Apple Continues Sales of the iPhone 4 in China
With the introduction of the iPhone 5C and 5S, Apple killed off the iPhone 5 and 4 in most places, instead choosing to keep the iPhone 4S around. Turns out the iPhone 4 isnít quite dead just yet though as the company will continue to offer it in China according to MacRumors
. This is in line with what KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicted earlier this year when he said Apple would keep the iPhone 4 on sale in China.
As the largest smartphone market on the plan, the ability to sell an iPhone model at the lowest price possible is something that will come in very handy for Apple. With the continuation of iPhone 4 sales in the country, they can offer Chinese customers an iPhone for 2588 RMB, or $423 USD without contract. The iPhone 5C costs the equivalent of $700 USD in China.
The iPhone 4 model that continues to be sold in China is the 8 GB version and is sold in black or white.
