The iPhone SE is one of the best-selling smartphones from Apple. And 2020 would be the year when Apple will update the SE series. However, many believe that the XR was the perfect replacement for the SE. But, it looks like the phone maker doesn’t want you to lose hope over SE 2. In recent times, a lot of news and rumors are flooding on the internet about the device. And it is said to launch in March 2020.
Slash leaks have posted some hands-on images of the device which appeared on the Chinese social networking site. However, it’s not clear how trustworthy they are, but it looks super real. The image allegedly showing the chassis of the phone in two colors- gold and rose gold. We can clearly see the iconic alert slider and a glass back.
iPhone SE 2 Specifications
The SE 2 could have a slightly larger 4.7-inch screen rather than the 4-inch display found in SE. The Home button is said to remain in the same position, so don’t expect the notch. However, other reports claim that SE 2 would have an edge-to-edge display.
Talking about the processor there is a lot of confusion. A report from Tekz24 in August 2017 believes that the device will feature A10 Fusion chip. But, according to Ming-chi Kuo, a TF International securities analyst believes that the iPhone SE2 will sport A13 Bionic chip. The same processor found in Apple’s latest iPhone 11 series. Kuo also believes that the upcoming SE will 3GB of RAM as the SE offers 2GB of RAM. And 64GB of internal storage.
In the optics department, the device is said to equip the same camera at the back i.e, Sony Exmor RS 12 MP with f/2.2 aperture which can record 4K videos. In the front, the phone could have a 5MP or 7MP Face Time camera with Retina Flash. Which would a big upgrade over SE’s 1.2MP Face Time selfie camera!
Well, to keep the lights up SE 2 is said to have a slightly, slightly higher battery than its predecessor from 1,640 mAh to 1,700mAh.
Apart from the specs, the SE 2 could have some new features as well. As the SE won’t be a flagship device we would suggest you don’t expect totally new features. The first is Face ID, this feature also becomes important here. Every single smartphone launching nowadays offers face unlock even the budget ones. And for security, it becomes very important in 2020 to must-have face unlock feature.
Second is wireless charging, the device could offer wireless charging thanks to the rumored glass back. However, the major question is will this phone support fast charging?
For now, we have limited information about the device. But, You’ll find multiple images on the internet claiming the iPhone SE 2. But we’ll suggest don’t believe those rumors unless you get a strong proof.
