A phone at $399 with the same specs as the iPhone 11 and 11 Pro is a compelling one. Aside from the original SE, Apple has not been willing to budge on its premium pricing.
Currently the cheapest iPhone sold by Apple is the iPhone 8 at $449 for 64GB, so we’d assume that Apple would undercut this price or, as is more likely if the SE 2 rumours are true, replace the iPhone 8 altogether.
We still don’t think Apple will call this phone the iPhone SE 2. If we were put on the spot, we’d say it will be called the iPhone 8s, but with Apple you never know. It could be iPhone 9 or iPhone R – we will have to wait until Q1 2020 to find out if these rumours hold water.
