Before Apple officially announced its latest batch of iPhones, the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro, last month, there were rumblings that Tim Cook would reveal a new-and-improved version of the pocketable iPhone SE — released in 2016 and discontinued last year.
Unfortunately for users who loved the SE’s 4-inch display, Cook said nothing about the phone’s second coming. But that hasn’t stopped the rumor mill. Here’s everything we think we know about the iPhone SE 2.
It Could Come Out as Soon as Early 2020
Fresh rumors out of MacRumors predict that Apple is expected to release the iPhone SE 2 in Q1 of 2020. In the past, this has meant the company’s annual March event. Pricing could be as low as $399.
It May Look Nothing Like the Original SE
According to 9to5Mac, the iPhone SE “2” might draw more inspiration from the design of the iPhone 8 than the SE. For those counting inches, the iPhone 8 had a 4.7-inch display not the aforementioned 4 inches. That’s still much slimmer than the smallest new phone Apple sells, iPhone 11 Pro (5.8 inches).
Any New Phone Will Have Apple’s Latest Tech
If we see a new SE in 2020, there’s a good chance it would have a Touch ID home button. It’d also adopt many new-age specs like the latest A13 Bionic processor and maybe even 3GB RAM. It’s common practice for Apple to upgrade old products with new hardware. For example, the company recently took its four-year-old iPad mini and swapped out all the guts for the latest tech.
Want to Buy the Original iPhone SE? You Still Can
Even though the original SE was discontinued in 2018, you can still buy one on Apple’s website. Both 32GB and 128GB models are available in a number of colors (gold, rose gold, silver and space gray), starting at $329. eBay also has them for as little as $75 right now.
