32GB Apple iPhone 6 (2017) to launch in Europe next week wearing Space Gray
Last week, we told you that Taiwan Mobile had launched the 32GB Gold Apple iPhone 6, which has been dubbed the iPhone 6 (2017). Since the original Apple iPhone 6 was released with 16GB/64GB/128GB of storage, Apple filled in the gap by offering a model with 32GB of storage, and is issuing the phone as a limited edition. The device isn't being offered by Apple, nor is it available at the Apple Store or online.

Taiwan Mobile is offering the iPhone 6 (2017) in Gold only, for the equivalent of $435 USD; iOS 10 is pre-installed, compared to iOS 8 which came out of the box with the original model. Now, the device moves to Europe where it will be available next week in the country of Belarus. Unlike the version sold in Taiwan, the iPhone 6 (2017) will be sold in Belarus wearing Space Gray only. It will go on sale at the i-Store in Minsk, priced at the equivalent of $522 USD. This pricing could attract some buyers to the device in the country, since a similarly equipped Apple iPhone 6s is priced at the equivalent of $798 USD, and a refurbished 16GB version of the Apple iPhone 6 is priced at the equivalent of $626 USD.

Apple is not talking much about this device, which means it isn't clear exactly where it will end up next. It could be that these two markets will complete the roll out. Regardless, we don't see the iPhone 6 (2017) making an appearance in the U.S.

Who knew Apple was greedy enough to reproduce 2014's model? Lol

Are you serious? It's $430 unlocked and still runs smoother than a new new android phone.

Apple didn't reproduce it, they're selling leftover stock to carriers. Carriers are the ones selling them to consumers. Plus, let's be real here, the iPhone 6 is probably a better buy than 95% of the "budget" Android phones you're gonna get. Plus despite it's age, it's got two more year's of updates ahead of it. Something not even Android flagships can bolster....

Apple made too many A8 SoCs, and since they can't sell enough iPhone SE's or iPhone 6's. They have to find more ways to clean out their old junk.

Kiko007 if you are going to compare Android to iOS then let's go all the way. Android can do real multitasking and even supports split screen nowadays. It can even give users a really great VR experience. These are things that are still missing from every iPhone. Not to mention lots of other things missing from iOS in general. Apple in 2017 is still releasing an iPhone 6 with a 32gb of storage instead of the 16 GB that it initially came with. It still has a low resolution display for a flagship device in this day and age. The A8 SoC is rated at 115.2 gigaflops. The A9 found in the iPhone 6s is rated at 172.8 gigaflops. The A10 found in the iPhone 7 is rated at 259 gigaflops. A Snapdragon 821 is rated at 519 gigaflops. When an iPhone can run with a QHD or higher and sustain 60 fps, then get back to me and let's talk shop again. Oh that, and run multiple things simultaneously.

Bruh....I just don't care. I was right, you were wrong. Stfu with that nerdy VR bulls**t, no one buys phones for that garbage. I know closing yourself off from the world is the only way you can cope with your meaningless existence, and that's fine. However, all the GFLOPS in the world can save Android from lagging, having s**ttier apps, and creating a generally lackluster UX at times. Hell, Android phones can't even maintain 60fps throughout their UI yet, and you're worried about VR? Lmfao......

This what you have to resort to, calling names and showing the world how ignorant you really are. Please continue to show the world your true colors. That and your lack of knowledge. Oh, btw I knew full well what SoC was in the iPhone SE. I was trying to show that the iPhone SE's are not selling well, and Apple is looking to sell off their old junk.

Look at the iPhone 6 has a 8mp 1080p video camera, a 1.2 MP front facing camera, and a low resolution 1334x750 display with 1 GB of RAM, cat 4 LTE, and now 32 GB of storage instead of the original 16 GB that it initially came with. Apple is flogging it's old crap. Anyone with half a brain would look at these specs and say, this phone is not worth what Apple is asking.

Nobody cares about VR or graphics? So I guess Apple should just go back to a non plus iPhone. Better yet, why is Apple coming out with a QHD or higher resolution display in their next iPhone? Hmmm. Yeah, we know in this article you want those things to be irrelevant until Apple supports them. This is Apple for you always following in Androids footsteps.

Iphone 6 smoother? are you taking crack or something Bucky?

smoother than a Samsung maybe but my LG G5 easily is faster all around and a much better buy ( you can easily get a brand new LG G5 for less than 400$ )

So no thanks you.

kiko007 can you stop acting like a freaking moron?

Seriously my LG G5 run at 60 fps 100% of the time on the UI and in EVERY single games i play.

Its never lag or even slowdown a bit.

