A report we have been following from a long time is regarding Apple and its plans to launch a new affordable iPhone this year. We have seen varying reports in the last few weeks but one thing is for certain that a new affordable iPhone is coming. It is also confirmed that it will start at a $400 price point which makes it the lowest-priced iPhone till date. Also, we know that the design of this iPhone will be similar to the iPhone 8 since it might be a recycled version of the same. However, the specifications of this phone will be according to the iPhone 11 series.
But you might have noticed that we haven’t mentioned what this new iPhone will be called. Well, frankly speaking, no one is sure at the moment of what this iPhone will be called as many say it might be called the iPhone SE 2 while some reports say it will the iPhone 9. However, a new exclusive report from 9to5Mac claims that the new iPhone will be called the 2020 iPhone SE. Now, this should end all the doubts regarding what the affordable new iPhone will be called.
We have previously mentioned that these devices are expected to launch later this month. April 15 is said to be the tentative launch date of iPhone SE but we could see it announced sooner as well. On the other hand, 9to5Mac’s report also claims that the iPhone SE 2020 will have a storage of 64GB in its base variant which will go up to 256GB for the highest-end variant. It will be available in Product Red, White and Black colour options as per the report.
9to5Mac is also confident that Apple will use an A13 chip inside these iPhones which means it will be powerful enough despite the older design. Also, features such as Apple Arcade and AR will be available for the users owning the 2020 iPhone SE.
On the topic of when this 2020 iPhone SE could launch, 9to5Mac says that Apple could launch the device “as soon as tomorrow” and start taking orders for the same. This obviously contradicts the report from FPT’s Jon Prosser who claims 15th April to be the date of the announcement. If the report turns out to be true, we will see the iPhone SE 2020 being launched on April 5. The report also falls in line with the leaked case for iPhone SE from earlier this week since Best Buy was told to start merchandising those cases from April 5 as well.
