The iPhone SE 2 was rumored to debut at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) event that was held at the beginning of this month. However, Apple did announce the highly anticipated successor device for the iPhone SE from 2016. Popular case maker Olixar had claimed in the recent past that the iPhone SE 2 will be arriving with iPhone X-like design. However, citing information coming from its sources, the accessory manufacturer has now claimed that since Apple is concentrating on the large-sized iPhones arriving later this year, it won’t be launching the iPhone SE 2 this year.
In the recent months, accessory makers and CAD renders had revealed that Apple would be launching the iPhone SE 2 as a successor for the iPhone SE. However, the Cupertino company has always been silent on its existence.
In the previous month, Olixar had reportedly started the official line of accessories for the iPhone S2. However, now that the device is said to be cancelled, the case maker has halted the production. This suggests that the original iPhone SE was a one-off device from the company to check the market response.
Rumors had claimed that the iPhone SE 2 would be having a size similar to the predecessor. However, it would still be housing a larger display because of the slim-sized bezels. The display of the phone was also expected to feature a notch like the iPhone X. It was speculated to borrow specs from the iPhone 8. Some reports had even claimed that the smartphone would be called iPhone X Mini.
