The new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, in a vibrant red aluminum finish, were available nationwide from Monday.
The new red smartphones have identical features to other iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus products, which were launched in September 2016.
With the introduction of the products, Apple adds a new colour to the iPhone 7 collection besides Jet Black, Black, Silver, Gold and Rose Gold.
The new products come with 128GB and 256GB storage capacities. The 4.7-inch red iPhone 7 is being sold at prices of VNĐ21.69 million (US$964) and VNĐ24.59 million for the 128GB and 256GB version, respectively.
