In a new report on Apple’s devices, a Goldman Sachs analyst noted that iPhone 8 prices will start at $ 999, a 128GB storage device with 256GB storage at $ 1099.
CNBC received the new report, in which the company raised its Apple price forecast to $ 170, after forecasting $ 164 in the past. It should be noted that the price of the stock reached 156 dollars at the moment.
According to the company, the iPhone 8 will provide three-dimensional sensors for enhanced reality, and the OLED screen size of 5.8 inches, to repeat expectations of the rest of the companies. It also said Apple would sell 243 million phones in 2018 thanks to the new phone.
The report does not believe that the $ 1000 phone price will be a barrier to users with new features, although the most expensive phone now has a $ 969, the iPhone 7 Plus 256 GB.
Such reports can not be recognized, despite the importance of their issuers. They remain in the category of expectations that rely on different sources, such as some of the companies Apple deals with, or some workers within factories.
CNBC has already published a report by UBS on the price of the new phone as well, saying that the phone will be available at a price cheaper than $ 1,000, reversing rumors that the price will exceed that amount, starting from the sale price of approximately 850 USD.
