Price in India?
Reports suggest that the upcoming iPhone SE 3 will be priced around $300, which roughly translates to Rs 23,000. If this price bracket turns out to be true, the iPhone SE 3 will undoubtedly disrupt the market and get more users onboard for Apple.
To recall, the iPhone SE (2020) was announced at a price starting Rs 42,500, which has currently dropped to Rs 39900 on Apple Online store. Other online retail stores like Flipkart are offering the smartphone at a price starting at Rs 30,299 for the 64GB storage model. Reports suggest that the price of the iPhone SE (2020) will drop below Rs 20,000 once the iPhone SE 3 is released.
What about the Design?
While the price of the iPhone SE 3 is expected to be competitive when compared to its predecessor, the design is likely to remain unchanged. The smartphone is expected to boast off an iPhone SE (2020)-like design with curved edges, Touch ID support, thick bezels and notch, single rear and front camera setup. The device is likely to come in funky colours like that of the iPhone 11 series to grab more consumers’ attention.
-Leaks suggest that the iPhone SE 3 will pack a similar display size and technology as the predecessor iPhone SE (2020). The device is said to pack a 4.7-inch display with a thick notch at the top and bezels on other sides. The TouchID will sit at the middle of the bottom bezel. Just as the predecessor, the upcoming iPhone is likely to ditch FaceID support to make the model more pocket friendly.
-Though the pricing of the iPhone SE 3 is expected to be quite aggressive, Apple doesn’t seem to compromise on the performance. Rumours and leaks suggest that the iPhone SE 3 will be powered by the A15 Bionic chipset, which also runs the latest iPhone 13 flagship series.
-Since the iPhone SE (2020) packs a single rear camera system and a smaller battery setup, the successor model is likely to add extra features in these departments. If rumours are considered, the upcoming iPhone may bring a bigger battery and a secondary camera sensor.
