Apple’s ‘affordable’ smartphone iPhone SE is available at a discounted price of Rs 25,999 (MRP Rs 39,900) for the base 64GB storage model ahead of Flipkart Big Billion Days on October 3. Other variants of the iPhone SE that debuted last year retail for Rs 30,999 for the 128GB storage option and Rs 40,999 for the 256GB option. The sale deals are a part of the current Flipkart Curtain Razr that brings offers on select smartphones and electronics. Notably, customers can take advantage of certain sales offers to lower the price of the iPhone SE.
Both ICICI and Axis Bank credit card users will get up to Rs 1,500 as cashback on orders above Rs 5,000. At the same time, debit card users of the same bank will get a cashback of up to Rs 1,000. If users want to discontinue their old phone, Flipkart is offering an exchange offer of up to Rs 15,000. During our testing, we were getting a discount of around Rs 6,000 by exchanging a iPhone 7 (working conditions). This inevitably brings the price of iPhone SE 18,499 with additional bank offers. Readers should note that different phones have different prices on exchange offers, and devices running iOS usually fetch higher prices after the sale. The smartphone sitting on top of the iPhone 7 (in terms of specs, launch date, etc.) can get more value during the exchange offer. Flipkart lists the phone in Black, Red and White color options.
Apple iPhone SE comes with 4.7-inch Retina HD display and remains one of the rare compact smartphones in this day and age. The display also takes advantage of features like True Tone which adjusts the display according to ambient lighting as well as Dolby Vision and HDR10 compatibility. It runs the Apple A13 Bionic chip, which also powers the Apple iPhone 11 line-up. The A13 Bionic also features a dedicated 8-core neural engine capable of performing 5 trillion operations per second, two machine learning accelerators on the CPU, and a new machine learning controller. There’s also onboard wireless charging along with standard 18W wired charging. Notably, the iPhone SE supports the latest iOS 15 update.
