    Possible good news for SE lovers... I just read on MacRumors that there are reports that Apple is planning on launching a new low-cost 4.7 iPhone in the Spring of 2020!

    If it is physically bigger than the current SE I would have zero interest. The 6/7/8 4.7" form factor is just big enough for me to not be easy to use single handed, but without a screen that is significant enough to warrant that trade off. Now if they put a 4.7" screen in the old SE form factor, count me in (and I previously had no intention of buying a new phone within the next 1-2 years).

    I agree after reading the iMore article it appears it will be a hopped Up i8 so I wouldn’t be interested at any price point

    Kind of makes me wonder what their angle is considering they already have three current iPhone models, including a “low cost” iPhone XR (and whatever it’s successor will be). Then again there is a segment of users who don’t need every bell and whistle and like the smaller display and form factor. I can see it selling well overseas especially.

    The article I did read did mention a 4.7 inch iPhone... I think that the timing is odd too. But, maybe Apple is making an effort in attracting users who prefer a less expensive, smaller model. Time will tell, I guess.

    I find this interesting and have been following the rumors of an SE2 for a while.
    Part of me understands the strategy behind an SE. Being truly mobile should not mean having to carry a large device 24/7, it should mean having what amounts to basic mobile needs with us everywhere easily and efficiently. If I need more than that I can bring my iPad Pro. Text, email, weather, the basics done well. That’s what the SE2 should be.

    I believe an edge to edge full screen SE would would be approximately 4.7”....just a thought. If you place an SE on top of a 6,7, or 8 the SE I pretty sure fits right in the screen portion if that makes sense.

    I honestly would be down with a $400 iPhone 8 style with updated cpu. I love my X but for less money I would take the SE2 and run and use my iPad pro for everything else!

    According to the rumours the successor to the iPhone SE will simply be an updated iPhone 8 with the A12/A13 processor and MAYBE a slightly better camera and bigger battery (like the one on the XR).

    So if you were hoping for an OLED display, new tech or a better design then I’m afraid you’ll be disappointed. You’ll be getting the same old 4.7 inch Retina LCD and thick bezels.

    On the plus side, TouchID should be back!

    However the success of this new possible device all depends on its price. Ideally it would be under $500...above that I’m not too sure that it will sell well.

    Yup. The Xr and all future iterations would need to stay at aroun $750 (should be $700). A budget iphone would need to be less than $500 to separate the 2 phones. Then the Pro models be $1000 and up.

    I guess it makes sense that a new SE is based on the 8 chassis with XR internals when the 11 will be the current model. The old was based on the 5S chassis with 6S internals when the 7 was the current. It was just wishful thinking that it would still be a small budget device.

    If a new SE has a full screen without the start button I'll buy it. Same form factor with a larger screen! Otherwise I'll keep the one I have.

    Hopefully the new SE will be made for people like me,that don’t like the move to big phones. I have XL hands but don’t have any need for a phone that won’t fit comfortably in a jeans pocket.
    Full screen,SE original size, thick enough to take a decent battery,and waterproof, that will do it !

    Rumored to have a similar design to iPhone 8 but with the same A13 processor found in iPhone 11. I don’t think we’ll be seeing Face ID on that small of a phone until Apple finds a way to decrease the size of the notch.

    Doesn’t seem like full screen will make the cut but there’s a decent chance the rest will be there!

    No full screen no new SE for me. A larger screen with the same size body is the only thing that works for me.

    It has been and will continue to be interesting in following along this 'saga'! I'm intrigued at what will turn out to be fact, and what will turn out to have been rumor. At this point, it's up in the air and anybody's guess! Except for Apple, of course... they know everything!

    I use mine as a work phone so I don’t damage my pro max. I would love an SE in the frame of a iPhone X but keep its size. That’ll be a day one buy for me lol.

    Actually a lot of people loved the design of the SE. I could handle smaller bezels but love the aluminum sides and headphone jack. Even the round buttons!

    The screen is tiny though! (I had an iPhone 5s and briefly used a 6). How about a 5-5.2 inch display?
