A new supply chain report from Chinese news website QQ.com claims Apple is preparing to debut a 4.2-inch iPhone SE 2 at WWDC featuring a similar design to the current iPhone SE first introduced in March 2016.
This isn’t the first time we had reports that Apple has updated is iPhone SE in the pipeline, back in August is was said that Apple’s refreshed handset could feature their 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 Apple Post reported on Monday that clues are pointing to Apple hosting its annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) between Monday June 4th and Friday June 8th at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, California, the same venue used last year for WWDC 2017.
While little details surrounding the new “iPhone SE 2” have leaked, it’s likely Apple will improve the internals found on the existing handset, possibly reducing the bezels on the device slightly to allow for the small screen size increase.
Apple unveiled the iPhone SE about two years ago and aside from updating the storage capacities in 2017, the device hasn’t been touched since. Currently the handset sports the A9 chip used in the 2015 iPhone 6s.
