Apple Rumored to Be Planning Budget iPhone

Apple may soon launch its cheapest iPhone in years with a price tag of just $399, according to a top Apple expert believes the firm is secretly working on a handset called the iPhone SE 2 set for launch in early 2020.

The price of iPhones has steadily been rising, with top models now costing close to $1,500.

But the trend can’t continue forever, and some budget-conscious Apple fans may not be able to afford the latest models. Ming-Chi Kuo, an industry analyst who has successfully predicted loads of Apple announcements, believes a cheap model is on the way.

This device would be a successor to 2016’s popular iPhone SE ($359), Kuo claims. He thinks it would cost $399, which would translate to £399-£429 in the U.K. based on Apple’s current pricing structures.

This handset is tipped to come in silver, space grey and red color options, as noted in a 9to5Mac report. And it will look like the curvy iPhone 8, rather than the squared-off iPhone SE.

Kuo says the mobile will feature the same powerful A13 chip featured in Apple’s new iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro. But it might feature slightly less RAM and would probably miss out on the iPhone 11’s all-screen display.
