Anatel authorises sale of iPhone 5 in Brazil

Tuesday 9 October 2012 | 15:28 CET | News
Although the iPhone 5 still has no official launch date in Brazil, the country's telecommunications regulator Anatel has authorised the sale of the new smartphone. According to local daily Folha de Sao Paulo, based on official documents from the regulator, the smartphone will be manufactured at a unit of Foxconn in Jundiai (Sao Paulo) and at a Chinese plant. Apple and local mobile operators have yet to confirm a date for the start of sales in Brazil. If Apple should sell the iPhone 5 at the same price as the 4S – repeating what happened in the USA – the mobile phone should cost from BRL 1999.
