A new report has stated that Apple could be planning on releasing three iPhones in 2020 that all feature OLED panels, which will probably be supplied by Samsung. As one of the 2020 phones is rumored to be coming in a 5.42-inch size, there has been speculation this could be a next-generation iPhone SE.

In 2018, Apple released the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR. While the two XS models sported OLED screens, the iPhone XR came with an LCD. According to a supply chain source, the company is planning on continuing the same two OLED/one LCD format for its 2019 iPhone releases but will then move to OLED panels for all of its three 2020 iPhones.

Along with revealing Apple’s intentions to move completely to OLED screens, the source also stated the expected sizes of the 2020 devices. It seems the three iPhones will offer 5.42-in, 6.06-in, and 6.67-in displays. The latter two sizes fit in with current iPhone dimensions: 5.8-in iPhone XS, 6.1-in iPhone XR, 6.5-in iPhone XS Max. But the 5.42-inch offering is noticeably smaller, which has led some to proclaim this could be a next-generation iPhone SE, or the iPhone SE 2.

This could be just wishful thinking though. There’s no doubt there are many who would love to see Apple bring out a sequel to the diminutive and popular iPhone SE. But that phone had a 4.0-in display diagonal, which is obviously much smaller than the reported 5.42 inches for the 2020 device. One of the main selling points of the iPhone SE was its compact size; a 5.42-in iPhone SE 2 would have to bring different USPs to the table.
