NEW DELHI: There is good news for all iPhone lovers. The price of iphone 5s will be reduced to a record low.
But there is a bad news too, those who don’t live in India won’t be able to avail this offer.
Apple has decided to further expand its reach in Indian smartphone market and hence moved to reduce the price of its iPhone 5s at an unimaginative price.
A report in the Economic Times said that Apple “will likely price the four-year-old iPhone 5s around Rs 15,000 apiece as part of an online-exclusive retailing strategy”.
Citing senior industry executives, ET said that “distributors have already informed the brick-and-mortar cellphone stores that iPhone 5s supplies will be eased out, and that the model would be sold only online – at an aggressive price point.”
Apple iPhone 5s currently sells at Rs 20,000 in India with some online retailers at Rs 17,499.
The 5S features a 4-inch, 1136 x 640 Retina display boasting a pixel density of 326 pixels per inch, coupled with a brightness rating of 500 nits and a contrast ratio of 800:1.
Apple brings a better iSight rear camera and FaceTime HD front-facing shooter to the 5S. The iSight camera comes with 8-megapixels, aperture (f/2.2) and pixel size of 1.5µm.
