The much-awaited iPhone X finally goes on sale at 6pm IST on Friday in India. These phones will be part of the first wave of the smartphone to go on sale. The iPhone X is the first mainstream handset in India to cost over a lakh, with prices for the smartphone going as high as Rs 1,02,000. Availability of the handset might be an issue for customers since there are rumors that the company’s might not be able to meet the huge demand for the phone.
The new iPhone X went up for pre-order last Friday and came with many offers in the country, such as the Jio Buyback offer, a Rs 10,000 cashback with Citibank credit card purchases, and others.
