The rumors are getting louder, but does this mean that it would lose its exclusivity?

This year, the Apple company launched a strong message by launching the iPhone SE: “We’re Getting Accessible.” The giant likely wants to continue in this line, and there are strong rumors to lower the prices of its equipment even further.
According to the portal wccftechThe rumor started like everything: a thread on Twitter. User MauriQHD claims that the low-cost iPhone could be sold for between $ 200 and $ 300 (about 4,500 and 6,700 Mexican pesos), much cheaper than the $ 399 SE, and wonders what the new model’s software would be .

The information might just remain a rumor, but it clicked with the market experts. Such a launch could mean Apple’s participation in regions where it was previously unsuccessful.
Would exclusivity be affected?
Although the pandemic has not affected the telephone industry as much as others, it cannot be denied that user priorities have changed. So the image of exclusivity and luxury that the iPhone retained was not enough to support the pricing policies they used. Now many have rethought their consumption habits and are unwilling to pay exorbitant amounts for a Smartphone, and this was reflected in the decline in sales.
Although the bet sounds attractive and is a proven formula for the SE, exclusivity is likely to be affected at a lower price. However, given the current market conditions, it can be worth it.
The reality is that smartphone sales fell 13 percent worldwide in the first half of 2020, according to reports channels.
Unfortunately there is no information yet. Only the new model could arrive next year.
