The iPhone 4 was released back in 2010 and despite it being overtaken by devices like the iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, and iPhone 5s, the handset could be looking to make a comeback in India in the form of an 8GB model. According to a report from The Economic Times, they claim that Apple is expected to begin sales of an 8GB iPhone 4 in the near future in a bid to help gain more market share and address lagging sales in the country. Given that Apple’s products are typically viewed as a “premium” product, its price tag, especially in developing markets, are usually out of the reach of the majority. So for Apple to introduce a cheaper and more affordable iPhone, those looking to get on the iPhone bandwagon will be able to do so at a lower cost.
According to the report, the 8GB iPhone 4 will be priced at roughly $243 which is about $187 cheaper than what the phone cost back when it was launched. The price of $243 will be after buybacks and monthly instalment plans. However like we said, with Apple concentrating on their latest smartphones, who will supply Apple’s iPhone 4? Well the rumors claim that Apple could be sourcing unsold iPhone 4 units from vendors around the world, although this could prove to be a very huge undertaking. Naturally Apple has yet to announce anything but if the rumors are to be believed, sales could begin as soon as next week.
