MANILA, Philippines – Prices for this year’s iPhones have been released by Apple on their product website.
The base iPhone 11 model’s price will start at P47,990. In Apple’s price tiers, the base iPhone 11 replaces the iPhone XR, which started at 50,990 last year, meaning the “budget” current-generation iPhone model is cheaper this year. The XR continues to be in production though, with prices starting at P40,990. (READ: iPhone XR vs. iPhone 11: Which should you get?)

The original iPhone SE, which launched in 2016, cost just $400 — the iPhone SE 2 could come in around a similar price point, well below the $700 price of Apple’s new iPhone 11.
According to TF Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo via 9to5Mac, the new iPhone SE will arrive in the first quarter of 2020.
Moreover, Kuo, who has a good track record for reporting about upcoming Apple products, says the new iPhone SE will resemble an iPhone 8 but it’ll have the same chip powering it as the iPhone 11 — Apple’s A13 — and 3GB of RAM.
Apple has yet to officially announce a new iPhone SE model, but this is the second such credible report to suggest one is in the works. In September, the Japanese newspaper Nikkei published a report suggesting Apple was working on the rumored device.
Representatives for Apple didn’t respond to a request for comment as of publishing.
