In two separate reports today from DigiTimes, iPhone SE 2 (aka iPhone 9) has reached verification at Foxconn and Pegatron plants, but that Apple has deferred PCB orders for the device from the Q1 to the Q2 due to the coronavirus outbreak, suggesting a possible launch delay.
“Taiwan-based flexible PCB makers in the supply chain of Apple devices will see their shipments for the upcoming entry-level iPhone SE2 deferred from the first quarter to the second, and their second-quarter revenues may buck seasonal trends because of the deferral, according to industry sources.”
According to previous rumors, the low-cost iPhone launch will take place as early as this month, on March 31. However, the new iPhone SE 2/iPhone 9 could see some delays due to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak, according to multiple sources.
The rumored iPhone SE 2/iPhone 9 is expected to look like iPhone 8. It will come with a 4.8-inch LCD display, Apple’s A13 chipset, 3GB of RAM, Touch ID, and a Home button.
The new iPhone SE, or iPhone 9, is expected to cost around $399.
