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.


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.

Thick bezels..... and a home button....in 2020....wtf

I don’t care what anyone says, I love the home button. I have used phones both with it with and without it, and I just find it so much easier to have it.

I’ll also take bezels over a notch, any day.

Wonder what they will call it. Shame it won't be smaller than the iPhone 8.

The X and 8 were almost the same size.

A 4.7” screen on the 8 with no bezels would be awesome.
otherwise, why not keep the se shape and have a truely pocketable phone in the line up.
