Let’s kick off this dialogue by reminding you, the readers, that Father’s Day is upon us — June 18, so this would be the perfect time to start scouting for gifts. If nothing comes to mind almost immediately then you should know that Flipkart already has you covered. It is kicking off some sweet offers to help you out with shopping for the said celebrations.
The homegrown e-commerce giant has today started teasing a brand new offer on Apple iPhone 6 (16GB variant) in wake of Father’s Day celebrations. Flipkart has not yet revealed the offer pricing for the device and is mysteriously hiding the same by eliminating a numeral from the price tag, which now looks like this — ₹2_,999. This offer kicks off tomorrow, i.e. June 8 and will run until June 10. The message in the advert reads as under:
To The World’s Best Dad! iPhone 6 (16GB) at just Rs 2_,999.
Currently, the 16GB iPhone 6 variant is available for as low as ₹24,999 for the Space Grey color on Flipkart. This means it has been discounted 32 percent over its retail price of ₹36,990. This is, however, just the case with the said color variant, other color variants of the iPhone 6 are only available at prices higher than the aforementioned discounted price. The 16GB Silver iPhone 6 is being sold at the retail price whereas the 16GB Gold variant is presently out of stock.
Apple’s iPhone 6 was first unveiled way back in 2014 and can now easily be considered an out of date device — but still a viable option. It comes packed with a 4.7-inch LED-backlit IPS LCD display, which may not satisfy the phablet-sized needs of today’s audience. It includes a 1,810 mAh battery, which is sufficient enough for this device.
Under the hood, it is powered by Apple’s A8 dual-core processor clocked at 1.4GHz — it is now expected to unveil A11 processor at its hardware event scheduled for September end. It sports an 8-megapixel rear camera with autofocus and 1.2-megapixel selfie camera. It features 4G LTE support, Bluetooth 4.0, AirPlay, Wi-Fi and other connectivity features.
The device was launched in three storage variants — 16GB, 32GB and 64GB, all coupled with 1GB of RAM. The Cupertino giant has now moved on from offering the said minimal storage option and the present range starts at 32GB internal storage variants. So, go buy your father this brand spanking new device, which will be available for a steal tomorrow on Flipkart. It will surely be a bang for the buck, if you ask me!
