A well-known leaker has got a 2020 vision of the new iPhone 9? iPhone SE 2? Let’s just call it Apple’s newest effort at a budget phone.
On Tuesday, Twitter user @OnLeaks shared renders of the “iPhone SE 2.” The render pictures feature Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo had prophesied back in October: 4.7-inch LCD display with bezels, a Touch ID home button, and a single-lens rear camera. It looks like the iPhone 8, but without a headphone jack and with an A13 Bionic chip.

OnLeaks also thinks this 2020 model will be a bit fatter than its 2017 equivalent — 7.8 mm versus iPhone 8’s 7.3 mm.
We’ll have to wait to find out what materials this iPhone will be made of, though. OnLeaks told MacRumors the material render is based on his forecasts.
I am sure the iPhone may opt for cheaper materials than the ones used in the render–elegant metal frame and frosted glass used on the iPhone 11 Pro. Its body may look more like those used on the iPhone 8. One important differentiating factor between the iPhone 8 and this new upcoming unnamed iPhone, OnLeaks said, could be the frosted glass back.
If Kuo’s is right about this, we’ll find out just exactly what material this iPhone is made of very soon. He foretells the phone will debut early this year for around $399, available in 64 GB and 128 GB models. This all sounds good.
