Apple recently launched the iPhone SE (2020), the beauty of the classic iPhone and brains of the latest iPhone. However, it still costs much more in India compared to the US.
It would be happening someday, and yes, Apple will be assembling iPhone SE 2020 in India.
The iPhone maker has already asked one of its suppliers in China to start shipping components for the iPhone SE 2020 to its manufacturing partner Wistron in India, reports AppleInsider. In fact, in news that will delight users who like tiny phones, it'll be smaller than Apple's now smallest phone, the iPhone SE (2020).
The iPhone 12 will be the companies main flagship offering this year, backed up by the iPhone 12 Max and Pro Max, but Youtuber and leaker EverythingApplePro has posted a video to Twitter where he puts a chunk of plastic, supposedly a model built to the specs of the iPhone 12, next to an iPhone SE. The Cupertino veteran is said to have taken this step to avoid the 20 percent tax required to import new iPhone models into the country.
Apple had assembled previous-generation iPhone SE in India as the first Indian manufacture phone.
iPhone SE in 2017 was the first model to be manufactured in India.
Apple kicked off its domestic manufacturing in India back in May 2017, and the initial model which was produced locally was the iPhone SE.
The iPhone SE (2020) has been launched in India for Rs42,500 which in American dollar is $558, the global launch of the phone was for Rs 30,400. The recent government program Production linked incentive scheme has helped the company to manufacture in India.
It seems that Apple is preparing to make the new iPhone SE in India. However, if this leak is accurate that we're looking at a phone smaller than the 138.4 x 67.3 x 7.3mm of the iPhone SE.
