IPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus go up for pre-orders in India

Chinese manufacturers' rapid growth has been fuelled by strong domestic sales, but they now export 40 per cent of their smartphones, nearly double the number just three years ago, according to CLSA. The 64GB iPhone 8 Plus will be available at Rs 73,000 and its 256GB will carry a price tag of Rs 86,000 in the country.

Apple announced its iPhone X at a press event earlier this month. The analyst blamed OLED panels for the delay.

Those hoping to be among the first to own Apple's $999 iPhone X could be left empty-handed come November 3, a new report suggests. Christopher Caso analyst claims that the Apple iPhone X is facing difficulties, which may cause further delay in shipping.

Given that the teardown is still underway, more details on battery, RAM, heat-pipe design, and other details such as display, handset fragility, and more will be revealed soon. The new iPhones will be available in stores starting from September 29.

Global retail major Brightstar said that Apple iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus will be available for pre-order starting September 22, 2017 at various authorised stores in North and East India. As a result, full production could be delayed until December. The iPhone 8 and iPhone X have followed this trend. Usually, consumers want to buy the premium iPhones, which is why many of them are holding back from preordering the other two phones. Ming-Chi Kuo told investors that the iPhone X was cannibalizing the iPhone 8 sales, which would negatively affect Apple's September quarter results. The iPhone 8 Plus ups the ante to Rs 73000 and Rs 86000, correspondingly. Those who use PhonePe for payments will get 10 per cent cashback on payments. The iPhone 8 also has wireless charging and a glass back instead of the typical metal shell iPhones typically have.

Flipkart says pre-orders placed on or before September 26 will be delivered by September 30. The iPhone 8 pre-orders on China Mobile were around one million units in the same period, much lower than 2.5 million units for the iPhone 7 and 3.5 million units for the iPhone 6.

For consumers who already upgraded last year to the iPhone 7 or 7 Plus, Apple didn't do a great job offering enough new features to entice those consumers to trade in their phones after only a year.

The Plus - thanks to Apple's dual camera feature, which debuted in the iPhone 7 - will be able to play with settings in portrait mode.
