Apple now selling 32GB iPhone 6 model in Belarus

Following the unusual re-launch of the iPhone 6 in a 32GB model in China earlier this month, Apple now appears to have expanded sales of the “new” 2017 iPhone 6 model to Belarus, AppleInsider reports. Belarusian Apple reseller i-Store is currently taking orders for the device, which is priced at 999 rubles (~$520) and only available in Space Gray. Much like its launch in Asia, the device is identified as “iPhone 6 (2017)” and is in a previously-unavailable 32GB capacity, making it clear that Apple has begun manufacturing limited quantities of the older model in a new capacity, likely targeted for sale as an entry-level model in emerging markets. The 2017 iPhone 6 otherwise has the same specs as the 2014 model, but will run iOS 10 out of the box.

The 32GB iPhone 6 is notably being sold for less than the price of similar models in Belarus, where refurbished entry-level iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s models appear to be regularly priced at 1,200 rubles (~$625) and up. As with sales in China and Taiwan, this special iPhone 6 model is only being sold through specific outlets, and not through any of Apple’s own retail channels, although it’s also worth noting that Apple has no retail presence in Belarus.
