Piper Jaffray’s Gene Munster on Tuesday raised his Apple price target to $120 from $105 and offered clients a preview of the media event the company has scheduled for next Tuesday. His version differs in several respects from conventional wisdom in the business press.
Munster expects to see:
- An iPhone 6 with a larger screen (4.7-inch), faster (A8) chip, better battery life, more RAM and an improved camera
- An iPhone 6L with an even bigger screen (5.5 inch) to compete with the Samsung Galaxy Note
- A hard sapphire screen on the top-of-the-line 64-GB iPhone 6L
- A NFC (near field communications) chip in both phones and some way of showing it off
- Good (70% ) chance Apple will unveil a “payment feature,” but not necessarily a full-fledged “payment platform”
- 50% chance Apple will introduce a watch next week. (Most tech reporters are echoing re/Code’s prediction that a “wearable” will be unveiled a week from today, but won’t ship until next year.
