The new iPhones are here! The iPhone XS and XS Max are here to replace the iPhone X. They feature a lot of new stuff and hefty new price tags. Then there is the iPhone XR, which is slightly cheaper but still giving your bank balance the proper kind of sleep depriving nightmares.
Here’s what the iPhone XS, XS Max and XR will cost in India-
So if you have to get a bite out of that 2018 iPhone lineup, you will have to spend a minimum of Rs 76,900. Then, of course, God’s given us a pair of kidneys, you could let go of one and splurge on that gold iPhone XS Max. Get the 512GB variant worth a whopping Rs 1,44,900. If the pricing is not insane enough for you, Apple is also being a penny-pincher by not including the lightning to 3.5 mm adapter that used to be included till last year’s iPhone X and 8. There is also no fast charger in the box, which is just a pathetic shame considering even mid range phones like the OnePlus 6 bundle it.
Another interesting thing to note here, the most expensive flagship Android here in India is the Galaxy Note 9 which you can snag at a price of Rs 67,900 for the 128 GB version. This means that you can get a phone which is definitely at par with the iPhone XS Max for literally around half the price and cheaper than any of the new iPhones. That is just insane.
So, what are your thoughts on the pricing? Will you be getting one? Here’s a trivia question for you. A family of 4 needs smartphones for each member. Would you recommend them to get 4 Poco F1 phones for Rs 88,000 or an iPhone XS coupled with a Rs 10,000 debt? Let us know in the comments section below.
