Welcome to the next round of the rumour mill. This time we’ve got details on the iPhone SE2. And of course, there’s an analyst (Ming-Ching Kuo) involved. According to Kuo, we’ll see the SE2 in January next year, and it’ll pack similar tech to the iPhone 11.
It’ll also sport a familiar design. No, not the giant notch Apple introduced with the X, but rather the old iPhone 8 design and form factor. Under the hood, it’ll be powered by Apples brilliant A13 chip. Yeah, the one it’s got in the iPhone 11-range.
Kuo also said in a note seen by MacRumours that the iPhone SE2 will also pack 3GB of RAM, and it’ll feature a 4.7in display as well as a Touch ID home button.
“We forecast that Apple will launch the more affordable iPhone SE2 in 1Q20. For the most part, the form factor design and hardware spec are similar to iPhone 8’s. The most significant hardware spec upgrade will be the adoption of the A13 processor and 3GB LPDDR4X. [The] iPhone SE2 will likely increase iPhone’s market share and benefit Apple’s promotions for service and content. We expect that the iPhone SE2 shipment will reach 30–40mn units in 2020,” the statement reads.
Kuo is convinced the iPhone SE2 will be the natural upgrade choice for current iPhone 6 owners. Especially those who are after the increased power but don’t want to invest in an iPhone 11. Fair enough.
