Apple has a dedicated fan base in India as well as around the world. Customers line up in long queues on the day of launch to be among the first to purchase the latest iPhones, regardless of the cost. When iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus will be released in India on Friday, 16 October, they are sure to attract a lot of attention. However, a new analysis shows iPhone 6s price in India is the highest in the world, placing the base model close to $1,000, CNET reports.
In India, the 16GB variant of iPhone 6s smartphone is priced at Rs 62,000 and costs Rs 10,000 extra to upgrade. As for iPhone 6s Plus, the base price is set at Rs 72,000 and goes up to Rs 92,000 for the 128GB model.
With the launch of new models, prices of the older variants tend to drop. The trend will likely continue this week for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. The official pricing at the Apple Store are intact as of now, but retailers are getting a head start in giving discounts on 2015 iPhones.
Amazon India is offering the praise-worthy iPhone 6 16GB (Gold) variant for Rs 36,999. If you wish to change the colour, space grey will cost you Rs 37,999 and the silver iPhone 6 will cost Rs 43,730. If you are looking to buy higher storage variants, the 64GB iPhone 6 is priced at Rs 45,999 and the 128GB model costs Rs 61,500.
A similar deal on iPhone 6 is offered on Snapdeal, which puts the price of the 16GB model at Rs 36,999. Comparatively, the silver iPhone 6 costs lower on Snapdeal than Amazon, at Rs 41,499. Additionally, the retailer is dealing several offers such as up to 10 percent cash back on select cards, exchange of old devices and at least Rs 500 off on online purchase.
These discounts on iPhone 6 models will grab a lot of attention from potential buyers, especially those who think iPhone 6s is over-priced.
Sadly, there are no discounts offered on iPhone 6 by Flipkart but we are hoping to see some eye-catching deals during the Big Billion Days sale.
Amazon will also commence its Great Indian Festive sale on 13 October and run through 17 October. It remains to be seen if the prices will dip further. There is no saying how long these prices will last, so if you think the deal is worthy, go for it.
