During the sales period (3 years have passed since the release) users understood that Apple gadgets can be affordable for everyone. Despite the low cost SE has a powerful processor and can be able to perform the most functions that have expensive models.That’s why people can`t wait for the new SE 2. There is suggestion that a price of the gadgets will not exceed $ 399.
