The analyst of Gene Munster, Piper Jaffray, says that Apple’s iPhone SE will give an opportunity to the Cupertino’s giant to experiment with pricing on its older iPhone devices. Apple is expected to launch this upcoming smartphone by the end of this month, so it’s not far to see the results from it. The analysts are expecting this smartphone to be prices at $450.
As per Munster, this will allow Apple to price its iPhone 5s as its new entry level handset, which might be priced between $250 and $350. This reason is also laid by the analyst J.P Morgan from Rod Hall. The Cupertino’s has been setting the stage for its upcoming iPhone SE smartphone by pulling the previous versions iPhone 4S and iPhone 5C in the countries like India. Apple’s iPhone 4S is priced at $175 USD and has become one of the popular phones in the area.
As the iPhone 5c is already gone, so currently the lowest priced iPhone available to the customers is the iPhone 5S, which is priced at $372 USD. This price is after a 50% price cut in the price of this handset in December. We are expecting the new iPhone SE to be launched at a media event which will be held on 21st March by the tech giant.
This 4 inch device will be powered by A9 chip, which can also be found inside the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus handsets. There are rumors that this upcoming smartphone will also offer Live photos even though it will not get support for the 3D Touch feature. But this handset will support Apple Pay, which confirms that it will get NFC on board. Apple’s analysts Ming Chi Kuo says that the upcoming handset will get 12MP primary camera for clicking better quality pictures even in low light conditions.
