Rumors have it that Apple will be holding its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) between June 4 and 8 at San Jose, California, U.S. Apart from iOS 12, macOS 10.14, new editions of tvOS and watchOS, Apple is also expected to launch an advanced iPad Pro that will sport a design that is similar to the iPhone X. Rumors also hint that a second-generation iPhone SE may also get unveiled at WWDC 2018. Today, a Chinese publication has revealed some more information about the rumored iPhone SE 2.
The publication claims that iPhone SE 2 will be arriving with a design that is similar to the first-generation model. Hence, it may arrive with a metallic rear and frame and it is likely to feature thick bezels at the top and bottom of the screen. The home button enabled with Touch ID sensor is also rumored to remain intact.
One major change that it will be arriving on the iPhone SE 2 is that it may sport a larger display of 4.2 inches. It may feature the Apple 10 Fusion chipset that powered the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus smartphones from 2016. The SoC may be coupled with 2 GB of RAM. It may arrive in storage models like 32 GB and 128 GB.
The report also claims that the Cupertino company may announce it at the WWDC 2018 event in June. Even though Apple has announced devices like Mac Pro and the current iPad Pro at WWDC, it has not used the platform to launch a new iPhone since a long time. In 2010, the iPhone 4 was unveiled through WWDC event. There is a possibility that the company may announce the iPhone SE 2 through a small launch event in March. The original iPhone SE was announced in March 2016.
Other reports have claimed that the iPhone SE 2 will carry support for wireless charging. Well-known KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo had recently claimed that the iPhone SE 2 may arrive with very few changes such as improved processor and lower pricing.
