Those who miss having the option to use your fingerprint to unlock your phone will be pleased to know that Apple is bringing back the Touch ID through their new smartphone. It also looks like the new iPhone won't have the Face ID function.

It will employ the same processor as the iPhone 11

According to this video by Mashable, the iPhone SE 2 or the iPhone 9 is set to have the same powerful A13 Bionic processor as the iPhone 11.

It's expected to be priced at U.S. $399

Apple's much-anticipated low-cost smartphone is set to start at U.S. $399 (roughly P20,000)—significantly lower than the starting price of the iPhone 11 which is U.S. $699 or P47,990 in the Philippines.

It might be unveiled sooner than you think

According to Bloomberg, Apple is set to unveil their new smartphone model as early as March.
