Apple launches red iPhone 7, 7 plus
Apple Inc on Tuesday unveiled a blood-red iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 plus, refreshing its more profitable device mid-cycle one week before rival Samsung releases its Galaxy S8.
Like earlier red hued products on the Cupertino-based company’s lineup, a portion of sales from the blood-red iPhones will be used to help fund HIV/ AIDS research, Apple said on its website.
The blood-red iPhones will have the same internals and pricing tiers as the black, gold, silver-tongued, rose gold and jet black that were launched late last year. The base storage, however, will start at 128 gigabytes like the jet black version.
It will be available in the US starting on March 24. There was no immediate word on local availability.
Samsung’s Galaxy S8 is expected to launch with a screen that occupies nearly the entire front of the device and face acceptance technology for mobile payments, features that are missing from the present iPhone line.
Phone producers have been launching more colorful flagships. Google’s Pixel and Pixel XL comes in a bright” truly blue” option while Huawei’s P1 0 and P10 Plus will be available in “greenery” and” dazzling blue ,” designed by Pantone.
