New Delhi: Apple's iPhone SE that has created a lot of buzz ever since it was launched last month is ready to hit Indian stores on Friday.
In a bid to grab a bigger share of the booming Indian smartphone, Apple will sell the iPhone SE in India at Rs 39,000, a price higher than that of existing models.
Beetel Teletech and Redington are the distributors of iPhone SE in India.
The phone has a four-inch screen, comes in four stainless- steel finishes and incorporates a faster A9 processor. It sports a fingerprint scanner, 12-megapixel iSight camera, featuring Live Photos and faster wireless as well as Apple Pay.
