The iPhone SE is likely coming soon. Possibly is just a few months from now. Apple is yet to confirm the iPhone SE successor but rumours have it that the iPhone SE 2 will launch in the first quarter of next year. A lot has already been talked about the iPhone SE 2 in the past and now a new report reveals some details about the phone’s shipment.
Earlier this week a report suggested that the upcoming iPhone SE 2 will not be as popular as the iPhone SE. The new report builds upon the old one and predicts that the shipment numbers of the iPhone SE 2. It suggests that the shipment of the iPhone SE 2 may be similar to the predecessor iPhone SE.
To recollect, iPhone SE sold around 30 million units in the year of its launch. Kuo predicts that the iPhone SE 2 may also have similar shipment numbers. In other words, Apple is expected to ship around 30 million of the iPhone SE 2 in the first year of the launch, 2020, if everything goes well for the company. This report was first reported by AppleInsider.
According to Kuo, Apple will at least sell 20 million units of the iPhone SE 2 in 2020. And if things go in Apple’s favour the shipment number may increase by another 10 million and that make it a total of 30 million units in a year.
The Cupertino major recently launched three new iPhones — the iPhone 11, the iPhone 11 Pro and the iPhone 11 Pro Max. All the three iPhones are selling well, especially the affordable iPhone 11. That being said, we can say that the upcoming iPhone SE 2 will face competition from the new iPhones, mostly from the iPhone 11. In India, the iPhone 11 is selling like hotcakes and this is clearly due to the value it offers for the “affordable” price.
