If information circulating the internet is to be believed, then Apple could launch the iPhone SE 2 in Q1 2020. The smartphone is expected to have a starting price of $399 (Rs 28,350 approx. directly converted) and will come in two storage variants - 64GB and 128GB. In a research note obtained by MacRumors, Ming-Chi Kuo highlights some of the specifications of the smartphone. He says that the device will be powered by the A13 Bionic CPU, the same which is powering the iPhone 11. The SE 2 will have 3GB LPDDR4X RAM along with two storage options - 64GB and 128GB. The smartphone will be available in three colour options - Space Gray, Silver and Red. The device will not support 3D Touch.
There is still crucial information missing from the leak. For starters, we don't know if the size of the display has increased or will remain the same as the original SE. We also don't have information about the camera setup of the smartphone or the display resolution. According to Mac Rumors, “Kuo expects the new iPhone SE 2 will be a popular upgrade option for existing iPhone 6 and iPhone 6S owners.” the iPhone SE had a 4-inch display, which is tiny by today's standards. The iPhone 6 and 6s, both sported a 4.7-inch display. Could this mean that we will see an increase in the size of the iPhone SE display with the SE 2?
When it comes to the current selling iPhones, the iPhone 11 Pro has a 5.8-inch display, the 11 has a 6.1-inch display and the 11 Pro Max has a 6.5-inch display. It could be that the iPhone SE 2 caters to those still looking for a small compact smartphone from Apple.
We’d suggest you take this information with a grain of salt as the iPhone SE 2 has been a part of the rumour mill for years now.
