Kuo: Low-Priced iPhone SE 2 With A13 Chip And 3GB RAM To Arrive Early 2020

Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is out with a report today that predicts Apple will release the low-priced iPhone SE 2 in Q1 in 2020. He expects most of the design and hardware specifications are similar to those of the iPhone 8. However, the upcoming budget smartphone to include the latest A13 processor and 3GB of LPDDR4X RAM.


As a result, iPhone SE 2 will be able to meet the demands of more consumers and boost Apple's smartphone market share due to the lower cost; Kuo estimated the company will ship 30-40 million units in 2020. Plus, all Apple content and services can run smoothly on the iPhone SE 2, helping Cupertino to further expand their second-biggest services business. 

The report supposes that the users of the iPhone 6 series have the following three characteristics, so that iPhone SE2 is preferred when switching devices: (1) used to iOS ecosystems, (2) limited budget, (3) low desire for new features (such as Face ID, multiple-lens camera system) that they would rather stick to Touch ID and single-lens camera. 
We forecast that Apple will launch the more affordable iPhone SE2 in 1Q20. For the most part, the form factor design and hardware spec are similar to iPhone 8's. The most significant hardware spec upgrade will be the adoption of the A13 processor and 3GB LPDDR4X. iPhone SE2 will likely increase iPhone's market share and benefit Apple's promotions for service and content. We expect that the iPhone SE2 shipment will reach 30–40mn units in 2020.
Kuo says that iPhone SE 2 would be a significant growth catalyst for Apple in 2020 and is among the best choice for users of the iPhone 6 series with about 100 million worldwide. The iPhone 6 series is the best-selling iPhone model. Since the iOS 13 does not support the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, those users need more urgent replacement.
