Apple’s radical new iPhone may have a $1,000 cost tag.
Or perhaps an a great deal larger cost tag. Apple’s 2017 premium iPhone – which some Wall Street analysts are calling the “iPhone X” with “X” designating the tenth anniversary from the iPhone – might be costing over $1,000.
That argument is made now by Fast Company. Actually, that situation – as quickly Company highlights – isn’t very difficult to make, thinking about the very best-of-the-line iPhone 7 Plus today, with 256GB of storage, includes a retail cost of $969.
What To Anticipate WITH APPLE’S 2017 iPHONE ‘X’
However the $1,000-plus cost would cement, if accurate, an upward trend in Iphone prices. If, for instance, the more costly 2017 iPhone falls somewhere within the $1,000 to $1,200 range, that will place it squarely in MacBook Air territory. Apple’s popular MacBook line starts at $999.
“The OLED display will certainly be very costly,” Daniel Matte, an analyst with market investigator Canalys, told Fox News within an email. Matte is talking about the centerpiece from the rumored premium iPhone, a natural light-emitting diode (OLED) display. That display technology allows Apple to provide a curved display, similar to Samsung’s Universe S7 Edge.
“The limited quantities available will certainly require some models to stay with LCDs,” he added, and therefore not every new 2017 iPhones is going to be priced within the stratosphere. New iPhones with increased conventional LCDs (live view screen displays – which Apple uses now) will also be expected to be shown and become less expensive than the premium iPhone.

“Apple will most likely follow the current LCD models and introduce a couple of new premium flagship iPhones with OLED displays,” Raymond Soneira, president of DisplayMate Technologies, told Fox News a week ago.
Speculate it’s so early – using the 2017 premium iPhone not due until summer time in the earliest and much more likely within the fall – it’s entirely possible that Apple doesn’t know exactly what the exact cost is going to be yet.
A resource acquainted with activity within the “supply chain” of manufacturers, which build components for that iPhone, informs Fox News that Apple is probably testing early prototype versions of future iPhones right now. Which Apple is moving rapidly to secure as numerous OLED displays as you possibly can.

Prices aside, the iPhone X – rumored to possess a 5.8-inch display when compared to current 7 Plus’ 5.5-incher – ought to be a stunner.
“With a curved screen OLED, the iPhone display will likely be bezel and border liberated to the outdoors edges, and fill any many of the entire front view edge-to-edge, with rumors predicting the home button, fingerprint sensor, ambient light and closeness sensors is going to be incorporated inside the display,” DisplayMate’s Soneira stated.
Brand new iPhone models will also be slated in the future with wireless charging, based on reports.
