Strong rumors have again surfaced on Apple’s plans to launch a slightly revamped budget model smartphone, the iPhone SE 2. We have been keeping you posted on how the company has been aggressively pushing the old iPhone SE stocks with some attractive price-off offers and monthly payment schemes and so on. This has probably stoked these rumors further and the latest leaks ready with some specifications.
The A11 Processor is Being Predicted
These reports that have emerged with some kind of confidence in their veracity since they have gone on to suggest some key specs the iPhone SE 2 is expected to be released with. These include the in-house A11 processor and a bump in the RAM to 3 GB. Apple will stick to a single camera on the iPhone SE 2 if you go by these rumors. The other guess is that the display size may be kept at 4.2 inches, just a marginal increase from 4 inches of the iPhone SE. There won’t be any major tinkering with the basic design of the phone like introducing a notch, etc. The reports say there will be the normal slot for the speaker and the front camera but there won’t be the Face ID option on this phone.
Still Some Questions Unanswered
Even of you accept these speculations as at least partially reliable, there are still a couple of areas where there is no clarity and about which the market will be quite eager to learn. One is what kind of a timeline will the company follow in announcing the new iPhone SE 2. Will it be along with the proposed event in March for the release of the tablets. These columns had carried the reports earlier of how Apple is expected to introduce revamped iPad Mini 5 and the regular iPad will also be upgraded in some areas and unveiled at that event. Will Apple include the iPhone SE 2 in that event.
And then the most important of all, what kind of pricing strategy will be followed? Will the price of the iPhone SE 2 be the same as that of the iPhone SE? Will it be less or a few dollars more? None of these has been clarified so far. More rumors may come out in the coming days to put things in better perspective.
