Apple Launches iPhone 5C 8GB Variant In India
Last fall Apple introduced two new iPhones: iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C, both with 16GB and 32GB variants. Later, in March 2014, Apple introduced iPhone 5C 8GB model to boost sales in five non-US markets: UK, France, Germany, Australia, and China. Next month, as rumored, Apple plans to launch the 8GB iPhone 5C variant in India too.
According to The Times of India:
While the phone’s MRP is Rs 37,500 ($640), Apple is offering a cash discount of Rs 4,000 ($68). This brings down the phone’s price to Rs 33,500 ($572).
Apple is also giving a case worth Rs 2,000 with the phone. However, Apple informs that it’s a limited period offer.
Though the duration of both the offers is unknown, giving a free case is a nice strategy. Also, a cash discount of Rs 4,000 will help further in boosting sales.
Apple iPhone 5C 8GB has a 4-inch Retina display as in iPhone 5 and Apple’s A6 chipset, an 8MP rear camera with flash, and a 1.2MP front-facing camera. The external body is made of polycarbonate shell with five colour options and a glossy finish. Like the previously launched iPhone 5C 16GB and 32GB, the 8GB variant is also compatible with LTE Networks.
