iPhone SE 2 release will follow the launch of iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and Pro Max closely, according to online sources. In fact, the leaks also contain the expected price for the upcoming device and more details, as the elusive Smartphone’s specifications leak is being echoed throughout the web. Whether or not the rumors are to be trusted, the 2020 release date seems to be genuine at the very least.
iPhone SE 2 leaks indicate that the device will likely come in 2020, which still means we have 14 more possible months of waiting. The reason for such enthusiasm shown by the interested parties might be the fact that it was announced officially as a budget alternative to flagship iPhones, even more so than the beloved iPhone XR for instance. Also, the success and positive reputation the first iPhone SE series still enjoys must have something to do with it. That first device of the series has shocked everyone with its compatible size and down-to-earth style, but it quickly reaped overly positive feedback from users and critics alike.
Further rumors place the launch for iPhone SE 2 in Q1 of 2020, or at least its unveiling. Experts are saying that it would be a logical choice for Apple to go for the unveiling in the first half of 2020, with the launch not far behind. The release of the iPhone 11 and its siblings was this past September, so anything within a one year period would be considered normal and expected. As far as the price goes, the leaks carry a floating figure of $450 or so.
Original iPhone SE was $399 at launch, for the 16GB model. The upcoming SE 2 would definitely cost at least as much or a little higher, as the standards have grown with increased momentum. But, even at $450, this would be a serious undercut for Apple’s current high-end Smartphones, and most other flagships for that matter. Some brands even announced upcoming 5G flagships for 2020 to go over $1k, so there’s that…
In terms of specifications, iPhone SE 2 design has three theories going around, all equally possible or impossible. The most probable of them all, according to most online sources, is that it will look like iPhone 8, have a 4.7-inch display screen, and some unofficial photos put the notch at the top of the display. It is also rumored that it will have dual cameras for the rear set, but in all honesty, time will tell which ones of these rumors are true.
