A few days after Apple announced its plan to launch the flagship iPhone 5S and 5C in India on November 1, Reliance Communication (RCom) has announced it will offer both flagship smartphones to its customers.

Although nothing else has been revealed in the statement, a trusted source at RCom said the iPhone 5C will be available at a starting price of Rs 41,900 for the 16GB variant and the iPhone 5S will retail from Rs 53,500.

The iPhone 5C will be available in all five colours whereas the iPhone 5S is reported to be available in gold, silver and grey. Both the iPhones will be available in all 16GB, 32GB and 64GB capacities.

The devices are set to be launched at 12 AM on November 1, like iPhones in the past.

It is also learnt that RCom will be working on attractive monthly bundling offers, which will include unlimited voice, data, STD and roaming for a monthly fee.

In the United States, the unlocked version of the iPhone 5S 16GB variant is available for around $649 (plus taxes) while the iPhone 5C 16GB variant is available for $549 (plus taxes).

With the launch of the iPhone 5S and 5C, Apple is likely to discontinue the iPhone 5. There is no update so far on a price drop of the iPhone 4S.
