Cupertino: Keeping the new iPhone 12 series for a later launch, Apple on Tuesday introduced new Watch Series 6 with a revolutionary Blood Oxygen sensor in the Covid-19 times, a cheaper Watch SE for its aspirational fans and an iPad Air with industry-first A14 bionic chip.

Apple Watch Series 6 (GPS) starts at Rs 40,900 while Apple Watch Series 6 (GPS + Cellular) begins from Rs 49,900.

The cheaper Apple Watch SE starts at Rs 29,900 and the GPS+Cellular version begins from Rs 33,900.

The new iPad Air in 64GB and 256GB configurations and five colours will be available in October at the Apple Authorised Resellers.

The Wi-Fi models of iPad Air will be available at a starting price of Rs 54,900 and Wi-Fi + Cellular models start at Rs 66,900.

The company also introduced the eighth-generation 10.2-inch iPad with Retina display. Starting at just Rs 29,900, the iPad features the powerful A12 Bionic chip that brings the Neural Engine to the entry iPad for the first time.

The India availability of the newly-launched devices will be announced at a later date.

The iPad Air features an all-screen design with a larger 10.9-inch Liquid Retina display, camera and audio upgrades, a new integrated Touch ID sensor in the top button, and the powerful A14 Bionic for a massive boost in performance.

“Today we’re excited to introduce a completely redesigned and far more powerful iPad Air, debuting Apple’s most powerful chip ever made, the A14 Bionic,” said Greg Joswiak, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing.

“Along with major upgrades to the iPad Pro and eighth-generation iPad this year, and the powerful new features of iPadOS 14, this is our strongest iPad lineup ever, giving our customers even more ways to enrich their daily lives.”

Apple Watch Series 6 introduces a revolutionary Blood Oxygen feature as new coronavirus cases spread globally, especially in India.

Oxygen saturation, or SpO2, represents the percentage of oxygen being carried by red blood cells from the lungs to the rest of the body, and indicates how well this oxygenated blood is being delivered throughout the body.

“With powerful new features, including a Blood Oxygen sensor and app, Apple Watch becomes even more indispensable by providing further insight into overall well-being,” said Jeff Williams, Apple’s chief operating officer.

Apple Watch Series 6 houses a faster S6 System in Package (SiP) and next-generation always-on altimeter, along with its most colourful lineup yet, featuring a beautiful palette of new case finishes and bands.

The watchOS 7 brings Family Setup, sleep tracking, automatic handwashing detection, new workout types, and the ability to curate and share watch faces, encouraging customers to be more active, stay connected, and better manage their health in new ways, the company announced during its virtual launch event.

Apple said it is joining forces with researchers to conduct three health studies that include using Watch to explore how blood oxygen levels can be used in future health applications.

Apple Watch Series 6 uses a new dual-core processor based on A13 Bionic in iPhone 11, the upgraded S6 chip runs up to 20 per cent faster, allowing apps to also launch 20 percent faster, while maintaining the same all-day 18-hour battery life.

Apple Watch SE features a stunning Retina display, with thin borders and curved corners, that is 30 per cent larger than Series 3.

A variety of new Watch faces are optimised for the display, so customers can easily view notifications, text messages, workout metrics, and more.

With the S5 System in Package (SiP) and dual-core processor, the cheaper Apple Watch SE delivers incredibly fast performance, up to two times faster than Apple Watch Series 3.

The Digital Crown with haptic feedback generates incremental clicks with an extraordinary mechanical feel as it is rotated, Apple said.

The ban on PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds’ (PUBG) app created a stir
among the gaming creators and professional streamers in India. But the
gaming creators are already on a quest to shift focus from PUBG to
other games which can prove as alternatives.

This ban is expected to change the way India’s small but emerging game
streaming and the professional gaming community is creating content.
The video game wasn’t just played for entertainment but it was also a
source of income and fame for them.

There are a number of YouTubers who had different plans for their
subscribers to watch their game streaming. One way was through the
Super Chat feature on YouTube which connected the viewers to the
streamers by paying money to the streamer. It ranged from Rs. 40 to
Rs. 10,000.

There were also membership plans where they could buy membership to
see their favourite gamers playing PUBG, and even paying higher
amounts to read their names and comment.

