New Delhi: Apple's flagship smartphone, the iPhone 5S could get a 50 percent price cut and be available for just about Rs 12,000 only.
With Apple all set to launch a new smartphone, the iPhone SE in the market on March 22, the iPhone 5S could just become a sideshow.
The 4-inch iPhone 5S has gone through a series of price cuts earlier and is available for USD 450 in the US. And with the launch of iPhone SE, reports say the iPhone 5S could get a 50 percent price discount to USD 225 in order to keep it in the market.
However, one is not sure if the price cut would be affected in India where the iPhone 5S is available for just about Rs 21,000 (16GB variant) after a series of price cuts.
But if the price cut should become effective in India, post 50 percent discount, the iPhone 5S could be available for just about Rs 12,000 in the country.
Considering that the sales of iPhones in India have gone down due to high prices, the price cut could sure revive its sale to a certain extend.
