The iPhone SE has been the subject of rumors for a few months now, with smart money being in high-end devices receiving much-needed refreshment by 2018. Though most likely the card, what it refreshes it will be much less certain and there is a contradiction of reports coming out of many source.
Now we have one more to add to the mix, with Chinese news site qq.com citing supply chain sources as saying that the updated device will be launched at WWDC 2018 along with all the new specifications.
Chief among the new things qq.com that is claimed to know is that the iPhone SE will be shipped with a new 4.2-inch screen on top of the chassis that will resemble the current model rather than the more striking one, like the iPhone X. This will be the first time Apple has sent a iPhone with such screen size, and iPhone SE currently has a slightly smaller 4 inch screen that seems to be liked by device owners.
While the iPhone SE 2 is very unlikely to switch from the current sense-style metal design, we have little confidence in the 4.2-inch display rumors that are paying off.
Inside, the report claims that the new SE SE refresh will include a new faster Fusion A10 chip, though it also says that Apple will ship devices with the same 2GB of RAM. Storage options are said to be 32GB or 128GB.
Finally, the report claims that Apple will announce the device during WWDC in June, something that has not happened since the iPhone 4 all the way back in 2010. Although it is possible, we found this unlikely, although nobody actually knows about Apple late- This end. .
We still think it's more likely that SE SE's refresh will come later this year, potentially in addition to the annual iPhone flagship announcement in September.
