Apple may kill its iPhone SE with the new releases this year
Apple may be facing disappointment with its recently launched iPhone X sales, but it is preparing to add new phones in the lineup. According to a report published by Bloomberg, the iPhone maker is coming up with three new iPhones. All the three new iPhones are expected to hit the market in the fall. These new devices include Apple’s biggest display iPhone ever to challenge Samsung’s recently launched Galaxy S9.
The upcoming new iPhone models also include an upgraded version of the iPhone X with the similar display and an affordable model borrowing some of the key features of X. The display of the larger iPhone is expected to be 6.5 inches, according to the analysts, which is even larger than the Samsung Galaxy S9 of 6.2-inch display. However, Samsung launched its Galaxy S9 last week and now it is all set to launch its Note series model in the fall. So, it won't be a shocker if the company comes with a bigger display to fight Apple’s new iPhones.
According to a report from IDC, the sales of the global mobile market experienced a drop of 0.1 percent last year. Where Apple seems to increase its shipment by 1.9 percent and Samsung to expand the shipping count by only 0.2 percent. This brings the need for introducing more alluring features and capturing design to increase the numbers in the mobile market. The iPhone X sales failed to meet Apple's expectation in the last quarter, even with the Christmas holidays.
Most of the analysis and experts see this as company's targeted move to grab the market at larger scale. The upcoming iPhone trio includes a bigger display, a cheaper model and an iPhone X upgrade which is a balanced offering from Apple. The company is expecting a lot with its cheaper model from the countries like India and China as they own the largest market. However, the new arrival may slash the older models in the lineup, like “iPhone SE” that Apple is holding for a long time now.
All the three models are in testing phase with the suppliers, but the announcement may slip from fall to the later this year. There has been no official information from Apple yet as Apple is likely to keep its upcoming products as a secret.
