The craze of Apple is always constant, regardless of the country or the currency. The russian fans of Apple are eagerly waiting for the 2 new device launch in Russia and here we are with some exclusive information about the availability and price of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus in Russia.
Russia has always been a country experiencing huge delay in iPhone launch. Most of the times, Russians had to wait for months since the day when Apple products went on sale in the United States. However, this time, it might just be a record breaking stuff for the Russians because they will not have to wait so much before the iPhone sale starts in their own country.
iPhone 6 / iPhone 6 plus release date in Russia
According to the rumors and a few official sources, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus would go on sale from September 26th. As I told earlier, this would be a record breaking launch in Russia considering that Apple products took months to launch in Russia after the official launch and availability in the US.
Sergei Tikhonov, spokesperson for mobile retailer Svyaznoi told “the one-week gap is a record for Russia: “3 to 4 years ago … the official start of Apple sales in our country took place about 4-5 months after the world premier [of a new iPhone]. Now … it is a little more than two weeks.”
So, Russian fanatics of Apple products, get ready to become one of the first countries to experience the big screen iPhone.
iPhone 6 / iPhone 6 plus price in Russia
iPhone 6 and 6 plus are going to cost more as compared to the US prices. There are rumors that the devices would cost at least $200 more as compared to the without contract price in the United States.
However, no private carrier company has come forward to launch iPhone 6 in Russia with a contract, so it might just be a little costlier and handy for the Russians when iPhone 6 finally becomes available for them.
Stay tuned for more updates.
