Apple iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus pre-registrations in India kick off, but there's nothing official about it

Yes, if you’ve been waiting to buy an iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus in India, you can now pre-register it for as low as Rs 1,000.

The all new Apple iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are official and pre-orders have already kicked off in most countries, with sale to start from September 16. While Apple will be bringing the new iPhones in India on October 7, premium retailers have now started taking pre-registrations. You can now pay as low as Rs 1,000 to pre-register the new iPhones. Just choose the storage and color variant that you re interested in, and you can get your early hands-on the new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus when it launches on October 7, but there s a catch. These are not official Apple pre-registrations and are being done by the resellers themselves. There is no guarantee that you would get your desired iPhone 7 variant on day one as it entirely depends on the stocks Apple gives them, but it could improve your chances getting the version you desire.

While pre-registrations have begun, it appears that the Jet Black variant, which is only available with 128GB and 256GB variants, is in a pretty good demand. Out of the five premium retailers that I contacted, none of them could guarantee me of Jet Black variant. Despite being a limited edition, premium retailers will be giving out the Jet Black variant on first come first serve basis. Also, when it comes to other color variants, such as gold, rose gold, black and silver, none of the retailers could assure me to get the new iPhones on October 7. First stock is expected to be in limited quantity, and the next stock may arrive after another 15 days, one of the retailers told me.

How much does one need to pay to pre-book the iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus?

Out of the premium retailers that I contacted, Unicorn and Aptronix are taking just Rs 1,000 to pre-register the new iPhones. Nyasa is giving the flexibility to pay anywhere between Rs 1,500 to Rs 6,000, which is refundable in case you don t get the color and storage variant on time. Maple and iWorld are taking Rs 10,000 for pre-registration. Of course, you will have to visit the store to make the payment and get the receipt for the same.

Resellers such as Unicorn and iWorld are also taking pre-registrations on their respective website. Just choose the model (iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus), the nearby store and storage variant. However, it doesn t seem to have gone live, yet, and seems more of a work-in-progress. In case you can t make it to the store, Maple is also giving bank details where you can transfer the funds and mail on their email ID, following which they will revert you with the receipt.

In Delhi, iZenica is taking pre-orders for Rs 5,000. However, the same is offered by other retailers. Also, when I enquired for the cost, they said it will start at Rs 60,000 for the iPhone 7 32GB, which Apple had officially announced, but exact pricing of other models will only be revealed a couple of days ahead of the October 7 launch.

Apple iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus specifications

The new iPhones bring a host of improvements over their predecessors. The iPhone 7 features a 4.7-inch HD display, whereas the iPhone 7 Plus features a 5.5-inch full HD display. Apple claims that the new display is 25 percent brighter with wide color gamut. Under the hood is a faster A10 Fusion 64-bit quad-core chipset, which Apple claims is two times faster than the A8 chipset on the iPhone 6. The graphics performance has also been improved by up to three times compared to iPhone 6, courtesy of hexa-core GPU, Apple says.

Both iPhones come with better 12-megapixel cameras. While the iPhone 7 gains optical image stabilization, the highlight of iPhone 7 Plus is the dual-camera setup. It can shoot great photos in low light, and is also a capable portrait shooter with DSLR-like bokeh effect. On the storage front, you can choose between 32GB, 128GB and 256GB variants. The new smartphones run on iOS 10 out-of-the-box.
