APPLE IS PLANNING to release a successor to the "affordable" iPhone SE in 2018, according to reports. They are still clinging to the iPhone SE but that will soon turn 2-years old right on time for an upgrade? The is primarily targeted at the developing markets such as India.
Wistron has already been called upon by Apple to take over manufacturing duties of the iPhone 8 alongside the iPhone SE, while Foxconn, Apple's longstanding manufacturing partner, handles the iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X. These two reports from legitimate sources make it look very likely that the iPhone SE 2 launch date will be within the first few months of the year.
There was scepticism when Apple released a small screen smartphone called iPhone SE in 2016 as consumers seemed to be going insane after big-screen phones and most original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) went with the trend but reality turned out to be different. Could we see Face ID, wireless charging, and a lack of the headphone jack on the next iPhone SE? Previous rumors had suggested that the handset would launch this year. For imaging, the device might come with a 12MP primary camera and a 5MP selfie camera at the front. Also, it is tipped that the iPhone SE 2 might be priced starting from $450.
To recall, the iPhone SE is powered by a 64-bit A9 chipset, faster GPU, and M9 motion coprocessor for Always-On 'Hey Siri.' The iPhone SE has received massive improvements in comparison to the 2013 "5S model".