While the revenue earned from game streaming is affected, the impact
can also be seen in the money coming from PUBG tournaments. For
example, PUBG Mobile India Tour, 2019 had a prize pool of Rs. 1.5
crore but viewers don’t have many options when it comes to gaming
content in India. So the big gamers will still have a niche audience
for themselves even when they shift to other games.

San Francisco: Epic Games has confirmed that the upcoming season of Fortnite will not be available to players on iPhones, iPads or Mac due to the company’s legal battle with Apple.

Fortnite was removed from the Apple App Store on August 13 for adding an in-app payment system in violation of the App Store rules.

“Apple is blocking Fortnite updates and new installs on the App Store and has said they will terminate our ability to develop Fortnite for Apple devices,” Epic Games said in a blog post on Wednesday.

“As a result, Fortnite’s newly released Chapter 2 – Season 4 update (v14.00), will not release on iOS and macOS on August 27”.

A US judge ruled earlier this week ruled that Apple cannot delete the developer account of Epic Games that support open and real-time 3D creation platform Unreal Engine but can keep the Fortnite game away from App Store for violating its policies.

She decided that Apple will not be required to bring the banned Fortnite game back to the App Store.

Apple welcomed the decision on the removal of Fortnite game, saying “it’s ready to welcome Fortnite back if Epic Games decides to remove the direct payment option and return to the status quo”.

“We agree with Judge Gonzalez-Rogers that ‘the sensible way to proceed’ is for Epic to comply with the App Store guidelines and continue to operate while the case proceeds”.

Launched in 2017, Fortnite features a battle royale format where 100 players compete to survive as the last player standing on a remote island.

San Francisco: Apple has removed at least 47,000 apps from its App Store in China to comply with the new policy from the state regulators.

According to a report in The Information, China may be closing the loopholes exploited by Apple in previous years, “starting with the recent removal of thousands of apps from the Chinese App Store”.

“The technology giant operates the App Store and many other services without government licenses and local partners in China. That has left it vulnerable to regulatory risk in China as Trump attacks TikTok and WeChat in the US,” the report said on Tuesday.

The US administration’s action against the Chinese behemoths like ByteDance (TikTok) and Tencent (WeChat) has fueld a new war between the two nations.

The Donald Trump administration has also tightened restrictions on Chinese conglomerate Huawei.

Last month, Apple removed at least 4,500 games from China’s App Store under the pressure from the Chinese government to comply with its Internet policies.

More than 3,000 games were removed from Apple’s China App Store in just two days, which is one of the biggest game purges on Apple’s App Store ever.

New regulations require game developers to gain approval from the Chinese regulators before uploading their apps in China’s Apple App store.

China is Apple’s biggest App Store market, with sales of $16.4 billion a year, according to data from Sensor Tower. In the US, the figures are $15.4 billion a year.

Apple currently hosts roughly 60,000 games in China that are paid for or have in-app purchases.

New Delhi: After going through disruptions in supply chain and curtailed domestic production, the India smartphone market is now showing encouraging signs of revival that sets it on a potential course for market recovery for over 40 per cent in the second half this year, according to a new report.

Over the short-term, the mobile market will improve in mid-Q3, spurred by early online sales festivals, setting the smartphone market on a potential path to recovery towards the all-important festive season.

During this period, smartphone brands will focus on showcasing their consumer-centric value propositions, focusing more on hyperlocal delivery models, and launching more 5G-ready smartphones, according to market research firm CMR’s ‘India Mobile Handset Market Review Report.’

CMR’s current estimates point to better performance for the India smartphone market in H2 2020, with the market anticipated to recover by more than 40 per cent in comparison to the first half.

“As a consequence of the pandemic, Q2 2020 was, in essence, a lost quarter. While the mobile handset industry faced multiple challenges with respect to their supply and demand-side dynamics, the industry looks set on the path to a potential recovery in the coming months,” said Amit Sharma, Manager-Industry Intelligence Group, CMR.

The initial consumer demand in the unlock phase was driven predominantly through online channels and driven by the need for urgent replacements.

“Facing up to the pandemic, smartphone brands debuted innovative hyperlocal delivery models, some of which have the potential to gain permanence,” Sharma added.

