Simona Jankowski, an Analyst at Goldman Sachs is among the first to share price estimates for the upcoming iPhone 8.

In a research note to investors, Jankowski expects the iPhone 8 to be priced at US$999 (~RM4,330) for the 128GB variant and US$1,099 (~RM4,764) for the 256GB variant. In comparison, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus start from RM3,199 and RM3,799 respectively. Jankowski also reiterates that the iPhone 8 will come with a 5.8-inch OLED display, 3D sensors and augmented reality technologies. 

Fast Company shared in February that the iPhone 8 could cost at least US$1,000. Apple is rumored to be launching three iPhone models this year and they are said to hit retail shelves in October.
