iPhone SE2’s price and other attractive specs
For those who aren’t willing to shell out a huge amount on a brand new Apple phone, iPhone SE2 would be a perfect match. Last month Apple launched iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max. All of these outstanding phones loaded with the latest features, however, ranged between $699 and $1,099, and one thing was pretty sure they aren’t cheap. But with soon to be launched SE2 model, customers would get a more affordable option from the stable of Apple.
According to Taiwanese analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, iPhone SE2 is expected to hit the market by the first quarter of 2020 and is likely to be priced at $399 (₹28,200 approximately). This affordable iPhone variant will come equipped with the latest Apple A13 Bionic chip paired with 3GB LPDDR4X RAM. Storage options of 64 GB and 128 GB will be up for a grab but will not come integrated with 3D Touch. It will be available in Space Grey, Silver, and Red colour options.
Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo feels that, with a price tag of $399, this particular Apple handset will be positioned as an upgrade to the iPhone 6 (Rs 24,225) and iPhone 6s (Rs 23,184) users, and will feature a design aesthetic that is in line with the iPhone 8. Adorned with 4.7 inch LCD display and integrated Touch ID on the home button, this will definitely be a great customer choice. SE2 should run on the latest version of iOS 13. As per industry speculations, following the launch of the iPhone SE2, the Cupertino Company might stop selling handsets of iPhone 8 to make room for the new offering.
This SE2 model would be Apple’s third attempt to produce an entry-level iPhone. Earlier in 2013, it released the iPhone 5C or the iPhone 5 in new plastic casing and positioned it as a cheaper alternative to the flagship iPhone 5S. And now there’s this aforementioned iPhone SE. With fewer people willing to splurge huge amount on a new phone, and eyeing huge, price-sensitive markets like China and India, affordable phones are arguably more important now than ever to remain in the game.
