Price details of the yet-to-be released Apple iPhone 6 series smartphones have reportedly surfaced online ahead of the 9 September launch event.
A leaked Apple promotional flyer twirling in Hong Kong (now available with TK Tech News) has revealed that the upcoming iPhone 6 series smartphones' prices would be equivalent to a MacBook.
Apple iPhone 6 (4.7-inch) 16GB, 32GB and 64GB models would cost HKD 6,663 (around $860/€660/₹51,800), HKD 7,671(around $990/€761/₹59,600) and HKD 8,679 (around $1,120/€860/₹67,450), respectively, according to the listing.
On the other hand, the 5.5-inch iPhone 6L – 16GB, 32GB and 63GB variants would come with a whopping price-tag of HKD 7,923 (around $1,022/€785/₹61,560), HKD 8,931(around $1,152/€885/₹69,400) and HKD 9,687 (around $1,250/€960/₹75,260), respectively.
Though the prices listed are too expensive and there is no credible proof to validate the report, it's still believable because all the previous iPhone devices used to be priced in these ranges and to consider the fact that this time, display sizes of iPhone models have been increased, the price-tag of the devices seem to fit the bill.
Local public have evinced huge interest in the upcoming iPhone 6. Despite not knowing the actual price of the devices, more than 56,000 prospective consumers (China Mobile subscribers) have registered for buying Apple's new iPhones and the number is still swelling, according to a report (courtesy, Tech Sina) from China.
As of now, Apple is yet to respond to the leaked flyer twirling the Internet. Until the company clears the air over the speculations, this report will remain as pure speculations only.
Both iPhone 6 (4.7-inch) and iPhone 6L (aka iPhone Air) are expected to ship with the new-generation 64-bit architecture Apple A8 processor, 1GB RAM, Touch ID finger-print sensor, 8.0-megapixel camera with f2.2 aperture (with the possibility of featuring OIS: Optical Image Stabilizations), NFC, and slightly larger battery (50-70% more watts power to feed energy sapping iPhone 6L's large screen).
