The concept of “iPhone for the poor” has long been worked on by Apple. At first, they artificially extended the life of frankly outdated smartphones, as was the case with the 2009 iPhone 3GS. Then they released a plastic iPhone 5C, which seemed to be on sale, but the fact that it had no continuation speaks eloquently about its “success”. Finally, in 2016, in Cupertino, they did what the sufferers expected from them — they packed the stuffing of the then-current 6S into the 5S case and called it all iPhone SE. That model gained immense popularity, and users were even upset when the smartphone was discontinued at the end of 2018. But even before this sad moment for poor apple fans, rumors spread about the second generation of SE. He was expected in 2018, in 2019, and, finally, he appeared to the world in 2020. So what did the second coming bring us?
iPhone SE review (2020)
Release date and prices for iPhone SE (2020)
It turns out funny, because it was Apple that made it fashionable for electronics manufacturers to hold “quiet presentations”, when even the expected product just appears on the company’s website. In 2019, there were still those who were dissatisfied with this, but the sad realities of 2020 reconciled them with this practice. The iPhone SE (2020) page appeared on the Apple website on April 15. That’s the whole presentation. In some countries, the smartphone will become available for pre-order on April 17, in Russia it will happen on April 23. And the very next day, on the 24th, sales of SE will start in more than 40 countries.
Insiders who promised a smartphone from Apple for $250 turned out to be far from the truth. In the US, iPhone SE (2020) will be sold from $399 (29.9 thousand rubles at the rate of April 15) for the base 64 GB, $449 (33.6 thousand rubles) for 128 GB and $549 (41.1 thousand rubles). rubles) will be asked for 256 GB. For a Russian buyer, the phone will cost even more — 40, 45, and 54 thousand rubles. Well, what can I say, the price tag for us has clearly been adjusted by economic reality and the falling ruble. However, in 2016, for a 16 GB SE, they asked for 38 thousand rubles at the start.
