Apple Might Launch The iPhone SE 2 In Early-2018
After launching the highly successful iPhone X in September of 2017, the company has already started setting goals for 2018. A new report suggests that the tech giant is planning a mid-cycle iPhone launch and unveil the successor to the iPhone SE, the iPhone SE in the first half of 2018. The iPhone SE 2 will be the mid-range offering from Apple who still prefer the 4-inch display form factor in the age of 5-inch smartphones being called ‘Mini’.
As was with the iPhone SE, the iPhone SE 2 will have a small form factor as compared to modern-day smartphones and sport a 4-inch display. Even though certain reports have suggested that Apple will adopt the iPhone X design across the board for its 2018 marquee smartphones, the iPhone SE 2 will still have large bezels and a home button with Touch ID.
The iPhone SE 2 is expected to have the upgraded Apple A10 Fusion chipset and 32GB, 64GB and 128GB storage variants.
Even though entry-level phones have started coming out with dual-cameras (the implementation can be questioned), the iPhone SE 2 will retain the single camera setup from the original iPhone SE.
The Apple iPhone SE is manufactured in India and retails for a price of Rs 21859 for the 32GB storage variant. The iPhone SE 2 will enter the budget segment around the 25-30K price bracket and essentially replace the iPhone SE 2. It will be interesting to see Apple advertises the new iPhone SE 2 as a ‘Made In India’ product and try to appeal the average consumers that won’t usually buy an iPhone because of its higher price tag.
