iPhone 6 prices for all models leaked


Blogger TK Tech News has gotten a hold of a snapshot of what the upcoming iPhone models might cost. The photo comes all the way from Hong Kong, so, assuming it is accurate, the final pricing may be slightly different, due to currency conversions, taxes, and whatnot.

The photo shows two columns of prices – one for the 4.7" model and one for the 5.5" model. Both iPhone 6 variants will have 3 different internal storage tiers – 16, 32, and 64 GB – same as before. It seems that an earlier rumor that Apple may add a 128 GB device to the roster is yet to be confirmed, if at all.

These prices are in HKD, and converting them to USD gives us the following numbers:


iPhone 616 GB32 GB64 GB
4.7"6,663 HKD = $859,707,671 HKD = $989,758,679 HKD = $1119,82
5.5"7,923 HKD = $1022,288,931 HKD = $1152,349,687 HKD = $1249,88

Looking at the HK Apple store page and converting the iPhone 5S price tags to USD, we can see that the current smartphone goes for around between $70 and $80 more in Hong Kong, depending on the tier. Keeping that in mind, we can guesstimate prices for the iPhone 6 to be at:


iPhone 616 GB32 GB64 GB
4.7"$799$899$999
5.5"$949$1049$1149


Of course, we are talking retail prices here – without contract. From these numbers, we can see that the 5.5" iPhone 6 will be quite the premium device, the 16 GB model starting at ~$50 above an 11" MacBook Air, and the top-tier 64 GB one costing ~$150 shy of a bottom-of-the-line 13” Retina MacBook Pro. Or, to put things in perspective, a 4G-capable iPad Air with 128 GB of storage currently costs $929.





If these prices are true, Apple seems really optimistic about the demand for the new, large screen iPhones. What do you make of these numbers?

I think it'll cost 699$/16GB for the 4.7" model and 799$/16GB for 5.5" model.

this, mostly because foreign currency conversions for phones seem to be mostly made up numbers

I think they already accounted for that seeing as how it was converting to 850. That plus apple wouldn't just up it by 50, that is not gougy enough, it would minimum be 100 so their 150 increase seems plausible.

NO THANKS!!

At 799, people will buy. But apple will end up with overestimated demand.

I am suddenly reminded of E3 2006 where Sony unveiled the PS3 for $600 and everyone just laughed.

yeah......just posted link above if curious about the pricing of the various ones...and sad part is that I don't think the actual price they pay for making the phone has become that much more expensive....

Yeah, I was already checking that Link out. Thanks. Though it doesn't have the launch MSRP for each device though. Still good information.

I love Apple and all, but there is no possible way I'm going to pay a grand for a smartphone when Apple sales their MacBook Airs for the same damn price. I understand Apple's premium price, but I've never understood why smartphones, in general, carry such a heavy price. In the past, the iPhone components have been said to total just under $200. Sell the phone for even $600 and you still make money. The Nexus 5 is where smartphones should be priced, but I imagine Google isn't concerned on making a profit on those.

Well, when you think about it. You take your phone everywhere with you. It's your personal connection to the digital world. For many people (myself included) it has replaced many functions of the traditional PC. So there is reason why they would charge so much for it. Though when your competition is selling their product at around half the price and is arguably more feature rich, one has to wonder how long they can expect to gouge the consumer without it having a considerable negative impact on sales.

I definitely understand phones replacing important things in our lives. But it gets to the point where you literally can't buy an iPhone out of pocket unless you're willing to go broke for it. If I lost my iPhone 5, I'd have to replace it with a Nexus 5. Great news for Google, terrible for their competitor. And what happens to these prices when more cellphone companies stop subsidizing phones? Even paying it off over the course of 2 years gets kind of expensive.

People who buy iPhones set the price. I don't intend to trash Apple, but the iPhone in all honesty sees very minimal hardware upgrades each year. Battery, RAM, display, storage shouldn't cost that much compared to previous years because those components see little to no change, heck, prices may have even dropped for a few of the components. And every year Apple charges more and more and people will still buy the phone. If sales were to actually drop then that would force Apple to reconsider their pricing structure, but until that happens, expect the price to continue to climb. Simple economics Demand goes up, so does the price, demand goes down you can expect the price to follow.

This. Seriously, if people keep lining up to be gouged, why not gouge them. Apple's investors are driving them to reach unrealistic margains, but they go for them anyway. And with their phones, it's been paying off. There are plenty of excellent phone choices out there so if people still want to be gouiged by apple, who's to stop them, it's their choice and they don't feel like they are being gouged.

You don't understand the reason behind Nexus 5 pricing. Google does not make money from selling devices, but advertising which is not the case with Apple.

Well how do you explain Windows Phone pricing then? Ad dollars aren't the focus there.
