A leak on the Apple website confirms that the long-rumored low-cost iPhone is coming soon – and it will be called iPhone SE.
While a new iPhone doesn’t quite trigger the same excitement as it used to, the launch of a low-cost model is, however, always a bit of an event. The new iPhone SE (iPhone SE 2, or whatever else you want to call it) has been a subject to rumor for several years – and it hasn’t even been confirmed by Apple. But now, it seems the 2020 iPhone SE is on its way, with a launch date any day now.
9to5Mac reports that the launch of the new iPhone SE could be imminent, as Apple has started adding accessories for the new low-cost iPhone to its official online store. A third-party Belkin screen protector, currently on sale on Apple’s website, is listed as compatible with a mysterious 4.7-inch iPhone SE — in addition to the iPhone 7 and iPhone 8.
You will know that the much-loved original iPhone SE is a 4-inch phone, therefore there’s no confusion here.
The official listing, more importantly, confirms that the upcoming low-cost iPhone will be simply called “iPhone SE” and not the iPhone 9 — putting an end to the debate that has been going on for quite some time.
The leak falls in line with previous reports from 9to5Mac that claimed pre-orders for the 2020 iPhone SE could have kicked-off as early as today, Friday, April 3rd. The base model will have 64GB of storage, alongside 128GB and 256GB variants, and should be available in three colors: white, black and Product Red.
The new iPhone SE’s starting price is thought to be around $399.
The device is expected to run on the same chipset that powers the iPhone 11 series but packaged inside an iPhone 8 body. That means Touch ID (instead of Face ID) and a smaller 4.7 inch screen.
