iphone SE gets bumper reservations in China reported: Apple at its Cupertino headquarters unveiled its much-talked-about iPhone SE stylish smartphone, offering a cheaper, smaller display iPhone to users who have been asking for it ever since the iPhone 6 launched. Although the Cupertino-based firm has further revealed nothing more than the handset’s launch timeline and prices, a report now suggests that the device has already crossed over 3.4 million reservations in China.

In addition the report by CNBC adds that these reservation numbers for the iPhone SE (Hands On) are not worldwide but only for China. It should be pointed out that in China the ‘reservation’ process does not include exchange of money until the actual purchase, unlike with ‘pre-orders’ where the customers have to pay before getting their hands on the device.
It meant that users can reserve an iPhone SE for now but might change their minds later. Although the 3.4 million reservation number is impressive and yet incredible, we are yet to witness how many will actually be converted into a successful purchase users.
The Apple report says that out of all the reservations, the iPhone SE (Pictures) handset’s Gold color variant has been the most popular among the kids, followed by the Rose Gold variant among adults. The smartphone in China comes at a market price of CNY 3,288 (roughly Rs. 33,650).
It will start shipping delivery to buyers. Apple had stated at the time of the global launch last week. The iPhone SE will be available in India starting April 8 with a price that starts at Rs. 39,000 approx.
