Apple could launch the second-generation iPhone SE as soon as this year, according to a new report, and the name the company picked brings it in line with the other modern iPhones now on sale.

Cupertino-based tech giant Apple has already announced discount on its most affordable iPhone - iPhone XR - in India.

For HDFC Bank debit and credit card users the 128 GB iPhone XR will be available at a price of Rs 58,400, while the 256 GB model can be had for as low as Rs 67,400.

With the discounted price, the iPhone XR pricing in India is in line with what it is priced in the United States.

Finally, iPhone XR (256GB) will be available at a special price of Rs 74,900, against the official price of Rs 91,900. Furthermore, under this restricted time offer, HDFC charge and credit card holders will be qualified for 10 percent extra money back, getting iPhone XR's successful value ln India down to an appealing value of Rs. 53,900.

The iPhone Xr, like iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max, is powered by the 7nm A12 Bionic chip which has a 6-core CPU, a 4-core GPU and comes paired with an 8-core Apple-designed Neural Engine.

Prices for the two other XR variants have also dropped, they said.

Apple is cutting the price of the iPhone XR in India by around a quarter, slashing 17,900 rupees ($259) off the price of the entry-level 64GB iPhone XR.

New rumours indicate Apple could be working on an upgrade to one of its most beloved smartphones, the iPhone SE.
