For those who didn’t see the need for a massive 4.7-inch or 5.5-inch display, or who were put off by the price of the iPhone 6s or 6s Plus, Apple launched the iPhone SE in early 2016 where it came with a 4-inch display and an affordable price tag, sporting a design reminiscent of the iPhone 5, 5s.
However the handset was not refreshed last year as some might have thought, but instead it seems that the refresh could be taking place this year if rumors are to be believed. These rumors are further corroborated by a report from DigiTimes which claims that the iPhone SE 2 could be officially launched come May or June 2018.
In terms of specs, it is not clear what we might be able to expect, but wireless charging is a feature that is said to debut in the phone. Given that 2017’s iPhones all feature the technology, it makes sense that Apple could bring the same tech onto the iPhone SE 2. Other rumored specs include the use of the A10 Fusion chipset found in the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, 2GB of RAM, a larger 1,700mAh battery, and 32GB and 128GB storage options.
Either way take it with a grain of salt for now, but like we said, the iPhone SE has been designed to be an affordable alternative, so if the prices of the iPhone X are a bit too dear for you, then perhaps the iPhone SE 2 could be worth your consideration.
