iPhone SE will not see the light of day this year, Say Sources

Back in 2016, Apple officially unveiled the iPhone SE following months of endless rumors. The iPhone SE marked Apple’s strong return to the 4-inch smartphone segment. The original iPhone SE was designed for those who were expecting a small-screened iPhone with crazy specs. The first generation SE sports the same design as iPhone 5s while featuring premium specs.

However, iPhone SE failed to live up to expectations as it saw a poor sales performance. Apple dropped the price of the phone and then launched it in emerging markets. Apple iPhone SE hit more than 3 million registrations in China. In India, Apple’s 4-inch iPhone model was one of the hottest items.

Apple is expected to launch the second generation iPhone SE this year. In reality, we have heard a lot of rumors hinting at the new features and changes coming into the device. Reports say that the iPhone SE will make its debut in September, alongside iPhone X Plus and two standard models.

However, it seems that there will be no second generation iPhone SE this year. Sources say that Apple will not launch the SE 2 in 2018. It seems that Apple needs more time to work on the device. Instead, Apple wants to focus on successors to iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X this year.

iPhone SE 2 is rumored to come with a lot of features and changes. One such feature lies in wireless charging functionality and Face ID. Face ID was debuted on iPhone X, allowing you to quickly unlock their device. Apple has been improving Face ID since the launch day. And, there is a good chance that Apple will include Face ID in iPhone SE 2. However, Apple might retain the same Face ID we have already seen on iPhone X.

In terms of specs, the second generation iPhone SE might feature Apple A11 chipset, just like the current iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. Sources say that the SE 2 will be unveiled in March 2019, just like the first gen model.

Apple’s new iPhone models will be announced in September this year. Apple might launch an iPhone X Plus to replace the current iPhone X.
