As per rumours, the new iPhone SE will come with a 4.2- inch display screen and have iOS 11 operating system. It will derive its energy from a 1700 mAh battery and will be powered by Apple A10 processor. The phone is expected to be offered in 32 GB and 128 GB storage options.
The iPhone SE was launched last year to address two demands: an iPhone with a smaller screen, and an iPhone that's cheap. This phone, Apple felt, would help it to increase its presence in emerging markets. Though the phone wasn't made available in India in the first round of shipments, it has since gone on to become the only device assembled by Apple in the country. It is perhaps the success of the model here which has led to Apple now deciding to make it the first market where the new version is sold.
Apple is definitely eyeing India as a key market as confirmed by its CEO Tim Cook when he recently said, “I’m very, very bullish and very, very optimistic about India.”
