The price of the iPhone 12 could be $ 50 more expensive than that of the iPhone 11 when it was released.
According to several sources, Apple does not offer wired headphones or a charger in the boxes of its future smartphones. By doing so, the Californian firm would save money which would prevent it from increasing the price of its smartphones despite the increase in component costs. However, according to analyst Jeff Pu, the price of the iPhone 12 would be higher than that of the iPhone 11. There would therefore be a price increase, contrary to what other rumors had.
The analyst told MacRumors that he estimated that the iPhone 12 will cost $ 50 more than the iPhone 11 when it is released, or $ 749 against $ 699. An increase that will be justified by the 5G compatibility of the phone and the integration of an OLED and not LCD screen, as was the case on the entry-level model of the iPhone 11.
He also believes that this price increase should not be difficult to get through to consumers, because the fact that the phone is compatible with 5G will justify this increase of $ 50. However, the lack of headphones and charger in the cases as rumored could be the subject of much criticism from consumers.
The price increase should obviously impact all versions of the iPhone which, according to rumor, will be 4 in number.
At this point, it is still only a prediction. Nothing is official. Not long ago, leaker Jon Prosser assured that the iPhone 12 would be sold for $ 649. See you next September to find out the official prices for 2020 smartphones.
