INDIA- Most expensive place to buy iPhone 6S and 6S Plus
Apple iPhone 6S Price in India: So finally the Apple distributors have confirmed the launch price of its most awaited handsets – iPhone 6S and 6S plus in India. The starting range of iPhone 6S would be Rs.62,000 i.e for 16GB model and iPhone 6S plus will start at Rs.72,000 for the same storage capacity.
Apple iPhone 6S has a 4.70-inch 750×1334 display alongside 2GB RAM, iOS 9, A9 Processor and a 12-megapixel rear camera. Whereas 6S Plus has a 5.50 inch 1080×1920 display which is the only major difference between the two. Apple has added the force dimension to rework the way we interact with the phone’s touchscreen. In addition to that, the new iPhones are also designed to be water resistant.
Apple is well known for pricing its iPhones quite high. However this time it has taken the launching price of its latest handsets to another level. India is the most expensive place to buy iPhone 6s and 6s plus ascompared to countries like U.S.A,which has its cheapest model of 6s priced at $649 i.e. roughly around Rs.42,000 and Singapore at $1,048(approx. Rs.48,000). That means citizens of India would have to pay nearly Rs. 20,000 for the lowest model.
|Apple iPhone 6S List + Storage||Price(in India)|
|6S Plus 16GB||Rs.72,000|
|6S Plus 64GB||Rs.82,000|
|6S Plus 128GB||Rs.92,000|
With smartphones like Samsung Galaxy S range and Note 4 in the market, the high pricing of these latest iPhones could prove a costly move for Apple. Analysts suggest that this move could very much affect the amount of user base in India and could easily take a toll. Starting from Rs.60,000 and going as high as Rs.92,000 is something that is way out of reach for even an average rich urban customer.
Having said that it is yet to be seen whether the high pricing strategy of Apple would hamper its user base in India or not. These iPhones are already available for pre-orders on leading E-commerce websites.