The path to potential recovery will be led by pent-up consumer demand, driven by the need for upgrades.

In the run-up to the festive season, consumers will seek to go for meaningful value propositions that bring devices and compelling content ecosystem offerings, together.

“This, coupled by smartphone brands bringing more value for money offerings and backed by aggressive messaging, will potentially drive the market,” said Sharma.

Thus far, a key challenge for the smartphone market in India to grow has been the inability to offer value propositions that will help feature phone users to migrate to smartphones.

“We believe recent announcements, such as the Jio-Google deal, augur well for the future of the mobile handset industry in India, and in potentially enabling the migration of feature phones to smartphone users, with its focus on driving affordability,” said analyst Anand Priya Singh.

Gurugram: Samsung on Thursday launched Galaxy M31s with 64MP Intelli-Cam and Single Take features in India starting from Rs 19,499 for the 6GB+128GB variant.

The 8GB+128GB memory device will cost Rs 21,499 and both the models will be available at Amazon.in, Samsung.com and select retail stores from August 6.

The device sports AMOLED Infinity O display, a powerful Quad camera with new sensor (IMX 682), 25W in-box fast charger, reverse charging and premium gradient design, the company said in a statement.

“The Galaxy M series has been designed ground-up in India and we are grateful to our consumers for making the brand so successful in such a short time. It will truly set the benchmark for camera performance in the mid segment,” said Asim Warsi, Senior Vice President, Samsung India.

Galaxy M31s has a 64MP quad-camera setup. The 12MP Ultra-Wide lens has a 123-degree field of view for capturing images. The dedicated 5MP Macro lens is for close-up shots while the 5MP depth lens is capable of taking portrait shots with live focus.

Galaxy M31s has 4K video recording capabilities and supports hyper lapse, slow-mo and super-steady modes.

In addition, Galaxy M31s has a dedicated night mode for great low light photography. The 32MP front camera also supports 4K video recording and slow-mo selfies.

For many consumers, the choice of video versus still photo can lead to their missing the key moment altogether. The “Single Take” feature takes the pressure off those split-second camera decisions, as it harnesses AI to capture different versions of the same moment, according to the company.

With “Single Take”, all the user has to do is press record at the right moment and Galaxy M31s will capture the footage, up to 10 seconds of it, and then use AI to produce up to 10 different outputs – seven photos and three videos.

The ‘Single Take’ feature is available on both the rear and front cameras. The device comes with side finger print scanner and fast face-unlock feature. Galaxy M31s will run Android 10 out of the box with Samsung’s new One UI for a smooth, lag-free experience.

San Francisco: Google is reportedly planning to launch Pixel 4a, the next series smartphone, on August 3, according to reports.

Tipster John Prosser, who also predicted the correct launch date of the iPhone SE, tweeted that the Google Pixel 4a launch date is going to be August 3.

“Finally happy to give a final update on Pixel 4a. The last date I gave you (provided in the tweet below) is the launch day. Pixel 4 August 3. 100 per cent, the only question is do you care anymore? Or have they pushed this off too much,” Prosser said.

The phone was earlier set to be unveiled during Google I/O 2020, the company’s annual developers conference, but the event was called off due to the coronavirus pandemic.

However, it is unclear whether the search engine giant will hold an online launch event for the Pixel 4a or not.

In terms of specifications, the device is likely to pack in the Snapdragon 730 chipset, which will be backed by 6GB of RAM, and 64GB non-expandable internal storage.

The device is expected to feature a 5.81-inch display, FHD+ with 1080 by 2,340-pixel resolution at 443 ppi. It is also worth noting that the screen appears to have a 60Hz refresh rate – not 90Hz.

The phone has been tipped to start selling at $399.

Beijing: After launch of mid-price series Nord, OnePlus is planning to launch OnePlus 8T and 8T Pro with a 64MP camera at the rear.

New strings found in the latest update of the OnePlus Camera app hint at support for 64MP main camera.

However, OnePlus is known for refreshing its flagship smartphone series in a short span of time.

New Delhi: South Korean major Samsung became the second largest smartphone brand with 26 per cent market share in India in the second quarter (April-June period) which is its highest share in the past two years, a new report said on Friday.

