Apple can launch TWO new versions of its budget-friendly iPhone SE 2 this year, the report said
- Apple may release two versions of its iPhone SE 2 this year
- Both models have an LCD screen and can be supplied in various sizes
- Previous reports suggest that the phone costs $ 399
- The budget device will be available in 64 GB and 128 GB and in different colors
Customers looking for a cheaper alternative to the Apple flagship, iPhone 11, may soon have multiple options.
According to a new report from DigiTimes, Apple plans to release not one but two versions of its updated, budget-friendly iPhone SE.
Both new devices, aptly referred to as the iPhone SE 2, are reportedly equipped with an LCD screen as opposed to Apple’s more expensive OLED screen – a difference that the price is likely to decrease considerably.

DigiTimes does not elaborate on how the models will differ, but according to AppleInsider, they will probably have different screen sizes. A larger version comes with a 6.1-inch display, while a smaller version spans 5.5-inch.
The DigiTimes report is based on packaging orders received by a Taiwan-based company for two iPhone SE 2 models, although no one else has yet to confirm the existence of those different models.
A release date follows a number of other details that Kuo has published, including a price tag that the phone costs $ 300 less than Apple’s new premium device, the iPhone 11.
Kuo says the next iteration will cost Apple’s iPhone SE $ 399 and come in three different colors and two storage layers – a 64 GB version and a 128 GB version.
The colors are expected to contain space gray, silver and product red, according to 9to5Mac.
The iPhone SE 2 is said to be similar to the design of the iPhone 8, but comes with the latest processor from Apple, the A13 Bionic – the same chip included in both new iPhone 11s – despite having 1 GB less RAM than Apple’s premium models.
Kuo says the phones are likely to be positioned as a way to lure iPhone owners who still use the company’s older models, especially the iPhone 6 and 6s, who can’t afford the company to pay $ 700 iPhone 11.
Apple is also planning to launch a new, more expensive range of phones from September this year, reportedly called the iPhone 12.
This would include three 5G models – the 5.4-inch iPhone 12 Pro 5G, the 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Pro Plus 5G and the 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max 5G.
There are also three 4G models – the 6.1-inch iPhone 12 4G, the 5.4-inch iPhone 12 Pro 4G and the 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Pro Plus 4G.
The three smaller handsets have dual rear view cameras, while the Plus and Max models feature a triple rear view camera with Time-of-Flight 3D detection capabilities.
