The wait is finally over for many Apple fanboys as the Cupertino-based tech giant will launch the new iPhones in India on October 17. Customers can pre-order the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus beginning Tuesday October 7, Apple said in a press statement.
Now, according to a report by NDTV Gadgets, the iPhone 6 is expected to be priced at Rs 53,500 for the 16GB model, while the iPhone 6 Plus will be starting at Rs 62,500. However, Apple did not disclose the price at which it will sell the new iPhone lineup in the country.
Apple's new iPhone lineup has been well received by consumers and critics alike. The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have broken many new records, as its first weekend sales topped 10 million worldwide.
If money is not a big issue, it won't matter much. If you are due on upgrade, here are top 5 solid reasons why you should upgrade to the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus. Stay tuned to GizBot for more upgrades!
Bigger than ever
The iPhone 6 has rounded edges, and is larger than the iPhone 5s with a 4.7 -inch display, and Apple is calling it "Retina HD." It's just 6.9mm thick compared with the iPhone 5S's 7.6mm.
The iPhone 6 Plus , on the other hand, is the real departure from Apple's past designs. This very handset has a huge 5.5-inch 1080p screen. With the iPhone 6 Plus, the company has introduced a new feature called "Reachability." Well simply double-touch the home button and the entire UI slides down so you can more easily reach buttons at the top of the screen.
The processor fitted inside the iPhone 6 is, as expected, called the A8 processor. It's 64-bit just like the A7 processor in the iPhone 5S, but delivers up to 25 % faster CPU and up to 50 % faster GPU. Doesn't that sound great ?
As expected, now you can get the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus in a 128GB of storage space. Unfortunately, the iPhone 6 will not be available in 32GB storage option. You will be able to buy it in 16GB, 64GB and 128GB options.
Although the iPhone 6 still has an 8-megapixel iSight camera with True Tone flash, 1.5 micron pixels and an f/2.2 aperture. But the company says they have used an entirely new lens. Moreover, thanks to iOS 8, the iPhone 6 will get a new Time Lapse feature, too.
Apple Pay and NFC
Both variants of the iPhone 6 will have a new wireless technology built-in. Basically Apple has added NFC to the iPhone 6 as part of its new Apple Pay contactless payment platform. All you need to tap the top of your phone on the NFC reader and your transaction is done.
