Apple iPhone XS, XS Max, iPhone XR Price in Nepal

After a lot of waiting, new 2018 Apple iPhones are now available in Nepal. Generation Next Communication (GENXT) is the official distributor of Apple products in Nepal and they have launched all the new models. iPhone XS, XS Max and iPhone XR now available in the Nepali market. These are very expensive phones and non of them is below Rs 1 Lakh. This makes it a very hard thing to recommend considering US price. In USA the Apple iPhone XR starts at $749 but in Nepal it is very high.

iPhones are considered as the most luxurious and high end smartphone devices. They are good but the pricing is always the main dealbreaker in Nepal. In Nepal and India, the prices are unreasonably high. Despite having high price, many people buy these smartphones. These have now become a symbol of status and we don’t have anything to tell in that case. If you are looking into high end smartphones, we want you to seriously consider other phones in Nepal.

If the prices were similar to USA prices, it would have been reasonable but in Nepal they are out of proportion. However lets have a look at the price of new Apple iPhones in the table below.

Apple iPhone XS MaxRs 2,34,000 (512 GB), Rs 2,02,000 (256 GB), Rs 1,78,000 (64 GB)

Apple iPhone XRRs 1,45,800 (256 GB), Rs 1,29,500 (125 GB), Rs 1,19,500 (64 GB)

Pricing and Models

In case of iPhone XS and XS Max, there are three color variants. This includes Silver, Gold and Space Gray. Both phones come in 64 GB, 256 GB and 512 GB storage model. On the other hand, iPhone XR is available in 64 GB, 128 GB and 256 GB models. There is no 512 GB variant here.

Also there is no SD card support in Apple products so you should choose storage wisely. Most people are good with 64 GB and only very few opt for 512 GB. We think 128 GB is actually the sweet sport for smartphones these days. These phones are capable of shooting 4K 60 FPS in HDR and the resultant files can be massive.

Apple iPhones always have very good benchmark score and performance. They also have very good camera and no one can deny it. The DxOMark of XS Max is very high and better than Pixel 2 as well. The problem here is only pricing with these phones. We hope Apple fixes this issue and makes them available at uniform prices all over the world.
