Apple's new 4-inch smartphone iPhone SE had received over 3.4 million orders in the Chinese market.

According to statistics provided by Chinese retailers, the gold iPhone SE is the most popular among Chinese consumers, followed by rose gold. The price of 16GB iPhone SE is USD399 and the 64GB edition is sold at USD499.

Emerging markets, including China, Brazil, Russia, and India, are reportedly the core markets for the iPhone SE, because it is the cheapest iPhone ever launched by Apple. Moreover, the iPhone SE may attract potential users who purchase smartphones for the first time or previously used low-end Android phones.

The iPhone SE previously started accepting orders in 13 countries and regions in North America, Europe, and Asia. Over the next few weeks, it will also be available in 47 other countries and regions.

The 4-inch iPhone SE adopts an A9 processor and an iSight camera with 12 million pixels. Its hardware configuration is basically the same as iPhone 6S, except for screen size.
