How much will the iPhone 6 cost? It could start at $249

iPhone6displays-640x551

If you’re expecting the upcoming 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and 5.5-inch iPhone 6L to cost the same as an iPhone 5s, think again. That extra display could be coming at a $50 premium, according to a new report.

Citing sources close to Spanish cellular provider Telefonica, Spanish blog Movilzona says the the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 will cost 750 euros and the iPhone 6L will go for up to 950 euros. Currently an iPhone 5s starts at 699 euros.

If that price premium stays true on this side of the pond, that means the 16GB iPhone 6 could cost $699 off-contract, or start at $249 with a two-year contract. The 32GB model would then be $349, and the 64GB $449.

Similarly, when the iPhone 6L comes down the pipeline, the Telefonica pricing insinuates that the baseline model would start at $799 off-contract, or around $349 with a two-year contract. In other words, $100 more than the 4.7-inch iPhone 6.

This pricing makes sense to me: The iPhone can’t resist price inflation. But then again, a price leak from a European cellphone carrier doesn’t mean all that much in the grand scheme of things. We’ll know for sure September 9. What do you think?
