Needless to say, $999 is a lot to splurge on a phone, but it seems that flagship prices closing in on a grand are becoming the norm this year, rather than the exception, judging by the best and brightest that Apple or Samsung have to offer. The unique new iPhone X costs a thousand, for Apple has to recoup the development expenses and component costs that go with it, and even then it will be left with a slimmer profit than usual, say Wall Street analysts.
Given that the iPhone 7 and 8 cases are interchangeable, that’s not hard to imagine, yet it’s the third, brand new case line for the iPhone X that caught our attention. Apple dubs it the iPhone X Leather Folio, and it is capable of waking up your phone each time you open it, plus it offers discrete compartments for cards, notes or bills. The new folio is made of “specially tanned and finished European leather for a luxurious look and feel.”
