Everyone might be talking about the upcoming iPhone 8 but if you are looking to upgrade or make the switch to iPhone, you might consider one of Apple’s older devices.
A number of mobile operators and retailers in Thailand are slowly starting to roll out special offers on older iPhone models, in preparation of the the launch of Apple’s new flagship handset, which is tipped to be unveiled in September.
Reports say the iPhone 8 could cost upwards of $1,000, which means you will need fairly deep pockets if you want to buy one.
Not only that but according to a recent note to investors, the iPhone 8 will be in such demand that most potential buyers will face considerable delays before they can get their hands on one.
With the iPhone 8 expected to be released in September to major markets, the new handset will be in such short supply that it could be well into 2018 before they are more widely available in in markets such as Thailand.
If you are looking for a new iPhone then it is well worth looking over Apple’s existing line up.
The iPhone SE, which was was first launched last year, includes many of the Cupertino firm’s flagship specs but at a much lower price.
The 4 inch SE includes a Apple’s powerful A9 chip, which well and truly holds its own against the majority of Android handsets.
The SE also includes a superb 12 MP camera which is capable of shooting 4K video.
In a bid to clear stock, Thai retailer Banana IT have knocked 3,900 baht off the 16GB iPhone SE, which is now on sale for 12,900 baht.
In addition to the offer on the iPhone SE, Banana IT have also reduced the price of the iPhone 6S Plus. The 32GB gold version is now on sale for 22,900 baht. By comparison the Apple website still sells the same handset for 26,500 baht.
The 5.5 inch iPhone 6S Plus includes Apple’s 3D Touch feature, is powered by the super fast A9 chipset and its 12MP camera still stands up against those of even the newest flagship smartphones.
