prior to a shift in strategy. If it is the latter, thank goodness Samsung is around to keep Apple on their toes.
