Apple is trying to make a statement to Indian consumers on what happens when they start manufacturing devices in India. After recently reducing the price of their latest Apple iPhone 7 and 7 Plus of Rs. 10,000, the Cupertino giant has now reduced the price of their compact phone, iPhone SE with the same amount of Rs. 10,000. The iPhone SE is currently retailing in India for Rs. 19,999 for the 16GB variant and costs Rs. 25,999 for the 64GB variant.
The news was first broke out by the Kerala-based retailer, ITNetTelecom on Twitter. However, this offer is applicable for card holders and not for offline transactions. Also, the retailer stated that the offer will be valid until March 25. So, here’s the offer breakdown- The Apple iPhone SE original price is Rs. 24,999 and you need to pay the same amount at the time of purchase, and you will get additional Rs. 5,000 cash back within 90 days from the date of purchase. The same applies with the 64GB variant as well.

Nonetheless, the deal is a great one for Apple lovers. Apple recently launched the 32GB variant of the iPhone 6 for Rs. 28,999, but an iPhone SE with better hardware than the two-year-old iPhone 6 will be a great deal. The iPhone SE features the hardware that of Apple iPhone 6s.
Apple iPhone SE Key Specifications:
- 4 inch HD screen
- Apple A9 processor with M9 motion co-processor
- 2GB RAM
- 12 Megapixel rear camera with LED flash
- 1.2 Megapixel front camera
- 1,715 mAh battery
- 16 GB and 64GB Internal Storage options
- iOS 9.3
That said, this is the first time we’re seeing an Apple iPhone being sold at a price less than that of the US market. The iPhone SE is retailing for around $369 (approx. Rs. 24,200) for the 16GB model. Will you get an iPhone SE with better hardware than that of iPhone 6 or will go the latter for a bigger screen? Let us know in the comments section below.
