◆ 3rd generation iPhone SE
The price range of the 3rd generation iPhone SE is expected to be 49,800 yen including tax, which is the same as the existing iPhone SE. 'The design will remain the same, with two major upgrades, 5G and a better processor,' said Minchey Kuo, an analyst with high-precision leak information related to Apple. ..
Bloomberg's Mark Gurman, who has also dealt with a lot of Apple-related leak information, suggests that 'Apple should reduce the price of the existing second-generation iPhone SE to $ 199.' If this policy is adopted, cheaper iPhone options will be created and more smartphone users may become iPhone users, but it is unclear whether Apple will adopt such a strategy.
