The iPhone SE 2020 could see a massive price drop more akin to the original iPhone SE before it was discontinued. While the world prepares for the 5G iPhone SE 3, rumours now suggest that Apple could continue to sell the older iPhone SE 2020 at an even lower price. How low, you ask? Prices are expected to go under $200, which means markets like India could expect to see a brand-new iPhone in India for less than Rs. 20,000 after a long time. And this is all while the iPhone SE 3 takes care of the sub- 40,000 space.

Bloomberg's Mark Gurman says in one of his latest reports that the iPhone SE 2020 could see a massive price drop after the March 8 Spring event. Apple will announce the iPhone SE 3 as its most affordable 5G smartphone and drop the prices of the iPhone SE 4G variant at the same time. The sole reason behind this is Apple wanting to make the iPhone more accessible so as to rope in more customers to try its other services.

iPhone SE under Rs. 20,000 could be a reality

The iPhone SE 2020 has seen mega price cuts throughout its two-year lifecycle. Originally launched at a starting price of Rs. 43,000, several e-commerce sales over the years have seen the iPhone SE prices go as low as 26,000. At the moment, the base 64GB variant of the iPhone SE is selling at Rs. 30,000.

The last time an iPhone was available in India for this low as the original iPhone SE. After two years of sales, the tiny iPhone SE often sold for as low as Rs. 15,000 during Flipkart sales. With the current iPhone SE, Apple would want to take on the budget Android smartphones. Even though the iPhone SE 2020 lacks some of the modern features, such as an edge-to-edge display, a big battery and fast charging, it is still one of the fastest smartphones you can buy at its price.

Meanwhile, the iPhone SE 3 itself is expected to have a sub-$300 price tag. The updates iPhone SE 3 is likely to get a chip upgrade – from the ageing A13 to Apple's latest A15 Bionic. Note that the A15 chip powers the iPhone 13 series at the moment, and supports 5G networks. The rest of the phone is said to remain unchanged from the iPhone SE 2020. That means you can expect to see the same 4.7-inch LCD display with fat bezels on the top and bottom, a single rear camera, and possibly the same IP67 water and dust resistance.
