WEB DESK: 2020 is set to be a landmark year for Apple. Jaws have already hit the floor on the back of reports the company will release up to six new iPhones with the iPhone 12 set for some particularly notable upgrades. And now yet another new iPhone has been revealed.
Digitimes (via MacRumors) says that Apple’s plan to introduce an all-new budget iPhone (dubbed the ‘iPhone SE2’) in early 2020 is only half the picture.
“The latest news coming from the supply chain is that Apple is likely to add yet another LCD-based model to its iPhone lineup for 2020m” DigiTimes explains. “This new member will be an upgraded version of the widely speculated iPhone SE2 featuring a [larger] 5.5- or 6.1-inch LCD display and available at the end of 2020 or in earlier 2021, said the sources.”
A lot of this makes sense. Acclaimed industry insider Ming-Chi Kuo has touted a circa 5.4-inch iPhone for several months. This ‘iPhone SE3’ appears to be based on the iPhone 11 while ‘iPhone SE2’ is based on the older 4.7-inch iPhone 8 and sports a Touch ID home button alongside 3GB RAM and (remarkably) the same A13 chip inside the iPhone 11 range.
