According to Digitimes Research analyst Luke Lin, Apple is planning to introduce an ‘iPhone SE 2’ with wireless charging and a new glass back design similar to the iPhone 8 in May/June of this year.
This isn’t the first time we had reports that an updated iPhone SE in the pipeline, back in August is was said that the refreshed handset could feature Apple’s A10 Fusion chip, with 2GB of RAM, 32GB and 128GB storage capacities, a 12-megapixel rear camera, a five-megapixel front camera, and a slightly larger 1,700 mAh battery.
The current iPhone SE looks much like the iPhone 5s, including its smaller four-inch display.
The analyst said…
For the entry-level sector, Apple is preparing a new inexpensive smartphone similar to the iPhone SE for 2018, featuring the wireless charging functionality, but not 3D sensing. The smartphone will begin mass production in the second quarter with the official launch in May or June, Lin noted.
