Analysts agree that Apple will launch a new budget iPhone this year based on the design of the iPhone 8. And based on the new technology of the iPhone 11 series. The smartphone, which probably goes by the name of iPhone SE (2020), will be launching in the market soon. You can find out what hardware and specifications the iPhone SE 2020 should bring here.
iPhone SE 2020: hardware and specifications
Bionic A13 Chip
Although the new iPhone SE 2020 will be priced significantly below the flagship models, Apple should not be fooled by the features. The fast Bionic A13 processor will be working inside the device. And is considered the best that Apple has ever built.
Memory and Charging
The SE 2020 should also continue to rely on 3 gigabytes of RAM, with 64 GB and 128 GB internal storage. As always, the price should increase as storage space grows. Somewhat surprisingly, the iPhone SE 2020 should also come with the Qi charging standard, meaning that it can be charge wirelessly.
9to5Mac has found references to another cheap iPhone in the iOS 14 code. Accordingly, Apple should also work on a larger plus variant of the iPhone SE 2020. If you consider that the new variant should continue the iPhone 8 series, that also makes sense. Finally, the 8th generation is also available in two different sizes.
The iPhone SE 2020 has a 4.7-inch LCD display; the Plus variant will probably be based on the size of the iPhone 8 Plus. For comparison: the iPhone 11 has a 6.1-inch display. The 1,334 x 750 pixels resulting in a pixel density of 326 PPI for the diagonal display. In addition, Apple will probably ship the iPhone SE 2020 again without a 3D touch and switch back to the haptic control – presumably to keep the price as low as possible.
After we said goodbye to the Home Button with the iPhone 10 series from 2018, Apple should bring the home button and Touch ID back again. Here too, the cost factor should play a role by saving the more expensive technology behind Face ID.
