Are the newer iPhones too clunky for you? Despite the arguably over-complicated user experience of the iPhone X, it seems like Apple isn’t ready to let its whole ‘accessibility for all’ vision go just yet—so thankfully, it looks like a new mini iPhone is in the works.
Taiwan’s Economic Daily News reports that a second-generation iPhone SE is underway, and is expected to launch in the first quarter of 2018.
As per the report, the device—tentatively named the ‘iPhone SE 2’—will be assembled by Taiwan-based design manufacturer Wistron in its Bangalore factory.
Earlier claims by Indian tech site Tekz24 describe that the rumored phone might include an A10 Fusion chip, a five-megapixel front camera, a 12-megapixel rear camera, and 3D touch.
It is also expected to have a bigger 1,700 mAh battery, 2GB of RAM, and is said to be available in 32GB and 128GB storage capacities.
Seeing that the iPhone SE shipped in March 2016, it’s plausible that the ‘iPhone SE 2’ will debut in March, too.
The current iPhone SE features a four-inch retina display screen and runs on an A9 chip. It also has a headphone jack, 2GB of RAM, and a 12-megapixel rear camera. Apple lowered its starting price to US$349 this year.
According to a new report, Apple plans to update the 4-inch iPhone in early 2018. Some features in the “iPhone Mini” might include A10, 3D Touch, and a larger camera. The overall design would likely stay similar to the SE. The current 4-inch iPhone, iPhone SE hasn’t been updated since March 2016.
