Apple To Launch iPhone SE Plus To Compete With Chinese Rivals

According to a new claim, Apple will release a mid-range device to compete with Chinese rivals that are more affordable phones. This device to be released by the company will be the iPhone SE Plus, the continuation of their iPhone SE. Although a high-end device comes to mind when the iPhone is mentioned, Apple released its model called iPhone SE 2 / iPhone SE 2020 in April this year. The phone debuted with a cheaper price tag than other iPhone models.

The iPhone XR, the lowest model of the iPhone X series was released in 2018, with a price tag of $ 500, while the iPhone SE 2 went on sale for $ 400. According to new information, Apple will use its SE models to compete with its Chinese rivals. According to the news in Gizchina, Apple planning on releasing a more affordable mid-segment phone next year. The reason for the company to release this mid-segment device is to compete with brands such as Xiaomi, OPPO and Vivo in China and India.

According to rumors, the iPhone SE Plus will have a 5.5-inch screen and a fingerprint reader positioned on the side. Also, Apple will use Touch ID buttons on the iPhone SE Plus to reduce costs. Famous analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says the new iPhone SE will lower the total price. Kuo says it will use a 5.5-inch or 6.1-inch screen. On the design side, it is stated that it will use the same case as the iPhone XR or iPhone 8. As expected, the iPhone SE Plus will not have 5G connectivity support and will only come with 4G connectivity.
