Apple plans to maintain its dominance in the smartphone market in the coming years. The company is currently planning to expand its operations and enter the market of mid-range smartphones, which are slightly cheaper.
Recent leaks have revealed that Apple will offer the iPhone SE 3 for a total of $ 300 in the coming months.
Investor’s Business Daily has announced the latest update, with John Donovan of Loop Capital Markets announcing that the upcoming iPhone SE 3 could sell for just $ 300. The current generation iPhone SE retails for $ 2,399, and its successor is expected to have a faster processor, longer battery life and 5G support.
For comparison, Apple’s cheapest devices on the market, such as the iPhone 12 mini, sell for $ 599, while smartphones like the iPhone 13 series start at $ 699.
The leak also cited reports from JPMorgan analysts in December 2021, who claimed that Apple had taken this particular step to switch about 1.4 billion Android smartphone users to the iPhone. In addition, financial analysts also said that 300 million users of older iPhone models could benefit from the upgrade.
The iPhone SE 3 (2022) is expected to introduce an Apple A15 Bionic chipset similar to that used for the iPhone 13 series. The SE 3 will also have a design similar to the SE 2, with a glass cover and an aluminum back.
Apple is expected to present the iPhone SE 3 (2022) at the spring launch event. The official date of the event has not been announced yet. However, the leaks indicate that the incident could take place on March 8.
