Buying iPhone is as easy as Chocolate – iPhone 5s to get 50 % price cut


With regard to 4-inch iPhone, KGI Securities has posted some very interesting note in their research note investors. They claim that new iPhone SE would be priced between $400 and $500. They also claim that the new 4-inch iPhone would feature the same 12-megapixel rear camera already found in iPhone 6s. It was expected to be 8-megapixel, but this is new thing we came to know.

KGI Securities is well known for the most accurate information as far as Apple Products are concerned, but it is still rumor that can’t be taken for granted unless Apple makes official announcement. They expect iPhone SE to arrive in March 2016 along with new iPad Pro Mini with 9.7 inches display.

 Along with the release of the new iPhone, KGI also claims that the iPhone 5s will receive a significant price cut. It claims a 50% reduction for the 5s, which currently sells for about $450, pushing the older-generation phone down to around $250. This would be a huge boon for emerging markets, which have shown strong interest in iPhone but high prices have turned a lot of people away. A ‘brand new’ iPhone at $450 and an older model broaching the $200 off-contract price point would push a lot of new customers to iPhone, who aren’t necessarily concerned with waiting for the iPhone 7 or bigger screen (and more pricey)iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s options.

KGI estimates 131% growth in 4-inch iPhone shipments, to around 37 million units in 2016. According to the analyst, most of these sales will come from the substantially cheaper iPhone 5s, not the new 4-inch phone.

Apple is expected to announce the iPhone SE at an event on March 15th, alongside a new 9.7 inch iPad Pro (previously dubbed ‘the iPad Air 3’) with accompanying Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard accessories. It is also prepping a spring refresh of its Apple Watch bands, including new nylon and Space Black Milanese Loop options.
