Apple iPhone SE Now Available for Purchase at a Staggering Low Price of Rs. 19999

While nothing is set in stone yet, the iPhone 8 is shaping up to be one of the most impressive and groundbreaking iPhone releases yet. (NASDAQ:AAPL) rumor mill today is news of the iPhone 8's design. This meant that the front and back will have an all glass design along with a curved display.

As for the AR glasses that Apple is reportedly planning to bring to market, the paper believes that they will have to be tethered to the iPhone, much like the Apple Watch. For its back, the device is said to feature a 3D glass material, which would make it resemble the original iPhone's case. Apple, of course, will put its own spin on what we've seen already, likely mixing designs from the iPhone 4 and iPhone 7.

There has also been speculation that the 2017 iPhone will be celebrated and introduced as a 10th anniversary device, and in that light, an homage to the original iPhone makes some sense, but these design rumors should be viewed with some skepticism until confirmed by additional sources. Despite adopting an OLED display for the first time, Apple won't have a curved display like the Galaxy Edge.

Syracuse Blows Out Iowa State
Syracuse held close with the Huskies out of the gate-it was still a two-point game with just under six minutes left in the half. Ruthy Hebard had 20 points and 15 rebounds, and OR earned its first Sweet 16 berth by upsetting Duke at Durham, North Carolina.

While Apple has not announced any official price cut for the iPhone SE - the 16GB variant has still got an MRP of Rs 39,000 and 64GB variant of Rs 44,000.

Apple had released the iPhone SE launched nearly exactly a year ago, with the India launch happening in early April. The iPhone SE cash back offer is not open to American Express customers.

Nonetheless, the deal is a great one for Apple lovers. The iPhone 8 may also have a bigger battery for a longer life and internal storage options of up to 256GB. The iPhone SE 6 4GB variant will take on the likes of Xiaomi Mi 5 (Rs 22,999), Moto Z Play (Rs 24,999), Sony Xperia X (Rs 24,999), Google Nexus 5X (Rs 24,999), and OnePlus 2 (Rs 22,999 for 32 GB ROM, 4GB RAM). But it is still unknown whether the AR features will be integrated in this year's iteration of the device.
