MANILA – The country’s two biggest mobile providers will test their sales prowess next month to determine which of them can sell the most number of the latest iPhone.

Last month, Apple launched the iPhone 6, a 4.7-inch retina high-definition display, and the iPhone 6 Plus, which has a 5.5-inch display. The smartphones are powered by the Apple-designed A8 chip with second generation 64-bit desktop-class architecture, and equipped with the advanced iSight and FaceTime HD cameras, ultrafast wireless technologies, iOS 8, and Apple Pay.

Smart and Globe are expected to offer attractive postpaid plans to entice their respective subscribers.
