Apple iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus will be available in Grey, Silver and Gold colours with 64 GB or 256 GB onboard flash storage. But here is an offer through which you can buy iPhone 8 at an "effective price" of just Rs 18,778. The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus are launching in India on Friday and will retail at a starting price of Rs 64,000 and Rs 73,000, respectively.
If you want the iPhone X, wait six weeks and buy it. The fact it just happened to brand new iPhone 8 units is obviously a red flag for Apple, which will investigate the incidents. Previous years have seen the iPhone's back made of aluminum, but Apple chose to include wireless charging in the iPhone 8 and glass makes that possible.
Flipkart is also having a sale of the new iPhones however it's not inclusive of the Jio buyback deal. Reliance Digital is offering a buyback offer under which you are eligible for "70% of the original purchase price as buyback amount on return of the device after a year". It should be noted that there are separate iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus listings on the e-commerce site, one with the Jio buyback scheme and the other without.
It may seem hard to believe that there's so much interest in the iPhone X. After all, the phone is ludicrously expensive at £999, with the most costly model priced at £1,149. Jio has also launched a new plan exclusively for iPhone models, which is valued at Rs. 799 with 90GB of data. The plan has a validity of 28 days for prepaid users and until bill cycle for postapid users. They are also offering no-cost EMI on major debit and credit cards. The company will also launch exclusive tariff plan for new Apple devices.
In addition, customers will get Rs 10,000 cashback on the day of the launch, when they use a Citibank Credit Card to purchase the phone. This offer, however, stands only till 5:59 pm today.
Three senior industry executives, who requested anonymity, said Apple was asking its exclusive stores in India - the franchisee-run Apple Premium Resellers - to stock a minimum number of handsets to push sales from the stores.
The iPhone 8 offers a 4.7-inch LCD display while the iPhone 8 Plus offers a 5.5-inch one. The two smartphones run on iOS 11 out-of-the-box and are powered by A11 Bionic processor. A new, second-generation performance controller can harness all six cores simultaneously, delivering up to 70 percent greater performance for multi-threaded workloads, giving customers more power while providing the same great battery life.
