Apple may release four iPhones this year, starting with an expensive SE 2 in June
Despite all the rumors and screen protector leaks, the iPhone SE 2 that is likely to be announced on Monday by Apple, is now tipped to just come with upgraded internals, instead of that whole notch redesign affair.

Granted, it's just a single supply chain source quoted, but this premise makes way more sense than the notch-y theory, as, first, a TrueDepth camera for FaceID is unlikely at the SE 2 price point, and, second, the phone is likely to be very small, so a "full screen" design will be an overkill anyway.

The insiders, however, are tipping that the iPhone SE 2 may come more expensive than the current SE price point, which is explicable - the SE started at $399, and is now at $349, so the SE 2 may go back up to the $399 tag, but with a much higher amount of storage from the get-go. Given the latest pricing trends, though, even what will supposedly be the cheapest iPhone this year, may start from $449, too.

Pegged for release in June, shortly after Apple's announcement at the WWDC expo on Monday, the SE 2 is said to be just the first of four iPhones that Apple is expected to unveil this year. Next in line will be an iPhone X successor with 5.8" display, a 6.1" affordable iPhone, and a top-line X Plus with 6.4" screen, housed in the footprint of the current 8 Plus, or smaller. That's quite the lineup, and, with hundreds of million users with aging iPhones, Apple will come well-prepared to take advantage of this tsunami of an upgrade cycle.

4 iPhones will be interesting to see. I feel like this means that they will have to retire a bunch to make room for that.

Well apple is the second biggest smartphone vendor with 15% and Samsung the first with 21%, not such a big difference there, don’t you think?

14% is a lot for a company that sells only premium smartphones.

Samsung didn't change their design from the s8 to the s9 and lots of people complained. now apple keeps the same design and everybody thinks it great.

You can tell by his comments he’s probably a case of school dropout and he’s IQ is below 100 for sure

You claim his IQ is below 100, but you typed “and he’s IQ is below 100 for sure”

Just a typo, can happen to anyone especially with these predictive keyboards that sometimes think they are smarter than you and also to people whose native language is not English but I believe I can express myself very well and people can understand my writing, and btw I am very sure about my IQ which is not low at all as the troll above is implying about iOS users
