    Let's assume there will be at least 3 iPhone models announced in the coming months (ignoring storage tiers).

    Which model will you buy? In the comments feel free to expand on your choice and let us know what storage option you want.

    My choice remains with the 5.8 OLED. I feel this specific model will provide the refresh I have been wanting away from the 6/6s/7 for the last three years. Also, some of the latest technology with the OLED model incorporated has my interest piqued with facial recognition and or Iris scanning, And of course the display itself.

    Storage tier, I would prefer 64GB or 128GB. I don't require much for storage, but better have more storage Than less.

    I will be upgrading from 7+ so I will get iPhone "8" , because of the bigger and OLED display, wireless charging, 4k 60 fps camera recording

    Non-participant this year. My 6S does everything I need it to do and will continue to do so. No longer interested in spending money just to have the latest and greatest, so I will probably use it at least another year.

    And there is nothing wrong with this. As long as your iPhone meets your needs and expectations, and you're not wanting the latest device for whatever reasons, then that's all that matters.

    I will definitely for sure will not be upgrading to the "8" this year as I'm not a huge fan of a vertical camera. I have a 7 Plus and I'm fine the horizontal cameral.

    I figure I will wait to see the official unveiling of the phones. If the 8 is too expensive and the 7s and 7s+ look like the last three iterations of the iPhone I will just wait.

    I have a 6 and will be upgrading to the 7s. I want the 7s over the 8 because I want Touch ID and I personally find the plus model too large for me

    Judging by the mocked up models, the white iPhone 8 looks terrible, emphasising the top notch and what’s left of the bezels.

    For the number of people who said they would never pay over $1k for an iPhone, the 8 (Pro) got a lot of votes:p

    I have a 7 plus, and it was expensive. Have no plans to upgrade this year.

    New technology always fascinates me over aesthetics with the iPhone . But primarily what I am seeking from this 5.8 OLED model is the higher resolution display. Everything else will naturally fall into place for me. I won't say no to the "7S" model, but my focus is intended on the OLED model.

    Depends on the cost but one thing is for sure; I ain't spending a lot of money to get a 7S or whatever they decide to call it. If I can't afford the 8 then I will just do another year on my trusty 6+. Personally I think apple will be taking the absolute piss if they release the 7S/7S+ at the current iphone price points and charge £1000+ for the 8.

    The mid-cycle S models have always brought some good upgrades and kept the phone very competitive with/surpassed android flagship devices out at the same time. If the 7S comes out with what we assume it will which is simply updated processor, ram, upgraded camera and wireless charging then its a joke. The top spec android devices have all of this coupled with a much better screen with much smaller bezels and all for around half the price of what the 8 will probably cost. The 8 will basically be what apple should be selling as their flagship device and at the usual price points.

    Flogging me a 3 year old design with some simple internal updates and a sub par screen for £620 is rude. Asking me to pay £1000+ for a phone that has feature parity with £500 android devices is just a slap around the face. I love my iPhone and all my apple gear but it really does seem like apple are pushing their luck with the new models/pricing.

    We need an option for 7s or plus and 8. I might buy both.
