Apple at its ‘Let Us Loop You In’ event last month unveiled the new iPhone SE and also revealed that the new 4-inch iPhone would go on sale in 100 countries by May. The Cupertino-based giant had also confirmed that India price of the iPhone SE would be Rs. 39,000 for the 16GB storage model. It hadn’t revealed the price of its 64GB model however. Now, the company’s India site listing finally confirms the 64GB iPhone SE will be priced at Rs. 49,000.
As announced before, the iPhone SE will be available in Gold, Rose Gold, Silver, and Space Grey colours. As for availability, Apple said the iPhone SE will be available for purchase in India starting early April, while its distributors have already pointed to an April 8 availability of the smartphone in the country.
oon after the global launch, Apple’s Philip Schiller, Senior Vice President of Marketing, confirmed that in the iPhone SE, the ‘SE’ stood for ‘Special Edition’, a name that had been rumoured since early this year.
To refresh, the iPhone SE sports a 4-inch display and comes in two storage variants: 16GB and 64GB. It has much the same innards as the iPhone 6s. The new Apple smartphone is meant to address both the demand for a smaller screen iPhone, as well as the demand for a cheap iPhone. Looking nearly identical to the iPhone 5s, the iPhone SE comes with the colour variants introduced with the iPhone 6s – including Rose Gold.
For specifications, the iPhone SE features the iPhone 6s’ Apple A9 SoC and M9 motion coprocessor, 12-megapixel iSight (rear) camera with 4K video support, Bluetooth 4.2, improved Wi-Fi and LTE, new microphones, and Apple Pay support with a Touch ID fingerprint sensor.
