Apple, the tech giant is going to celebrate the 10th anniversary of iPhone and expected to bring three new devices in September this year. A report by Goldman Sachs suggests that the best one may cost as much as a MacBook; $1,000 for the base model.
Another analyst Simona Jankowski and her team told their clients in a note seen by Business Insider: “We expect the iPhone 8 to have 128GB and 256GB models priced at $999 and $1,099, respectively.”
If the reports stand true then it is obvious that we’ll have to pay for the base model of iPhone 8 at least $130 more than the most expensive model currently available.
The company is also expected to release an updated version of the current models, the iPhone 7S and 7S Plus, which would cost $649 and $769 respectively.
Although rumours regarding the release date of the iPhone 8 have been contradictory so far; however some analysts believe the iPhone 8 is happening. For instance Jankowski states her prediction: “Apple usually explores multiple designs in parallel. However, with only four months left until launch, we believe Apple has now locked down the design.”
The upcoming 10th anniversary edition of the iPhone is expected to pack completely new hardware and feature a revamped design, which will push the price up.
The upgrades include a 5.8-inch OLED screen with bezel-less curved display, similar to what we saw on the Galaxy S8. Besides, she said, we can also expect a faster A11 processor with a home button and fingerprint scanner integrated into the phone’s display.
