This year’s new iPhone X might cost more than $1,000 | BGR

According to rumblings from the rumor mill, Apple’s 2018 iPhone lineup will consist of three new devices. On the low-end, Apple will release a 6.1-inch device with an edgeless LCD display. Above that, Apple will reportedly release a next-gen iPhone X along with a iPhone X Plus with a 6.5 inch OLED display. While analysts seem to be of the mind that the aforementioned 6.1-inch iPhone will be competitively priced, we’ve seen some conflicting reports regarding the second iteration of the 5.8-inch iPhone X.

While most analysts anticipate that the iPhone X will retain its $1,000 price point or even be priced in the $900 range, a new investor note from UBS analysts Steven Milunovich and Benjamin Wilson (via Business Insider) posits a different theory. Specifically, both analysts claim that Apple might actually raise the entry price on the iPhone X this year from $1,000 to $1,100.

While nothing regarding iPhone pricing is ever official until Apple executives trot out on stage and make an announcement, the notion that Apple’s second-gen iPhone X might be priced at $1,100, while perhaps hard to believe, is not implausible.
