Although Apple has entered an era of larger iPhones but that has resulted in higher price tags than ever; for instance the iPhone X costs in four figures of US Dollars. For those who are still fond of 4-inch display and affordable price range, here comes a good news as the Cupertino based tech giant is all set to unveil second generation of iPhone SE that was released in March 2016.
iPhone SE 2 at WWDC 2018
Recent reports claim that Apple may unveil the alleged iPhone SE2 in June this year at an event of Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) 2018 being organised by Apple. The reports further claims that the upcoming iPhone SE 2 may arrive with a glass rear, supposedly to enable wireless charging.
We are right to say this because metal is not meant to be used for wireless charging therefore the glass-backed iPhone SE2 would certainly sport the new technology. As of this moment, the iPhone X, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone 8 are the only smartphones from Apple that are enabled with wireless charging since they come with glass rear.
iPhone SE 2 – Expected Features
The rumors suggest the iPhone SE 2 may bring a smaller display of 4-inch in size; though some reports suggest a 4.2-inch screen. It is also expected to feature an Apple A10 Fusion chipset; the same one used in iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. For memory aspects, we may see 4GB RAM sporting two variants of 32GB and 128GB internal storage.
In May 2017, a thread appearing on Weibo had leaked an image that showed the glass back panels for the alleged iPhone SE 2. The image shows that the rear camera and its LED flash are arranged vertically. It is believed that Apple may embed a 12MP rear camera and 5MP selfie snapper; both will be capable of making at least 2160p@30fps videos.
It is also expected that the iPhone SE 2 will arrive pre-installed with iOS 11 and it may include a 1,700mAh battery. Keeping the Apple’s support strategy in mind, we can say for sure that the device will be supported for software updates for at least 4 years.
iPhone SE 2 – Pricing
It is likely that Apple may launch iPhone SE 2 with a price tag of around $400 (~PKR 44,000), far less than latest iPhone models. Rumors also suggest that the new smartphone will be manufactured in India.
Stay tuned for more updates.
