The launch of Apple’s latest iPhone 4 in India looks imminent. The company has just revamped the iPhone section on Apple India website to include details about the iPhone 4. The section now also contains a ‘Notify Me‘ link for users willing to notified in advance of the iPhone 4 launch details.

The development is in line with an announcement by Sanjay Kapoor, the CEO of Bharti Airtel for India and South Asia in July this year when he confirmed the availability of the phone by October of this year. The price of the new phone back then was speculated to be around Rs.40,000. For a perspective, Samsung Galaxy S is available for a price of Rs.29,000 in most Indian cities.

No details with respect to the carriers is available right now. But one can expect the new phone to be at least available with Vodafone and Bharti Airtel – the two carriers who have also carried Apple’s earlier iPhone models. While recent rumors have pointed out to the possibility of the iPhone arriving on CDMA carriers like Tata Teleservices and Reliance Communications, it is not clear if any announcement whatsoever in this regard shall be made anytime soon.
