The Goldman Sachs analyst, Simone Jankowski believes that the next generation iPhone will have a noticeable rise in prices, with a starting from $ 1,000.

If we could paraphrase the title of a film to match the launch of the iPhone 8, we could choose ” Generate $ 1000 “.

That’s how much it might cost, according to forecasts, iPhone 8 128GB retails for $ 999. The 256 GB version instead will rise to $ 1,099.

In comparison to current models with iPhone 7 128GB which costs in the US, $ 749 it means that the cheaper version of the iPhone 8 will cost 25% more.

If this increase is confirme, this would mean that we – with the same yardstick – iPhone 8 128 GB would cost about 1130 euro.

Speaking of numbers, even hypothetical, without being sure of what’s new seems premature.

But to hear the analyst, Apple’s future flagship device will have all the features to justify such an outlay, starting from 5.8-inch OLED display and the 3D sensor for facial recognition.

All features that are not included in the iPhone 7s Plus and 7s.

The analyst at Goldman Sachs, keeping the professional role, not flustered by the selling price because the launch of the new device will result in a surge in the value of company shares.

Apple, we have seen, is the first company to have reached a value of $ 800 billion and has committed to meeting the legendary milestone of a trillion  dollars.

A curiosity: 8 iPhone is not the first product sold by Apple at a record price linked to a special edition.

The smartphone of September celebrates 10 years since Steve Jobs presented.

In 1997 Apple launched the ” Twentieth Anniversary Mac “, a special edition of a computer that is celebrated, mistakenly, the 20 years of the Mac but instead to make twenty years Apple was founded in 1977.

That Mac was sold at $ 9000 making it one of the most expensive ever sold by Apple Computer.
