Instead of the iPhone 9, Apple will introduce the iPhone SE 2: When Apple did not submit a single new device to WWDC 2018, the users were distraught and called the conference boring. Although earlier the company often showed new devices at the conference. Moreover, it was expected that Apple would reveal the long-awaited iPhone SE 2. After that, there were many rumours that the company is not going to produce this smartphone at all, but apparently, the device will be released in September.
Famous insider Guillermo Rambo found in the service for developers Xcode mention of the third iPhone, which is meant as a budget smartphone Apple with a diagonal display 6.1 inches. Previously, it was assumed that this would be the iPhone 9, but it looks like it will be the iPhone SE 2.
In the Xcode database, the smartphone is listed as an iPhone xx with the codename iPhone 9.7. The most interesting is that the hardware platform for the device will be the Apple A10 Fusion processor from the iPhone 7. Recall that the iPhone 7 was introduced two years ago. Despite a respectable age for processors, the A10 can compete with modern flagship chips in terms of performance.
According to the latest data, the budget iPhone (which can be called the iPhone SE 2) will receive an IPS display with a diagonal of 6.1 inches. The design of the smartphone will be similar to the flagship iPhone X 2018 – it will have a cut-out on the screen and a Face ID face-scanning system. On the back side, there will be only one camera peephole.
The estimated cost of a smartphone around 600 dollars
