Apple May Face Challenges In Indian Mobile Market

The Latest Insights from International Online Marketing

Apple is launching its new iPhone SE smartphone, but analysts are predicting it may struggle in the Indian market. The iPhone SE has a 4 inch screen, the same quality processor and camera as is found in the iPhone 6, Apple Pay and Live Photos support, 16GB worth of storage and a touch ID fingerprint sensor. It does not have 3D Touch capabilities. The smartphone is cheaper than a typical iPhone, costing just 450 US dollars, implying that it is aimed at emerging developing markets with a strong desire for cheap smartphones. Analysts think that it may struggle in the Indian market, however, due to two factors. The first is its 4 inch screen. Large screened smartphones, or “phablets”, are extremely popular in India, meaning that buying a smartphone with a much smaller than average screen may be an unappealing prospect for many Indians. The second problem is that there are many similarly-priced but better quality and larger-screened smartphones in the Indian market. The iPhone 6 is available for a similar price on Indian ecommerce sites, and Samsung, Sony and Nexus smartphones are also available in the same price range.
