Apple iPhone SE 2 With Touch ID And No Headphone Jack is Coming In May
Anticipation around the Apple iPhone SE 2 is on a rise now, as more reports claim that it will indeed launch in 2018. A day ago, there were reports of a possible WWDC 2018 launch for the iPhone SE 2 after Apple filed a few iPhone model numbers at EEC. However, a new report has now claimed that the iPhone SE 2 will launch in May and has given us a few details about the upcoming budget iPhone.
The information in the report is based on some details revealed by a few case makers. At the Global Sources Mobile Electronics trade-show, some iPhone case makers revealed that Apple is planning to announce the iPhone SE 2 sometime in May. This contradicts previous reports about the iPhone SE 2 launching at WWDC 2018.

According to the report, the iPhone SE 2’s build and size will be very similar to the iPhone SE. This means that the iPhone SE 2 would not take design cues from the iPhone X and stick with thick bezels around the display. Subsequently, the iPhone SE 2 will have Touch ID as there will be space for Apple to house a home button on the front of the display. However, there will be a major difference between the iPhone SE and SE 2. The iPhone SE 2 will not have a headphone jack, something that Apple has not provided in an iPhone since the launch of the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus.
The report also claims that the iPhone SE 2 will have wireless charging. However, it was unclear about the kind of build quality that Apple will go for. Also, the iPhone SE 2 will run on the A10 Fusion chipset, which debuted with the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. This is a very powerful chipset and for a budget iPhone SE 2, it will provide great processing power.
Just like the iPhone SE, we expect the iPhone SE 2 to be manufactured in India as well. This means that the iPhone SE 2 will be the most affordable iPhone launched in India in 2018. Considering the success the iPhone SE has had in India, we expect Apple to launch the iPhone SE 2 in India along with other major markets like the US and China.
