March 1, 2016, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Just when you thought the plethora of smartphone launches will wind up after the MWC, big player Apple is entering the scene. And they are holding aloft a couple of new products to be showcased during the second half of March.

iPhone SE, which has been in the rumors for over months, has been now finally reported to be coming out of the wraps by the third week of March, between 21st and 23rd, at an event that would also hurl in a new iPad and some new features for the Apple Watch.

There are more revelations as we get closer to the event. A new tip comes from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo who holds a good track record with the previous revelations. According to him, the new compact iPhone would be priced in between $400 and $500 in the United States.


The pricing of the device can be considered as much lower, especially with the device coming out with a faster A9 processor and Apple Pay support. The device is also said to be offering up to 64GB space in that price-range along with a 16GB model.

The 4-inch smartphone will house a 2.5D curved glass in its display. Besides these goodies, the 12-megapixel iSight camera in the device will comes with Live Photos support as well. All these could boost the lure-factor of the device despite it being labeled as a scaled down device.

Kuo has also added that the Cupertino Company will achieve a sale of over 12 million units of the new device this year.  The earlier prediction was that the iPhone SE would touch 18-million shipments, but the price drop of iPhone 5S device is what has made the rejigs in predictions.
