As we already know that Apple will be launching the iPhone 7 at the same time in India when the launch will happen in UK and US, we also have rumors that the device is be comparatively cheap and affordable in India and will be launched with attractive payment plans.
Sources claim that pricing for the next-gen iPhone 7 will start at Rs. 49,990 for the base model of the iPhone 7 which is more likely to be a 32GB variant, Apple is also working closely with Citibank and Bajaj Finserv to deliver 0% interest EMI options for its customers looking to purchase the iPhone 7 at the launch. The plans will range upto a period of two years and will have no processing fees or surcharge.
This will give the sales of the iPhone a big push in India, with consumers getting the ability to own the otherwise difficult to afford smartphone.
Apple is now globally working with the Network carriers to make its new iPhone easily available to the customers. In India, however, such plans haven’t worked out in the past and network providers have generally stayed away from such plans.
Apple has however partnered with the Indian a few Networks like Airtel and Vodafone in the past to offer up the iPhone at attractive monthly payments. Let us see what Apple is upto now.
