Apple To Start Production Of iPhone SE In India
Apple is set to begin its iPhone SE production in India. The Cupertino-based company aims to start production of the entry-level handsets this April. The manufacturer, Wistron, will handle iPhone SE at its new plant in Karnataka, Bangalore.
iPhone SE; Indian Plant, Taiwanese Manufacturer
According to CNBC, Wistron Corp is a Taiwanese manufacturing partner of the tech giant, which focuses on assembling the iPhones. The company targets a final output of 300,000 to 400,000 units. Wistron and Apple aim to manufacture lower-priced iPhone, which production is set to start before the Indian government decides the last decision on Apple's proposed economic concessions.
Concession: Low-Cost Labor
Apple is setting plans for tax breaks and lower duty rates, as per Reuters. The initial manufacturing of the iPhone SE may not be contingent on those concessions. It was also reported that Apple shipped 2.5 million iPhones to India last year. It was previously reported that Apple aims to avoid import obligations, which diminish the cost of its products within the country.
Assembled In India, Sold In India
In the fourth quarter, Apple ranked 10th in the Indian market, which led to 62 percent of the market share. The market researcher, Counterpoint, revealed that smartphones sold in India were made locally. iPhone SE sold at $582 upon its launching and then dropped to about $447 for the 64 GB variant. Local manufacturing and tax benefits could lower the smartphone's price by 12 percent, in a market that offers many more affordable smartphone options.
iPhone SE; Reinvented Specs
The iPhone SE is Apple's 4-inch handset, which is well-designed and reinvented. The iPhone SE has a 12-MP camera, which captures excellent photos and can record 4K videos. It has an advanced A9 chip, which was used in iPhone 6S.
The iPhone SE features Live Photos and 4-inch Retina display, which makes images look vibrant and sharp. It has 64-bit chip, which has excellent graphics performance. It also has an M9 motion coprocessor, which features accelerometer, compass and gyroscope.
