iPhone SE2: Release Date, Price, and Features of Apple's 'Budget' Smartphone
Apple’s iPhone SE2 is the most awaited smartphones of 2018, and if you prefer iPhones that are small and cheap, you might be interested to know that there are rumors that hint at a new version of the iPhone SE that is all set to launch this year.
We have for you here all the detail that we could gather about Apple’s follow up to the iPhone SE. From the release date to the specifications, features, price, and design, here is a roundup of iPhone SE 2.
iPhone SE 2 Release Date
There are ample rumors floating around regarding the possible release date of iPhone SE2. While some have pointed to a May 2018 release, few others have suggested that iPhone SE2 will come in the first half of 2018.
The possibility of the SE 2 launching at Apple’s WWDC 2018 in June is also being speculated. In fact, the reason that led to the rumor was the discovery by the French site Consomac that pointed out that the company had registered a bunch of new phone models with the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC), and none of those are applicable to the iPhones that are currently available. All of them fall in the list of devices running iOS 11.
The actual update to the iPhone SE is not likely to happen until September this year, going by analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. He believes that apart from the updates to the iPhone X and a bigger version of that full-screen iPhone and an OLED screen; Apple will also launch a less expensive full-screen iPhone with a 6.1in LCD screen. This is the one that is likely to be iPhone SE 2 and the successor to the iPhone SE. Now, this handset in question is larger than the iPhone SE which means that Apple is unlikely to sell a smaller handset…
Price of iPhone SE 2
The iPhone SE, which at present is available in 32GB and 128GB versions costs $399 and $449 respectively. iPhone X SE or SE2 is likely to come in the same price range.
Design of iPhone SE 2
There is very little information about the design of the handset though it does seem like it will come with a glass back. This is quite possible since all the Apple’s recent handsets have a glass back that will facilitate wireless charging. One of the questions that seem to bother many Apple fans is whether the handset will have the headphone jack.
Apple is unlikely to redesign iPhone SE 2 since it is too busy with the successors to the iPhones X and 8. However, a change in color is foreseen.
Features and Specifications
The handset is being rumored as being developed at a factory in India. It will have an A10 Fusion processor, similar to that on the iPhone 7, and will also come with a 12MP camera behind. An upgraded 7MP selfie camera will be on the front.
While the internal RAM will be at 2GB, the storage options could be either 32GB or 128GB. Check out more details here.
Moreover, the battery of iPhone SE 2 will most probably be raised from 1,640mAh to 1,700mAh. Since it will have a tinier and a lower resolution screen than other iPhones, the battery life is expected to be pretty good.
