Apple Watch arrives in India next week, the Apple iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus early next month
The Apple Watch will finally make its debut in India next week, according to a new report coming out of the country. The smartwatch originally launched in certain countries (including the U.S.) back in April. Those familiar with a closed door meeting that Apple reportedly had with its trade partners on Wednesday, say that Apple will then launch the Apple iPhone 6s and Apple iPhone 6s Plus in India during the first half of next month.

If Apple launches the new iPhones in India on October 11th, like it supposedly said during the closed door meeting, it would be slightly over a month since the new iPhones were introduced on September 9th. That would set a record in the country, for the fastest launch of an Apple product from the time it was announced. The iPhone 6s is expected to be priced in India at the equivalent of $820 USD, while the iPhone 6s Plus could go for more than $936 USD.

During the meeting, Apple is also alleged to have said that it wants to triple sales of the new iPhone models in the country during the fourth quarter. Apple is going to continue competing with Samsung in India's market for high-end smartphones. With the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ already released in the country, the Samsung Galaxy Note5 will be launched in the market on September 20th. From January through June, Samsung led Apple in market share of high-end phones in India by a margin of 56% to 35%.

But putting out the same phone for 4 years with slight internal changes is innovation.

If I follow your currency it will cost me ₹53k in my country. But both pricing are still considered rip-off anyway.

Since Xiaomi already set up a factory in India and became a priority country aside from China when launching their latest, apple will have a hard time wooing the mass population.
