Apple just went official with an 8 GB variant of iPhone 5c, the smart phone was released with iPhone 5s and was released to replace the iPhone 5. With the same specifications but the whole chassis build out of plastic. Too bad for Apple, the phone failed to get much sales ever since it was released, perhaps because Apple users are used to having their phones made out of premium quality material. The release of an 8 gigs version of the phone just might help Apple with the sales.
The Apple iPhone 5c first appeared at a renowned UK carrier O2′s website, according to the listing, the phone is available with different tariffs, leading to different price points as well. The highest priced tariff is 43 quid per month in which the phone will be free. If you are looking for some other tariff, the carrier has that covered too. Apart from that, you can also pay £410 upfront and the monthly charges will drop to £13. SFR, the French carrier is also selling the 8 gigs variant of iPhone 5c. We’re expecting a number of other carriers who are also ready to join the list at any time now. The list of carriers who are going to offer the smart phone will apparently be the same list of carriers who were offering the iPhone 5c on the launch.
The US store, however, is still not showing the iPhone 5c on the list, but the UK store has already listed the device for £429,. For those who don’t know, the 16 GB variant costs £469, and the 32 gigs variant is available for £549. The price in Germany for the phone are €699 for the 32 gigs variant, €599 for 16 gigs, and the 8 gigs variant can be purchased for €549.
This leads us to the conclusion that the 8 gigs variant of iPhone 5c will be costing £40/€50 less than the 16 gigs variant. It’s not really a bargain as customers wouldn’t mind shedding some extra cash and going for the bigger version. However, things can turn out to be good for the phone which somewhat failed to perform in the market.
