According to an article by The New York Times, the new iPhone design, equipped with a nearly borderless OLED screen, will cost “around $999.” The newspaper reports this on the basis of sources who have become acquainted with the device, but are not allowed to say anything officially.
What kind of implementation of the new design customers would get for that money is not stated in the piece. Prices for the same iPhone can vary when different variants are compared. For example, the 32GB iPhone 7 Plus currently costs 909 euros, while the model with 256GB storage costs 1129 euros.
Rumors have been circulating for some time that Apple will also unveil a new, more progressive design in addition to a successor to the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. Almost the entire front is covered by an OLED screen, with a black strip at the top in which there is room for the front camera and speaker. The device would also be able to recognize faces better and faster with the help of an infrared camera for the purpose of unlocking.
Apple is likely to unveil its new devices in September, as it has often done in previous years. On Thursday, it came out that Apple had reported to mobile operators that the unveiling would be held on September 12 this year.
