The analyst said that despite the epidemic and the quarantine of Apple’s partners, the inexpensive iPhone, known as the iPhone SE 2 or iPhone 9, will hit the market in the first half of the year. Ming-Chi Kuo did not give specific dates, but it was previously reported that the announcement of the new smartphone will take place in mid-March, and it will go on sale at the end of the month.
According to rumors, the appearance of the iPhone SE 2 will be similar to the iPhone 8. It will inherit from the iPhone 8 and some characteristics, including a 4.7-inch Retina-display, a Home button with a built-in fingerprint scanner Touch ID and a 12-megapixel main camera with six-lens. And the heart of the new iPhone will be the Apple A13 Bionic chip installed in the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max.
