iPhone SE 2 release date finally got announced after several months of leaks and speculations about when will the Apple’s elusive successor to their highly popular ‘small edition’ come out. And, now it’s official. It will arrive in March 2020 and will reportedly be every bit as convenient and genius as the first SE model, that came out in March 2016. It will be a full four years since that time and the eager users and interested parties are burning with anticipation to see what features it will bring.
Entering mass production in January already, the long-anticipated upcoming iPhone SE 2 will be powered by Apple A13 SoC, according to Ming-Chi Kuo, the ever Apple-watching analyst whose claims have almost always come true in the past. Kuo already claimed that Apple will bring their new iPad Pro, MacBook, and AR (augmented reality) set in the first six months of 2020, and now this reveal only adds to the stakes.
The upcoming device is expected to be similar to iPhone 8, in its design at least. When iPhone SE came out, is emulated the iPhone 6S, naturally with some redesigns and additions to make the device what it was, which is a combination of all the prestigious features most users need in an economy case, toned down to the essentials for the lower price, but still powerful to fulfill the needs of the clientele.
As with its predecessor, iPhone SE 2 will be an upgraded version of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s, but this time it is expected to keep up with the latest trends regarding chipset, camera setup, and other modern features Apple developed in the meantime. To that extent, Ming-Chi Kuo claims it will contain the A13 SoC processor, which is the heart of iPhone 11 for instance, and that it will come with 3GB LPDDR4X RAM, which makes a traditional proportion Apple tends to make.
Most importantly, the price is expected to star at as little as $400 bucks, more or less, which already lifts a huge weight. The original iPhone SE had that same price at launch so its not that big of a leap. Other speculations say that the upcoming SE 2 won’t have some fancy but ‘overkill’ features, like 3D Touch, Face ID, and stuff like that, but it will have a Touch ID fingerprint reader and will offer 64GB and 128GB storage variations. Reports further say it will come in three color variations, Red, Space Grey, and Silver, and that Apple starts their January mass production with a prediction of 30 to 40 million units for 2020 alone.
