    Price

    Price will be the highlight of this iPhone since it will cost less than iPhones normally do. According to Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, iPhone SE 2 will be available at a starting price of $399 (30,400). This is the same price iPhone SE launched in 2016, and Apple could be opting for the same price this time as well.

    Design

    There have been many leaks and renders highlighting the design of the iPhone 9. It will feature a dated design looking similar to the iPhone 8. Apple will also include the Touch ID button on the iPhone 9 meaning no Face ID for this iPhone. Colour options for the iPhone 9 are said to be silver, grey and gold.

    Specs

    Coming to the important bit, the iPhone SE 2 is highly expected to run on the A13 Bionic chipset. This is the same chipset powering the iPhone 11 series. iPhone SE 2 is also expected to pack 3GB of RAM and storage options of 64GB and 128GB. Up front, the iPhone SE 2 will feature a 4.7-inch display which will most likely be an LCD screen.
