iPhone SE 2 has been in rumors for quite a while now and people thought that Apple had given up on the idea. However, recent research notes by the prominent Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo suggests that the iPhone SE 2 will be launched in the spring of 2020.
Fans were looking for an all-display iPhone SE with thin bezels and no home button, but Apple reportedly has other plans. The design of the device will resemble the iPhone 8 design with a physical home button.
iPhone SE 2 Rumored Specs and Design
According to Kuo, the iPhone SE 2 will house an A13 processor along with 3 GB RAM. This time the iPhone SE 2 will not focus on a smaller form factor like the iPhone SE, rather it will focus on a low price point. There are still many people who are using the iPhone 6 and the iPhone SE 2 is made for them.
Some customers do not want to upgrade from the iPhone 8 due to a lack of the home button and the iPhone SE 2 can be an appropriate device for them. According to Kuo, the phone is aimed at people who are looking for a budget smartphone and don’t care much about features like a multi-camera setup and Face ID. It will be the perfect minimalist smartphone.
The report suggests that the iPhone SE 2 will sell over 40 million units in 2020. Apple will use sourcing parts from suppliers like FII, Catcher, and Jabil for casts and casing parts.
The device was earlier rumored to have a 4.7-inch display and a home button with touch ID similar to that on the iPhone 8. The primary camera will be a single camera at the back of the device instead of a multiple-camera setup which is common in today’s smartphones.
iPhone SE Specifications and Pricing
The predecessor to the rumored device was the iPhone SE. It was launched in March 2016 with prices starting from $399 for the 16 GB variant. It had a single 12MP primary camera and a 1.2MP front camera. It had an Apple A9 chipset and 2GB RAM. It had a 1624mAh battery and a fingerprint sensor on the home button. The device was discontinued in September 2018 which left the fans of small and low-cost Apple smartphones in despair.
