iPhone X Successor Will Cost $899 With the iPhone X Plus Expected to Carry a $100 Premium
Where the iPhone X carries a ridiculous price of $999, the iPhone X successor will offer a much better proposition to those who are looking to upgrade this year. The succeeding model is expected to cost $899, whereas the 6.5-inch iPhone X Plus will carry just a $100 premium.
In no way are these devices looking to feature a price/performance element, but they will sport slightly better internals and the original iPhone X’s price tag will be reduced even further, leading to potentially better sales in the future.
Apple Introducing $100 Price Cut to Bring iPhone X Plus Into the $999 Price Tag Range – Is It Still Too Expensive?
According to RBC, the $100 price cut is going to be introduced in September later this year in order to accommodate the iPhone X Plus, which is going to be the largest iPhone model ever produced. However, do not let its massive 6.5-inch screen size fool you as sources close to the matter have stated that the flagship is going to be as big as the iPhone 8 Plus.
The increased size will mean that we could be seeing the biggest battery in an iPhone to date, but the $999 price might bring a lot of concern to the average consumer, looking at the fate of the iPhone X. As for the 6.1-inch iPhone with LCD, it is expected to start at $700+ and could get the same edge-to-edge glass.

Since it will feature better internals than the 2017 iPhone lineup, it will exude a more value proposition, looking at the prices of iPhones these days. However, Apple should not get carried away because analysts are suggesting that the tech giant might run into deeper trouble if it is not able to keep a lid on the pricing.
Pricing rumors are still to be taken with a pinch of salt so we’ll continue to update you on the latest. Do you think the $999 price of the iPhone X Plus will be a better choice when it is officially launched? Tell us down in the comments.
