Dear Friends,

I’m planning to upgrade to iPhone 12 from my current POCO F1, It’s been 2.5 years since I’m using it, and started facing a couple of problems. The current MRP is ₹84,900 for the 128GB variant, after the HDFC CC discount it would cost around ₹79K.

Please help with -

  • Is it a good time to purchase iPhone 12 or should I wait for the new year/republic sale because HDFC is already giving 6k.
  • When we can expect the price cut, possible when the next phone will be launched.
  • Any additional offers like SmartBuy or an affiliate we can combine with HDFC?
  • I have travel plans to Dubai in February, Is it advisable to purchase from there? How much we can save and any custom/taxes?

Thanks in advance for your help.

If you can wait, then yes of course you should. iPhone 12 has launched just a month back and has not seen any discount from MRP till date. Besides, 79k is a ridiculous amount of money for any mobile phone irrespective of your income level. I also plan to purchase one next year but when offers come and price becomes around 50k or something. If corona blows over by summer (which I highly doubt though) then we may see a sale by August next year, when iPhone 13 may launch. If you must purchase a new phone now, then go for it utilising the bank cashback offer but if you can wait then you should.

If you are going to Dubai then it would be much cheaper there. But I heard some Factime issues and whatnot, not that I know or care what Facetime even is.

Thank you so much, buddy.

Much helpful, I think I can easily wait till March/April will take a call post that.
Would be great if any limited-time drop/discount comes!

But 5G is scheduled to be launched by end of 2021 so considering the amount of investment shouldn’t we get the 5G enabled phone?

4g is not working properly, 5g will take even more time for perfect implementation..

u can go for iPhone 12 but iPhone 11 pro is better phone than it, except 5G facility..

and iPhone 12 pro would be more expensive than both of them..

Is the Indian version of iPhone 12 even getting 5G? There’s some confusion about that since people are saying iPhone 12s sold in India won’t get 5G and are still getting charged for it.
Anyway 5G battery backup is insanely shyt on them, especially with lower battery capacity than even iPhone 11. Better to wait for iPhone 13.
