7:19 PM

Apple’s much-talked-about updated iPhone SE2 is all set to release within a few months. There is a lot of hype surrounding it, leading to several speculations and rumors.

Apple’s original budget iPhone namely iPhone SE was launched in 2016. This smartphone had similar features as Apple’s high-end designs which include a 12-megapixel camera, Apple A9 chip processor, and 16 or 64GB of storage. Encased in a tiny 4.7-inch body, it was priced at a mere £359 approx. $485, thereby making it almost £200 approx. $270 cheaper than iPhone 6S, the other Apple smartphone launched in 2016.

It has been two years since the release of the original iPhone SE and considering the number of leaks, renders, and rumors about iPhone SE2, it is clear that Apple is actually going to upgrade its budget iPhone.

To give you an idea of what iPhone SE 2 aka iPhone X SE or iPhone Mini 2018 will carry when it will be unveiled, here are the specifications, features, rumors and latest update on this low-cost, and handy smartphone.

Release Date

Even though there is no accurate data release available, rumors indicate that Apple’s iPhone SE2 is likely to release at the company’s Worldwide Developers’ Conference in June.  Apple will launch its upcoming software upgrade, iOS 12 during WWDC 2018 and that is when they plan to release iPhone SE 2.

However, some speculations claims different release for iPhone X SE. Rumors claim that since iPhone SE 2 will not be the biggest release of 2018, hence it is possible that Apple will launch the budget iPhone with some smaller event.

Feature Rumors

While iPhone lovers are wondering whether the iPhone SE2 will come with a headphone jack or not, it seems like Apple might choose to remove the headphone jack as was the case with iPhone 7. Moreover, the smartphone is likely to come in 32GB or more, which is a step up from the original 16GB starting model.

MacWorld had previously reported that the SE2 like the previous one will have a 12MP camera, but will have a 7MP front camera along with Retina Flash. Moreover, leaks suggest that the new smartphone is likely to have a new A10 Fusion chip for better performance.


Considering the video leak, iPhone SE 2 seems similar to the old one as it will retain the 4.7-inch size and the iPhone 5-esque design, which comes with a thick bezel around the screen. If the iPhone SE2 were to follow the footsteps of iPhone 8, it might come in three colors: Space Grey, Silver and Gold.

If you are wondering how the new iPhone will be different than the older versions, here it is – iPhone SE2 might have a glass back to support wireless charging like the iPhone 8.


The cost of iPhone SE2 will start from approximately £349 ($471). Users might find the new budget iPhone exciting since it is not too expensive, while giving the consumers an iPhone experience.
