Cheaper flagships, but not the budget.
Leading analysts TrendForce called the most probable cost “budget” iPhone 9 with a 6.1-inch LCD display. The smartphone will actually be cheaper than the flagships of Apple, but frankly the budget will not appear. The basic version of the iPhone 9 will be sold at a price of $699.
In TrendForce said that $699 is the most probable price a 6.1-inch iPhone 9. However, depending on Apple’s plans for pricing the all new iPhone sample 2018, the smartphone may get a price tag of $749 for the basic version with 64 GB of memory. Even with such prices, the iPhone 9 will be cheaper than the flagship iPhone 11 and 11 Plus iPhone.
According to analysts, Apple considers it necessary to adjust prices for the new iPhone, compared with last year. The only way the company can achieve increased sales and increased profits.
If the forecast TrendForce to be true, in Russia the iPhone 9 will have the following prices:
- iPhone 9 64 GB — 55 920 rubles.
- iPhone 9 256-GB — 63 920 rubles.
Note that prices include taxes and other costs to Apple.
Presentation of the new iPhone will be held in the first half of September, probably on September 12.
