Apple’s iPhone offers plenty of unique features and functions that its Google-powered rivals can only dream of. But in a price sensitive market like India dreaming of an iPhone could be a costly affair.
But what if you get an Apple iPhone 6 for a price less than Rs 10,000? People looking to buy an iPhone 6 (16GB, Space Grey) can now get it through Flipkart for as low as Rs 9,990 thanks to an exchange offer by the e-commerce major.
This means a whooping Rs 22,000 discount on the 16GB variant of the iPhone 6.
At present the smartphone is available on Flipkart at a special price of Rs 31,990 after an additional Rs 5,000 off. There is also an option of paying through EMI along with discounts of up to 5 percent from a few selected banks.
But there’s a catch, and it will always be.
To avail the discount of Rs 22,000, you will have to exchange a device that calculates to that amount or somewhere close to it.
And only the iPhone 6s Plus offers such a value.
It may sound funny but no consumer would ever want to get discount for an old model to give in a newer model. Check the below screenshot! What’s even more surprising is that exchange offer is ‘Flipkart Assured’.
However, this is also bad news for Android users as no Android device, offers an exchange value of Rs 22,000. Under Samsung, there is no option for Samsung flagships from at least a couple of generations. Moreover, the list of devices that can be exchanged is missing other flagship Android devices too.
Here is a quick roundup on the iPhone 6 – Apple’s flagship from 2014. It has a 4.7-inch LCD display with 1334 x 750 pixels resolution. The device is powered by an Apple A8 chip, and comes with 1GB RAM and available in three storage variants – 16GB/64GB/128GB.
