Business Insider released a new report from USB Financial Analysis, a report focused on the price of the iPhone 8, saying it would start at $ 870.
According to the report, the new phone will be available storage space 64 GB and the price of 870 USD, with the sale of 256 GB for $ 1070 USD, which is the most expensive option in the history of Apple’s phones.
The company relies on the cost calculation on the price of internal components of the phone, after communicating with some of the suppliers that Apple cooperates with them to produce sensors, the screen, and some other components.
The company also raised its Apple price forecast from $ 165 to $ 170, saying it expected new phones to contribute 45 percent of Apple’s total sales.
Earlier, Goldman Sachs analysts predicted that new phone prices would start at $ 999, with at least 128 GB. UBS believes that the capacity will start from 64 GB, which explains the initial price difference between the two companies.
Recently, on the Chinese Web, images of industrial designs for Apple’s new phones were unveiled, which will be unveiled in September 2017. The templates match the rumors of three phones: iPhone 8, iPhone 7s and 7s Plus.
Economic Daily News said the cost of producing the 3D touch feature in the OLED screens to be used on iPhone 8 is 150 percent higher than the iPhone 6s and beyond.
