Waiting for the Apple iPhone X? We can feel your excitement and anxiety from here. We understand; we’re just four days away from the start of its preorder period — and more than a week from its November 3 release. Will you be able to snag one, considering it’s expected to be in short supply at launch? More importantly, is your bank account ready to part with your money?
You know this is Apple’s most expensive iPhone yet, coming in at $999 or approximately P51,447. But as with other goods, prices of the device will depend on where you are.
Quartz compared the cost of the the Apple iPhone X 64GB variant in countries and territories where it will be available. Here’s one of the tables the site came up with.
|Country||Local Price||USD Price|
|Finland, Ireland, Portugal||1,179 €||1,388.69|
|Czech Republic||29,990 Kč||1,377.02|
|Belgium, France, Netherlands, Spain||1,159 €||1,365.13|
|Austria, Germany||1,149 €||1,353.35|
You may notice that the iPhone X is cheapest in the United States and most expensive in Hungary at about P75,000. But don’t take everything at face value, so to speak; the prices listed on Apple Stores may or may not include sales tax.
As Quartz pointed out, the one in Hungary already incorporates that — in places “where the sales tax is the same in all areas, Apple’s prices typically include tax in the total amount.” However, it’s a different case for the U.S., where tax varies by state. So that $999? It can go as high as $1,100 (P56,659). Still significantly less than the price of the iPhone X in Hungary. But $100 (P5,152) is still $100.
Apple’s 10th anniversary iPhone is the company’s first handset to be completely redesigned in three years. It has a nearly bezel-less 2,436 x 1,125 OLED display with a notch up top. It boasts glass-and-steel bodywork and features Face ID in place of Touch ID — enabled by Apple’s TrueDepth camera. And it has Apple’s True Tone technology, which automatically adjusts the screen to offer better colors and supports HDR for brighter and bolder picture.
