Apple To Unveil iPhone SE 2 At WWDC 2018

SE 2 concept

This would be very unusual since Apple hasn't announced a new iPhone at the WWDC since the iPhone 4 in 2010.

Apple is reportedly working on the successor of its much-popular iPhone SE. There also will be a variant offering 128GB of native storage. The iPhone SE 2 will be...

When Apple replaced the 4-inch iPhone 5s with the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and 5.5-inch iPhone 6s Plus in 2014, it effectively stopped making a model with modern specs that could be easily used one-handed. The latter makes the most sense since the compact form factor is a key appeal of the series. The device will be powered by the latest A10 chipset with 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage and being an iPhone, it obviously will not feature an SD card slot for expansion. Previous reports also point towards the upcoming iPhone SE 2 being manufactured in India by Wistron - the same company which started assembling the current generation iPhone SE in Bengaluru in 2017. Sadly, this piece of information happens to be true as it came directly from one of China's KGI security analyst.

We saw last year how Apple had to delay the iPhone X launch as the company managed to introduce three iPhones in the same year. The iPhone SE 2 is not a priority for now. According to some sleuthing, this year's WWDC 2018 keynote will be held on June 4th. Apple will likely show off the iOS 12, macOS 10.14, and newer versions of watchOS and tvOS at the event. Well, the blog did some digging and found that McEnery Convention Center is booked during every single week of June except for the first week, which suggests that WWDC 2018 will begin on June 4th, the first Monday in June.

The upgraded hardware, not to mention wireless charging and other potential features could mean that you could end up paying more for the iPhone SE 2, but will you?
