The analyst predicts a rise in the price of the base model at $ 50
While Apple is preparing for the autumn release of a new line of flagship smartphones, more and more information about future updates appears on the network. This time, analyst Jeff Pu shared the price details.
A trimmed kit will not help. iPhone 12 will still be more expensive than the iPhone 11
His report is referenced by the thematic resource MacRumors. According to the source, the price of the base version of the iPhone 12 with a 5.4-inch screen starts at $ 749. That’s $ 50 more than the starting price of the iPhone 11, which is offered for $ 699.
The analyst notes that the increase in cost is primarily due to support for 5G cellular networks and OLED screens in all models of the iPhone 12 series, while the iPhone 11 uses an LCD panel.
Jeff Pu is confident that with 5G support, cost increases will be “accepted by consumers” and “will not affect demand.” However, he believes that the rejection of the headphones and charger in the kit may become a matter of disagreement.
If you continue the logical chain, starting from $ 749 for the base 5.4-inch iPhone 12, then the 6.1-inch iPhone 12 will cost from 799 or 849 dollars.
