Apple reintroduces iPhone 4 as cheaper option in India


The iPhone 4 has been around for quite some time. The now three year old device was the first to have Apple’s all new flat back design with glass on both sides, and the design revolutionized the phone and possibly even the industry. It was one of the most advanced devices when it was released, however technology has improved quite a bit since then. However, that hasn’t stopped Apple from reintroducing the device in India, where the iPhone 4 is now the cheaper option of iPhones, compared to the iPhone 5s and 5c. Both devices are very expensive in India as carrier subsidies are not as dramatic as they are in other countries.

The device will launch at a price of Rs 23,000, or about $370 USD. That’s a pretty steep price for a device that has been on the market for over three years now. However it is still a much cheaper option than either of Apple’s newest devices. The price point is much higher than the anticipated $240 USD that was expected by The India Times. This could mean that sales of the device won’t be very high due to the high price point, but it is still nice to see that Apple is working to bring in a cheaper (although still not cheap) third option for its customers in India.

    K. Will they sell it in iOS 5 or 6? I have an iphone 4 updated to iOS 7 and it’s now shitty. Damn slow and freezes many times and requires restarting. Doesn’t feel like an iphone anymore. Now these jerks are planning to sell it as cheap iphone in India. Do they think Indians are stupid enough to buy a piece of junk for whatsoever the price. Also MotoG will be released here for around ₹12k which is more value for money.
    Earlier I liked my iphone4 a lot but after updating it to iOS 7 it’s become shitty. Hope iOS 7.1 will have something to make my iPhone usable and smoother as earlier, else I’ll switch to motoG (Hope they give an exchange offer to old junk iphone4)..
