Next March 31 is the estimated date for the announcement of the new iPhone 9 or iPhone SE2, an Apple phone designed to cost less than regular models. However, the date is not exact since as a result of Covid-19 the company has been forced to suspend some activities.
The last mid-range specimen the company released was the iPhone SE in 2016 for $ 399 and was a hit at the time.
Now there is talk of the iPhone SE 2 a smartphone comparable in size with the 4.7-inch iPhone 8 that will feature most of the components of the current line of iPhones and you will use a cheaper LCD screen – liquid crystal – to maintain a comfortable price.
Rumors warn that the device could have a single 12 megapixel rear camera and may have the newest chipset of Apple, the A13 processor, which is the same as found in the iPhone 11 series and the smartphone is expected to come with 3GB of RAM.
The new mid-range version of Apple will come with Touch ID – fingerprint recognition system – on the start button, in addition to adding facial scanning.
Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said that the estimated cost of the device is $ 399, the same as its predecessor. Also, the phone is expected to come in three colors: space gray, red, and silver.
It is speculated that Apple announces its new member in order to retain current customers who want to renew their iPhone but they don’t want to make a very high investment and at the same time attract new customers or win back those who took away your competitors who offer high-end smartphones at more affordable prices.
The brother of the iPhone SE 2 could be in the works: the iPhone SE 2 Plus
There is already a more expensive brother that is supposed to be launched in 2021, but it will continue to be positioned as a lower-cost phone compared to Apple’s other lines.
Rumors point to iPhone SE 2 Plus as the name of the next mid-range phone And it will feature a 5.5-inch or 6.1-inch LCD screen. It will also apparently have an updated form of Touch ID that would be integrated into the power button.
