iPhone SE (2020) Is Now Being Assembled in India
Apple has started producing the iPhone SE (2020) in India. The new development comes a little over four months after the launch of the latest iPhone model in the country. The local manufacturing of the iPhone SE (2020), which has commenced at a Wistron facility in Karnataka, would help Apple avoid an import duty of 20 percent that mobile phone manufacturers need to pay for importing their models from global markets. Apart from the iPhone SE (2020), the Cupertino giant has been producing five iPhone models domestically in the country, including the last year’s iPhone 11.
In a statement emailed to Gadgets 360, Apple said, “iPhone SE packs our most powerful chip into our most popular size at our most affordable price and we’re excited to be making it in India for our local customers.”
Apple hasn’t provided any details about when it would start selling locally manufactured iPhone SE (2020) units in India. However, considering previous records, fresh stock with an “Assembled in India” label is likely to hit stores in the country in the coming weeks. You can also expect some discount on iPhone SE (2020) price in India, thanks to the new move.
