It is no secret that iPhones are getting expensive and the sales are in decline. To give it a boost to the sales, the iPhone maker is reportedly working on a cheap and smaller iPhone.
Sources close to the development said that it will be a successor to the iPhone SE but is named iPhone XE and not iPhone SE2. This will feature a 4.7-inch screen is likely to cost around $600, way cheaper than iPhone X, iPhone XR, and iPhone XS.
The new affordable iPhone, iPhone XE will feature the same bezel-less design as the X and XS with a notch for Face ID, a single 12MP rear camera (the primary shooter from the XS/XR) and an A12 Bionic chip, reports Forbes.
Interestingly enough, the new iPhone XE will get a new manufacturer named Winstron and not Foxconn who usually manufacture iPhones. Sources revealed that Foxconn will be busy manufacturing the flagship iPhones in India and, hence, the contract went to Winstron.
Apple is expected to promote the smartphone as an entry-level iPhone much like how it did with the SE.
