Earlier this month, a report suggested Apple will launch the 8GB iPhone 5C in India as a budget offering. The company also started the good old iPhone 4 in the region a few months back, but this version could kick off better.
If you’re based in India, you be glad to know that Apple has started selling the iPhone 5C in India for INR 37,500 (almost $640). But, it’s not cheap, it’s as pricey as it can get since the 16GB version of the handset currently retails for Rs. 41,500.
By launching the 8GB iPhone 5C in India, it felt as if Apple wanted to attract customers looking for a mid-range handset, but it turns out it may not help after all. Several big retailers in India are already selling the iPhone 5C for a similar price tag as the 8GB version, so why would any go for it when they can get more storage for a similar price tag.
I’m assuming we might see a price drop from Apple, and the thing may get a slightly lower price tag, which is more justifiable. Plus, you could get better handsets from other manufacturers for a similar price tag, so it will be interesting to see how Apple performs with the newly launched iPhone 5C.
