Apple arranges to release a lower-priced “iPhone SE 2” in the first quarter of 2020, according to well-known analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. In a research note with TF International Securities, obtained by MacRumors, Kuo said the new Apple device to feature the same design as iPhone 8, with A13 chips and 3GB RAM.
We forecast that Apple will launch the more affordable iPhone SE2 in 1Q20. For the most part, the form factor design and hardware spec are similar to iPhone 8’s. The most significant hardware spec upgrade will be the adoption of the A13 processor and 3GB LPDDR4X. iPhone SE2 will likely increase iPhone’s market share and benefit Apple’s promotions for service and content. We expect that the iPhone SE2 shipment will reach 30–40mn units in 2020.
Kuo believes the device to be the best upgrades for an estimated 100 million remaining iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus users, serving as a “key growth driver” for Apple in 2020.
He believes these customers will be happy to see “iPhone SE 2” with Touch ID and a single-lens rear camera.
Through the different reports, it indicates that the new “iPhone SE 2” will be featuring with the 4.7-inch display and a Touch ID home button like the iPhone 8.
Apple continues to sell the iPhone 8 from $449, while the iPhone SE was $349 prior to being discontinued. When new, the iPhone 8 and iPhone SE started at $699 and $399 respectively.
