Apple’s latest smartphones, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus, will be available in the Indian market on October 17. Both phones launched in the US and 9 more countries on September 19; the first weekend sales were reported to be more than 10 million devices.
The company is rolling out the new phones aggressively in all the markets it sells the phone as it aims to make it available in 115 countries by the end of the year. After some regulatory delays the phones will also go on sale in China on the same day as the Indian launch.
Both phones will be available in silver, grey and gold and in three storage capacities. iPhone 6 16GB is priced at Rs 53,500, 64GB is priced at Rs 62,500 and the 128GB version will sell for Rs 71,500. iPhone 6 features 4.7 inch screen with a resolution of 1334×750 pixels.
iPhone 6 plus is the biggest phone Apple has ever introduced and features 5.5 inch screen with full 1080p resolution. iPhone 6 plus 16 GB will sell for Rs 62,500, 64 GB version is priced at Rs 71,500 and 128 GB will sell for Rs 80,500.
Online retailers like Flipkart and local authorised re-sellers have already begun taking pre-orders for the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus in India.
The phones are expected to be available in limited quantity and there’s high possibility of these devices selling out on launch day. Apple is facing unprecedented demand and their supply chain is trying its best to cope up with the demand. iPhone 6 plus demand is more than what the company had expected and it is in the process of ramping up its production.
The bigger iPhone is expected to be more popular in the Indian market as Samsung has dominated this segment with its phablet devices.
