What is the price of Apple iPhone 5S 16GB in India? eBay sellers claims ₹65,000, ₹69,500
Apple unveiled its latest flagship iPhone – the 5S couple of days back and speculations are at an all-time high regarding the availability and pricing of the smartphone in India. According to a fresh listing on eBay a Hyderabad seller is claiming that iPhone 5S 16GB will be priced at a whopping ₹64,999 and will be available from September 30.
Apple’s iPhone 5S has a 4-inch display with a pixel density of 326 ppi, is powered by the new 64-bit A7 processor and an M7 motion co-processor, Touch ID fingerprint scanner, 8-megapixel iSight rear camera which is capable of video recording at 120 frames-per-second at 720p.
The handset will be available in three colours – Gold, Silver and Space Grey. Apple has also unveiled new leather covers for the iPhone 5S in six different colours – Beige, Black, Brown, Blue, Yellow and Red. Pricing in the US is $199 for 16GB, $299 for 32GB and $399 for 64GB, but all of these prices are under a two-year contract. Expected to ship in the US around September 20, the iPhone 5S is also going to be available in other markets like UK around the same time. Availability in India had been speculated to be sometime around start of November.
However a new listing on eBay claims that 16GB version is going to cost a whopping ₹64,999 with availability guaranteed for September 30. From the looks of it the seller is offering a US based handset through some backdoor channel – which is evident from the fact that no information about service availability is listed. The seller is also claiming that buyers can pick up the handset from Hyderabad if they are going to be in the city. If we go by the above pricing 32GB and 64GB could easily cost ₹70,000 and ₹75,000 respectively.
Another eBay seller is claiming to sell the same 16GB iPhone 5S for a whopping ₹69,500. This one does come with a 1 year replacement warranty though.
