The pricing for the new iPhones in India are way higher than in the US, as the Apple India confirmed the price list for iPhone 8, 8 Plus and iPhone X

The iPhone 8 64GB has a price tag of Rs. 64,000, which is $999, in the US it costs $699 . The iPhone 8 256GB, will cost Rs. 77,000, which is around $1,200. In the US the recommended price is at $849 on Apple’s official website. The iPhone 8 Plus 64GB will be priced in India at Rs. 73,000, which is around $1,140. In the US the same model has a price tag of $799.

iPhone 8 Plus 256GB in India is Rs. 86,000 (~$1,340), but in the US is priced at $949. The iPhone X with 64GB storage is priced at Rs. 89,000, which is just under $1,390, while in the US the recommended price is $999.

Finally Apple set a price tag for the 256GB iPhone X at Rs. 102,000, which is around a whooping $1,590!!!, but in the US is has a price tag of $1,149.

I wonder how will sales will go in a market which is more into cheap smartphones. The prices aren’t very attractive if you ask me.
