Will iPhone SE2 be Exactly Like iPhone 8?



Will iPhone SE2 be Exactly Like iPhone 8

A long time ago, there is talk of a possible iPhone SE2 leaks, a renewal of that small iPhone that Apple presented there by March 2016. Ming-Chi Kuo, the well-known analyst (and photo filter), advanced months ago that in 2020, a new iPhone SE will arrive with a very similar design to the iPhone 8. Recently, the latest leaks about SE 2 has been published by OnLeaks, one of the most reputed leakers.

OnLeaks has published on his Twitter profile the first image of the iPhone SE2, “aka iPhone 9“, as he acknowledged in the publication. As Kuo anticipated, it is a smaller device than current models, with generous frames both above and below and a detail that had disappeared from the iPhone since the arrival of the iPhone X: TouchID.

4.7 inches and a single camera behind

OnLeaks points out that the iPhone SE2 / iPhone 9 will have dimensions of 138.5 mm high, 67.4 mm wide, and 7.8 mm thick including the bulge of the camera (in the singular). To put it in context, the iPhone 8 measured 138.4 mm high, 67.3 mm wide and was 7.3 mm thick, so the measurements are quite similar, millimeter above, millimeter below. The weight of this futuristic model is not known, although it could be found around the 148 grams that the iPhone 8 weighed.

Also, it has the same screen size as the iPhone 8, which is 4.7 inches. iGeeksBlog, the publisher that has shared the images, says the back is made of frosted glass, the same material as the iPhone 11 Pro. This condition could indicate the presence of wireless charging. It also highlights the presence of TouchID, the fingerprint sensor of the iPhone, which had been completely replaced by FaceID in the cell phones of the Apple company.

For the rest, without news in design. That simple Apple aesthetic is preserved, with the apple in the back area and the camera placed in the upper left corner. In terms of specifications, Kuo said that the device would have 3 GB of RAM and the A13 Bionic processor, which is the last generation iPhone. He also noted that in 2021 we would have a larger iPhone SE2 Plus, with a 5.5 or 6.1-inch screen.

As for the price, Kuo put the figure at 399 USD. Although we do not know for which version since Apple usually launches some variants with different internal storage capacities. If we compare it with the original iPhone SE, the 16 GB model started at 599 USD and the 64 GB model at 699 USD.

At the moment, nothing is official. So, it will be time to wait until Apple shows it to the public. According to Kuo, the launch should happen anywhere in the first half of 2020. It is expected that this launch coincides with the new iPad Pro with a triple camera, filtered by OnLeaks a few days ago, whose presentation aims to be in spring.
