Apple iPhone8 and 8 Plus (PRODUCT)RED Special Edition now available in India

  • A leaked render of the rumoured iPhone SE 2 which hints a glass body similar to iPhone 8 but in a iPhone SE form factor

Apple is expected to have sold up to 14 million iPhone X units during the first quarter of the year, down from an estimated 27 million in the December quarter. Basically, when you buy a device or product which is RED, from that purchase Apple sends a contribution to the Global Fund.

The base variant of the (PRODUCT) RED iPhone 8 with 64GB onboard storage will retail for Rs 67,990 whereas the 128GB variant will retail for Rs 81,500.

While the smartphone in the video appears to be a dummy unit (because it was not switched on) we can assume that the glass back is in place to offer wireless charging as is on the iPhone 8 series and the iPhone X. Both the models are now available for pre-order in India on Flipkart and the sale will commence on April 30.

This may also be the reason Apple is rumoured to be working on a 2018 iPhone model with the design of iPhone X, but an LCD display and a price tag starting at $550 (roughly Rs. 36,650). Earlier this month, we had already learned that the (PRODUCT) RED Special Edition iPhones were set to launch in the country sometime this May. The stress is most likely overdone, but it's a sign of the new, more-anxious normal for Apple and its investors. The iPhone 8 Plus RED is priced at Rs 77,560 for the 64GB storage option, while the 256GB version cost Rs 91,110. The previous Product RED iPhones came with white display panels which just weren't very aesthetically pleasing.

Philadelphia Eagles select South Dakota State TE Dallas Goedert
He is the first NFL Draft pick from SDSU since 2010 when the Buffalo Bills selected defensive end Danny Batten in the sixth round. The Eagles are likely salivating over the possibilities with both Ertz and Goedert on the field together.

The lack of demand for Apple's premium iPhone model can be seen in the earnings reports of some its suppliers. This is a 6-core processor that is claimed to be 25% faster than the previous gen chipset.

Other speculated specifications include HEIF/HEVC media recording, a headphone jack, and wireless charging support, which doesn't seem unlikely since the phone will sport a glass back. And obviously, the headphone jack is still missing.

If you buy the more expensive iPhone 8 Plus there's a dual-lens camera which can add DSLR-style depth of field to images via Apple's clever Portrait mode. However, Apple enthusiasts can hope for a better camera, up from its 12MP rear camera. It is not for sure if the smartphone will support FaceID or not.
