For those who are thinking that the Apple iPhone X costs a lot in India, here’s a sweet deal. Mukesh Ambani-led Reliance Jio has come up with buyback offer again, but this time for the Apple iPhone X. For the unaware, pre-orders for the iPhone X began earlier today and as expected, the iPhone X went out of stock in just seven minutes.
The iPhone X can be pre-booked from a Reliance Digital store or Jio.com, and as an advance amount, you have to pay Rs. 1,999. Like the Apple iPhone 8 and 8 Plus offer, Reliance Jio is also offering 70% cashback with the iPhone X, meaning you will get 70% discount on upgrading to next-generation iPhone. This was the same offer given by Reliance Jio to Apple iPhone 8 and 8 Plus buyers.
Alongside the Jio buyback offer, Citi bank customers will get a cashback of Rs. 10,000 if they pre-book the iPhone X between October 27 and November 2. The cashback will be credited to the customer’s bank account in 90 days from the date of purchase.
However, the only downside of this offer is that customers have to stick with Jio 4G network itself. Also, Reliance Jio is offering a Rs. 799 tariff plan for the purchasers of iPhone X under this offer. The Rs. 799 plan from Jio offers 3GB data per day and unlimited voice calls, SMS for 28 days. Customers can also avail this Reliance Jio iPhone X offer on Amazon India.
For the unaware, the Apple iPhone X in India costs Rs. 89,000 for the base 64GB model and Rs. 1,02,000 for the 256GB model. That said, the prices are on the steeper side when compared to other countries such as the US and UK. In the US, the iPhone X is priced at $999 for the base variant which dubs to Rs. 65,000. Recently, Apple also added international warranty for the unlocked iPhones purchased in other countries. Pre-booked customers will get the iPhone X by November 3.
