According to the prolific leakster, the iPhone SE 2 will measure roughly 138.5 x 67.4 x 7.8mm (8.6mm, including the camera bump). For comparison, the iPhone 8 had a width of the 7.3mm, so Apple must be doing something with the extra 0.5mm.
Some whispers from the supply chain suggest Apple will ditch the iPhone SE branding this time around, with the more affordable, Home Button-touting handset being branded iPhone 9 instead. That makes a certain amount of sense. After all, this is clearly a spiritual successor to the iPhone 8 range launched back in 2017. However, it’s also likely to prove mightily confusing for consumers.
Apple already sells an iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro, which will presumably switch to iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro in September when it unveils the latest models. Selling an iPhone 9 at the same time will surely have customers frantically searching the shelves of their local Apple Store for the iPhone 10, which they’d mistakenly been calling the “iPhone Ex” three years ago.
Thankfully, we won’t have to wait long to find out what the crack marketing team at Apple have decided on. The Cupertino-based company is widely-tipped to unveil its new iPhone SE alongside two new iPad models at a hardware event in March 2020.