Amid stuttering supply for some major Chinese brands and the anti-China sentiment, Samsung gained big as pent-up smartphone demand after lockdown pushed the June volumes and the company was ready with full manufacturing capacity to meet the demand.

Samsung closely followed Xiaomi which logged 29 per cent market share to remain at the top in Q2.

Revamping the M-series and launching it in offline channels together with new schemes like Samsung Care+ helped the brand to further restore its position in the Indian market, according to Counterpoint Research’s ‘Market Monitor Service’.

Samsung also has a diversified supply chain compared to its competitors, which helped it to maintain a steady flow of components. It was the first brand to reach almost full manufacturing capacity by the end of June, the report mentioned.

“The contribution of Chinese brands fell to 72 per cent from 81 per cent in Q2 2020. This was mainly due to the mixture of stuttering supply for some major Chinese brands such as OPPO, Vivo and realme, and growing anti-China sentiment,” said Shilpi Jain, Research Analyst at Counterpoint.

It was compounded by stringent actions taken by the government to ban 59 apps of Chinese origin and delay the import of goods from China amid extra scrutiny.

Overall, the smartphone market declined a massive 51 per cent (year-on-year) to just over 18 million in Q2 as April was a washout.

The nationwide lockdown resulted in zero shipments during April.

“The pandemic wiped out almost 40 days of production as well as the sales of smartphones due to the nation-wide lockdown. The quarter was marred by both demand and supply constraints which led OEMs to rethink their go-to-market strategies,” said Prachir Singh, Senior Research Analyst at Counterpoint.

In June, the smartphone shipments registered a mild decline of 0.3 per cent (YoY) thanks to the pent-up demand as well as a push from brands.

Vivo with 17 per cent share at third spot was able to manage post lockdown demand well as it exited the quarter with 60 per cent pre-Covid levels.

The launch of flagship V19 and adding more smartphones like Y50, Y30 to its Y-series portfolio helped the brand to recover fast in June.

“Local manufacturing, R&D operations, attractive value-for-money offerings and strong channel entrenchment by Chinese brands leaves very few options for consumers to choose from. Additionally, in the era of globalization, it is difficult to label a product based on country of origin as components are being sourced from many different countries,” said Jain.

Realme maintained the fourth spot though its share declined to 11 per cent as it faced manufacturing constraints due to the shutdown of the factory for almost all of May.

New Delhi: Commerce and Industry Minister Piyush Goyal on Friday said that Apple has started manufacturing its highest-selling model iPhone 11 in India which is a significant boost to the Make in India initiative.

In a tweet, the minister said: “Significant boost to Make in India! Apple has started manufacturing iPhone 11 in India, bringing a top-of-the-line model for the first time in the country”.

Retail sources told IANS on Friday that there are few ‘Assembled in India’ units that have reached their stores. According to them, lockdown delayed the assembled iPhone 11 units to reach the market but now, there has been an increase in the supply.

However, there is no price cut and the MRP on locally assembled iPhone 11s remains the same as earlier, they added.

Currently, iPhone XR and iPhone 11 are being assembled by Foxconn at its Chennai manufacturing plant while iPhone 7 is being assembled by Wistron in Bengaluru.

Original iPhone SE and iPhone 6s were assembled by Wistron but those were discontinued in 2019.

Apple is also reportedly planning to assemble its new iPhone SE in India. The iPhone maker has already asked one of its suppliers in China to start shipping components for the iPhone SE 2020 to its manufacturing partner Wistron in India, reports AppleInsider.

Assembling the iPhones under the ‘Make in India’ initiative will help the company avoid the 22 per cent tax on its imported phones as per local manufacturing norms.

This news comes at a time when the Indian government has also started an initiative to increase manufacturing in the country.

Apple is reportedly seeking to shift roughly a fifth of existing China-based output to India.

Foxconn is also planning to invest up to $1 billion to expand its India operations.

Pegatron, the second-largest iPhone assembler after Foxconn, is also reportedly planning to invest in the country.

Union Electronics and Information Technology Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad recently exhorted the electronics industry to explore the new opportunities that are arising out of adversity and make the country the global hub of electronics manufacturing.

