The news come in line with what Apple analyst Ming Chi Kuo had predicted earlier. Kuo had revealed the successor of Apple iPhone 9, which is also believed to be called Apple iPhone SE 2 Plus, will house a full-screen design but no Face ID. This means that the device is likely to be small. He futher added that Touch ID come along with the power button. Besides, the iPhone 9 successor will come equipped with an LCD display. He further added that the next-generation budget iPhone will carry a 5.5-inch or 6.1-inch display.
“Apple will launch the iPhone SE2 Plus in 1H21. We predict that the display size will be 5.5 or 6.1-inch. This model will adopt a full-screen design. The notch area will be smaller because of no Face ID support. The Touch ID will be integrated with the power button, which is located on the side,” According to an excerpt from Kuo’s research note with TF International Securities that was reported by MacRumors.
On the other hand, the soon-to-be launched iPhone 9 is expected to house a 4.7-inch display along with features somewhat similar to Apple iPhone 8.
