iPhone 8 and 8 Plus PRODUCT RED

Earlier today we reported that Apple is set to launch iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus PRODUCT RED edition in partnership with RED, a nonprofit organisation that works to combat AIDS and HIV in Africa. As expected the official announcement of RED branded iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus has come via official press release from Apple.

This is the second consecutive year Apple has unveiled iPhone models in RED. With each purchase of a RED edition Apple product, the Cupertino based company donates a portion of its revenue to charity that goes directly to Global Fund HIV/AIDS grants that provide testing, counseling, treatment and prevention programs. Since its partnership with RED that started in 2006, Apple has donated more than $160 million to the Global Fund.

The special edition RED variants can be ordered online in select countries such as the US, Canada and Germany from tomorrow (April 10) and in stores from April 13. Both the phones will be available in 64GB and 256GB memory variant with starting price of USD 699. For those who are contributing to the cause by buying RED iPhones, Apple is offering Personal Setup in-store or online to help them customize their iPhone by setting up email etc.

The folio is crafted from specially tanned and finished European leather which gives it a very luxurious look and feel. The folio will be available on apple.com, the Apple Store app and Apple Stores for USD 99 from tomorrow (April 10) along with other RED branded Apple products such as Beats Solo3 Wireless On-Ear Headphones, Beats Pill+ Portable Speaker and accessories for iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch.

Both RED iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus sport a beautiful glass enclosure with a matching aluminum band. The glass back supports wireless charging, but the wireless chargers needs to be purchased separately. However, the RED iPhones have black front panels instead of White as seen in RED iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. In terms of specifications, the RED variants are identical to iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. So, it can be considered as one more colour in addition to existing Grey, Silver and Gold.

While commenting on the launch, Greg Joswiak, Apple’s vice president of Product Marketing said, “This special edition (PRODUCT)RED iPhone features a stunning red and black color combination and also offers customers the opportunity to make an impact in fighting the spread of HIV and AIDS.”