During a meeting with electronics industry associations, chambers and prominent industry players, Prasad asked the electronics industry to take advantage of the opportunity and new schemes notified by the ministry, attract global investment and strengthen the sector.

New Delhi: With the Covid-19 pandemic leading people to cut on discretionary spending, the India feature phone market declined 68 per cent (year-on-year in the second quarter this year, a Counterpoint Research report said on Friday.

Consumers in this highly cost-sensitive segment tried to save money by reducing discretionary purchases, said the report.

The nationwide lockdown imposed by the Indian government to combat Covid-19 resulted in zero shipments during April. This was also the time which saw a huge exodus of migrants from cities as many of them lost livelihood.

Itel remains the market leader in the feature phone market reaching its highest ever share of 24 per cent in the second quarter of 2020, said the report. Just a year ago, itel’s share was a mere 10 per cent in the same market.

The market share of home-grown company Lava went up from 12 per cent in Q2 of 2019 to 23 per cent in Q2 of 2020.

Samsung’s share in the India feature phone market reached 22 per cent in Q2 of this year, from 21 per cent a year ago.

They were followed by Nokia and Karbonn whose market share stood at nine per cent and five per cent, respectively.

Compared to the 68 per cent year-on-year decline in the shipment of feature phones in India in Q2 of 2020, India’s smartphone shipments declined by 51 per cent year-on-year in the same period.

Moreover, Jio-Google’s recently announced partnership to bring a highly affordable 4G Android smartphones may further impact the feature phone market in India which is home to more than 350 million feature phone users.

The growing anti-China sentiment due to border tensions in Ladakh has “given a window of opportunity for brands like Samsung and local Indian brands such as Micromax and Lava, to recapture market share,” according to Shilpi Jain, the Research Analyst at Counterpoint Research.

Seoul: South Korean tech giant Samsung is reportedly considering selling smartphones without in-box chargers from as early as next year.

The smartphone maker is taking them out because many people already have chargers at home, reports Korean news site ETNews.

Dropping the charger is also going to result in major cost reductions for the South Korean giant.

“It may also enable the company to price its affordable devices even more aggressively”.

Additionally, no charger means Samsung can ship phones in a smaller box, potentially meaning big savings in distribution and other areas.

Samsung is not the only major phone manufacturer considering not to include a charger.

Multiple reports have suggested that Apple is also planning to stop offering power adapters and EarPods with future iPhone models and will ship the devices with just a charging cable.

Currently, the Cupertino-based tech giant ships iPhones with either an 18W power adapter or a 5W power adapter depending on device but now, with iPhone 12, the customer may need to purchase one separately from Apple or a third-party company.

Analyst have also said that the iPhone 12 price may start $50 higher even without EarPods or charger in the box.

New Delhi: Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S6 Lite arrived in India just when you desired it the most. Your school-going children perhaps never truly needed a device like this than they require now because of the online classes that have become the norm for quite some time now.

Neither did you thanks to the disruptions brought about by Covid-19.

Of course, there are other tablets in the market. And the best among all in the Android universe is widely believed to be the Tab S6 Lite’s costlier sibling, Galaxy Tab S6.

What, however, sets Tab S6 Lite apart from others is its ability to pack a gamut of useful features at almost half the price of Galaxy Tab S6.

Samsung launched two variants of Tab S6 Lite in India – the Wi-Fi variant at Rs 27,999 and the LTE version at Rs 31,999. It is available in three colours — Oxford Gray, Angora Blue and Chiffon Pink.

We used the LTE version in Oxford Gray for some time to understand its pros and cons.

Despite the affordable price tag, Samsung has not actually compromised on the look and functionalities of the tablet.

With slim bezels and metal back, it gives a premium feel in your hands when you hold it. The back of the device has a fine finish which ensures that the fingerprints that it picks do not appear tool bold to make a mess of the look.

The 4GB RAM device which runs One UI 2 on Android offers 64GB of internal storage plus the benefit of expanding the limit through a microSD card.

This suggests that Samsung has made efforts to address a major pain point of the users. Compared to this, the 10.2-inch iPad which is available in a similar price range offers just 32GB internal storage.

