New iPhone SE 2: Everything We Know So Far

New iPhone SE 2
Written by Hassan Abbas

In recent weeks, rumors about a new iPhone SE 2 have increased. As part of our weekly Rumorsphere section, today we are going to focus on this device. One that many users are waiting for with open arms. Let’s go there.

Where does the iPhone SE come from

The iPhone SE recovered a format much loved by users with the return to four inches and the external design premiered by the iPhone 5 in 2012. Apple saw that there was still demand for this type of capable and compact phone, so in March 2016 announced a special edition, the iPhone “Special Edition”

The iPhone SE brought the best of the iPhone 6s to a body of iPhone 5s, all for a price of scandal.

This model inherited three key features of the iPhone 6s: its camera, the A9 processor (very powerful at the time) and 2GB of RAM. The other components came from the iPhone 5s: Touch ID, screen, dual flash. Both the processor and the camera put this terminal at the height of the latest Apple iPhone. And the extra RAM guaranteed a lasting longevity.

But what ended up placing the iPhone SE on a pedestal was its price of 499 euros, which some time later dropped to 419 euros doubling its storage. This was the cheapest iPhone with the best specifications in Apple’s history.

What we expect from the new iPhone SE 2

We’ve been waiting for the arrival of the iPhone SE 2 or whatever it ends up calling itself the new four-inch iPhone. Among all the features that are shuffled, there are four that stand out especially:

  1. The Bionic A11 processor that carries the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X. This would place it at its own height to play augmented reality content and take advantage of the new HEVC and HEIF formats of video and photo that take up half the space.
  2. The camera of the iPhone 8, as happened with the iPhone 6s and the iPhone SE. The processor would give him the necessary power to squeeze it to the maximum.
  3. The wireless charging, which also comes standard on the latest models of iPhone.
  4. Finally, doubts arise about the permanence of the audio jack. Apple eliminated it to gain site in the iPhone 7 and improve the resistance to splashes, dust, etc. at the same time that it introduced a haptic Home button. All that requires a site that the jack occupies.

The biggest unknown of all that revolves around the iPhone SE 2 is the audio jack: what will happen with this connector?

That is, we would be facing a four-inch model with the best components and latest generation functions. It would be necessary to know the price, but to expect one similar to the iPhone SE would not be unreasonable: 399 dollars (without VAT) or 499 euros (with VAT) for the base model of 32GB.

A redesign of the screen without frames keeping the dimensions of the iPhone SE would increase the price of the terminal and bring it closer to the latest iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X. Therefore, it is discarded.

New iPhone SE 2: What Are the Rumors

The existence of a new iPhone SE 2 is based on two great rumors. The first is the video and photos that we saw last Thursday in which it shows a four-inch iPhone, white and with what appears to be a glass back. This material would be necessary to allow wireless charging, as it happens with the next generation iPhone.

In these images, you can see an iPhone with a different back cover than the one he has worn all these years. Externally no other change is appreciated, but the presence of the 3.5mm audio connector is striking.

The second great rumor is perhaps the most resounding of all. The Eurasian Economic Commission published a regulatory document in which up to 11 models of new iOS devices are mentioned. These are: A1920, A1921, A1984, A2097, A2098, A2099, A2101, A2103, A2104, A2105 and A2106. The original iPhone SE had three different numbers (A1662, A1723, and A1724), so it is very likely that the new iPhone SE 2 is among the devices mentioned by the EEC.

As for the release date, we must bear in mind that the EEC has never failed before. He hit the iPhone 7 in 2016, the iPad Pro in 2017 and the new iPad in 2018 with an advance of a few days to a few weeks. Therefore, Apple could launch new iOS devices at any time between today and the WWDC.

Hopefully, the iPhone SE 2 is a product that ends up seeing the light of day. Surely many iPhone users are waiting for it.
