Apple could be ready to launch an iPhone SE 2 soon

Posted:  April 19, 2018   By:    22 comments   


Although it seemed unlikely at first, things are starting to look up for those of you who were excited for a sequel to the iPhone SE. In a new report by a French website, the successor to the iPhone SE could be making an official appearance pretty soon.

Consomac spotted an entry in the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) by Apple who registered a bunch of unreleased iPhone model numbers. These numbers are A1920, A1921, A1984, A2097, A2098, A2099, A2101, A2103, A2104, A2105 and A2106. The filing also stated that each model represents and Apple-branded smartphone running iOS 11.

At this point, it seems too soon for the iPhone 9/XI or whatever Apple will call their next-generation iPhone. That means, there is a high chance that some of these could be the successor to the iPhone SE which hasn’t been updated since its launch back in 2016.

The question is: What kind of refresh would it be? Are we talking about something as simple as a processor update like what we saw Apple do with the new entry-level iPad, or are we looking at some radical redesign like the handset we saw leaked earlier?

I’m still not buying the idea of the iPhone SE receiving a completely redesigned sequel especially considering the little smartphone’s purpose. It is a device designed to make money by recycling old parts and lowering the bar of entry to the iOS ecosystem.

This doesn’t signal to me that it’s the kind of device that Apple would pour too much time or resources into completely redesigning — especially not if the current formula works so well. So, for now, I think that it’ll be a fairly light refresh and I will continue to believe so until I see evidence to the contrary.

…It is a device designed to make money by recycling old parts and lowering the bar of entry to the iOS ecosystem…

Wait for its price. But still ecpect to pay higher even for refurbished parts.

Tera

Nothing wrong with the old ‘retro’ design of the se. I love it. Just need to shave off a bit of the side bezels.
But the camera does seriously need an upgrade. It’s really bad in lowlight when compared to even mid range Chinese phones.

Apple=HighIQ+Rich

What a savage. Please don’t do it. Apple is only for the rich and intelligent elite like our forumer swan.

    Tan tan

    Cow dang put apple logo swan will eat it

Rumours said got an 6.1inch entry level iphoneX using a10 seliing usd550 coming. Dun know true or not?? If iphone not cutting price then not a good strategy for apple leh…android getting more canggih while iphone getting more expensive every year. More and more will jumpship to samsung or huawei.

    bododroiddd

    if cutting price is a good strategy for apple, they wouldve did it to iphone x, just a quarter iphone x managed to sell 29m units. selling cheaper price was never apple's strategy, unlike android.

    doesnt matter android getting canggih or teruk, ios is ios, android is android, ppl who prefer ios, will buy ios and gv no shit to android, vice versa.

    pls doubt yourself more, if not come out with this katak comment LEL

      Butahuruf

        bododroiddd

        it is the cheapest ipad among the models, not the cheap tablet in the market with the price tag of 1.5k

          soyacincau = awesome platform for third world ppl staying at bottom, kesian LEL

Prakash

I don't think so. The biggest feature of apple is its price.

We are living in an materialistic part of the world where diabetes kills more than famine. It is a trend, join it or die.

Ran out of idea must be

Utohhirang

Iphone just brand only….

Tim masak

Just because the iphone are very high price there goes some people who thoughts just he afford to own a lousy iphone then the whole apple brand belongs to him. He is very high class can look down and insults others as poorfag..bla bla..this kind of low class people do not deserves to be an apple fans.

    bododroidd

    u sendiri couldnt afford something but diedie want to talk shits this and that dont deserve to be insulted? lel ni bukan poor, tapi sour grape

Apple is making their own material to build their iphone(though some of it still be gain from other company). The fact that Apple is doing researched to improve their product quality or making their ios is worth it with their product price. I not saying that iphone is good or android does a better job.. But iphone is doing their phone alone. (Get what I mean)… If u in apple position, u will do the same thing.. Just look at their product.. The security of Apple ios, the build quality and other things too. The price of an iphone is use to improve their services and paid off their researched(eg.. The face id sensor. Or the 3d touch before).. U know. I not a diehard fan of apple and android and for android fan, dont feel offended.

Masterjedi

Without founder, apple no longer have soul and visionary. It just pure survivor base on brand, but no innovation. even worst is Tim just repeated product

Line creating even more low end product with high price just make money without a good innovation. It back to 80’ apple, that time also without Steve.
