iPhone 11 for under Rs 50,000 on Amazon India means get it and don't wait for iPhone 12
India Today Tech October 6, 2020
In the upcoming Great India Sale, dates of which will be revealed today, Amazon India is going to sell the iPhone 11 for under Rs 50,000. There is already a deal teaser on the website about it, noting that the iPhone 11 will be available at a discounted price of Rs 4x999 in the upcoming sale. This will be the lowest ever price on this phone, claims Amazon.
While the deal sounds enticing and it is one question many people may have is this: should I buy the iPhone 11 or wait for the iPhone 12. Now, there is no denying that the iPhone 12 is coming soon. The launch of the next iPhone is expected this month, which is this October, reportedly on October 13, and it is expected that the iPhone 12 will be available in India towards the end of October.
But the iPhone 11 under Rs 50,000 is such a deal that you should not wait for the iPhone 12. You won't regret getting the iPhone 11 for under Rs 50,000, which is if you can get it because over here at the India Today Tech we expect a huge rush for this deal when Amazon starts selling the iPhone 11 in the Great Indian Sale and we expect that there aren't going to be too many units available.
All of that for later, though. For now, it is clear that the iPhone 11 under Rs 50,000 is something not to be missed even if iPhone 12 is coming. Let us explain in five reasons.
Reason One: The iPhone 11 is a great phone. And it is a great phone at its regular price, which is close to Rs 65,000. To get this phone for less than Rs 50,000 is the deal of the month, or even year. The phone is fast with its A13 Bionic processor, it has a fantastic screen and long battery life, it runs the iOS 14, and its two cameras are among the best you can buy in the market. To put it another way, it is a 90 per cent phone of the iPhone 11 Pro at almost 50 per cent price if you are getting it for less than Rs 50,000.
Reason two: There is not going to be a huge difference in terms of features and capabilities for the iPhone 11 and the iPhone 12. Understand that Apple believes in incremental updates. It doesn't change phones in a significant way every year. Instead, the updates to iPhones continually push them forward, but without a break from the past. So, we expect the iPhone 11 and the iPhone 12 to have similar designs. The iPhone 12 will also likely come with two rear cameras and a similar screen. It will likely get a faster A14 Bionic chip, but then A13 in itself is so fast that it doesn't matter that much. To cut the long story short, iPhone 11 and iPhone 12 for all practical purposes are going to be fairly close to each other. Like iPhone 11 and iPhone XR.
Reason 3: iPhone 12 will be definitely more expensive. Something like close to Rs 70,000. In other words, if you are getting the iPhone 11 for under Rs 50,000 go for it.
Reason 4: All right, we understand that the iPhone 12 is coming soon. But we don't have an official date yet. So maybe, don't miss a deal for something that doesn't exist for now.
Reason 5: While the launch of the iPhone 12 series will make the iPhone 11 previous-gen, do understand that Apple supports iPhones for at least 3 to 4 years. So even if you end up getting the iPhone 11 in 202 and not the iPhone 12, you are bound to get software support until 2023 or 2024.
