Apple Likely To Launch Smaller, Cheaper iPhone SE 2 With A13 Bionic Chipset

It's the same chipset found in the iPhone 11

If you're an Apple fan but find the latest iPhone 11 series way beyond your budget, you're in luck. Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo revealed that Apple is looking into launching the iPhone SE 2 sometime in the first quarter of 2020. The SE 2 will have the A13 chip, the same chip found in the iPhone 11 which means you can expect a powerful iPhone but smaller and cheaper in price.

According to Kuo, the “iPhone SE 2, which will be the best upgrade choice for existing 100mn iPhone 6 series users, will be a key growth driver for Apple in 2020”. He added that the SE 2 will have a similar design to the iPhone 8, so you can expect it to have a 4.7 inch screen. The iPhone SE was sold in Malaysia back in 2016 and came in 16GB and 64GB with the following prices: MYR1949 and MYR2449, so it's likely for the price to remain around that range.

It's important to note that even with the A13 Bionic chipset, Apple will need to cut costs somewhere. Predictions so far include a less powerful camera to the iPhone 11 and that it will still have a home button, as the iPhone 8 design doesn’t support Face ID.

Of course, until Apple confirms it themselves, all this is likely to change in the future.
