Sometimes the wrong choices or decisions can turn out to be catastrophic for a brand. Decision-wise, one might wonder why things go wrong, so badly. This same very thing has happened with Apple, and it's no fun at all to deal with.
Just a short while back, we had reported that Apple might come up with an 8GB version of iPhone 5C due to lower than expected sales. Now, the 8GB version of Apple's iPhone 5C smartphone has gone official in select parts of Europe.
The company today finally launched the 8GB version of iPhone 5C, at a cheaper price. The Apple iPhone 5C now comes in 8GB, 16GB and 32GB versions.
Multiple media reports in the past few hours have been saying that Apple could release the 8GB version of its iPhone 5C. Though, it wasn't expected but now several network providers in the U.K have started offering the 8GB version of iPhone 5C.
The handset has appeared via UK-based carrier O2's website with variety of plans to choose from. In fact, French carrier SFR has also listed the new iPhone 5c version, and many more are expected to offer the device.
The 8GB iPhone 5C (unlocked) version is also available via Apple's own online (U.K) store for £429 (Rs. 43,558), compared to £469 (Rs. 47,619) for the 16 GB model and £549 (Rs. 55,752) for the 32 GB. Logically speaking, the price difference between the 8GB and 16GB version of iPhone 5C will be £40 (Rs. 4061).
Cosmetically, the new iPhone 5C variant looks absolutely similar to the existing iPhone 5C models. The core difference between the 8GB version and the current variants is the reduced storage capacity. For the reminder, Apple iPhone 5C does not come with an option to expand on-board memory via a microSD card slot. On the surface, the iPhone 5C comes with a 4-inch IPS Retina Display (1136x 640p, 326ppi), A6 chipset, 8MP rear-facing camera with a single LED Flash and a 1.2MP front-facing shooter.
Apple hasn't announced whether the 8GB version of iPhone 5C will be made available in India or not. If it gets launched in India, the device should be priced between Rs. 29,000 and Rs. 32,000.
