Apple’s fall launch event is scheduled for September 8 at 1 a.m. BST, and it seems the world’s attention is on the upcoming iPhone 14 series.
But there’s actually a cheaper phone in Apple’s lineup – the iPhone SE – which is just as good a choice if you’re on a budget.
The current iPhone SE 3 has almost the same shape as the iPhone 8, but the latest news is that Apple is working on the iPhone SE 4, which will be a “sea change” in design, and is simply a replica of the iPhone XR.
This means that the iPhone SE 4 will eliminate the front home button, while increasing the display area. If it is a bangs screen, then it will support Face ID face recognition, and if it is a dugout screen, then the corresponding side fingerprint, but the former is more likely.
Just to reduce costs, the iPhone SE 4 may also use an LCD LCD screen, rather than OLED.
The reason why Apple has to make drastic adjustments to the iPhone SE is because of the poor sales of SE 3. Although the old users still have the plot, but the small screen, poor battery life have made the iPhone SE 3 become “can only watch from afar but not profane” existence.
In fact, according to data from industry bodies, iPhone SE sales in China are indeed average, with 2021 data, for example, iPhone SE 2 global sales, China only contributed 8%, while Japan ranked first, contributing 33%, the United States ranked second, contributing 24%.
Considering the population base, and the distribution of sales of the iPhone 13 series, etc., it does show that Chinese users really don’t love this cheap iPone SE too much, while Americans and Japanese still love the iPhone SE more.
Of course, whether for small size phone lovers, users with limited budget or for those who buy it as a backup, iPhone SE has the “pass” to use the latest iOS system with the lowest cost.
So, are you in love with the iPhone SE? If you really can not leave, it is recommended to wait a little longer.
As for the release time, iPhone SE 4 is expected to be released in March next year, the starting price to maintain 3499 yuan.
