iPhone SE 2 (9): all we know about the new Apple smartphone
11.03.2020 0 Comments
Apple smartphones are always of great interest to consumers, and even more so when it comes to a relatively inexpensive model of the company. In this article, we have gathered information about the announcement of the iPhone SE 2 (iPhone 9), which is expected this spring.
iPhone SE 2 or iPhone 9?
Initially, when there were rumors of a new “budget iPhone”, there were a lot of rumors that the new product would be called SE 2. Nevertheless, the Japanese blog Mac Otakara with reference to “informed sources” indicates that the company plans to name the new iPhone 9. With the release of the iPhone X, she skipped this serial number, and since the new model will be quite similar to the iPhone 8, this step makes sense. However, other sources do not discard the more familiar name iPhone SE 2.
It is estimated that the new Apple smartphone will have a 4.7-inch IPS display. For the sake of cheaper devices, the company decided to abandon the more expensive OLED matrix in this model. The device itself will be noticeably larger than the original SE, but almost 1.5 inches smaller than modern flagships.
Also expected to use a fingerprint scanner Touch ID and the lack of Face ID: again, all this is done to reduce the final cost of the device. And judging by most rumors, we are expecting a smartphone with one camera module, as in the original iPhone 8.
It is also expected that the iPhone SE 2 (9) will receive an A13 Bionic processor, 3 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal memory. Some sources suggest that there may be 32 GB on board the basic version of the device, however, Apple no longer uses such a small amount of memory in smartphones, and it is unlikely for them to purchase such modules for a newer model.
In general, judging by the information of Tomsguide, Cnet and TechRadar, we are waiting for a smartphone based on the iPhone 8, but with more modern components.
The iPhone 9 renderers published by @OnLeaks on iGeeksBlog suggest that the new smartphone is almost the twin of the iPhone 8, with minimal differences in appearance.
And finally comes your very first look at # Apple's highly anticipated # iPhoneSE2 aka # iPhone9!

Future iPhone 9 Design by @OnLeaks
Another source only confirms the possible future appearance of the device. Here we again see the display with frames and Touch ID.
But what the future iPhone SE 2 will actually look like, we will find out only during its presentation. If we take into account the increased number of possible "sinks", then there is very little time left to wait.
When to expect the iPhone 9 (SE 2)?
If you believe the sources of Tomsguide and Techradar, then we will see a new phone at the end of this or in the first half of next month. At least Tim Cook says Apple is not afraid of the coronavirus, and is once again deploying its manufacturing facilities in China.
However, taking into account the fact that the number of sick people is only growing all over the world, due to which many of the largest exhibitions have been canceled, it is likely that the release date will shift to April-May.
How much will it cost?
Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo (Ming-Chi Kuo) predicts that the future device will cost $ 399. If this turns out to be true, the new iPhone will be $ 50 cheaper than the iPhone 8 and as much as $ 300 cheaper than the iPhone 11 as standard.
