iPhone SE 2 could be launched by Apple in March 2020 and will sell in the millions
It’s taken a while, a long while, but it seems Apple is finally preparing a sequel to the highly popular compact smartphone iPhone SE. The device, which was released in 2016, was positively received but it was officially discontinued at the end of 2018 with no official word of a successor. However, Ming-Chi Kuo has previously commented that an iPhone SE 2 would see the light of day in the first quarter of next year.
The analyst now claims that Apple is preparing to take the iPhone SE 2, or whatever name it may end up inheriting, into mass production by January 2020 followed by a launch at the end of March 2020. We already reported on the expected hardware, but as a reminder the SE 2 is expected to come with a 4.7-inch display and a speedy A13 Bionic SoC.
Along with the classy chip and handy size, the iPhone SE 2 is also believed to be coming with 3 GB of LPDDR4X RAM and storage options of 64 GB and 128 GB. It’s a promising set of specifications for fans of the original iPhone SE who don't set much store in huge figures for memory and storage. Interestingly, Kuo has predicted that Apple will ship two to four million units of the iPhone SE 2 per month, which if accurate would mean the Cupertino-based company expects high initial sales figures for this particular iPhone.
