Users have been waiting for the next generation of iPhone SE from 2016 but until now there is no official information. Last year, expert prediction Ming-Chi Kuo announced in early 2020 that Apple will officially launch the iPhone SE 2 with an iPhone 8-like design but with iPhone 11 hardware.
Back in 2017, to mark the 10th anniversary of the iPhone, Apple simultaneously launched the iPhone 8, 8 Plus and iPhone X, ignoring the name iPhone 9. If the Macotakara source said it was correct, then after 3 years of waiting Wait, finally the iPhone 9 name is officially released.
