Apple iPhone SE 2 to be launched in Q1 2018

A camera upgrade should be in order too, hopefully to the most recent 12-megapixel sensor and 3D Touch would be a welcome addition after it was left out of the current iPhone SE.

For those who suffer from short-arm-deep-pockets syndrome, Apple is releasing a new iPhone SE 2. The A11 Bionic processor in the iPhone 8 would be nice, but we wouldn't be surprised if it didn't feature in the much cheaper iPhone SE 2.

The report further states that the second-generation iPhone SE will be assembled exclusively by Taiwanese manufacturer Wistron at its manufacturing facility in Bengaluru, India. This will effectively be Apple's "budget" iPhone, which the company will primarily push in markets like India and China. The iPhone will reportedly hit stores in the first quarter, which would echo the March 2016 launch date of the first iPhone SE.

We heard rumors about a new iPhone SE earlier this year and now it looks like Apple could be planning to launch the handset next year.

In terms of overall design and aesthetics, the company is expected to use the same chassis as that of the original iPhone SE with improved hardware and the latest software. Could we see Face ID, wireless charging, and a lack of the headphone jack on the next iPhone SE? This was intended for those that didn't necessarily want to make the jump to the larger 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch sizes that came with the iPhone 6. Moreover, the SE also supports 4K video playback, which was not available on the iPhone 5S.
