I don't believe these prices are accurate for two reasons. Firstly, Who sells a phone for R17 389? That is a very specific number! Apple pricing in South Africa normally ends with 999 or 499. Secondly Vodacom have leaked fake pricing in the past. I am not sure if they are trying to generate interest or if they are trying to mislead their competition but whatever it is it is not working.
Here is a price list reflecting our estimates and Vodacom's leaked prices:
|iGenius Prediction||Vodacom Leak|
|iPhone 7||32GB||R13 999||R14 699|
|128GB||R15 999||R16 929|
|256GB||R17 999||R19 199|
|iPhone 7 Plus||32GB||R15 999||R17 389|
|128GB||R17 999||R19 639|
|256GB||R20 999||R21 899|
If we assumed that Vodacom pricing is correct the Vodacom are working on about $1 = R22,60 conversion rate on the iPhone 7 32GB. On the iPhone 7 256GB that conversion rate goes up to R23,55. At the moment the conversion rate of iPhone's is between R21,20 - R21,50 with the exception of the iPhone 6s Plus 128GB being just over R22.
Will have to wait as see when pricing is revealed but I cal this on False!
