Apple iPhone SE Price in India and Launch Date Revealed

At its ‘Let Us Loop You In’ conference on Tuesday in Cupertino, California, Apple unveiled the iPhone SE. The company is calling the new offering its cheapest iPhone model to date, with s price starting at $399 (roughly Rs. 26,600) in the US. In India however, the starting price for the iPhone SE is Rs. 39,000, the company confirmed. As for availability, Apple said the iPhone SE will be available for purchase in India starting early April.

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, which Apple launched last year. Apple also unveiled new accessories such as leather cases in Black and Midnight Blue, which will be available at Rs. 2,900. The Lightning Docks will be available at Rs. 3,700.

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. As we mentioned earlier, the Apple iPhone SE features innards similar to the iPhone 6s, but comes with a design and form factor that’s reminiscent of the iPhone 5s – the company’s last 4-inch iPhone.

Looking nearly identical to the iPhone 5s, the iPhone SE comes with the colour variants introduced with the iPhone 6s – including Rose Gold. It also features more rounded edges on the top and bottom panels, more like the iPhone 6 than the iPhone 5s.

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.
