We are now fast approaching the start point for iPhone X pre-orders. These will go live on Friday morning, and Sprint is the first carrier to reveal the deal it’s prepared for would-be iPhone X owners.
It’s a pretty nice sounding affair, but not without caveats of course. You can save as much as $350 on the handset, which should come in handy considering its $999 starting price.
In order to take advantage of those savings however, you will need to use Sprint’s Flex leasing scheme and trade in an eligible smartphone. The list of those includes the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, iPhone 6S and 6S Plus, iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+, S7 and S7 edge, Note5, LG G5, G6, and V20, Google Pixel and Pixel XL, Moto Z Droid, Z Play, Z2 Force, Z Force Droid, and Z2 Play, BlackBerry Keyone, and the HTC U11.
If you bring one of those in you will pay $22.22 per month for the iPhone X, as part of an 18-month leasing program. After a year, you can trade the iPhone X in for a new lease. If you stick with the iPhone X after those initial 18 months, your payment jumps to $41.62 per month for six more months.
All of that means you’ll be shelling out a grand total of $649.68 for the handset, which is around $350 off its full retail value. The deal is going to be available for both existing Sprint customers and those who want to switch to the carrier.
