An obvious leak on the Apple Retailer means that a new telephone carrying the iPhone SE title is coming quickly. A product title for a Belkin screen protector in Apple’s on-line retailer listed the supported units as iPhone 7, 8, and SE. This appears to the point that a brand new SE can be the identical measurement as an iPhone 7 or 8, making the brand new SE greater than its 4-inch predecessor from 2016. The product web page has since been up to date to take away the iPhone SE title; it simply says 7 and 8 now.
This leak corroborates a vaguely sourced rumor from 9to5Mac printed solely a short while earlier, which cited a “tip from an extremely trusted reader” that Apple is days away from asserting a brand new low-price iPhone and that the telephone can be known as the iPhone SE, not the iPhone 9 or iPhone SE 2. Like so many different Apple merchandise, it will be distinguished from its predecessors by its 12 months of launch (2020).
That report additionally claims that the phone will probably be out there in white, black, and Product Red colors and that it’ll are available 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB configurations. Customers who don’t obtain many video games or wealthy media information would most likely be served simply superb by the 128GB configuration, although 64GB is on the small aspect for many.
The primary iPhone SE was launched in 2016, shortly after the launch of the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus. Whereas these two telephones had 4.7- and 5.5-inch screens, respectively, the iPhone SE stored the 4-inch dimension from the iPhone 5 a few generations prior.
In different phrases, shoppers who preferred the iPhone SE as a result of they felt the iPhone 6S was too large will probably be disenchanted; however they’ll nonetheless most likely get a contemporary Apple processor in a telephone that’s markedly smaller than the present flagships.
