Apple is planning to release a low-priced iPhone SE2 in the Q1 2019, according to noted analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.
According to MacRumors, In a research note with TF International Securities, Kuo said the device will feature a similar form factor design and specs as the iPhone 8, but with a faster A13 chip and 3GB RAM:
“We forecast that Apple will launch the more affordable iPhone SE2 in 1Q20. For the most part, the form factor design and hardware spec are similar to iPhone 8’s. The most significant hardware spec upgrade will be the adoption of the A13 processor and 3GB LPDDR4X. iPhone SE2 will likely increase iPhone’s market share and benefit Apple’s promotions for service and content. We expect that the iPhone SE2 shipment will reach 30–40mn units in 2020.”
Kua also believes these customers have a low desire for new features like Face ID and multiple cameras, suggesting the iPhone SE 2 will stick with Touch ID and a single rear camera.
According to previous reports, the device will come with a 4.7-inch display and a Touch ID. Apple started selling the iPhone SE for $399.
