It’s been almost two months since Apple announced the iPhone 5, but the smartphone has yet to arrive in some markets.
However, starting November 2, the list of countries where the iPhone 5 is not yet available will be a bit shorter as Apple has just confirmed the device will arrive in India on that date.
Indian retailer Infibeam already announced it would offer the iPhone 5 in early November, along with major carrier Aircel. Unfortunately, no release date has been unveiled until today.
Redington is the company that has just confirmed the iPhone 5 will be available for purchase at its trade stores and retail outlets in India starting November 2.
Customers will be able to purchase the iPhone 5 16GB for Rs 45,500 (845 USD or 655 EUR), while the 32GB version will be up for sale for Rs 52,500 rupees (975 USD or 755 EUR), and finally the 64GB model will be available for Rs 59,500 rupees (1,105 USD or 855 EUR).
The thinnest iPhone smartphone launched by Apple, iPhone 5 features a larger 4-inch Retina display and a brand new Apple-designed A6 chip, allowing blazing fast performance. As expected, iPhone 5 ships with iOS 6 platform out of the box.
Furthermore, the iPhone 5 supports some of the fastest wireless standards including LTE and DC-HSDPA, allowing users to download and stream content faster than ever.
On the back, the smartphone boasts an impressive 8-megapixel iSight camera, which features a sapphire crystal lens cover with the ability to provide crystal-clear images.
The rear camera also features new video capabilities, such as improved stabilization, video face detection for up to 10 faces and the ability to take still photos while recording.
Last but not least, iPhone 5 comes with the new Lightning connector, which is smaller, more durable and much faster than the previous connector.
