Apple is rumored to be working on a successor of the iPhone SE, which could be named iPhone SE 2. Over the last few months, various leaks rumors surfaced online related to the smartphone.
Now, a new report suggests that the iPhone SE 2 could get launched somewhere around May this year. However, there’s a possibility that the Cupertino giant could come up with a different name for this device.
The new report comes from a Japanese website Macotakara which cites a case maker as its source. The report says that the next-generation iPhone SE will get launched in May. Earlier this month, Eurasian regulatory filings also suggested that the smartphone launch is just a few weeks away.
The design of the upcoming smartphone is expected to be very similar to the iPhone SE. While the iPhone is powered by Apple A9 chipset, the upcoming smartphone is said to come with Apple A10 Fusion chipset, which was released during the Apple iPhone 7-series launch. Furthermore, the report adds that the company will get rid of the 3.5mm audio jack.
The report further suggests that the Touch ID will stay in place and there won’t be the new Face ID feature. There’s also a possibility that the smartphone will come with support for wireless charging but it is not yet known if Apple opts for a glass body for this device.
Earlier, a Chinese publication reported that the iPhone SE 2 may sport a larger 4.2-inch display and added that the processor will be coupled with 2GB RAM along with 32GB and 128GB storage options. Last month, a new rumour surfaced online which suggested that the phone could be launched as an India-exclusive device.
However, Apple has not yet confirmed anything related to the next-generation iPhone SE smartphone. While Apple iPhone SE 2 is expected to get announced in May, Apple could also wait a bit longer and launch the smartphone at its Apple WWDC, which is scheduled to start from 4th June.
