The main event that everyone was waiting for – the release of the iPhone 12, took place just a few days ago. However, many fans of the brand did not calm down on this and began to discuss what device Apple will release next.
Analyst of Tianfeng Securities Ming-Chi Kuo (Ming-Chi Kuo) said that next year the company plans to release another inexpensive model of the line of iPhone SE. According to available data, this phone can be called the iPhone SE Plus. To reduce costs, the company Apple uses a branded fingerprint scanner Touch ID.
The analyst believes that the new smartphone iPhone SE Plus will be really accessible to a wide audience. According to him, this smartphone will be equipped with a screen diagonal of 5.5 or 6.1 inches. In this model Apple will continue to use LCD displays. Earlier Chen Jun, chief analyst at Qunzhi Consulting, said that Apple will continue to produce smartphones with LCD screens in the next 3-5 years.
It is suggested that the iPhone SE Plus will use the same body as the iPhone XR or iPhone 8. But if we are talking about Touch ID, there is something in between these models. Or Apple will move the scanner to the side panel. Since this smartphone will be relatively inexpensive, the support of 5G in it is not expected. It can be equipped with a slower version of the branded single-crystal system Apple A14, which will be called Apple B14. The same platform is expected in the iPhone 12 mini.
Ming-Chi Kuo also added that Apple has postponed the launch of the new iPhone SE Plus in the second half of next year.
