Virgin Mobile has announced the prices it will charge for iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, as well as its expected iPhone X pricing.

Virgin Mobile has confirmed what it will charge iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus customers when pre-orders commence at 5:01pm today. It's also precisely when Apple will also commence pre-sales for the new phones, and it joins Vodafone, which has already announced its iPhone 8 plans.

Here's how Virgin Mobile's plan pricing for the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus compare. Virgin is currently running a promotion where "selected handsets" get a 1GB bonus, bringing its total up to 3GB, but the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus will not qualify for this deal, so the base level plan comes with 2GB.

You can sort any column in the table to compare against total price, capacity, handset repayments or any other detail by clicking each column at the top.

Virgin Mobile is also pre-announcing its indicative pricing for the iPhone X, which won't actually go on pre-sale until 27 October 2017. We've calculated out the plan costs and inclusions based on Virgin Mobile's current deals, but it's always possible it may increase inclusions or change pricing points before 27 October 2017, which is why it's calling these indicative prices only.

Still, if you're on the fence as to whether to wait for iPhone X or pre-order an iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus today, it's useful information to have. Here's how the pricing stacks up:
