Apple may also be working on a successor to the iPhone 8 with a larger screen of 5.4 inch iPhone. This reports a generally reliable website. The device does not have a Touch ID, but Face ID.
iPhone SE 2 version with 5.4 inch screen?
Just like the iPhone SE 2, the device would have the same dimensions as the iPhone 8 . Where the new entry model of the iPhones, however, has to do with a 4.7 inch screen, this model gets a larger display.
For this, the fingerprint scanner is omitted and the screen can cover a larger surface of the device without the device itself growing. To log in safely and quickly, this 5.4-inch iPhone would have Face ID for face recognition.
That is what Japanese website MacOtakara claims . They have received the information from sources within the Apple production chain that were present at CES. The site is usually fairly reliable with Apple rumors. A few weeks ago they received a dummy from the upcoming iPhone 2020 , which points to an iPad Pro design.
The site also reports that the new iPhone will have a larger camera than its predecessor. This is assisted by Apple’s well-known True Tone flash. There were earlier rumors about an iPhone 2020 with 5.4 inch screen.
This device, a bit smaller than the iPhone 11 Pro , would have an OLED screen, dual camera and A14 chip. That may also result in a considerably higher price than the iPhone SE 2. This is seen as an entry-level model for 2020.
Available in fall of 2020
The iPhone SE 2 would be the first iPhone to be presented by Apple this year. The rumors speak of a presentation in March and it is quite possible that the device will eventually get a different name. MacOtakara reported earlier that Apple may choose the name “iPhone 9” as the entry-level model this year. The iPhone 2020 with 5.4 inch screen may be planned for the fall of 2020.
