Kuo: Apple is expected to sell at least 20 million iPhone SE 2 models by 2020, early next year as the enhanced version of the iPhone 8 with Apple's latest A13 chip and more will hit the market.
Kuo estimates that by 2020, Apple will sell at least 20 million "iPhone SE 2" units with a probability of 30 million units. Earlier rumors suggest that the device could be sold for $ 399, which is a great upgrade for both budget-conscious customers and emerging market customers where Apple's latest flagships are unattainable.
