iPhone 6 & iPhone 6 Plus To Launch In China On October 10

Those who live in China will be very happy to know that Apple's iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus will be available on sale in China on October 10. According to a new report from TechWeb [Google Translate], Apple's retail stores will receive their training material on October 7.

Unlike the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c that hit China, the United States and other key markets simultaneously, this time around Apple’s delayed launch in China due to the regulatory approval process tang longer than expected.

AppleInsider says the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus should sell for ¥5,288 ($863) and ¥6,288 ($1,026), respectively. This would put the price of the 4.7-inch handset on par with the starting price as last year’s iPhone 5s.
A customer in China paid ¥5,288 yuan ($863) for an iPhone 5s up front, with a two-year contract for the top monthly plan giving customers a monthly rebate of ¥194 ($31.66).

The subsidy covered 88 percent of the handset’s price, so the user paid ¥632 ($103.15) for the phone by the end of the contract.

 The new policy would have people pay ¥4,488 ($732.50) up front for a 16GB iPhone 5s, with a monthly discount on voice service of ¥136 ($22.20).

 The delay in the official introduction of the new handsets in China, coupled with grey imports, have catapulted iPhone 6 prices in the local black market into the stratosphere, reaching as much as ¥11,641 ($1,900) and ¥19,912 ($3,250) for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, respectively.
