The news that the iPhone SE 2 is coming in the first quarter is not a surprise, as Ming-Chi Kuo previously said as much in a report earlier this week. Nikkei also reported that an A13 iPhone SE 2 is coming early next year, with an iPhone 8-esque chassis design.
Apple may be working on a smaller and cheaper version of the iPhone 11 for 2020. TF International Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who has a strong track record of accurate Apple predictions, expects the company to launch the so-called iPhone SE2 early next year. It'd bring the A13 chip and 3GB of LPDDR4X memory to an iPhone 8 form factor.
According to the latest information, Apple will use an event held in early 2020 to show the iPhone SE 2. Over the last few years Apple has showed new products in March, and it was during the 2016 March event the original iPhone SE was revealed. Apple has never had a particular product focus for its March gatherings, unlike its late-year events that center around the iPhone.
He also said that Career Technologies and Murata Manufacturing will begin supplying Apple with antenna components by early 2020 by which time the production of the device will begin to meet its estimated launch time of Q1 2020 end.
By Sneha Saha: Apple is working on the successor to the iPhone SE for a long time now. This is what the rumours suggest. Rumours and leaks suggest that the iPhone SE successor will be called the iPhone SE 2. Until now it was said that the iPhone SE 2 will go official early next year. A new report now reveals the expected launch timeline of the iPhone SE 2. According to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo the iPhone SE 2 will launch in March, 2020. The launch date is yet to be revealed. In fact, Apple still hasn't confirmed the coming of iPhone SE 2.
In the new report, Kuo reveals some timelines for the iPhone SE 2. Kuo reveals that the iPhone SE 2 will enter mass production in January 202 and will launch two months later, in March, 2020. Considering Kuo holds a good track record of revealing details about upcoming Apple products we can trust this bit of information. To recollect, the predecessor iPhone SE was launched in March 2016 and as Apple maintains its one launch timeline for its product lineups it is highly likely that what Kuo's prediction is accurate. Notably, Apple is yet to confirm the iPhone SE 2 and its launch date.
As per Kuo, Apple will launch a budget-focussed iPhone SE 2 in the first quarter of 2020 and this smartphone will feature a newer A13 processor powering it. 9To5Mac reports that Kuo's also mentioned that this upcoming iPhone will pack 3GB of RAM instead of 4GB found on Apple's current crop of iPhones. 1e1e36bf2d
