Next iPhone SE Could Beat Android in Its Own Game by Apple

Millions of Android users who don’t consider themselves premium might switch to the iPhone SE if market analysts are correct.

If non-iPhone trade-ins are as appealing as iPhone trade-ins (which they are not), then the 5G iPhone SE might have a starting price of $269 to $399, according to analyst Samik Chatterjee, according to Reuters.

Apple’s next device has boosted JP Morgan’s fiscal 2022 iPhone SE shipping and sales projections to 30 million units, an increase of 10 million units from a year earlier.

Starting at $399, Apple’s iPhone SE is the cheapest iOS handset the company still offers ahead of the $489 iPhone 11. Spending $799 on the iPhone 13 is an example of splurging.

As JP Morgan believes, the iPhone SE 3 might find its way into the inexpensive phone market, which Android phone companies like Samsung, Motorola, and Huawei have been fighting for for the last few years.

According to a second report from JP Morgan, the demand for 5G models is expected to continue to be robust and supply will be a priority. Due to the current chip scarcity, it wasn’t mentioned if Apple will be able to keep up with this demand. In the end, Apple surrendered to multi-month delays for several of its devices including iPhones, iPads, and Apple Watches.

The iPhone SE 3 is expected to sport a 4.7-inch LCD display, 5G compatibility, and an unidentified improved chipset, according to Ming-Chi Kuo, an Apple analyst, and Macotakara, a Japanese Apple blog.

There are better forecasters out there than I am, but a part of me feels the iPhone SE’s modest screen size may dissuade Android customers from making the switch. If you’re looking for an Android phone that costs less than $250, you’re going to have a hard time finding one that doesn’t have a 6-inch or bigger screen. In spite of what occurred with the iPhone 12 mini, we believe that larger is always better.
