Apple along with its usual models launched a new iPhone 12 Mini variant last year, with flagship specifications but with a smaller, more manageable display. However, according to a recent Counterpoint report iPhone 12 Mini in the US marked for only 5 percent of overall sales of the new 12 series in the first half of January. Due to which, it was being reported that Apple might not continue the new variant series. According to a new report by the prolific leaker, Jon Prosser, Apple has not given up hope and is looking to launch a new Mini variant this year too.

Not much is known about the device as of now, but it is expected to come with the same features as the iPhone 13 with a smaller battery and display.

Apart from this, he also mentions that the company might not launch the next-gen iPhone SE this year, which has been featured in a number of earlier reports. This is because it wants to fill the gap with the iPhone 13 Mini. However, if it does end up launching a SE variant, it will not be a normal next-gen device, instead, it will just be the ‘SE Plus’.

To recall, the iPhone 12 Mini is priced at Rs 69,900 for the 64GB variant, at Rs 74,900 for the 128GB storage option and at Rs 84,900 for the 256GB storage variant.
