Though Vodafone did not give any details about the date of availability, or the price.
The 16-gigabyte model will cost $199 in the US and the 32-gigabyte version will be priced at $299. “Pricing in India will be around Rs 35,000, as has been seen in all Apple iPhones,” industry experts said. According to the experts, the unlocked versions of the new iPhone would be available in the grey market at a discount of Rs 5,000-8,000.
