This was confirmed through a series of reports late last week, including one from The Economic Times that hinted that the iPhone 5 launch in India was supposed to take place on Friday, October 26 before being moved to the following Friday. Another interesting note to the aforementioned report was regarding Apple’s iTunes and App Store billing in Indian rupees rather than US dollars as was previously the case.
There will be a total of nine countries included in the November 2 release schedule. Aside from the three countries mentioned above, the iPhone 5 will be released on that date in Bulgaria, Croatia, the Dominican Republic, Malta, Romania and Thailand. The most-anticipated iPhone 5 release schedule, however, will take place in December as the device will be released that month in China.
Official iPhone 5 sales figures have yet to be announced, but the handset had set rollout sales records within its first few days of release.
The iPhone 5 features a 4.0-inch Retina Display screen with a remarkable 326 pixels-per-inch density, a super-fast A6 dual-core processor, 1 GB RAM, an 8-megapixel rear camera, FaceTime front camera and Apple’s new proprietary Lightning dock connector. The most affordable iPhone 5 with 16 GB internal storage sells for $199 in the United States on a two-year contract. Other storage options include 32 GB ($299) and 64 GB ($399).
