According to recent reports that cite Chinese supply sources, Apple is planning to reveal a new budget-friendly iPhone, which will be a continuation of the SE series. The updated version will feature its emblematic design, which was used for the iPhone 5S series, but of course, considerably boosted.
Our sources reveal that Apple is planning the launch in the first quarter of 2018. The iPhone SE won’t follow the same pattern of yearly updates, but Apple has made it clear that they won’t discontinue the 4-inch model as it’s offered cheaper, which makes it of great importance for markets like India.
While there are many people who don’t like tiny displays, we should acknowledge the fact that there are many reasons to buy such a phone nowadays.
The Cupertino-based company is on a mission to make the old design popular once more. The customers base they’re looking for is different than the normal one. They are targeting those who were forced into buying a larger iPhone and as well as for the millions of people who bought the iPhone 5 & 5S in 2015.
Smaller phones are easier to use, they have improved battery life and overall performance. Highly suitable for women and individuals who are not comfortable carrying large devices.
The display of the phone is the component of the phone that drains the most energy. The logic follows that a smaller display would consume less energy.
According to Apple, their SE model has the best battery life amongst all others. They haven’t released any official information, but the rumor has it that it is either the equivalent of an iPhone 6S or greater.
The fact is that the SE has the same specifications as the 6S, but comes at a far cheaper price. It features the great A9 chip with M9 motion co-processor and 12MP iSight camera.
Models like SE that are considered a cheaper alternative, are often mistaken for phones with poor performance and unattractive design, but this is not the case with this model.
The size is far smaller than their flagship phones and the design is almost the same as the popular iPhone 5S. It surely offers a great performance for its price of $400.
Years ago, Samsung was at the top of the phone camera industry, but things have changed now. In recent years, Apple has shown one of the best cameras featured on phones, that make photography a great fun.
The SE features a 12MP iSight camera, which is similar to the one used in the 6S. Moreover, there’s a huge variety of modes and you can record video in 4K.
For its price tag, the SE is an excellent alternative for individuals who are looking for a more budget-friendly device or the same 5S experience.
After reviewing the advantages of the SE model, an update of this line in 2018 actually makes sense. Our sources reveal that the company is planning to update the A9 chip to a newer processor. We’re really looking forward seeing what Apple has prepared for us this spring!
