The iPhone X is undoubtedly the most-anticipated smartphone of 2017. The device that is bound to revolutionise the future of smartphones has opened for pre-orders in India and will eventually go on sale on November 3.
Apple's first all-screen iPhone will start at Rs 89,000 for the base 64GB model with the top-of-the-line 256GB version costing all the way up to Rs 1,02,000. We know the prices are very high, but we are talking about Apple's 'latest' and 'greatest' here. If that doesn't convince you, there are plenty of introductory offers on the iPhone X which might cheer you up. Take a look.
