New rumors about the iPhone SE 2 speak of a design based on the iPhone 8, a starting price of $ 400, memory configurations of 64 and 128 gigabytes, a waiver of 3D touch and a red color option.
The well-known for his Apple predictions analyst Ming-Chi Kuo had also already announced a release date of the iPhone SE 2 for the first quarter of 2020, after it had initially been assumed that the entry-level iPhone after the launch of the iPhone 11 and 11 Pro (test) no successor is obtained.
Case of the iPhone 8, technology of the iPhone 11
The first iPhone SE (test) put on the housing of the iPhone 5S and the technology of the iPhone 6s. The iPhone SE 2, which should be available in silver, gray and red, is now set to the housing of the iPhone 8 and technology of the iPhone 11. The starting price for the 64-gigabyte model in the US is $ 399 without taxes. A price for the 128-gigabyte model Kuo does not yet. The iPhone 8 with 64 gigabytes currently costs at Apple officially $ 449.
As SoC, the new A13 Bionic will be used, which is also in the iPhone 11 and 11 Pro. Memory is currently rumored to be 3 gigabytes, which would be 1 gigabyte less than the new iPhone 11 models. As with these Apple should renounce the iPhone SE2 on 3D Touch.
30 million iPhone SE 2 in 2020
Suppliers are said to have received information from Apple to produce between 2 and 4 million units per month. Kuo expects sales of around 30 million iPhone SE 2 units by 2020.
The first iPhone SE also appeared in 2016 for $ 399 at 16 gigabytes of internal memory. Lack of successor, it was sold from 2017 by Apple with 32 gigabytes of memory for 349 US dollars. A year later with the presentation of the iPhone Xs (Max) (test), the iPhone SE was then officially discontinued without successor.
