The report comes from Digitimes, which writes that “Apple is likely to launch as many as six iPhone devices in 2020 – four OLED models and two LCD ones, according to sources at Taiwan’s handset supply chain.”
It’s worth noting that the only specific evidence in the report is a claim that Chipbond Technology, which makes display driver chips for LCD screens, has received orders for two different LCD devices, so take this with a grain of salt.
The original iPhone SE
If there really is a larger version of the iPhone SE 2, it’s said to have a 5.5-inch or 6.1-inch screen. The device is also supposed to arrive several months after the ‘standard’ version, possibly launching at the same time as the iPhone 12 lineup. Renowned Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has said, however, that an “iPhone SE 2 Plus” is being prepared for 2021, so we could be waiting longer for the larger model.
While the iPhone SE 2 and SE 2 Plus/Pro might seem like the names Apple would choose, the devices could be named the iPhone 9 and iPhone 9 Plus/Pro. Cupertino jumped from the iPhone 8 to the iPhone X, so the 9 moniker hasn’t been taken.
As for what to expect in the new handsets, they’re said to look similar to the iPhone 8/8 Plus and come with internals comparable to the iPhone 11, which sounds quite compelling
