Would you spend $399 on the new iPhone SE?
According to CNN's Samantha Murphy Kelly, the new iPhone SE has huge price tag appeal:
The second-generation SE model starts at just $399, far less than the entry-level iPhone 11, which costs $699, and the iPhone 11 Pro Max, which starts at $1099.
The phone is smaller in stature, but still offers Apple's latest processing technology and, of course, an amazing camera:
At 4.7 inches, the new SE is smaller than the latest lineup of iPhones -- the iPhone 11 is 6.1 inches -- but comes with the same fast processor that's in the11 Pro. It also offers a Retina HD display, 4K video and a home button that enables TouchID.
...the new SE does pack a wide camera with image stabilization and faster autofocus in low light, along with features such as portrait mode, depth of field control and lighting adjustment tools. In a tweet, CEO Tim Cook called it the "best single-camera system ever in an iPhone." It has the same battery life as the iPhone 8.
Although for some, the new iPhone SE is arriving just in time, for others, it's too little, too late. CNN adds:
In February, Apple sold fewer than 500,000 iPhones in China -- one of its biggest markets -- a plunge of more than 60% compared to the same month last year, according to government data. Apple's retail stores, valuable real estate for the company to showcase its latest devices, are closed outside of China until further notice.
Everyone is looking to save money, which may mean fewer technology purposes all around.
