iPhone 12 mini price India expected to be ₹59,900?
The most anticipated phone of the year is around the corner, i’m pretty hiked up for the smallest iPhone which is expected to release after the iPhone 5s. Until now the flagship iPhones were a priced at a premium, this year Apple launching a 5.4 inch iPhone that is rumoured to be named as the iPhone 12 mini. As a result the price of the iPhone 12 mini in India is going to be considerably low. I’ll tell you why going forward.
- Apple is going to launch 4 new iPhone for the year 2020.
- iPhone 12 mini being the most affordable one of the lot.
- What can we expect the iPhone 12 mini to be priced in India?
The iPhone event postponed to October instead of the regular September. This year is going to be a major update to the iPhone line up.
Why iPhone 12 mini price in India going to be low?
Apple is going in full steam to capture the Indian market as much as possible.
The steps taken by the company in recent times make this even a stronger belief.
- Apple launched its own online store on September 23 of 2020 which allows the Indian consumers to buy their favourite iPhones, Mac, iPads and rest of the apple products directly from apple this allows the customers to build trust and buy the products without any fear.
- Apple also set up manufacturing lines to assemble the new iPhone 12 in India.
This all translates to one thing that Apple is gearing to sell more iPhones in India and make its footprint stronger in the worlds fastest-growing smartphone market. Hence to gain more market in India the iPhone 12 mini has to be priced at a reasonable price so that more and more people can get their hands on one. Or else Apple may provide certain cash-back right after the launch to bring down the prices indirectly.

Specs of the iPhone mini as per the leaks are:
|Display panel||OLED from BOE|
|Processor||A14 Bionic Hexa core ( 2 performance cores and 4 high-efficiency cores ) the same one found on the iPad Air 4|
|Storage||64, 128, 256 GB|
|Back Cameras||Dual-camera setup ( 12MP wide-angle and 12 MP ultra-wide-angle )|
|Front camera||12 MP wide-angle camera like the iPhone 11 with slight improvements.|
|Software version||iOS 14.1|
|In the box||iPhone and new braided lighting to USB-C Cable (no power brick and EarPods)|
Because of the smaller screen size, the iPhone 12 mini is going to get a smaller notch to provide some space for the status bar.
The iPhone 12 mini is going to be the highest selling Smartphone for the year 2020 – 21. We can say this by the popularity of the smaller sized iPhone SE 2020, which launched with Apple’s top of the line A13 bionic chip.
Most of the people still prefer smaller one-handed phones today.
Coming to the pricing for the Indian market
Apple iPhone 12 mini is expected to be priced at $650 to $700 in The US.
So in India, the simple calculation Apple does is multiple the US price with Rs.103/- and price the value in India right?
This was not the case last year with the iPhone 11 in India. iPhone 11 was priced at $700 internationally but in India, it was priced at Rs.64,900/-.
This shows Apple was eyeing more into the Indian market for a long time. iPhone 11 was priced Rs.5,000/- less according to the apple conversion.
Coming to the Pricing of the 2020 iPhone 12 mini in India, we can expect somewhere around Rs.59,900 to Rs.69,900/-. The pricing is not officially out yet, but this is what I think Apple would price the iPhone 12 mini in India.
