While Apple is scheduled to open an event on the 8th (local time) and unveil a new product, an analyst specializing in Apple has revealed details of the ‘iPhone SE3′ .
A total of three colors, including red, will be released to diversify consumer options and lower the price than its predecessor (iPhone SE2).
Nine to Five Mac, an overseas information technology ( IT ) media , reported this by citing the content posted on Twitter by Ming-Chi Kuo, an Apple analyst at Taiwan TF International, on the 4th.
Although Apple generates most of its sales from premium phones by adopting a high-priced strategy, the iPhone SE is the only mid-range model in Apple’s iPhone lineup. Since it is a model targeting Samsung Electronics’ ‘garden’, which is ahead of Apple in the mid-to-low-end market, attention is focused on its success.
According to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the iPhone SE3 model will be available in three colors – white, black and red – with 64GB , 128GB and 256GB storage options. This model is the 2020 iPhone SE .It is similar to , but it added that it will support the 5th generation mobile communication ( 5G ) connection function and will be equipped with an A15 chip.
It is also predicted that the iPhone SE3 will start mass production on the 22nd and will ship 25 to 30 million smartphones this year. It is expected to have the same design as its predecessor with a 4.7 -inch screen, but the price is expected to be at the level of 300 months (about 370,000 won), which is 100 dollars lower than the previous model. An industry official said, “The iPhone market share is expected to increase in South and Southeast Asian countries, where sales of mid- to low-end smartphones have traditionally been high.” The impact on Samsung Electronics, which had a high proportion, will be unavoidable,” he observed.
Apple previously announced that it would hold a special event to unveil its new products at Apple Park, its headquarters in Cupertino, California. Apple’s invitation to the media was titled ‘ Peek performance ‘ .
The US media and analysts are predicting that the new iPad will be unveiled along with the iPhone SE3 at this event. The new iPad will be an update to the mid-range iPad Air, Bloomberg predicted. Apple is also expected to introduce iOS 15.4, the latest iPhone operating system ( OS ) . It seems that a function that can perform face recognition while wearing a mask will be added to this. The iPhone’s facial recognition function is used as a means of verifying identity when unlocking a device, making a financial payment, or logging into various websites.
