Apple may plan a lower cost iPhone SE2 for India
Speculation, but I think Apple may be planning a new lower cost iPhone SE 2 for India (and other developing markets).
That’s not based on anything more than what the news today claims. You see, when I hear that Wistron is to open a new factory in India in which it plans to make iPhones for Apple, I don’t see the iPhone 8 — I see a brand new iPhone model aimed at developing markets.
After all, we know Wistron manufactured the iPhone 5c and iPhone SE, so is that really such a far-fetched idea? What’s wrong with thinking about an India-made iPhone aimed at grabbing a bigger chunk of the smartphone market?
Particularly if the company can get the deals it wants in order to enable it to trim some dollars of the device’s cost.
Apple is thought to be planning three new iPhones this season, one being a high-end device. What if one is to be a relatively low-end iPhone, designed to be made available across developing markets?
It’s not like doing so makes no sense. I guess we may find out more this April, which is just over a year since iPhone SE. I wonder how this will play.
