Apple Set to Launch “iPhone SE2” Early Next Year Targetting iPhone 6 Users

iPhone 8S?

iPhone 8 Plus

iPhone 8 PlusAre you an Apple consumer who still misses the iPhone SE, then fret not – Apple is working on “iPhone SE2” that they are planning to launch early next year. According to Ming-Chi Kuo, an Apple analyst, the phone is set to come with an iPhone 8 design, A13 processor(found in the new iPhone 11 series) and 3GB of RAM. It is also reported that it will pack a 4.7″ LCD display with 1334 x 750p resolution (326ppi) and a Touch ID home button.

Is Apple discontinuing the iPhone 8?

The “iPhone SE2” price is estimated to start from $399 for the 32GB variant like the old iPhone SE that Apple discontinued. It is also said that Apple will stop selling the iPhone 8 and that the “iPhone SE2” take its place.

The analyst adds that the “iPhone SE2” will be targetted towards iPhone 6 users as the new iPhone SE rocks even better specifications without the new iPhone features such as FaceID and multi-camera modules. With the bumped up specs, users get a fast and speedy iPhone experience together with the latest iOS 13 features – iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are among the devices that will not be upgraded to iOS 13.

Back to the first sentence, if you missed the compact size of the iPhone SE, the new iPhone SE or “iPhone SE2″ will bring a bigger display(4.7″ compared to the 4”) but is relatively smaller than the new iPhone devices.

Ming-Chi Kuo predicts that Apple will sell 30-to-40 million “iPhone SE2” units throughout next year after it gets launched presumably in March similar to when they launched the original iPhone SE in 2016.
