Apple had earlier indicated that iPhone SE might not have a successor. But now the US based company seems to have a change of heart.
According to reports, the successor of iPhone SE is indeed in works. The so called iPhone SE2, Digitimes claimed, will be produced in the second quarter of this year. It will have a glass back similar to that of iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X, the report claimed.
Digitimes, quoting sources, said that the iPhone SE2 won’t have the 3D depth sensing Face ID feature though. It said that while it will be mass produced in the second quarter, the iPhone SE2 will be available for purchase by May or June next year.
This is however not the first time that iPhone SE 2 rumours have cropped up.
Last year, reports claimed that the iPhone SE 2 will be made in India and will be launched at much lower price point than the iPhone SE – around Rs 29,000.
Reportedly, the Indian firm (Wistron) which produced the iPhone SE will also be making the new model.
It is being said that the iPhone SE2 will have same features as the iPhone 7, which means it could offer A10 chip, 2GB of RAM, 32/64 GB storage, 12/5 MP cameras and a 1700 mAh battery.
