It is still unclear on what Apple will name the upcoming smartphone. Some say that it will be named as iPhone 7 and some rumors state that it will be called as iPhone 6SE. While Apple released an iPhone SE nearly after two years from the iPhone SE, the iPhone 6SE speculations could now be removed from the mind as the latter will be called as the iPhone 7 itself.
Apple has been always aggressive with the pricing of the smartphones in the country. If the vendor launches the smartphone with the same global pricing it'll be much lesser than the original Indian pricing.
Apple even called the iPhone SE as the compact smartphone but priced it aggressively as well. Starting at Rs. 39,999, the smartphone didn't inspire much confidence on many users and as a result, the sales of the company has seen a downfall in the country.
Before the iPhone SE, the compact phone, namely the iPhone 5C, which arrived in colors said to feature a low price tag, however, that didn't happen too. Now, the Cupertino giant is a step away from the launch of new iPhones.
As per the leaked pricing reports till date, the 2016 iPhones will also be priced aggressively in the country, which is nothing new to Indian customers. Here's the price estimation of the upcoming iPhones.
Apple iPhone 7 Price
The first up in this list will be the Apple iPhone 7. Well, Apple priced the iPhone 6S from Rs. 53,500 for the base 16GB model, which is very huge. Even the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 costs as much as Rs. 59,990, which also steal your pockets.
Apple will surely launch the device with an aggressive price that competes with the Note 7. It is also noted that Apple is planning to go with 32GB as the base model for all the 2016 iPhones.
The 32GB Variant for Rs. 62,000
As said earlier, Apple will compete the Galaxy Note 7 in terms of pricing. That said, the base 32GB model of the iPhone 7 will cost as much as Rs. 53,000 according to a Weibo leaked post. Followed by the 64GB model for Rs. 61,000 and then the 256GB variant for Rs. 71,000.
The Weibo Prices Were in 'Yuan'
The Weibo post revealed the pricing of the iPhones in Chinese Yuan. Apple won't release the iPhones based on global pricing in India, as they always been priced on the higher side when compared to other markets all over the world.
If the trend continues to be same, Apple will launch the iPhone 7 32GB variant for something around Rs. 62,000.
The iPhone 7 Plus Starts From Rs. 62,000
Coming back to the iPhone 7 Plus, we might see the pricing starts from Rs. 62,000 for the 32GB model as per the Weibo post. Also, the 64GB variant might cost Rs. 70,000 followed by the 256GB variant for Rs. 79,000.
These Prices Are Not Final
Before the launch of iPhone 6S and 6S Plus, we saw a similar pricing leak ahead of the official launch. But, Apple turned out to be more aggressive and priced them on a higher note.
Having said this, as usual with other iPhone launches in India, the iPhone 7 series will also be priced on a higher note. All we need to do is wait for the official launch of the smartphone.
