Apple may introduce a new budget iPhone, which, having basic characteristics, will take the niche of the cheapest mobile "apple" gadget. In fact, such a model will not become an absolute novelty - its predecessor is the iPhone SE, which was removed from sales last year. The model disappeared from sale at the end of 2018, although the demand for it was quite high. During its existence on the market, the SE iPhone has sold over 40 million units.
One of the main reasons Apple has decided to release the successor to the iPhone SE is the desire of the corporation to strengthen its position in the Chinese and Indian markets. In these countries, there is a decrease in sales of "apple" smartphones due to keeping their cost at a fairly high level. The updated inexpensive iPhone should eventually become a competitor to mid-range smartphones Huawei, Samsung and Xiaomi in China and India.
The expected "state employee" will inherit the compact form of its predecessor. Despite the fact that buying an iPhone cheap is often an impossible task, the new product will receive a relatively low cost (in comparison with other Apple smartphones) - within $ 400.
The announced budget iPhone has not yet received an official name. It is known that in comparison with the iPhone SE, the gadget will be slightly larger. Instead of a 4-inch screen like the SE model, the novelty will be equipped with a 4.7-inch IPS-display. However, the smartphone, code-named "SE 2", will still be the smallest - by far the most compact device is the iPhone XS with a 5.8-inch screen.
At one time, when creating the iPhone SE, the exterior of the 5S model was used as its basis. In terms of technical equipment, the iPhone 6 became the base. In the modern version of SE 2, the iPhone 8 will act as a design basis, which means the possible presence of the Home key and the Touch ID system in the budget novelty instead of Face ID technology.
Internally, the new budget iPhone will be very similar to Apple's 2019 line of smartphones. Thus, in his arsenal will be 4 GB of RAM and the A13 Fusion chipset. In addition, the announced gadget will receive two cameras - one main and one front, similar to the iPhone XR model.