And this is not all. The inclusion of the S Pen within the affordable range really puts it ahead of others in the category. Its usage is more relevant now as it makes taking notes and drawing things a breeze on the 10.4-inch screen.

The right side of the tablet can magnetically attach the S Pen which is quite useful when carrying the device from one place to another and also to ensure that it is not displaced.

And the 5MP front camera is also good enough to make appearances suitable when you enter into video conferences from the comfort of your home during remote working.

The 8MP primary camera also does not disappoint on light balance if you want to use it for posting photos on social media. The only problem is that the flash option is there for the front camera, but not the rear camera.

The face-recognition system to unlock the device works well to give you quick access. To top it all, this device which weighs just 467 gm packs a powerful 7040mAh battery that can make the device run for days with moderate use once it is fully charged.

The dual speakers, tuned by AKG and Dolby Atmos, can enrich your session with YouTube videos or TV shows.

What, however, one misses is the sharpness of the Super AMOLED display that its costlier sibling offers.

Conclusion: Overall, with a strong battery, large display, good sound quality and the precision with which the S Pen takes your notes, the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite appears to offer a little more than what you could expect at this price point from Samsung.

This news comes at a time when the Indian government has also started an initiative to increase manufacturing in the country.

Apple is reportedly seeking to shift roughly a fifth of existing China-based output to India, which could equate to $40 billion in local manufacturing revenues over the next five years.

Apple has been assembling some of its phones in India for a while via its two manufacturers – Foxconn and Wistron. Wistron also assembled the original iPhone SE in the country until 2019. Foxconn makes iPhone XR in India.

The second-generation iPhone SE was launched in the country at a starting price of Rs 42,500, however, the device is sold at $400 (around Rs 30,400) in the US.

New Delhi: The much-awaited OnePlus 8 series which is being manufactured at the company’s factory in Noida, will be available in the Indian market by the end of this month, a top company executive confirmed on Wednesday.

Launched last month, the new flagship OnePlus 8 Pro and OnePlus 8 witnessed the delay in arrival owing to the COVID-19 lockdown.

According to Vikas Agarwal, General Manager of OnePlus India, the initial assessment of the OnePlus 8 series 5G has been very positive in the country.

“We are expecting it to transition into robust sales in the coming months. The OnePlus 8 series will be available in the Indian market by May end,” Agarwal told IANS.

“We have resumed operations in the Noida facility last week itself in line with the health safety regulations laid out by the government,” he added.

Aligned with the government-issued health safety directives and advisory, the company has resumed its doorstep repair service across six cities – Bengaluru, Delhi, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Pune and Chennai.

“In addition to this, we have resumed services in our standalone customer service centres in 18 cities as of now, while aligning with the government advisory and guidelines on health safety measures,” informed the OnePlus executive.

OnePlus 8 series 5G received an immensely positive response globally including in the US, Europe and China markets.

OnePlus 8 Pro with 8GB/128GB will cost Rs 54,999 and the top-end model of the phone with 12GB/256GB will be available for Rs 59,999 in India.

The compact OnePlus 8 base variant with 6GB/128GB will come for Rs 41,999, while the top-end model of the phone with 12GB/256GB will cost Rs 49,999.

There is also an 8GB/128GB version of the OnePlus 8 that will be available for Rs 44,999.

Agarwal said that the India R&D team has contributed significantly towards innovative product development for the OnePlus 8 flagship series globally.

“These include innovations across OxygenOS, camera features, 5G network optimisations and much more. A lot of these innovations were also a result of our community co-creation efforts, wherein we work closely with beta testers to acquire valuable feedback on how to improve and further innovate on the product design and overall user experience,” he elaborated.

As a consumer-centric brand, OnePlus has always implemented unique initiatives to engage with its consumers while also offering them a truly premium experience.

Since the brand’s inception in India in December 2014, OnePlus has achieved several milestones, said Agarwal, and has grown to become a leading premium smartphone player in India.

“With our growing business success in the Indian market, OnePlus has been increasingly investing in India in line with its commitment to delve deeper into its ‘Make in India‘ strategy,” he added.

While the manufacturing sector witnessed a slowdown, recent government directives to begin relaxing restrictions have led to manufacturing operations in India picking up momentum.

