iPhone 5C sales at discount in China, as sales lag far behind iPhone 5S.
iPhone5c, Apple's newly-launched lower-end phone, is selling at discounts as sales remain stagnant overshadowed by the intensively popular iPhone 5s.
iPhone 5c with 16 G storage is sold at 3699 yuan (about $604) Thursday at a store on Tmall, the country's largest B2C retail platform, down from the original price of 4488 yuan (about $733).
Information on the webpage showed the store has sold 45 devices following the launch last Friday.
The gold-colored iPhone 5s is rather attractive, in particular for Asian markets and prices are pushed to over 10,000 yuan ($1634) at some resellers stores in China amid a mania for the color.
Samsung, Apple's biggest rival, has just announced Thursday that its Galaxy S4 will be offered in two golden colors, following HTC One’s expensive version in 24-carat gold.
