The iPhone SE 2 rumor got off the ground yesterday thanks to a Barclays analyst who announced his return in 2020. After several leaks at the start of the year, the second iPhone SE of the name had disappeared from radar for some time, disappointing a good part of the apple customers.
Indeed, the small iPhone is no longer sold by Apple but still retains a good rating with an audience of fans of compact formats … and reasonable prices. So we decided to realize an iPhone SE 2 concept based on the most credible different leaks, as well as on our intuition.
An easy-to-produce iPhone SE 2 concept
If we remember the iPhone SE of first generation, Apple had taken its technical base of iPhone 6S to include it in the chassis of an iPhone 5S. This time, several sources mention an iPhone 8 base. To release a small model of iPhone competitive at all levels, the apple must necessarily reuse a maximum of components, while offering some new features.
Logically, it would be necessary to keep the chassis of the iPhone SE (which was taken from the 5S, itself taken from the 5) since it allows an excellent grip and is still current thanks to the iPad Pro 2018 The tablet having brought this "carr" style up to date. No headache on the design, enough to focus on the rest. Simply the space gray color would darken slightly, just like the apple on the back of the device.
We then imagined that the main novelty of this iPhone SE 2 would be the pair Face ID / Touch ID. The 4.5-inch LCD screen is here derived from that of the iPhone XR, already less expensive than the OLED panel of the X / XS. It is slightly larger than that of the previous range, thanks to the notch. To get closer to what the competition does, we have kept the Touch ID, in addition to facial recognition. It would still be linked to the Home button, again, to limit costs.
Then, it is the photo part which would constitute the second major evolution with the reuse of the dual sensor of the iPhone 8 Plus. 2x optical zoom and 12 megapixel main sensor, all helped by a rounded flash. Here is what to make pretty pictures.
Finally, the latest news hardwares are located under the hood with the famous A12 chip that we saw on the iPhone 2018. We have not taken the A11 chip from the iPhone 8 because the next generation is only an evolution of the latter, and that would allow Apple to have a more homogeneous range, capable of running all the games in its Apple Arcade service.
Needless to say, the operating system will undoubtedly be iOS 13.
Price and date of an iPhone SE 2 from 2020
With an interesting technical sheet but already widely proven by the manufacturer, and a timeless design but also amortized for a long time, Apple could offer an iPhone SE 2 499 in 64 GB version, and 549 in 128 GB version. It would be a decent price in Europe, while in the United States, the price would be $ 399 before taxes.
