Apple has launched the new much anticipated 4 inch iPhone SE and the expected price in India for the iPhone SE is Rs. 29,999. The international price for the mobile is $399 for the 16 GB model while the 64 GB iPhone SE will cost around $500.
Update – 23- March-2016 – As I was writing the Article and Apple announced the US price of $399, it made perfect sense to price the new iPhone SE at Rs. 30,000 in India. After all Apple want to get new users on iOS with the iPhone SE. Apple on 22 morning gave a statement which said the price will be 30K and later retracted with a statement, that the price will be 39,000 in India.
Sounds strange to me when you can easily buy the iPhone 6s right now from Amazon or Flipkart for a price of Rs. 40,500 with out any discounts, I even bought one last week at 39.5 K. If you are looking forward to buy the iPhone SE then wait for some weeks and can easily pick one up much below the launch price.
The iPhone SE is here. The latest iteration of the iPhone in its 4 inch avatar is revealed. People are still buying the 4” as their first iOS device in millions. Apple claims to have sold 30 million 4” iPhones in 2015 despite the availability of their bigger newer cousins.
The iPhone SE name is confirmed. It looks like the iPhone 5s with few design cues borrowed from the iPhone 6/6s. The iPhone SE will come in the established 4 colours, i.e. Silver, Space Gray, Gold and Rose Gold.
The CPU under the hood is a 64 bit A9 processor, the same one as found on the current top of the line iPhone 6s duo. No worries about the processor capability and lifecycle. Also under the hood is the M9 motion coprocessor.
