iPhone SE 2 might be coming next year


We can hope that Apple will once again make a budget phone once again. Information leaking out of the company’s supply chain shows that there could be an iPhone SE 2 coming in 2020.

According to analysts with Barclays, Apple intends to take the iPhone 8’s parts and remake them into an iPhone SE 2.

However, only “a few suppliers” did actually know about this plan. Whether this is true or just a rumor, it is now anyone’s guess. Reports of Apple’s plans often leak out of the network of companies in Asia that supply iPhone components, but they aren’t always accurate.

There’s demand for an iPhone SE 2

The original iPhone SE was a bare-bones handset with a 4-inch screen and a $399 price. It launched back in 2016 and was discontinued last fall. There have been rumors of an updated version for years, even while the original was still available.

If the new model really is based on the iPhone 8, it will have an Apple A11 Bionic processor, 3GB of RAM and 64GB of storage.

The information coming from the Barclays analysts indicates that the iPhone SE 2 will only use the internals. The analysts said nothing about price, but a serious replacement for the SE would have to be somewhere near $399. To get that price, Apple would have to use a smaller, lower-resolution screen. And Touch ID is more likely than Face ID.

The release date is said to be early 2020, so this wouldn’t be tied to the much more powerful iOS handsets expected for that fall.
