IPhone SE 2 Rumored For WWDC 2018 Announcement

Adjust Comment Print

A surprise announcement comes from Apple now which claims iPhone SE2 is coming and it will sport a slightly larger 4.2-inch display when compared to the original 4-inch model.

According to KGI's Ming-Chi Kuo, the likelihood that an iPhone SE 2 would feature any form factor change, 3D sensing features, or even wireless charging, is nearly non-existent. However a new report is claiming that they will, and that if and when the iPhone SE 2 is announced, it will be at WWDC 2018. According to earlier reports by Ming Chi-Kuo, the supply chain might not allow for an iPhone SE 2 to come up and Apple will likely concentrate on the three iPhone X variants for 2018.

The iPhone SE, which was launched in March 2016, is now becoming a little old in the tooth - and fans of small screen iPhones are getting a bit antsy. It is being said that the iPhone SE2 will have same features as the iPhone 7, which means it could offer A10 chip, 2GB of RAM, 32/64 GB storage, 12/5 MP cameras and a 1700 mAh battery. The report should be taken with a pinch of salt, since others have indicated that Apple iPhone SE might not even exist.

Many claim that the decision to go ahead with a second generation iPhone SE has a lot to do with the smartphone's success in India - especially after it got a price cut as a result of being assembled locally - as well as Apple's efforts to double its market share in developing countries like India and China. Buyers can consider going for the 128GB variant and thankfully, the phone will retain the home button with a fingerprint scanner. Apple is also manufacturing the iPhone SE in India.
