Although there are certain conditions that lead to higher prices, the rising cost of triumph for many phones in 2019. Costly. New technologies and designs, such as folding screens and 5G speeds, are higher prices, but they are also brand positioning to create a high-end segment that will help each sales more profitable.

We have seen a constant escalation of OnePlus, the price of which is rising every time a new model arrives. OnePlus is currently tracking two variants a year: OnePlus 6T was launched in 2018.
The rumors of OnePlus 7 about $ 569 seem to be an insignificant blow, especially as it will still cost almost half the $ 1,000 phone price. Nevertheless, the cost of ownership for you is increasing.
"Because of the rapid increase in smartphone dependency in the short term, there has also been a growing need for quality and components across the industry to meet high performance requirements," OnePlus spokesman said last August. said
According to LG, Key [pricing] factors include the cost of components, competitors' pricing, carrier incentives, tariffs, etc., ”he said. "The fact is that these costs are increasing, so we are forced to follow suit."
CNET has achieved all the manufacturers mentioned in this story.
Interestingly, Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL cost the same as Pixel and Pixel XL. However, Google raised Pixel 3 price by 23 percent, but did not add a second camera on the back and minimally changed the design. Google raised the price to match competition.
But now the phones are more expensive, right?
Phones, like all electronics, consist of parts from different suppliers, and if the price of these parts rises, it is a truly reliable phone price
Demand for more storage over the last few years has led to higher prices, increased memory costs and has encouraged suppliers to invest in more factories to meet demand, according to Wood.
Adding more sophisticated cameras, such as the iPhone XS 3D depth front camera – or more lenses such as the Galaxy S10 and Huawei Mate 20 Pro three rear shooters or " The Nokia 9 PureView five rear cameras also cost more. Also use materials such as curved screens glass or ceramics for phone support, or a solid space aluminum frame.
You can bet that the first phone debut diamond glass screen or new, stain resistant Vibrant Satin Corning Gorilla Glass will not be cheap. It is also expensive for Samsung to create a manufacturing process for items used by Galaxy Fold, such as the Infinity Flex screen
However, while the price of all these components, called "Material Account" or "BOM", can partly explain why high-end phones cost more each year, many experts say:
"I definitely agree that some of the cost elements are due to the components and production process … but not to that size," Wood said.
agrees with creative strategies analyst Carolina Milanesi.
"Such phones are really more than ever," she said. "BOM is really growing on these devices, but I think the brands are applying an additional margin to their model products because they are status symbols."
5G and Folding
Apple and Samsung battled sales whose sales stagnated In 2018, however, Apple did not stop it particularly profitable.
2018 August. it has become a trillion-dollar company due to large sales margins on the iPhone, even when it surrendered to third place for Huawei . Whether interest rates continue to cool or crash with 5G and folding phones, industry observers are following closely in 2019.
However, the emergence of 5G and folding phone designs is likely to give the phone manufacturers more licenses to support the costs. 5G phones need a whole new technology, and phones have to be adapted to work with one carrier. This is at least until the 5G networks actually stop working. In the first 5G phone days, prices could increase by $ 19459004 to $ 200 or $ 300 per phone OnePlus reported by CNET in 2018 December.

Galaxy S10 Plus is All Phone
We are still waiting for pricing in many of the 5G phones published so far
"If you generate enough value [in the phone]consumers will be ready to pay," said Justin Denison, Samsung's Mobile Cellphone last December, when " Samsung first discussed its 5G phone
Even higher costs for folding phone designs, including Galaxy Fold, Mate X and rumored folding Motorola Razr for $ 1,500. These phones will have folding plastic screens that will open up to a larger screen, such as a Tablet PC, but plug into a device with the same height and width as today's phones (though thicker).
Compared to these $ 1,500 and $ 2000 devices, it seems that the cost of $ 4,000 for a $ 1,000 phone is typical. However, the highest fungus costs can still lead to more expensive 4G phones in 2019, with no 5G radio and folding screens. Today's Galaxy S10, iPhone XS, and Huawei Mate 20 Pro are heavily priced, while other players have a reason to follow suit. Even midtier models can raise their price tags until the devices cost less.
For example, OnePlus 6T for $ 549 still costs almost half of Galaxy S10 Plus and iPhone XS devices, many of which are easily found to swallow a "cheap" phone with a big one
According to Wood, Analyst it all started when Apple announced the $ 1000 iPhone X. "This has given breathing space to all other manufacturers and I can imagine that there was some pleasure in the corridors of Samsung and Huawei and others."
Removing the price cap has another consequence. Apple and Samsung introduced the iPhone XR and Galaxy S10E as $ 750 palette cleaners for the iPhone XS ($ 1000) and Galaxy S10 for starting prices ($ 900). In comparison, $ 750 seems to be just a bargain. Reducing the cost of entry into an affordable model requires playing the iPhone or the Galaxy family with conscious buyers.
Middle telephones are still affordable but may be non-immune
Though folding and 5G phones are blowing the buyers' price expectations out of the water, this does not mean that the price of each phone will rise at such sharp rates
We continue to see great competition The Motorola Moto G7 and E5 families are distinguished by excellent budget phones. Yes, prices are rising as a percentage of Moto G6 to G7, but as the total price is still around $ 300, Motorola's move is much less drastic than high. Even at the same higher end, the $ 1,000 "premium phone" can still cost hundreds less than the cutting-edge 5G device, and possibly half the folding phone
Other looking Wallet viewer brands are the Huawei Honor Mark, Nokia, Xiaomi, Sony, Oppo, and Asus, which help fill the gap around the globe, by silently disabling key, affordable phones for price sensitive customers. They each produce premium quality phones as well as mid-range devices, although not every phone will be available in every market.
So, while the mildest, most powerful device is still locked up to the highest price, there is still a high demand for mid to high end phones for people with a tighter budget or more basic needs.
The $ 1,000 phone sounds too terrible, you may need to find the beauty of a more modest phone or go beyond the sticker shock and admit that the $ 600 model phone days are long for us. In fact, $ 1,000 becomes the new normal way.
