iPhone 7 pre-orders kick off tonight on Flipkart

iPhone 7 Box

The iPhone 7 is all set to land in India on October 7 in the midst of the hectic festive season. Flipkart has now decided to open up pre-orders for the device about a week before it arrives in the country.

Interested buyers can book the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus starting from 11:59pm on September 29 via Flipkart’s dedicated page for the handset. The former is priced at Rs 60000 for the 32GB model, Rs 70000 for the 128GB variant, and Rs 80000 for the 256GB one. The latter will go up for sale at Rs 72000, Rs 82000, and Rs 92000, correspondingly.

News of the newly-minted partnership between Apple and Flipkart made headlines last week. The US-based brand is doing things a bit differently with the launch of the iPhone 7, given that it usually relies on a network of offline third-party retailers to sell its wares. Making the phone officially available online may help increase the phone’s sales.

Some of the major names which are currently accepting early bookings include iWorld, Unicorn, Beetel Teletech, Jumbo, and Rashi Peripherals.
