Recent iPhone models are quite successful, but many fans are looking forward to a successor to the highly-popular iPhone SE. The iPhone SE was a hit among many iPhone fans and remained one of the most celebrated devices released by the company. iPhone SE 2 would come out soon, but it would launch under a different name.
According to a new rumor, the company is working on a sequel to the device that will be sold under the name of the iPhone 9. A Japanese source released the information, and it appears to be legit since Apple does acquire some parts from the country.
Some may be surprised by the suggested name, but it is the right choice. It is known that Apple skipped a generation when it announced the iPhone X series. This makes the iPhone the missing link in the iPhone range. The name may be quite attractive to many customers.
iPhone SE 2 (iPhone 9) – Looks and performance
A large number of sources claim that the device will take several design elements from the iPhone 8. Some argue that the screen will have a size of 4.7-inch. Instead of the LCD panels encountered usually on more affordable models, Apple may decide to pick an OLED panel.
It is believed that the specs will be quite impressive as the A13 Bionic chipset will be used. The mighty processor is already present on the iPhone 11 range, and several tests and benchmarks have praised the performance of the devices. To offer excellent performance, the processor will be paired with 3GB of RAM.
The possible release date for iPhone SE 2
Many sources expect that the iPhone could be released during Q1 2020. The decision to release the device within this timeframe is based on the fact that those who prefer the flagship models will wait until September 2020 when the iPhone 12 range will be released.
The iPhone SE 2 price
It is expected that the base model of iPhone SE 2 (iPhone 9) will include 64Mb of internal storage space, and it will be priced at $399.
