Noted Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has claimed that the rumoured iPhone SE 2 will feature Liquid Crystal Polymer (LCP) antenna, which is design is said to improve wireless transmission in the handset.

The news regarding the rumoured Apple SE2 is now picking up the pace. We have already read a lot about the design and internals of the phone, and now, a report has claimed that the Cupertino-based tech company will use an improved antenna design in the device. Called Liquid Crystal Polymer (LCP), the antenna design is said to improve wireless transmission in the handset.

The news comes from noted Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo (via MacRumors), who also claims that Career Technologies and Murata Manufacturing will begin supplying Apple with antenna components for the ‌iPhone SE 2‌ in early 2020. This seems to make sense because reportedly, the iPhone SE2 will hit the shelves at the end of the first quarter of 2020. Kuo predicts the device will start at $399 in the US.

It is said that the Apple iPhone SE2 would look like an iPhone 8 and is touted to feature powerful internals, like an A13 processor and 3GB RAM. The phone may sport a 4.7-inch LCD display and Touch ID home button. Kuo expects that the handset may ship in two storage variants: 64GB and 128GB storage with Space Gray, Silver, and Red colour options. According to the analyst, Apple will sell 30 – 40 million units across 2020, and the target audience of the iPhone SE2 would be the owners of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s.

Apple recently launched the iPhone 11 Series of phones, which include the iPhone 11, the iPhone 11 Pro and the iPhone 11 Pro Max. The phone feature Apple’s indigenously developed A13 processor and run iOS 13. While the affordable iPhone 11 sports two cameras on the back and an LCD display, the costlier ones -- iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max -- ship with a triple rear camera setup and an OLED panel.
