iPhone SE 2: A US$399 and A13 Bionic-powered iPhone SE successor, but the size of an iPhone 8?
Rumors are still circulating about the possibility of Apple releasing a successor to the iPhone SE, which it originally released over three and a half years ago. Earlier this month analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claimed that an iPhone SE 2 was still on the cards, and now MacRumors is reporting that we will see the device Q1 2020. These are rumors, so we would recommend treating them as such.
Kuo claims that the SE 2 will feature a A13 Bionic SoC, along with 3 GB of LPDDR4X RAM. Apple will apparently sell the device with either 64 GB or 128 GB of storage and in Space Grey, Silver or Red. The 64 GB model supposedly cost US$399, but pricing for the 128 GB model currently remains unknown. If the iPhone 11 pricing is anything to go by, then the 128 GB model will probably cost US$449.
Two areas of contention with the SE 2 may its display and dimensions. According to MacRumors, Kuo has stated that the device will not feature 3D Touch, a feature that Apple has replaced with Haptic Touch. Moreover, the SE 2 will apparently resemble the size of the iPhone 8 rather than the iPhone 5s on which Apple based the iPhone SE.
In short, the iPhone SE 2 will be a smaller edition of the iPhone 11 series, but perhaps not to the same extent as the original SE was. If these rumors prove true, then undoubtedly we will hear more about the iPhone SE 2 in the coming months.
