Apple iPhone 5, which was unveiled officially on September 12 and released in selected markets including US and UK, is expected to reach the Indian consumer market only in December.
However, if you are an Indian Apple fanboy, who would like to own the iPhone 5 before its official release in the market, you can avail the handset from the grey markets in the country by paying double the price.
At the same time, grey markets are not the only places to grab the sixth generation iPhone in India. In a recent development, eBay.in, an e-commerce website has also listed the 16GB, 32GB and 64GB variants of the Aplee's smartphone, but you will have to empty you pockets to get one of those. As the price listing for iPhone 5 16GB, 32GB and 64GB models are extremely high, that is, Rs 92,000, Rs 1,00,000 and Rs 1,10,000 respectively.
Interestingly, the online site is also offering the handset with free shipping and these are sealed and factory unlocked versions of the iPhone 5.
Just to remind you, about the specs of the new Apple phone, iPhone 5 will come packed with a 4 inch display with a resolution of 1136 x 640 pixels, a new Apple A6 chipset, 1GB RAM, 16GB/32GB/64GB internal memory, 8MP rear camera with iSight technology and 1.2MP front camera.
Further, the iPhone 5 is powered by the iOS 6 platform with new features such as improved Siri voice assistant feature, deeper integration to Facebook, new PassBook and PhotoStream apps, Apple Maps, enhanced Safari browser and many more.
