A report by Taiwan's Economic Daily News suggests that the Apple iPhone SE 2 is expected to make a debut in early 2018. A previous report suggested the same and also reported that the new iPhone SE will sport a design similar to the older iPhones. As per the new report, the rumoured iPhone SE 2 could be assembled by Apple’s manufacturer Wistron at its Bengaluru factory in India, where some of the current iPhone SE’s are already assembled.
Both the new and previous reports suggest that the launch of the new iPhone SE 2 will probably line up with the current iPhone SE’s launch, which was in March 2016. The new smartphone is expected to retain the 4-inch screen size and could be powered by Apple’s A10 Fusion chips. It is tipped to feature TouchID instead of the FaceID, as seen on the iPhone X and come with a single rear camera setup. It is also not expected to sport an edge-to-edge or bezel-less display akin to Apple’s current flagship smartphone. The report speculates that the device will be priced around $450 (Rs 29,265 approx, directly converted).
A recent report suggests that Apple may launch its 2018 flagship smartphone with dual-SIM support. The report by KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claims that Cupertino based company will launch three new iPhones next year which will feature Intel's XMM 7560 and Qualcomm's Snapdragon X20 modems enabling faster LTE data transfer and support for dual SIM with dual standby. He notes that it’s not clear yet if the next iPhones will feature a SIM pre-embedded in the smartphone or come with a dual SIM slot.
Kuo also stated that Apple's three new iPhone models for 2018 could include two with OLED displays and one with an LCD display. All the three smartphones are expected to feature an edge-to-edge design similar to the iPhone X. You can read more about the report here.
