Here we go with the latest, as we heard multiple rumors suggesting Apple will debut a so-called iPhone SE 2 later this year. According to a report detailing its specs also confirms it apparently that the upcoming second-generation iPhone SE will be receiving a much-needed refresh in 2018. Here is everything you need to know about it from the supply chain.
First, the new report from Chinese news website QQ.com claims to have knowledge of the iPhone SE 2 device’s tech specs, which won’t look like the iPhone X, but rather it would make sense given it’s a lower-end device. Instead, the new model will purportedly have a similar design as the original iPhone SE. With a metal back and frame, top and bottom bezels on the front, and a Home button.
Now that we have another story added into the mix, with Chinese qq.com website citing supply chain sources when saying that the updated iPhone SE will launch at WWDC 2018 along with all new specifications.
A key difference would possibly be a larger 4.2-inch display, but this is questionable given it could make it harder to use the iPhone SE in one hand, which is supposedly preferred by a subset of customers. However, it’s legitimate that Apple could trim down the bezels of the new iPhone SE slightly.
Atop a chassis that will more resemble the current model than anything more fleshy, such as the iPhone X. When compared, the next iPhone SE will ship with a new 4.2″ display, and if that’s going to happen, then this would be the first time Apple has shipped an iPhone with such a display size. While the current iPhone SE processes the marginally smaller 4-inch display that owners of the device apparently love.
Otherwise, Apple is likely more focused on making under-the-hood improvements to the iPhone SE this year. As the device is now outdated by a few years, though. The report claims the new model will be powered by a faster A10 Fusion chip, which is also supposedly still have 2GB of RAM with 32GB or 128GB of storage space available.
There have already been many speculations about Apple launching a new iPhone SE in 2018, with many of the sources based in Asia, including research firm TrendForce and publications like the Economic Daily News. One of the latest suggested a new iPhone SE with wireless charging could launch in May-June.
KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo also recently cast some doubt regarding a second-generation iPhone SE launching in the Q2 of 2018. If there’s really is the so-called iPhone SE 2 on Apple’s roadmap, He expects it will have few outward-facing changes. Predictions are like it, the device would likely have a faster processor and a lower price, rather than iPhone X-like features, such as a nearly full-screen design, 3D sensing for Face ID, or wireless charging.
Finally, the story today comes to an end predicting that it’s more likely that an iPhone SE refresh would come later in the year, potentially alongside the annual flagship iPhone announcements in September.
