9to5Mac reports that the launch of the new iPhone SE could be imminent, as Apple has started adding accessories for the new low-priced iPhone to its official online store. Targeting cost-conscious consumers, the handset is expected to pair an external design borrowed from the 2-year-old iPhone 8 with contemporary innards like an A13 Bionic processor with 3GB of RAM. It was effectively replaced with the iPhone XR that year, which took some of the best bits of the iPhone XS and packaged them into a slightly less slick chassis.
Given Apple's brand appeal and the fact that Apple has NEVER made a cheap iPhone before, save for the iPhone 5c, it's entirely possible that the iPhone 9 could go on to become the best-selling iPhone of all time.
Several sources suggested that the new iPhone SE could launch as soon as today, but at this point we think it's unlikely that Apple is still going to debut it on the bottom end of a Friday. Specifically, there will be three storage tiers starting at 64 GB, echoing iGeeksBlog's claims last week. The "2020 iPhone SE" is speculated start at $399 for the base 64GB model. This implies that there will not be any variations when it comes to the design of the next-generation iPhone SE and the iPhone Eight that was launched again in 2017 with the design an identical to that of the iPhone 7.
A rumoured release date of April 5 was initially in doubt as China battled against industry slowdown amid the coronavirus pandemic, which ravaged Apple's supply chain.

Prosser states Apple will be announcing the iPhone 9 on April 15.
The iPhone SE is predicted to ship to patrons as quickly as late April.
9To5Mac, on the other hand, can't corroborate this information.
The technology powering biometric facial recognition in Apple devices could also help iPhone and iPads orient the display to the user's face, according to a new patent spotted by AppleInsider. Unfortunately, Jon Prosser says mass production hasn't finished, which means there is a chance it won't be unveiled until a later date.
