In 2019, Apple’s smartphone sales in India had a double-digit difference of around 25%, reflecting Apple’s growth in India as well. No doubt that 2019 was a great year for Apple, the company’s new smartphones iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro hit the competition very hard. Also, the cutoff in the price for iPhone XR that featured A12 Bionic Chip also influences the demand of the Indian audience in the Premium segment. The company understands the Indian smartphone market potential and looking to oversee iPhones according to Indian taste.
Indian market value for Apple
This year Apple is particularly focusing on the Indian market. In 2019, we have become the second-largest smartphone market in the world, beating America. This year in Q1 we are going to expect a smartphone from Apple, which could be iPhone 9 or iPhone SE 2. So, let’s see what the next iPhone is and what their specification is going to be.
iPhone 8 Display and Design for iPhone 9
According to rumors, there is some confirmed news about the specifications of the iPhone 9 or SE2. The iPhone 9 is coming with the same display and design that we saw on the iPhone 8. Yes, it will have a 4.7-inch LCD display with HD resolution. So, there will be no notch in it, thus you will not get any Face ID. We get to see the home button which will also work as a fingerprint scanner. It will have a glass back and can be the cheapest flagship to support wireless charging.
Apple is going to provide you with the latest A13 Bionic chip which is an octa-core chipset. It is built on the same 7nm technology with clock speed up to 2.65 GHz. So, Apple is providing you the fastest smartphone in the affordable price bracket. From a software point of view, we will get the latest iOS 14. In the optic area, the smartphone will have only one rear camera. The primary rear camera is of the 12-megapixel sensor of f/1.8 aperture stabilized by OIS.
For a moment, the fact is that this is the same camera primary sensor that we see in the latest iPhone 11. Therefore, in terms of camera, it would be a great smartphone. The front camera will be the same sensor of 7 Megapixel that present in the iPhone 8. We do not have any information for battery right now, but the A13 Bionic chip will surely give you better efficiency.
Price for iPhone 9 or SE 2
iPhone SE series is the budget series in the smartphone lineup. Also, Apple could launch a new iPhone SE2 or 9 for the base price of 34,999 Rs. At this price, I am pretty sure it is going to give hard competition to Oneplus and Samsung. As Samsung also comes up with the lite version of its S10 Lite and S10 Note lite, the flagship bracket is filling with the arduous competition.
iPhone SE 2 or 9 launching date in India
iPhone SE 2 launching date in India is around March but it can be delayed due to Coronavirus in China.