My UI is customized to my liking and much better than anything anyone could do with an iphone ( cant put your calender as a full screen on one of your page and thats something very usefull for someone in business )

There is s**tty app on iphone as well lots of them same as android in fact only place apple still win for apps quality is on tablet thats i give it to you.

So take a chill pill and stop thinking all android world is like lagg mess shamesung.

I don't think Android is a laggy mess, but I don't see it as the second coming of Christ either. Moderation people.

And how the hell do you have a G6 already?

"My UI is customized to my liking and much better than anything anyone could do with an iphone"

That's nice, but I'm a grown man. I don't care much for "customization", I have better s**t to do with my time. If customization is something you crave a JB iPhone is just as good, if not better, because you can customize the entire Springboard.

"There is s**tty app on iphone as well lots of them same as android in fact only place apple still win for apps quality is on tablet thats i give it to you."

You misunderstood something. I didn't say all Android apps are s**tty, and I didn't say all iPhone apps are fantastic. But there is a distinct difference to be found in games, social media apps, and business portfolio ones as well. All of which a certainly better on iOS. So no, it isn't JUST tablet apps.

Edited i written G6 by mistake lol.

your a grown man wtf thats has to do with customization? I customize my phone to be more productive for WORK lol.

High end games available on both platform are usually on par with some exception by example the game world of tank blitz is a very demanding game thats can put on its knee a samsung S7 ( overheating throttling ) and its look a bit less nice on an iphone 7+ compared to my G5 ( probably because thats game have graphic options on android and not on iphone so i can push the graphic to the max and its end up looking better than the same game on iphone 7+)

Social media app its a mixed bag again sometime android app will have features before ios one sometime its the others way around.
business app on android are much more advanced as they can become integrated in your UI completely ( like calenders , office mobile and even app for worker on construction field ) there is also a lots of mobile management software available on android but very lil for ios there is also very advanced dispatching solution to dispatch work , do a full follow up and even localise your worker all in the same app on android and not yet on iphone.

You clearly dont work in the industry and i do sorry for you.
for games its still slightly toward apple but thats trend is going away very fast.

3 years ago apple app store was like 20 time better than android for ALL apps type.
Today its has some slight advantage but nothing major anymore.

Google play store is evolving and getting better at a much faster rate than apple app store go look at numbers profit ect.

Apple still make more profit but just a few years back its was like 5-7 time more profit now its 2 or 3 time max.

I thought you were an Android user (HTC to be precise) who is a fan of Apple and iOS?

I don't get it how you hate Android this much yet claim to be an Android user?

Yes. This is a great option for people to own an brand new iPhone for a low price. I bet this phone is better than 90% similarly priced lagdroid phones in the market.

I don't "hate" anything...... but fanboys. Apple users literally take s**t from everyone here all day long, but bruh gets s**t wrong and makes crap up and no one bats an eye. That pisses me off. Any legit Android fan knows that both platforms have strengths and weaknesses. Not Sgoodell or whatever his handle is. Hell, Techie proved to me today that the majority of the dudes here can't even read....

iOS has split screen since iOS 9. iOS had it natively before android. Until nougat, split screen on android was third party, or Samsung and LG. It's iPad specific.

Real? What new android are you talking about, budget phone? If mid range android phone high end android then obviously you still live under the rock since 2014.

You are such a liar. You are always one of the first on Android and Apple articles. Yet you are the first to pump up Apple and iOS, but in the same vein will cut up, and make derogatory in regards to Android, Samsung, Google, or anything related.

Yeah, kiko007 you have to pump up yourself. Now actually getting back to this iPhone 6. Because that is what this article is really about. If Apple charges around $400 or more for this device then it's really not worth it. Especially when you can get a brand new smartphone like a Moto G5 with a full HD (1920x1080) display, 13 MP 4k camera, 5 MP front facing camera, LTE 6, 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of expandable storage for $230. The iPhone 6 with HD (1334x750) display, 8 MP 1080p camera, 1.2 MP front facing camera, LTE cat 4, 1 GB of RAM, and now 32 GB of non expandable storage. So if Apple charges over $400 for this iPhone 6 with 32 GB of storage. Then they are getting ripped off, actually they would be getting ripped off at $300.

I said iPhone. Show me an iPhone with real multitasking and split screen. Also the iPads use a different SoC and have a much higher tdp. The iPads SoC have more cores and a GPU with more cores as well.

Keep on kidding yourself.

OnePlus 3T destroys the iPhone 6 (2017) in just about every way.

Because at least the Apple trolls have enough common sense not to make death threats, racial slurs, and lie about inanimate objects. Seriously, everyday the same six dudes rampage ANY Apple article with bulls**t rhetoric that, newsflash, no iOS user cares about.
