The iPhone XR was launched in India with a base price of INR76,900 ($1,117). Six months later it has received an impressive discount of INR17,000 ($247) in the country.
The Apple iPhone XR will be available at a discounted price in India starting tomorrow, and those who have HDFC Bank's debit/credit card will get an additional 10% cashback, thus resulting in a total discount of up to INR24,500 ($356). You can check out the table below for detailed pricing.
|Model||MRP||Price for non-HDFC Bank customers||Price for HDFC Bank customers|
|64GB||INR76,900 ($1,117)||INR59,900 ($870)||INR53,900 ($783)|
|128GB||INR81,900 ($1,190)||INR64,900 ($942)||INR58,400 ($848)|
|256GB||INR91,900 ($1,335)||INR74,900 ($1,088)||INR67,400 ($979)|
iPhone fans in India are in for a treat as they can now buy the iPhone XR for as low as INR53,900 ($783) instead of having to spend a similar amount on buying an older iPhone.
This move should also help the Cupertino-based tech giant to boost the sales of its smartphones in India where it has really struggled lately.
I think this phone should be priced around 500USD. It's initial price is crazy high even at a discounted price, it's still not a reasonable choice atleast objectively.
I agree with you in some case, such as Samsung Android improve its security. But most of all, iOS win over native Android, and win absolutely over modified Android.
