After getting 4 million pre-orders for the newly launched iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus on the first day, Apple Inc has already announced that customers in the U.S. will have to wait until next month for their new iPhones.

Earlier, on September 9, the Apple India website said that the new iPhone 6 would be available on September 26 in India. Later, the India availability was shown as October 17.

The Indian Express contacted official Apple retailers in India like Croma, Vijay Sales and iWorld to get an insight on the India availability of the iPhone 6. While Croma and iWorld had no clue about it, an executive at Vijay Sales said the possibility of iPhone 6 being available in October is very low and they are expecting it to arrive some time in mid-November at a starting price of around Rs 55,000 to Rs. 60,000. On the other hand, the iPhone 6 Plus will available at a starting price of Rs. 65,000. The India price of both the devices are yet to be announced officially.

Meanwhile, Samsung is looking confident to launch its upcoming Galaxy Note 4 before Diwali. The market is expecting the Galaxy Note 4 to be priced somewhere around Rs. 45,000.

                    its very easy to comment other people with above quote if you have bunch of easy earning / black money. definitely its price higher then other device but to spend 65 k bucks on mere mobile give a thought buddy.
