Recently there was information that the new smartphone Apple, which will be presented in autumn this year, may set a record price. Insiders indicate that the price of the anniversary model will start with $1000.
It is expected that a new smartphone with a 5.8-inch OLED display will be called the “iPhone 8”, but there is an opinion that Apple could be named in honor of the tenth anniversary of “iPhone X”. Impending new will stand out stylish and coherent design and will receive a glass shell.
Analysts believe that if the developers in Cupertino will realize all the innovative features reported by the sources, Apple will have no problem with the demand for “eight”.
In reality, how critical if the price of the iPhone 8 will exceed $1000? If users are willing to pay for a flagship Apple the money, it doesn’t matter, it costs $950 or $1100. Moreover, the majority of users do not update the smartphone within a few years.
Buyers are willing to pay more for the iPhone 8, because even now expensive versions are more popular. For example, the iPhone 7 Plus, which costs $100 more, sold better than more affordable iPhone 7. In addition, iPhones are often bought in installments, and the “extra” $200, which the company asked for a new module, almost not be felt, as the monthly payments will increase by approximately $8 in two years.
On the other hand for someone a price tag of $1000 can be a serious obstacle, because for this money you can buy many other things, the same 13-inch MacBook Air. In addition, an important psychological barrier for buyers that do not want to pay for a mobile device too much.
As expected, the iPhone 8 will cost more because of the higher cost. The device will be equipped with expensive components, including a OLED screen “edge to edge” glass housing, 50% more capacious battery, new design multilayer motherboard.
One of the unique innovations in the iPhone 8 should be the 3D perception of the world developed by Apple in conjunction with the company Lumentum. The device will be able to recognize faces of users with a 3D scanner.
Those wishing to purchase a fall iPhone 8 the Russians will have to part with quite a substantial amount of money. The starting price of the smartphone is that not everyone will be able to buy a new product. In our country the minimum price tag will be from 75 000 to 80 000 rubles.
