The iPhone SE 2 is coming very soon and we’re going to be sharing the details in this article. So, we’re getting plenty of leaks and renders surrounding the upcoming iPhone 12. Little do most people know, we have the release of the iPhone SE 2 just around the corner!
There are mixed opinions: some refer to the device as the iPhone 9. While some argue that the name is as stated in the headline: the iPhone SE 2 or maybe even the iPhone SE Pro. Whatever it is gonna be called, is not the main point. The bottom line is that it’s gonna be coming very soon.
People were speculating that the iPhone SE 2 could be launched in Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference in 2020 however, that did not happen. But, we have new news of the iPhone SE 2 being launched in an event on the 31st of March.
There were previous reports of an early launch and this does make sense as Apple is then able to get plenty of sales from the A13 powered iPhone SE 2 before they launch their flagship in September. Interestingly enough, the original iPhone SE was also launched on the 31st of March way back in 2016.
iPhone SE 2: A blessing in disguise
Many people are disappointed at the SE 2’s resemblance to the iPhone 8. Some even describe it as a cop-out in terms of a release. Well, this is essentially the case and, we think the iPhone SE 2 is a benefit to both Apple and its consumers.
The iPhone SE 2 will cut costs by adopting a similar design to a previous model. An added advantage is that it’s also going to be containing the A13 Bionic chipset. So, this allows Apple to deliver a true budget alternative to its high-end Apple phones without compromising on the performance.
We’ve already had plenty of leaks surrounding the device including the design specification and pricing. So, today we’re going to be covering it all. We need to remember that while it doesn’t look like the latest iPhones, the iPhone SE 2 is incredibly cheap. It is in fact a good choice for those that want a less expensive phone. Thanks to the leaks, we already have full 360 renders of the iPhone SE 2 and these were based on CAD data for the iPhone SE 2.
The iPhone SE 2 is going to measure in at 138.5 x 67.4 x 7.8 millimeters. If we include the camera bump on the rear, the thickness is 8.6. Moreover, it has thick bezels both above and below the display and, of course, looks very similar to the iPhone 8. We get a 4.7-inch Liquid Retina display with an aspect ratio of 16 x 9. We do need to remember, however, that liquid retina is simply just an Apple marketing term.
It does not have any actual meaning so, it’s essentially just a 4.7 inch LCD display. We’ve got a dedicated home button on the front and this will of course feature the touch ID sensor. But, it’s thought that it’s not going to feature the 3D face unlock.
On the right-hand side, we’ve got the power button with the alert slider on the left. There is also a lightning charging port at the bottom. On the rear, we’ve got a frosted glass panel that does differentiate itself a little bit from the iPhone 8. There is a single camera in the top left corner accompanied by an LED flash.
Processor, Storage and Battery
The iPhone SE 2 is going to be coming with the Apple A13 Bionic chipset which is the same chipset found in the latest Apple devices. Moreover, it will also be equipped with 3 GB RAM and a choice of 64 or 128 GB storage and, it will of course be running iOS 13. It’s reportedly coming with the 2050 mah battery and it will include all the usual features such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS.
Now many complain that the battery capacity is small. However, we need to remember that it’s a small phone. It’s marginally bigger than the iPhone 8 and of course, it contains the A13 chipset which means that it is actually going to be more efficient than previous models.
iPhone SE 2: Price
Ming Chico has estimated that the launch price of the iPhone SE 2 is going to be $400 and many other sources are agreeing. While some think that people are going to slate the iPhone SE 2 for its outdated design and camera functionality.
However, that’s not really what the phone’s about especially in 2020. Given that, iPhone prices being so high releasing a budget phone like SE 2 allows more people to purchase iPhones. It does have the latest chipset meaning that it is going to work with the latest software versions and run all of the latest apps without any issues.
Moreover, in using the body of a previous iPhone they’ve saved a huge amount of money with production as well as their research and development. This means that they can bring a phone to the consumer at a much cheaper cost. From Apple’s point of view, the more people that have iPhones the more money they can make in services. Judging by the success of the budget-friendly iPhone XR, in the past, we can expect this phone to perform just as well.
iPhone SE 2 or iPhone 9?
When it comes to naming the phone, it seems like a very bad idea to be calling it the iPhone 9 but, many still believe this is going to be the case. We personally don’t see this happening. Plus, Apple is so good at marketing, it’s gonna be interesting to see what they actually do.
Sources suggest the name is most probably going to be the iPhone SE 2. However, there is a chance it could also be the iPhone SE Pro. There are also rumors of the iPhone SE 2 plus or maybe an iPhone SE Pro Plus but leaks are pretty few and far between.
Right now, all we have is rumors of a 5.5-inch display. If the iPhone 8 release is anything to go by then it means that the iPhone SE 2 Plus is gonna have dual cameras. It might also have a much larger battery capacity probably closer to 3,000 mah. As stated earlier, the iPhone SE 2 is expected to launch by the end of this month. Moreover, we already had reports that the assembly of the devices had begun.
That is all from us. Stay tuned for further updates.
