The cheap iPhone arrives in Argentina: how much does it cost?

The new SE (2020) or also known in the market as the “cheap” iPhone for being the device more accessible within the range of smartphones from Apple, will be at sale in our country from next week.

The iPhone SE has the same brain as the iPhone 11 Pro: the A13 Bionic chip, the fastest that exists in a smartphone according to the Cupertino giant on its website. Although it will not have the hardware and software elements of a high-end, Apple hopes that everyone will have the possibility of being able to access the device without losing the quality that characterizes them.

The company ensures that the new SE has nothing to envy to other models of the brand and users will be able to perform multiple tasks with total fluidity.


For those who already want to buy this device, they can already do so on platforms such as Mercado Libre and other sites that import cell phones and electronics. However, the official sale of the new SE will be made through resellers authorized in Argentina. In this case, the one that will start with the sale is MacStation.

On the other hand, mobile phone operators have not made an official announcement about the availability of this device and the sale price in their catalogs.

In terms of design, the new SE has a small size compared to the current average and can be operated with one hand, but what is striking is its front camera. In the middle of the era of drop-shaped notches, cameras poking out of a hole and removable modules, the SE arrives with an appearance that goes against current designs, something that many users already noted when they encountered its notorious frames.


How much does it cost?

The reference value is $ 83,000 for the 64 GB version and $ 94,999 for the 128 GB version. In the United States it is sold for USD 400, about $ 40,000 to the “solidarity” dollar and $ 52,000 if the free dollar is taken into account, or blue. They offer a guarantee of one year and 12 installments (with an extra 12%). It comes in black, white and red colors.

Like any product that comes from abroad, import duties must be added to the reference price. In general, this type of electronic device has to pay a 20% fee, plus 21% VAT and internal taxes of 10% and is covered by non-automatic licenses. That is, the sale price could exceed $ 100,000 pesos.

Resellers hope to sell about 400 computers of this model per month and are aimed at the adolescent public and all those who want to access an Apple device.
