Customers waiting to buy Apple’s budget iPhone SE may have something to cheer. The phone is currently retailing at Rs 35,999 on Flipkart. However, there are deals available that could potentially bring down your cost of owning the iPhonse SE to just Rs 18,4999! Find out how.
Apple had launched the iPhone SE in India in April 2020 for Rs 42,500. It features some of the latest hardware available on Apple’s current flagship line up, the iPhone 11 series but shares the design language of the iPhone 8.
The iPhone SE features a 4.7-inch Retina HD True Tone IPS display with a 750*1334 resolution. Like the iPhone 8, the iPhone SE features thick bezels at the top and bottom of the screen. There is also a solid-state Home Button that houses the Touch ID fingerprint scanner.
While the design may be relatively dated, the performance unit packs Apple’s latest hardware. The iPhone SE features an A13 Bionic chip that is found on the iPhone 11 and the iPhone 11 Pro series. There is also a third-generation Neural Engine for faster and more efficient machine learning.
How to get it for cheap?
To begin with, Apple started assembling iPhone SE in India earlier this year bringing down the costs. The benefits have been passed to the consumers. The prices of all iPhone SE 2020 models listed on Flipkart show a discounted price.

The higher storage options — 128GB and 256GB — are also available at a discounted price of Rs 40,999 and Rs 50,999. iPhone SE 64GB was launched in India for Rs 42,500.
