Apple iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus Red Special Edition Now Available in India
Earlier this month, Apple has introduced the new Product Red Special Edition of iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. The new Apple iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus Red Special Edition is now available for pre-order in India via Flipkart and the sale will commence on April 30. However, the phones are already available for purchase via Apple authorised resellers.
The iPhone 8 Product Red Special Edition comes with a price tag of Rs 67,940 for the 64GB storage variant and Rs. 81,500 for the 256GB option. On the other hand, the iPhone 8 Plus Product Red Special Edition is priced at Rs 77,560 for the 64GB storage variant while the 256GB storage option comes with the price tag of Rs. 91,110.
Apple iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus Red Special Edition features a stunning red finish for the glass back and a matching red aluminum frame around the sides. The front of the phone is now in black, unlike last year’s Red iPhone 7 and 7 Plus which arrived with a white coloured front panel.
To recall, the company rolls out the special edition devices to highlight its partnership with RED that seeks to engage the private sector in raising awareness and funds to help eliminate HIV/AIDS. Part of the proceeds of sales from its (PRODUCT) RED range goes to the Global Fund HIV/AIDS grants that provide testing, counseling, treatment, and prevention programmes with focus specifically on eliminating transmission of the virus from mothers to their babies. As of December last year, Apple had raised over $160 million (nearly Rs. 1,038 crores) for the (PRODUCT) RED brand owned by (RED).
Greg Joswiak, Apple’s Vice President of Product Marketing said that “This special edition (PRODUCT) RED iPhone features a stunning red and black colour combination and also offers customers the opportunity to make an impact in fighting the spread of HIV and AIDS.”
