Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has released an even cheaper variant of its iPhone 5C in Europe. The company has released a variant of its iPhone 5C in Europe which only has 8GB of onboard storage. The new variant of the affordable iPhone version appeared on the website of UK carrier O2, as well as some of Apple’s European stores.
Other than less the storage capacity, the 8GB iPhone 5C gets the same specifications as the 16GB and 32GB versions. It’s equipped with a 4-inch retina display, powered by an A6 processor and an 8-megapixel camera. Even though it has started to show up online in Europe, the 8GB iPhone 5C isn’t available on the official Apple US website just yet.
Pricing for the device is still uncertain since price different from each site that the handset has appeared on so far. O2 prices it at least 50 pounds ($83) cheaper than the 16GB variant, depending on the contract. On Apple’s UK site, the phone is 40 pounds cheaper ($67) than the 16GB variant sans contract; in Germany, the price difference is 50 euros ($70). Mashable reports.
The new price of the iPhone 5C might just means that Apple has been rethinking the pricing structure of what should have been a low-cost iPhone.
