Would-be model expected to resemble iPhone 8 with a Touch ID home button

Apple is reportedly planning to launch two 'iPhone SE 2' models in 2020, in different sizes. The upcoming models are expected to feature 5.5- and 6.1-inch LCD displays, Digitimes reported recently.

Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo had also suggested there could be another iPhone SE 2 model on the way, dubbed the 'iPhone SE 2 Plus', but in the first half of 2021.

The initial model of the so-called iPhone SE 2 is expected to resemble the iPhone 8, including a Touch ID home button, but with a faster A13 chip and 3GB of RAM.

The iPhone SE 2 models will use a 10-layer substrate-like (SLP) PCB for its motherboard, the same technology used by the iPhone 11.

This will benefit multiple iPhone suppliers, including Pending Holdings, Xinxing, and AT&S, even though the SLP will be a less expensive component than the one used in the iPhone 11 series of devices.

The iPhone SE 2 models will not have the 3D Touch feature, removed from the iPhone 11 by the company. Also, it will use a Touch ID fingerprint reader, not Face ID.

The phone will have three color options - silver, space grey, and red.

Earlier Kuo had said Apple was preparing to release a new iPad Pro, a new MacBook and an augmented reality headset by the first half of 2020.
