Update news iPhone 8
VietNamNet Bridge - Used iPhone XRs, sourced from the US, are now available at many private shops. However, the high price is unattractive to users.
Dang Thanh Phong from The Gioi Di Dong has confirmed with Nguoi Lao Dong that the leading mobile phone distribution chain in Vietnam has stopped selling the iPhone 8 because of the slow sales of the model.
Authorized resellers are selling iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus at quoted prices, while second-class agents are setting lower prices to lure more buyers. The price of products imported through unofficial channels is even lower.
VietNamNet Bridge - More than half of the purchases of premium smartphones (costing more than VND10 million) are paid by installment plans.
VietNamNet Bridge - iPhone X brought to Vietnam across border gates are being offered at record-high prices.
VietNamNet Bridge - Uninterested in iPhone 8 and hesitant about the high price, many Vietnamese are choosing to buy the iPhone 7.
FPT Shop, the direct importer of Apple iPhones and iPads in Vietnam, has announced that iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X will be available in Vietnam by the end of October or early November and priced from VND20.99 million.
The iPhone 7 is expected to make its global debut on Wednesday, but many consumers and investors are already setting their sights on Apple Inc's (AAPL.O) 2017 version of the popular gadget, hoping for more significant advances.
