Apple launched the budget-friendly iPhone SE with iPhone 5s-like design in 2016, and according to new reports, the Cupertino-based telecom giant is gearing up to launch the second generation of the smartphone this year.
The reports claim that the iPhone SE 2 – which could also be potentially called “iPhone 9” – will get into mass production next month for a potential March release schedule. The device is expected to flaunt a closer resemblance to the iPhone 8 with a 4.7-inch screen – which is incredibly small and handy.
The iPhone SE 2 is also expected to feature Touch ID home button, a single rear camera, a larger battery and be powered by Apple’s A13 chip, which also powers the iPhone 11. Reports also claim Apple’s Face ID biometric authentication will not be included.
While there is no real information on the iPhone SE 2’s retail price, its predecessor hit the market for $399 back in 2016.
