Where ever you can find such a statement, it is probably meant relative to other iPhones: compared to the other iPhone lineup, this one can be considered entry level (due to the lack of even slower iPhones). Compared to Android phones however, it becomes apparent it is more oriented in the midrange category.
As others have already called out, the chipset will be way too powerful for the phone to be considered “entry level”, whether it’s the A12 or the A13. One of it’s direct counterparts would be the upcoming Pixel 4a.

L.O.R.D, 11 hours agoI don’t want to see that ultra common glass back. Make it metal please, AppleMetal means no wireless charging; no thanks. I can keep a phone intact.

Mediatek sux, 8 hours agoIf it actually has an a13, there is nothing else more powerful at any price.I don’t think they’ll put the A13. If they do though, they’re going to sell a lot of these.
Can’t believe that idiotic “iPhone 9” moniker is still sticking out its ugly head. It’s like a recurring cancer…
Well most likely JD launch that page because of the rumor.

Its the magic of Apple (i’m a lifelong Android user).
The outdated tooling and machinery which exists for the iPhone 8 & 8+ production lines will, with minimal effort (A13 inplace of A11 & a GB extra ram lol) keep doing what it used to, and people for whom an $800+ iPhone was out of reach will suddenly have the aspirational product (thanks to genius product placement & Apple marketing over the years) within or just a minor push-up from their budget.
This iPhone will pull-in no less than HUNDREDS of Millions of $ for Apple if not a Billion.

Airbus A340-500, 9 hours agoNo matter the “2020-defying bezels”, I think we all know this phone is going to be a top-selle… moreI totally agree. Finally we have a more or less compact phone again and not one of those monstrosities you see popping up here on this website on a daily basis.
Regarding the bezels: There are rumours out there that Apple will release an “iPhone 12 Mini” in the design of the upcoming iPhone 12. No doubt it will be waaaaay more expensive than this one, but I do hope the rumours are going to be true.
Also, the Pixel 4a will as well be smaller than many other phones, although with 144mm not as compact as the iPhone SE 2020 (more like the S10e)
And finally, I read that Sony is thinking about a new compact phone again, although with a 21:9 aspect ratio. Its width will be incredible tiny, if the rumours are true.
Unfortunately, nothing is confirmed at this point and looking at the state the entire world is currently in, I believe we will have to wait quite a bit for all of these phones to be made public.

I mean if it’s 4.7 make the case with a 90% screen to body ration not 64%.
The New iPhone 9: half bezels half screen
No matter the “2020-defying bezels”, I think we all know this phone is going to be a top-seller.
Having said that, I’d love to see Apple pulling-off a coup d’état by eliminating a large amount of those bezels – in which case, I will certainly line-up to buy one.
I hate these modern day large, one hand-unusable phones.

Anonymous, 11 hours agodoubt it will have the a13
by most it will be a12
they didn’t even put the a13 in the new ip… moreOriginal SE got the same chipset as 6s.
A14 is coming within months. A12 will be 2 years behind by then.
And also, iPhone 8 is using A11. Equipping SE2 with A12 is a dumb move.
