When everyone is betting on whether or not we’ll see an iPhone 12 on this afternoon’s keynote… they show up traces of an iPhone SE Plus in Best Buy’s internal systems! With all the buzz and looking ahead we had forgotten about it. It was rumored months before the release of the current iPhone SE, but it didn’t end up being released and the filterers assumed that Apple had postponed its release.
That presentation can be today, because at the Best Buy store we can see on sale a glass protector for the “iPhone SE Plus 2020”. You can see it here, although I wouldn’t be surprised if Best Buy hides the product when they realize it’s been taken out early. It would be an iPhone of the size and appearance of the 8 Plus, although with the A13 Bionic chip inside.
Big but cheap, the best of both worlds
This iPhone SE Plus would meet the demand of those who want to an inexpensive iPhone but with a big screenThis has been more or less replaced by the iPhone XR for the time being. A 5.5-inch iPhone at a good price (maybe 400 euros) would be very attractive for those who buy an Android phone just because they can get a bigger screen without scratching their pockets too much.
We will see what happens, but it would be the way for Apple to present a new iPhone without having to show its iPhone 12 yet. It is curious, no analyst, specialist or filter has realized this even as a possibility… Apple can always have an ace up its sleeve that we never expected.
