In a bid to compete against the Reliance Jio which recently introduced buyback offers on iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone, Bharti Airtel is bringing the iPhone X to its online store from November 3.
According to a report from ET Telecom, the telecom operator will offer iPhone X bundled along with some Airtel plans on its newly launched online store. “A mad scramble for the device is expected amongst the die-hard iPhone loyalists in India. And given limited stocks of iPhone X available globally, the Airtel Online Store will be amongst the handful of platforms in India for the early birds to get their hands on the device,” a senior executive told ET Times.
Airtel has not commented on this yet. The move aims to take on Jio that offers up to 70 per cent buyback on Apple’s latest iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X. Buyer can enroll for the buyback by entering the IMEI number and phone number for your iPhone. The offer is applicable for iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X bought from RRL Store, Jio.com, MyJio or Amazon.in.
