How is their deal the cheapest? Xo48 is only $2 less than M1 add on plan of $50 and the data is only a pathetic 5+5gb.

I calculated TCOS, going for retail and SIM only is still $100 cheaper than M1 based on a $25/mth SIM only.
The XO78 is cheap.

Does it work with iPhone 7 or 6S cases as well? The back camera cutout

Yes iPhone 8 cases and tempered glass should the work and fit with the SE (2020).

(Product) Red iPhone SE 2020 128GB shipping date has dropped to 28-Apr ~ 06-May.

Guess thats the popular option.

The rest still 24-Apr.
maybe red has lesser stocks than other colours?

ya sia. why starhub don't carry 256gb. sigh... planning to recon that
yes, very funny. no 256gb. actually buy with contract, it is more worth it to get 256gb since the price gap is less than $170 comparing to 128gb model at retail price.

i think my iphone 7 cant survive till end of year so thinking of buying SE 2 (since i dont do much with my phone and i prefer touch ID), but comparing the dimensions, SE 2 is bigger, wider, thicker by at most 0.3mm as compared to IP7. but not sure if the casing will still fit.. :\ even though the difference consider insignificant
i am still using iphone 6 plus for my secondary phone. and it is still good.

I had seen cases that said it fit ip7 or ip8.

So it should work.

I try to book from Apple site but need to call them during weekdays.

India made iphones generally for their own market due to taxes, but you'll see on the box Made in India if the SE is really made there.

Sgp set - 1x eSIM & 1x Nano SIM
HK set - 2x Nano SIM

both type considered as dual SIM
http://www.apple.com/hk/iphone-se/specs/

HK set is also Nano + eSIM

Only iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone 11 Pro Max, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR supports Dual SIM Nano. In fact, iPhone SE 2 in China supports only 1 x Nano SIM.

Not too optimistic about the battery life since the tech specs quotes "lasts about the same as iPhone 8". Biggest drawback for me is the lack of night mode for the camera.
With the A13 chip the phone is definitely capable of night mode but sadly Apple won't want to cannibalise their sales of the other models. I'm sure A12 is capable of night mode as well given how good Apple SoCs are but still night mode is exclusive to the 11 series only.

obviously apple will need to justify the close to/more than 2X price one will pay for the iPhone 11/11 Pro/Pro Max.

however, if you compare the iphone 8 selling price (2 years ago phone) which was still selling at apple website few days back, price is still higher than the new SE.

iPhone 8 $729.00 (2020)
iPhone SE $649.00 (2020)

You save $80 and get the following extras
  1. A13 vs A11. (Same price which you last you more than 2 years longer of iOS support than iPhone 8)
  2. Wi-Fi 6 vs Wi-Fi 5
  3. Best-ever single-camera system for great photos and video (with this statement it should hint that it will be even better than iPhone XR)
  4. Portrait Mode (limited to people), Portrait Lighting, Smart HDR, and QuickTake video.
  5. Portrait videos with the 7MP, f/2.2 selfie camera
  6. 40 percent decrease in price for AppleCare
  7. 3GB Ram vs 2GB Ram
  8. 256GB option

Due to subsidy from telcos, most people are still opting for high-end iphones.

Afterall, it is releatively easier to own an iphone in lion city comparing to any other countries.
