We haven’t heard many details About the iPhone SE 3 except that it will arrive early next year with 5G support, but that has not stopped analysts at JP Morgan from predicting its success.
If the mediation is right, the iPhone SE could get over a billion “non-privileged Android users” to switch sides.
Admittedly, Apple’s hardware trade-in program for non-iPhones isn’t as attractive as the iPhone trade-in values, but it can lead to an average starting price range of $269 to $399 for the 5G iPhone SE, which is still very competitive. Samik Chatterjee said, according to Reuters.
Feeling optimistic about Apple’s upcoming phone, JP Morgan revised its fiscal 2022 iPhone SE sales forecast to 30 million units and total iPhone shipments to 250 million units, up 10 million from the previous year.
The current iPhone SE price starts at $399, making it the least expensive iOS device Apple is still selling before the $499 iPhone 11. Flaunting the latest models means spending $799 on the iPhone 13.
Factor in a deal as JP Morgan suggests and the iPhone SE 3 could creep into the budget phone category, an area that Android phone makers like Samsung, Motorola and Huawei have quietly fought in for the past several years.
On a separate note, JPMorgan says customer demand for 5G models will remain strong and will be a priority for supply. What has not been discussed is whether Apple will be able to keep up with this expected demand given the complexities caused by the ongoing shortage of chips. Apple was a better performance than others but in the end I succumbed to delays of several months for many of its products, including the iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch.
Apple does not disclose product information until its launch events. But Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo noted, And also Macotakara, a Apple’s Japanese blog, claims that the iPhone SE 3 will have a 4.7-inch LCD screen, 5G support, and an unnamed upgraded processor.
The folks at JP Morgan are better than me at predicting these things, but part of me thinks the iPhone SE’s small screen size can deter Android users from jumping ship. I recently noticed when helping someone buy a phone for under $250 that almost every Android option has a screen that’s 6 inches or larger. Some customers may want to downsize, but What happened to the iPhone 12 mini He suggests that we believe bigger is always better.
