Just as reports have started coming in of sales of iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro launched last month picking up, there’s news of the iPhone SE2 making its appearance, come 2020. This is not the first time you are hearing about the iPhone SE2 on Apple’s radar for a possible release. This is the second wave of iPhone SE2 rumors in the recent past. The latest information has come courtesy of Ming-Chi Kuo who invariably gets it right when it comes to Apple’s plans. Here are some of the highlights of what Ming-Chi Kuo had to say on the iPhone SE2.
Broad Specs Expected
The iPhone SE2 is being predicted to be fitted with the A13 Bionic chipset. This is the latest version of the processor developed by Apple and is considered to be technologically quite advanced. The RAM is likely to be 3 GB LPDDR4X. Apple has used this RAM in the current iPhone 11 as well. As for form factor, there have been hints that the company may go back to the iPhone 8’s flat design for this successor to the iPhone SE. Though the exact display size is not revealed, Kuo says the phone will have Touch ID and not Face ID. The report goes on to say that users have been happier with the Touch ID and it will be a welcome change. These advocates of Touch ID even predict that Apple could bring back Touch ID for the regular iPhone 12 series next year.
Speculation on Pricing of the iPhone SE2
The most talked-about part of the iPhone SE2 release could be its pricing. You can only speculate now with no other information emerging from official sources. Based on several factors, including the current prices of comparable models of iPhones in the market, it may be safe to assume that Apple may settle for a price in the region of $500. If this happens, you may find the prediction by Ming-Chi Kuo that Apple will sell 40 million pieces of this phone, credible. This figure must be appreciated in the context of the actual sale figure of 48 million between the much-celebrated iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max after launch till June this year.
This new development comes even as people are awaiting more details on what the 2020 iPhones will bring to the table. There have been many rumors earlier. The introduction of the 5G-enabled iPhone is one major attraction. These may be good days for Apple again of all these developments run smoothly one after the other.
