Apple Inc on Friday formally launched iPhone 5S and iPhone5C in India with price starting from Rs 41,900.
The company is selling 16 GB iPhone 5C at Rs 41,900 and 32 GB variant at Rs 53,500. iPhone 5S is available at Rs 53,500 (16GB), Rs 63,500 (32 GB) and Rs 71,500 (64 GB). The smarphones can be bought from about 4,000 outlets across the country, Ingram Micro, one of Apple's distributors in India, said.
Meanwhile, Reliance Communications (RCom) on Friday said that consumers can own the 16 GB models of iPhone 5S and 5C by paying Rs 2,999 and Rs 2,599 per month, respectively, for 2 years. The prices include handset cost, unlimited local and STD calls, SMSes, national roaming and 3G data. It is offering only the 16 GB models at zero down payment.
On the contract offer, RCom president and CEO (Wireless) Gurdeep Singh said, "There are no hidden charges or clauses, no processing fees or fine-print."
Bharti Airtel is also selling iPhone 5S and 5C but it is not offering any bundled offer. Customers can, however, avail a discount of up to 50 per cent on monthly rentals, the operator said. The trend of offering high-end smartphones with a bundled offer is prevalent in the US markets.