“We are confident that we will soon overcome this situation, and regain normalcy in due time while ensuring that we protect our employees’ health through necessary precautionary measures,” said Agarwal, adding that they are currently exploring new, innovative formats with the partners to provide a seamless experience to customers using the omnichannel approach.

New Delhi: Want to buy a phone offline, but do not want to step out of your house? No problem. Vivo India on Sunday launched a smart retail system that lets people do just that in light of the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions which starts to lift in green and orange zones.

With this new system, interested buyers need to send their queries to Vivo via SMS, the company’ website or its Facebook page and one of the of 30,000 Vivo brand ambassadors (VBAs) will connect with the person to understand their requirements and help him/her buy the phone from one of the 20,000 retailers in India.

The SMS-based connectivity is already operational, while the other two platforms will be available to customers before May 12, according to Vivo India.

“Majority of consumers in India still prefer to buy offline. However, considering lockdown and the post lockdown scenario, some consumers may be wary of stepping out. So we have developed a platform which meets the needs of the customers and also helps the retails resume their business as usual,” Nipun Marya, Director Brand Strategy, Vivo India, told IANS.

“There is a lead management system that we have set up. Before passing the lead on to the retailer, at our end we will check if this lead is hot lead, qualified lead or this customer is not interested. In case it is a hot lead or a qualified lead which means this customer really wants a phone, then we will tell the retailer the requirement and request them to close the transaction,” Marya said.

This system is only for those who do not want to go out to buy a phone due to some concerns. Those who want to go out and buy a phone, they will still be able to do it.

But given that manufacturing remained closed in April, how does the company plan to meet the demand?

Our channels always carry some days of inventory. Both at the retail level and distributor level, there is always some inventory build-up which is there.

“How much inventory and how many days they will last depends on what kind of demands we get and how soon we get that demand and what are the instructions given by the authority with respect to our manufacturing plants and other things,” Marya said.

“In a few days time we will get to know what kind of demand we are getting and we will know how long whatever limited inventory we have will last. That we will get to know once the market starts to reopen.

“On the manufacturing side also, we are waiting for more details from the government. Once these details are available we will take further calls,” he said.

New Delhi: Apple has increased the price of some of its high-end iPhone models in India owing to an increase in customs duty on imported mobile phones and chargers along with social welfare surcharge in the Union Budget 2020.

The price hike on iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max models along with iPhone 8 will be effective from Monday.

Since iPhone XR and iPhone 7 are being assembled in India by Apple supplier Foxconn and Wistron, there is no price change on these hot-selling models.

The company has also exempted the popular iPhone 11 and iPad, Apple Watch and Mac desktops from any price hike.

The iPhone 11 Pro Max 64 GB will now be priced Rs 1,11,200, while the 256 GB model will be at Rs 1,25,200 and the 512 GB version at Rs 1,43,200.

Earlier, the iPhone 11 Pro Max price started at Rs 1,09,900.

The iPhone 11 Pro 64 GB version will be priced Rs 1,01,200, 256 GB at Rs 1,15,200 and iPhone 11 Pro 512 GB at Rs 1,33,200. The iPhone 11 Pro earlier used to start at Rs 99,900.

The iPhone 11 Pro Max 64 GB will now be priced Rs 1,11,200.

The price hike is about Rs 1,300 on iPhone 11 Pro series.

The iPhone 8 prices have also gone up.

The iPhone 8+ 64GB model is now at Rs 50,600, 128GB at Rs 55,600 — up about Rs 700 from the earlier starting price of Rs 49,900. The iPhone 8 64 GB will cost Rs 40,500 and 128 GB at Rs 45,500.

Unlike the assumption, the coronavirus impact in China which has put stress on the production and supply of some Chinese brands has nothing to do with Apple, according to industry sources.

The price hike is solely on the bases of customs duty hike on imported mobile phones and chargers.

Mobile phones were earlier exempted from 10 per cent service welfare cess but it will now be re-imposed on imported handsets over and above existing 20 per cent basic customs duty in India.

The government has increased the import duty on PCBA (printed circuit board assembly) from 10 per cent to 20 per cent and chargers from 15 per cent to 20 per cent.
