Kuo: iPhone SE 2 Launching in Q1 2020 with A13 at $399 Price

Apple is planning on releasing an iPhone SE 2 in the first quarter of 2020 and starting at a $399 price point, according to the latest research report from reliable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

iPhone SE vs iPhone 8
Kuo goes into more detail about the expected specs of the so called "‌iPhone SE‌ 2" in the latest research note obtained by MacRumors. Specs for the new low-end iPhone are said to include:

  • A13 CPU (same as iPhone 11)
  • 3GB LPDDR4X
  • 64GB and 128GB options
  • Space Gray, Silver and Red colors
  • No 3D Touch

Kuo expects the new ‌iPhone SE‌ 2 will be a popular upgrade option for existing ‌iPhone‌ 6 and ‌iPhone‌ 6S owners.

Despite being referred to as a "‌iPhone SE‌ 2" by Kuo, the analyst expects the form factor of Apple's new budget ‌iPhone‌ to be similar to the ‌iPhone‌ 8.

Ugh.
If I wanted an iPhone 8 shaped phone I could go buy one right now

An iPhone 8 size/shape totally misses the point of the iPhone SE and why so many of us love it like no other.

The small form factor is the key

You had me until "iPhone 8 form factor".

What a waste. I'd buy an iPhone 8 if that's what I wanted.

If it ain't tiny, it ain't an SE. It should be Small Edition. I'd get one...if it were small.

Some consumers: We'd like a 4" sized phone, with latest processor, no protruding camera & edge to edge display.

Apple: K, we have some iPhone 8 chasis we could recycle.

Some consumers: But there is no SE signature on that size.

Apple: No worries, it will be the best iPhone SE2 ever created in an iPhone 8 body.

That’s going to be a monster for sales at that price point.

It’s great to have an entry level iPhone for low income people. Not everyone needs an iPhone 11 Pro.
