Marking Apple’s 10th anniversary is the release of the iPhone X, which is expected to be the company’s biggest smartphone release in years. Apple phone’s brand lovers have so much anticipation and hype in the launch of the new iPhone X.
According to Apple official website, iPhone X has 2 choices of storage, 64GB and 256GB, which are respectively $999 and $1149. These high prices place the 2017 iPhone X device as the most expensive smartphone produced by Apple yet. The upcoming iPhone X is expected to be avaiable in Oct 27, 2017.
Factors for High iPhone X Price
Factors like the cutting edge-to-edge OLED display, camera improvements, new biometric features and the wireless charging are believed to inflate the price since the production cost will increase per unit thus forcing Apple to need to charge more. The 3D Touch components which are in development from scratch, for example, are said to be 150 percent higher than those used in the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. The curved OLED display screens which are said will cost Apple twice as much as the LCD screens used on current iPhone are also hard to come by in the quantities needed to sustain the iPhone X supply to meet the potential demand. This factor alone will lead to Apple rising prices on OLED screen device models since it knows that prices rise when the demand is high and supply constrained.
Analysts just guess on the iPhone pricing based on revolving reports and stories of radical redesigning of the new devices in development. However, there could be some truth behind the pricing predictions of the iPhone X, given the abundance of rumors, some of which are from reliable and trusted sources. The iPhone X will certainly be more expensive than the current units in the market, so you should start saving up. Still, will it cost over a grand? That will depend on which storage size you choose. The 256GB model of the iPhone 7 Plus in the market is already at $969, and this should be a clear enough hint that a top of the line iPhone X, is not ridiculous selling for more than $1149. On the other hand, Apple might need to stay competitive for the 64GB model and price it at $999, which would still safeguard the company’s famously high margins.
Buy The New iPhone X or Still Keep Your Old iPhone?
Apple is starting their iPhone X pricing at $999 or more, which is substantially higher and almost double the current iPhone 7 prices, will leave many contemplating on whether to upgrade or just settle with the existing units.
Faster performance being one of the qualities of the iPhone X and the OLED display will not be enough to entice the non-faithful and old iPhone models users as there are ways of improving the old phone’s performance.
