Ingram Micro To Distribute New Variants of iPhone From Friday


Ingram Micro India has announced it will offer the new generation iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. Customers will be able to pre-order iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus beginning Friday, 22 September at its partner stores and both will be available in stores starting on Friday, 29 September.

Additionally, iPhone X will be available to pre-order at its partner stores on Friday, 27 October. The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus will launch on Friday, 29 September at 1,500+ stores across India.

In India, the iPhone 8 is priced at Rs 64,000 for the 64GB model and Rs 77,000 for the 256GB model. The iPhone 8 Plus, on the other hand, is priced at Rs 73,000 for the 64GB variant, while the 256GB storage variant costs Rs 86,000, slightly less than the iPhone X, which is priced at Rs 89,000.
iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, both come with a glass body. Apple claims that the glass finish is made using a seven-layer color process for precise hue and opacity. While the choice of materials has changed, the new phones are still water and dust resistant. Overall though, there’s hardly anything exciting in terms of design.

The new 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch screens feature True Tone that promises to deliver natural colors. The company claims that these screens have the best color accuracy in the industry.
Both the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus are powered by Apple’s new A11 Bionic chips. Games will be delighted to know that the new chips deliver up to 30 percent better faster graphics performance than the previous generation SoC.

In terms of photography, the iPhone 8 Plus gets a 12 MP dual-camera setup. So, you can snap some pictures with bokeh effects. The iPhone 8 has a more conventional single lens camera. These phones can record 4K video up to 60 fps and 1080p slo-mo up to 240fps.

Apple has also introduced wireless charging tech on the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. These phones are compatible with Qi charging standards. While this is a good addition, Apple surely lost an opportunity to add any killer features.
