Just a month back, Apple Premium Reseller Switch announced the availability of the “special edition” 32GB iPhone 6. Together with the base 16GB iPhone SE model, the two are the cheapest iPhones you can buy. The good news is, Switch has revealed it slashing the 4.7-incher’s MYR1,999 price a further MYR300.
The iPhone 6 is now officially the cheapest “new” iPhone you can buy, after the discontinuation of the base 16GB iPhone SE. The available 32GB iPhone SE retails at MYR1,949.
The special edition new iPhone comes only in gold trim, and features 3-year old specs. It packs a 4.7-inch Retina HD display, 64-bit A8 chip, 8MP main shooter, TouchID and a 1,810mAh battery.
Sure, it’s pretty old in terms of today’s specs, but it still runs the current iOS 10 well. It would have been nice if it featured the iPhone SE’s internals, though. The iPhone SE, as you know, is like a “Baby Godzilla,” sharing much of its underpinnings with last year’s flagship – iPhone 6s.
Apple has streamlined its iPhone product line in terms of storage, with a minimum 32GB across the board.
At MYR1,699 the 32GB iPhone 6 looks like a great buy for those wanting to jump into the iOS ecosystem for the first time. The question is, would you trade this for a more powerful iPhone SE with a smaller display?
