Details of Apple’s Affordable New iPhone Emerge

Posted on October 4, 2019 by Mehedi Hassan in Apple with 20 Comments

Apple’s been rumored to bring back its iPhone SE handset this year. And a new report has shed some more details on what Apple is planning for its next affordable iPhone.

According to Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo (via 9to5Mac), Apple is planning to introduce an iPhone 8-looking device with the next iPhone SE. The new device, possibly called iPhone SE 2, is expected in the first quarter of 2020, with a 4.7-inch LCD display.

Design-wise, the iPhone SE 2 will feature Apple’s design on the iPhone 8. But on the inside, it will include almost the same power as the iPhone 11, thanks to an A13 processor and 3GB of RAM. Apple will likely cut down on other features like battery and display to save costs, however.

The device will obviously not include some of the more modern features of the iPhone 11 like Face ID. It will still include Touch ID, though. And that might be a perfect device for those who have been using an iPhone 6 for a while and need a new upgrade but aren’t too willing to empty their wallet on an iPhone 11.
