Goldman Sachs has issued a research note predicting that flagship next generation iPhone will cost $1,000. As rumored, Goldman Sachs believes Apple will launch three new iPhones in September.

"We expect the iPhone 8 to have 128GB and 256GB models priced at $999 and 1,099 respectively," analyst Simona Jankowski.

Goldman predicts:
● iPhone 8 — $999 (£775)
● iPhone 7s Plus — $769 (£596)
● iPhone 7s — $649 (£503)

Jankowski believes that Apple has now locked down the design of its new smartphone.

"Apple usually explores multiple designs in parallel. However, with only 4 months left until
launch, we believe Apple has now locked down the design."

Here's the features Goldman expects:
● 5.8"OLED screen (adds $35)
● No bezel, all screen
● 3D sensing (adds $20)
● Better, faster NAND/DRAM memory (adds $16 to $29)
● Capacity starting at 128GB
● A11 processor
● No home button
● Biometric authentication

Recent reports suggest that Apple suppliers may have solved component yield issues and that production is on schedule for a September unveiling and October launch.

iPhone still charges $649 for base model as they have for a long time it's just they added plus model and yes that did go up by $20 but yes apple is expensive but they have always been but this OMG iPhone 8 will cost $1000 is expected if they make a 3rd higher end model but uh I paid $921 for 128 gb iPhone 7 plus so just kinda hoping if they do go this route it's only a 256gb model since why bother with the 128 it costs minimal but adds value to the extra cost .

Everything goes up, it's economics. I have had every iPhone released and have no problem with this price prediction for the iPhone 8. You either love Apple or you're a droid.

Everything doesn't go up. Apple adds a feature and says we need to raise the price. Samsung and other phone companies add features and keeps the price the same. Apple does it cause they know their sheeps will pay anything. And before people talk smack they need to be more realistic and know that the samsung stats are better than apple. I'm an apple fan for life but if you really know about specs and not just a apple bandwagon user, you know that Samsung specks are way better than iPhone.

Supply and demand! If no one wants the iPhone, they won't be able to sell something many at a high price. The fact is that people still pay for it because they see the value. A Samsung phone loses value way way faster, even with all the so-called high end specs.
