IPhone SE 2 rumored to launch in mid

That will all change early next year according to a new report from the Economic Daily News. They are still clinging to the iPhone SE but that will soon turn 2-years old – right on time for an upgrade? The Apple iPhone X will retail for the same ₹89,000 and ₹1,02,000 for the 64 GB and the 256 GB storage variants.

Considering the fact that, the Apple iPhone X is priced at a much higher price tag than that of the U.S. and United Kingdom pricing, this move might cause a lot of chaos in the smartphone market and might make them lose interest in selling the smartphone. "How on earth do they expect the retailer to work for them for free - our overheads are anywhere around 10%", Chandra explained.

While some retail chains have stopped stocking iPhone Xs across their stores in India, those in the unorganised trade are also complaining about Apple's move to cut margins when supply is already low.

Offline retailers seem to face other challenges such as cashbacks and other discounts on iPhones, including the iPhone X, offered by online retailers making it hard for them to be in competition.

"India should rank very high on Apple's priority index.it is yet to have a single owned and operated retail store in India", said Manjunath Bhat, research director at Gartner based out of Singapore.

Some Apple fans are hoping Apple will put an iPhone X-style edge-to-edge display on the iPhone SE 2, but it sounds like that won't happen next year. In fact, India was among the initial 55 countries that saw the launch of the iPhone X on November 3. So much so, that some are considering to pull down the pricey iPhone X off store shelves.

In contrast to this, Chinese smartphone maker, Xiaomi and Korean smartphone giant Samsung pay twice the retail amount Apple offers.

According to ET, a retailer was supposed to receive 400 units of iPhone X after three weeks of launch, however, he received far less than expected.
