Rumors pointed weeks ago that the iPhone 8, or iPhone X or iPhone Edition – in any case, the iPhone that will come out in September to commemorate the tenth launch of the first iPhone – would be around 1000 euros , becoming the most expensive smartphone of all The times seem not to be very misleading, judging by the latest news.
Goldman Sachs analyst Simona Jankowski has developed an investigation in which she has dared to specify much more in terms of prices. According to her, the iPhone 8 will be offered in 128GB and 256GB versions, priced at $ 999 and $ 1,099, respectively. To date, the most expensive iPhone was the iPhone 7 Plus 256GB that can be purchased for $ 969.
In addition, the analyst also corroborates many of the rumours that we have been scrounging in recent months: OLED display, 3D sensor, augmented reality technology, borderless screen … Many and very fascinating innovations that will directly affect the price.
As a result of this jump in sales prices, Jankowski predicts that this rise will be accompanied by a rise in Apple shares and not only will not hurt their sales but increase them. Literally, these are the reasons he alludes to:
WE BELIEVE THE HIGH DEMAND FOR LARGER FORM FACTORS (5.8 INCHES) COUPLED WITH NEW FEATURES THAT ARE NOT AVAILABLE ON THE SMALLER IPHONE.
Surprisingly, a few weeks ago another analyst reduced these sales prices of the iPhone 8 to 850-900 dollars, but the bottom line is the ability that Apple will offer to be able to determine the price. Of course, it does not make sense already a 16GB iPhone, but from there to go to the 128-256GB is an exaggeration.
