In Details: Apple iPhone 5C The Cheapest Phone Suddenly Got Expensive For Price Tag Over Rs 34500

Apple unveiled two new iPhones at a special event held at its Cupertino headquarters on Tuesday. It announced iPhone 5s, successor to the iPhone 5, which comes with a lot of new features like a brand new A7 processor. Apple also unveiled iPhone 5c, which was widely anticipated to be the low-cost iPhone, but it turned out to be a big disappointment on that aspect. Apple does Not Have "Cheap" Word in their Dictionary. All They Want To Make Profit With Big Margin in Their Mind. But it is business as usual for Apple. Nothing has changed for them and they are still looking forward to a sellout 24 hours of preorders on September 13 and probably a record first weekend of sale on September 20.

While the iPhone 5c boasts impressive hardware specifications and comes in a wide variety of colours, the key criteria for this iPhone was always going to be the price, and this is where it disappoints.  The iPhone 5c was supposed to be Apple's weapon to take on Android in at least the mid-level smartphone segment, if an entry-level pricing was never going to come to fruition. However, one look at the off-contract pricing for the iPhone 5C in various regions, and all those hopes can be put to rest

The entry-level 16GB iPhone 5c without a contract has been priced at $549 in the US. That comes out to a whopping Rs. 35,000 at current exchange rates (1 USD = 63.65 INR) and does not include the duties and other charges that come in while pricing a product in India. If you were hoping for a sub-Rs. 25,000 pricing for the iPhone 5c in India, it's safe to say we won't see anything like that.

The Apple iPhone 5C weighs just 133 grams with an 8.9mm thickness. The screen is 4 inches supporting resolution of 1136×640 pixels with 326ppi and what Apple calls is as the ‘Retina Display’. The handset will be available in Green, Yellow, White, pink and Blue color variants.

iPhone 5C also flaunts a 1.2 megapixel camera on the front and another 8 megapixel camera (iSight) on the rear. It is an auto focus camera with LED flash support. Full HD video recording (with video stabilization) and playback is supported. The 8MP iSight camera delivers startlingly sharp photo quality thanks to features like a sophisticated five‑element lens. And panorama, which lets you get stunning high‑resolution shots of things like packed soccer stadiums as Apple Claims.

Apple iPhone 5C is powered by an A6 chipset and houses a single Nano SIM. This handset runs on the iOS7 OS. There are proximity, accelerometer, light and gyro sensors. The built-in Li-ion rechargeable battery gives a talk-time of up to 10 hours on 3G networks and up to 10 hours internet usage on a 4G network.

Other features are  4G, 3G, GPS with GLONASS / A-GPS and Bluetooth 4.0. Many claim that Apple may not have the same impact in the market with the iPhone 5C or iPhone 5S as they did with the iPhone 5, because of the lack of innovation in these new products.But They Have Packed The New iPhone 5C in Attractive Colour and Packaging You can also Buy The Dotted Case For your iPhone 5c

Apple has announced a couple of accessories today for the new iPhones that it unveiled earlier today. New covers have been announced for the iPhone 5C and the iPhone 5S. There’s a soft-feel silicone cover being offered for the iPhone 5C and a leather cover for the iPhone 5S. For both smartphones, Apple will also be selling docks. There’s a separate dock for each smartphone, however the iPhone 5S dock is compatible with iPhone 5 as well.:

The pricing in other regions is even worse, with the iPhone 5c priced at 599 euros (approximately Rs. 50,500) in Germany and 469 pounds in the UK (approximately Rs. 47,000). Of course both those prices include VAT, which can be sizeable. Pricing in Hong Kong is HKD 4,688 (approximately Rs. 38,500). However, it's the pricing in China, one of two "emerging markets" - the other being India - that the iPhone 5c was said to be targeting that is really surprising. The iPhone 5c price in China is 4488 Chinese Yuan Renminbi, which works out to over Rs. 46,500, without duties or any other charges.

The Apple iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S will be Launching in India On 20th October.  The iPhone 5s however will launch for upwards of Rs. 50,000 for the 16GB variant making the 64 GB iPhone 5s the most expensive smartphone till date in India, since it will cross the Rs. 65,000 barrier. Essentially, Apple is not ready to launch a cheap iPhone, yet. Its market share in the US is still growing and that’s where the iPhone 5C will probably become the best-selling iPhone ever that is available for $99 on a two-year contract. Now You Decide iPhone 5C is The Cheapest Phone or The Cheap Phone Made by Apple.
