iPhone SE2 Again Rumored To Launch Alongside iPhone X Plus In October: Report
The Cupertino-based tech giant typically launches its iPhone series in a September event. Speaking about the iPhone SE2 release, it seems that the much-rumored budget-friendly handset will make its first appearance in September 2018 along with the iPhone X Successor.
iPhone SE 2 Rumored Release Date
According to a report by MacWorld, there have been numerous rumors stating that the iPhone SE 2 will be launched this year. It can be recalled that there’s a speculation that the iPhone SE successor will arrive in May 2018, but it failed to materialize. After that, there were talks suggesting that the budget-friendly iPhone will make its first appearance during Apple’s WWDC last month 4 June. Unluckily, the tech company only used the even to show off its software including the iOS 12 and watchOS 5.
Seeing the situation, it appears that the Apple fans will have to wait until September to see iPhone SE2. As a matter of fact, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has made his predictions about the new LCD iPhone and he claims that it might be unveiled during Apple’s September event along with the iPhone X successor. Nonetheless, it is just based on speculations and is advised to be taken with skepticism.
iPhone SE 2 Rumored Specs
Based on a report, the iPhone SE 2 will be armed with an A10 processor, which is somewhat an older chip since it was first seen in the iPhone 7. But despite that, this is an improvement on the original iPhone SE’s A9. This chipset is expected to be paired with a 2GB of RAM and either 32GB or 128 GB of internal storage. Camera wise, it is expected to be equipped with a 12MP rear-facing camera and a 5MP FaceTime camera
As for the battery capacity, it is expected to be powered by a 1,700mAH battery that is slightly better from the 1,640mAh battery of its precursor. Nonetheless, this may be counterbalanced by the inclusion of a bigger and consequently more power-hungry screen that measures 4.2-inch.
In addition, there is this Chinese report from Feb 2018 stating that the iPhone SE2 will have the same design as the current iPhone SE. Also, it is believed that the Home Button will remain. Based on the same report, it will still preserve the classic iPhone shape and the front button that will support the fingerprint scanning.
iPhone SE 2 Price
As of this moment, there are still no available details about the iPhone SE 2 price. But then, the current iPhone SE 32GB is tagged at £349/$349 while the 128GB variant is priced at £449/$449. With these prices, it is supposed that the iPhone SE 2 will have a price tag that is pitched at or close to the same price point as its precursor.
It is also worth noting that the only way Apple could vindicate a noteworthy price increase would be if it fundamentally redesigns the smartphone. To make it clearer, if the SE 2 turns out to be some sort of iPhone X mini that has a bigger screen and a wide variety of new features, that’s time the Cupertino-based tech giant can have a significant price mark up.
