Two of India's leading telecom operators, Bharti Airtel and Reliance Communication, are reportedly said to start selling Apple's latest generation of smartphones, the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C, in India, starting November 1st.
Moreover, according to a PTI, RCom has also revealed the pricing of the two handsets. According to the report, the iPhone 5C will be available at a price starting from Rs. 41,900 (for the 16GB variant) and iPhone 5S will be priced starting Rs. 53,500 (for the 16GB variant).
Apart from the availability and pricing of the handsets, another interesting development is that Airtel operates 4G LTE networks in certain circles like Bangalore, Kolkata and Pune.
