iPhone 7 Red can now be pre-ordered in UAE & Saudi Arabia

iPhone 7 Product (RED), the recently launched new edition of Apple iPhone can now be pre-ordered online in United Arab Emirates & Saudi Arabia. Both the models; iPhone 7 & iPhone 7 Plus are available in the Red edition for pre-order in the two countries.

Launched last week, iPhone 7 Product(RED) is a collaboration between Red, a charity and Apple. A portion of each of these devices sold will go to the charity. Apple has been their partner for ten years to fight HIV-AIDS in Sub-Saharan Africa but this is the first time the company has launched a special-edition iPhone in partnership with Red.

Here’s an unboxing video of iPhone 7 Plus Product(RED) Plus and it looks amazing. The white front doesn’t make much sense to us but even with the white front it looks like a phone we would love to have.

The phone has received mixed reactions from public with some of the users suggesting that it would’ve looked better with black front instead of white. A render artist Benjamin Geskin re-imagined the model with black front and people absolutely loved it on Twitter.

How iPhone 7 Red would've looked with Black Front

Well that is obviously a concept and all we can have for now is the (RED) edition with white front. Here’s where you can pre-order it in UAE & Saudi Arabia.

United Arab Emirates

In UAE, you can now pre-order directly from Apple’s website or Etisalat. Both of them have the same prices for both the models; iPhone 7 (Product)RED 128 GB for AED 2,999, iPhone 7 (Product)RED 256 GB for AED 3,399, iPhone 7 Plus (Product)RED 128 GB at AED 3,499 and iPhone 7 Plus (Product)RED 256 GB for AED 3,899. Etisalat’s website says that they will give first priority to online order once the stock arrives and the customers can expect delivery within 2 to 3 working days, starting from tomorrow (March 27) and Apple’s Online Shop says that all the models and variations will be dispatched with in 2-3 weeks apart from iPhone 7 Plus Product(RED) 256 GB which will be delivered by 29th March to most of the Emirates.

Saudi Arabia

In Saudi Arabia, the pre-orders are available on Jarir Bookstore, eXtra and Abdul Latif Jameel Electronics.
