On Friday, sale of the iPhone 5 smartphone launches in Lithuania. The phone can be bought at mobile network operator Omnitel stores, 15min.lt reports.
The 16 GB iPhone 5 model costs 2699 Lt, 64 GB – 3299 Lt.
Apple presented this smartphone in the middle of September. It is thinner, lighter and faster than its predecessors: it now has a 4 inch screen, and the phone supports 4G LTE communication. Although the phone works on 1800 Mhz frequency (which is used by Omnitel for its 4G service), according to 15min.lt, the phones buyers will not be able to use 4G connection yet. It is hoped that this function will be activated in the future once Apple releases software updates.
Sales of the iPhone 5 began in major countries last Friday, and 5 million phones were sold on the first sales weekend.
Still, first buyers were not happy with the new Apple maps, which replaced Google maps as the default maps application. Users also complained about the phone’s screen. Nevertheless, the phone was highly praised by industry reviewers.
