All iPhones this year will come with 5G support, and this new capability itself raises serious challenges for the Cupertino firm.
The device is expected to fearure a 5.5 or 6.1-inch display with a full-screen design like iPhone.More news: How The Masked Singer Helped Revitalize Its Season 3 Winner
Incidentally, Kuo says the 5G iPhone will have a 6.7-inch screen, bigger than the 6.5-inch one in the iPhone 11 Pro Max.
"We suggest that investors should focus more on the impacts of consumption downgrade on iPhone demand because we believe that Apple's execution could minimize any risk of development and mass production delay", writes Kuo. With a starting price of just $399, the iPhone SE has muscled in squarely on phones like the Pixel 4a. And while it shares a name with the device that arrived back in March of 2016, it doesn't look anything like the original 4-inch iPhone SE. The iPhone X entered mass production in September for a late October and November availability. The iPhone XR was released in October 2018. The phone was previously rumored for a release in the first half of 2021.More news: Autistic boy, 9, found dead after kidnapping from Home Depot parking lot
Kuo also said that the company is likely delaying the release of the larger iPhone SE. That may seem great at first, but it's also becoming a problem for Apple since this device is now the preferred option over the iPhone 11. This will allegedly have a 5.5-inch or 6.1-inch screen, with no Home button.
The second-generation iPhone SE looks like the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus (which have both been discontinued) though it comes with some upgraded internals including Apple's A13 Bionic processor. The 128GB iPhone SE 2 is $449.99 without a deal while the largest option, the 256GB model, will cost you $549 without a deal.More news: PS5 will be an "evolution" for gaming sound, says Sony
CIRP's new data covers the first quarter of 2020 (January-March) and it says that in the states, the iPhone 11 family accounted for 66% of total iPhone sales in the US during that time period. There's no reason therefore to believe that the iPhone SE won't be a massive success for Apple.
