It’s weird how the iPhone SE2 was rumored for such a long time but still hasn’t hit production yet. The successor of the original iPhone SE (that was introduced in 2016) has been rumored to be undergoing development even though Apple didn’t mention it in any of its statements or interviews.
However, as the end of 2019 was getting nearer, rumors were getting stronger, thus indicating that Apple has already placed various orders for parts and that the smartphone will be revealed in the first quarter of the current year.
Case maker Totallee revealed that they are working for a thin case, especially for the iPhone SE2. Sources from Totallee believe that the phone will be released in March 2020.
Apple’s fanbase made so much fuss about the successor of the iPhone SE that it almost feels like it is confirmed and ready to hit the shelves. Apple didn’t deny any of the claims that were made about the phone – Some said that it would be named “iPhone 9,” meaning that it will follow the same design and form factor of the iPhone 8.
Ming-Chi Kuo, one of the most trustworthy persons in the field, gave credence to those rumors.
Kuo said that the display of the new device would be 4.7 inches, just like the one of the iPhone 8, and it will share the same A13 Bionic chipset as in the iPhone 11.
Some leaked drawings even explained how the upcoming smartphone would have the LCP antenna embedded.
