Old name, new look: At the beginning of April 2020, rumors about the release of the new iPhone SE are overflowing. Apparently Apple wants to publish the cheap iPhone under the old name – with the addition “2020”. Sales could also start very soon.
According to the latest speculations, Apple will present the “iPhone SE (2020)” to the public on April 3, 2020, reports 9to5Mac. The most recent announcement was that Apple was targeting April 15 for the presentation. Accordingly, there are two possible days for the pre-order to start: Either you can order the new cheap iPhone today, on April 3; or the preorder phase begins at the beginning of next week, on April 6th. According to European time, the start should take place either at 2 p.m. or 6 p.m.
Three colors and three memory sizes
The iPhone SE (2020) is to be available in three colors: black, white and red. The official protective covers are to be available in five versions: silicone in black and white and leather in red, black and blue. As expected, the A13 chipset is supposed to be installed, which also drives the iPhone 11 and supports augmented reality features, for example. You should be able to choose between 64, 128 and 256 GB as storage options.
The iPhone SE (2020) will probably look like the iPhone 8. This is indicated by a leaked screenshot from the Apple Store: The protective film from the manufacturer Belkin with the name “InvisiGlass Ultra” is available there for “iPhone SE / 8/7” .
iPhone SE Plus later?
Another reference to the name “iPhone SE” comes from another source: Jon Prosser published a screenshot on his Twitter account. The lettering “Apple Care + for iPhone SE” can be seen on it. Accordingly, Apple also offers its protection program for the new, inexpensive iPhone, at least in the United States.
The iPhone SE could have the same design as the iPhone 8, but is said to offer a longer battery life. The reason for this is probably that Apple will deliver the device without a 3D touch. The feature introduced with the iPhone 6s enables a kind of “right mouse button” over stronger pressure – but was not so well received by the users.
According to rumors, you have to wait a little longer for the larger model, which was previously traded in the rumor mill as “iPhone 9 Plus”. According to Jon Prosser, Apple is not yet ready for production. So the new iPhone SE could still steal the show from the OnePlus 8.
