Apple will release a new iPhone SE in March 2020, reports Kuo

As previously reported by Nikkei Asian Review and verified by Kuo, the iPhone SE 2 will utilize the iPhone 8 chassis packed with Apple's A13 Bionic chip.

Apple is due to report its quarterly results on October 30, which will include the first week of iPhone 11 sales.

If Apple plans to stick close to the pricing of the first-generation iPhone, then it will be an instant hit.

People look over the Apple iPhone 6s models during a product display following an Apple event Wednesday, Sept. 9, 2015, in San Francisco. "This autumn is so far much busier than we expected", one source with knowledge of the situation said, adding that Apple had been conservative about its orders, which were less than for last year's new iPhone.

But Nikkei's supply chain source notes that with the 10 percent production bump, the total volume of orders for the iPhone 11 lineup will be higher than previous year.

Design-wise, the iPhone SE 2 will feature Apple's design on the iPhone 8. The device was appreciated by compact phone enthusiasts as it allows for an easy one-hand operation and still continues to be loved.

Deep Fusion is an AI-powered camera feature exclusive to the iPhone 11 and 11 Pro that takes multiple shots at different levels of exposure. The report does explain that the phone will be cheaper in contrast to the remaining iPhone lineup. If this part of the report turns out to be true, it means that the new iPhone SE 2 will be as fast as the iPhone 11. The expectation is that up to 8 million more iPhones will be sold than expected.

The festival seasons for the U.S. are also not so far as Halloween and Christmas are coming so the increase in production for iPhone 11 will help to boost local United States sales.

To recall, Apple surprised everyone with the launch of the iPhone SE at a time when 5-inch smartphones were the norm of the day. As a reference, before Apple discontinued the original iPhone SE, it went for $349 in it 32GB iteration.
