Apple is awaiting to bring out its New mini iPhone SE in the event to be held at California, either on March 15th or 21st. This device is rumored to be smaller and cheaper than Apple’s latest iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus models.
It is quite conventional that Apple introduces its next version in the month of September. But this time the cliche might collapse is what the rumor is, that it will launch in this spring itself along with the new iPad pro with 9.7″ Display and Apple Watch 2.
Rumors brought the name iPhone SE:
At first, they thought to name it as iPhone 6C, and later as iPhone 5SE. But, finally the Californian company simply named it as iPhone SE, saying that SE stands for Special Edition, thanks to some specific rumors.
This device would be the first iPhone with no number in its name. And it is the successor of iPhone 5S.
According to MacRumors, Ming-Chi Kuo- analyst of KGI Securities Company Ltd. stated that there would be a price cut of more or less 50% for iPhone 5s by the company. Currently it costs $450 in US. Hopefully it could be available for $225 later this month.
Currently, the starting price of iPhone 5S, 16GB model is ₹21,499 in major Indian Online portals like Flipkart, Amazon and others. Once the company drops the price, the model would cost between Rs.12,000-13,000 in India. However, it happens only when the iPhone SE hits the market.
Expected Features in iPhone SE:
- Runs on iOS 9.3
1GB RAM, 16/64 GB Internal Storage
Featured with an upgraded A9 chip with M9 motion co-processor
12MP rear camera with auto focus LED flash
Non removable Li-Po 1642 mAh battery
Available in Space Grey, White/Silver, Gold colours.
Few rumours are suspecting that iPhone SE is replica of iPhone 5S. The extra features could be curved glass edges and a Touch ID fingerprint reader with a central power button. It would be a hybrid of 5S and 6S models!
Approximately ₹33000-27000 ($400-500)
After the launch of iPhone SE, Apple iPhone 5S would be available for Rs, 12,000 in order to increase its sales in India. This will make Apple, an iconic firm in the Indian market. It is really a very good time for Apple lovers to grab it.
