RCom to offer iPhone 5C, iPhone 5S in India on November 1

RCom today announced it will offer the iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S in India starting from November 1. The carrier hasn’t officially announced any pricing details of the new iPhones but we can expect them to offer some bundled plans with data usage if someone buys the iPhone from them. Today new rumors have been swirling around about the new iPhone prices in India with the iPhone 5C 16GB being pegged at Rs 41,900 and the iPhone 5S 16GB between Rs 52,500-53,500. At this point we cannot confirm any pricing but we can say that the iPhone 5S would be priced upwards of Rs 50,000.

Back in June RCom had announced it had tied up with Apple to offer the iPhone 5 along with special tariff plans for those who buy the smartphone from RCom. Earlier, Apple launched the iPhone 5 in India by appointing Redington and Ingram Micro as its distributors rather than tying up with carriers like Aircel and Airtel that it used to do earlier. This move ensured that iPhones were available in more retail stores across more cities than it was earlier available.
