If you’re one of the fans of the power-packed, mid-range awesome Apple iPhone SE 2020 (they’re hard to miss), you have yet another reason to cheer! With the huge success of iPhone SE 2020 in the Indian market, the California-based tech giant has begun to assemble the ‘People’s iPhone’ in its facility in Bangalore, India. The news of iPhone SE assembled in India comes after almost four months of the launch of the latest Apple iPhone model in India. Let’s see what follows.
Will Home-grown Apples be Cheaper?
Well, technically, the assembling of iPhone SE 2020 in India will allow Apple to avoid 20 percent of import duty that the Government of India levies on many imported smartphone units. However, it completely depends upon Apple if it decides to reduce the price of iPhones in the second-largest smartphone market in the world. We do hope for a decrease in price, but seeing how Apple usually follows a policy of global pricing, it gets very hard to comment.
iPhone SE 2020: The Usual Suspect
Continuing a rather remarkable streak of success in India and the world, the iPhone SE 2020 did really well in the Q2 2020. It combines the powerful Apple A13 bionic chip from iPhone 11 with the sleek 4.7 inches, all packed in an affordable price tag. Assembling it in the Indian market will thus give Apple a clear advantage in the market of mid-budget phones. According to Apple, ‘iPhone SE packs the most powerful chip into our most popular size at our most affordable price’. All fingers in the pie, eh?
Other iPhone models assembled in India
Apart from the highly popular iPhone SE 2020, manufacturers have already been making iPhones in India. Currently, iPhone SE 2016, iPhone 6s, iPhone 7, and iPhone XR are the ones being manufactured in India. In addition to these, Apple started the production of the new iPhone 11 earlier this year and is also planning to produce the much-awaited iPhone 12. Right now, Foxconn and Taiwan-based Wistron, which is also assembling the iPhone SE 2020, are in the iPhone manufacturing business in India.
The assembling of iPhone SE 2020 brings great news for the fans of this iPhone model. And though Apple follows a global pricing policy, assembling iPhones in India definitely saves a lot of money for Apple, the benefits of which can then hopefully be carried on to the customers. A man can hope.
