iPhone 8 to be more expensive than the Galaxy S8+, thinks analyst

74
We know the new iPhone is going to be expensive, we just don't know how expensive... yet. UBS analyst Steven Mulinovich chimed in with a bold prediction, stating that a 64GB base model would start at $850 to $900 – possibly more expensive than the Samsung Galaxy S8+ and other pricy high-enders set to appear in the coming months.

According to Mulinovich, Apple will charge up to $1000 for a 256GB model, while the rumored iPhone 7s and 7s Plus devices will start at $650 and $750, respectively. These prices are not much different than what's currently on offer, with the iPhone 7 starting at $650 and the 256GB iPhone 7 Plus being $950.

Milunovich's predictions are based on information from UBS Asia hardware analyst Arthur Hsieh, who estimates the factory cost of the OLED named iPhone 8 will be $70 to $90 higher than the iPhone 7 Plus, which starts at $769. While the estimate appears realistic, it's not grounded in insider information.
