iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus May Be Available on Zero Downpayment
Reliance Communications seems to be gearing up to introduce Zero Plan offers for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in India.

The telecom operator's listing for Zero Plan offers for the new iPhones have been spotted ahead of any official announcement, detailing zero downpayment plans.

According to the official listings on the Reliance's eShop (first spotted by Telecom Talk and now removed), the iPhone 6 will be available at Rs. 3,099 per month for 24 months, while the iPhone 6 Plus will come at Rs. 3,599 per month for 24 months. There are no details about which storage variant available under Rcom's Zero Plan, but the per month pricing translates to a total of Rs. 74,376 over two years for the iPhone 6, and Rs. 86,376 over two years for the iPhone 6 Plus.

To put that in perspective, Apple earlier this month launched the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus smartphones - launching the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 at Rs. 53,500 for the 16GB variant, Rs. 62,500 for the 64GB variant, and Rs. 71,500 for the 128GB variant; and the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus at Rs. 62,500 for the 16GB variant, Rs. 71,500 for the 64GB variant, and Rs. 80,500 for the 128GB variant.

While the Reliance Communications listings were still live, the 'Buy Now' buttons at the Rcom's eShop listing for both the new iPhones were not activated; hinting that the telecom operator might be still busy finalising the terms. Further, one of the options below Zero Plan of the iPhone 6 listing still refers iPhone 5s.

Some of the benefits listed by Reliance Communications for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus Zero Plans include zero downpayment on the iPhone; zero bills for next 24 months; zero limits on data, voice, SMS, and roaming, and zero hidden charges.

Under Reliance's Zero Plan, a consumer can buy the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus under a 24 months contract, and it won't require consumers to make any downpayment. However, we have to still wait for the official announcement.

It's worth noting that Reliance Communications had last year as well introduced a similar offer where consumers could buy the 16GB iPhone 5s at a monthly fee of Rs. 2,999 and 16GB iPhone 5c at a fee of Rs. 2,599 at zero upfront cost.

The iPhone 6 has a new 4.7-inch 750x1334-pixel screen, while the iPhone 6 Plus's screen measures 5.5 inches and has a resolution of 1080x1920 pixels. The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are 6.9 and 7.1mm thick respectively. Both phones have been upgraded with high-speed Wi-Fi 802.11ac support and support the TD 2300 LTE band used in India. iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have an 8-megapixel rear camera and a 1.2-megapixel front camera, with improved sensors when compared with the iPhone 5s. The phones feature the new Apple A8 processor and a motion co-processor labelled M8. Apple promises that both devices will provide better battery life than the iPhone 5s.
