If super expensive phones don’t get them, maybe cheaper ones will.

That seems to be the thinking of Apple, which Bloomberg reports plans to unveil its much anticipated low-cost iPhone “as early as March.” The phone, which will reportedly look like the iPhone 8, is rumored to have a 4.7 inch screen and a Home button.

That’s right, all you Touch ID fans can rejoice — there will likely be no Face ID on this smaller bad boy.

So, what will it have? Well, a beefed up processor to match the iPhone 11, plus the possibility of competing against other smartphones on the matter of price. Who would have thought?

The same Bloomberg report notes that Apple’s suppliers “plan” to start putting the new devices together in February. Previous reporting from Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo suggested a starting price of US$399, teeing up the new phone to please all the iPhone SE stans still mourning the budget phone’s discontinuation back in 2018.

Kuo also noted the possibility of 3GB of RAM and 64/128GB of storage, with space gray, silver, and red as options.
