No matter how expensive iPhone 11 is, its die-hard fans would never go away for some Android phone. There is a piece of good news for them; Apple is once again hiring a major distributor for its latest lineup of iPhones.
A source privy to the matter confirmed that Apple is in talks with Airlink Communication for awarding distribution rights in Pakistan.
Airlink, which is also a partner of Huawei and Samsung, has recently entered into a partnership with Tecno mobiles – a Chinese brand that primarily plays in the entry-level segment. With Apple on board, the distribution company will have a blend of budget and most premium phones.
We are not sure if Airlink Communication plans to part ways with Huawei, which is too early to say at this time even though Huawei is experiencing a drop in sales due to absence of Google’s PlayStore in its phones. But, analyst believe, it could be a preemptive measure by the distribution company.
As per reports, the first import in Pakistan may arrive by the end of October. It is yet unclear which version from the three variants will have the major share since the prices in PKR for all three models are incredibly high.
PTA recently approved retail prices for iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max that start from PKR 209,900 for the most economical model (iPhone 11 64GB) and go as high as PKR 357,900 for the biggest variant (iPhone 11 Pro Max 512GB). However, we are pretty hopeful the prices of the iPhone variants will be different when they arrive officially in the coming months.
