Launched in 2016, the first Apple's iPhone SE served as the smaller, more pocketable member of the iPhone family There’s a great news for anyone looking to upgrade their iPhone without spending a lot on something like the
The iPhone SE 2 could be half the price. Below are some of the most appealing rumors, specifications and complete Apple iPhone SE 2 that have circulated so far. Here's everything we know about Apple's rumored iPhone SE 2.
When is the iPhone SE 2 release date?
The first Apple iPhone SE was released at a dedicated event in March 2016 and updated with more storage in March 2017. This year, we thought we would see something in March 2018 too, but the event came without mentioning any iPhone at all.
According to Focus Taiwan report in August 2017, it was expected to launch in the first quarter of 2018. Later, Taiwan Electronic Times predicted that the iPhone SE 2 will arrive in March. However, it’s most likely to enter mass production in the first quarter of 2018.
Will the iPhone SE 2 be an iPhone X SE?
There are rumors that we could see a slightly bigger screen size that goes up to 4.2 inches. While it would also make sense for Apple to retain the same 4.0-inch display for the iPhone SE. This might not make a difference when it comes to the viewing experience, the device could end up featuring a crisper resolution and bigger battery.
What are the rumoured features and specifications of the iPhone SE 2?
If the iPhone SE 2 is really coming then we would like to see some of the design changes from the recent iPhones. Specifications are similar to the iPhone 7-standard, with the A10 processor, 2GB of RAM, 32- or 128GB of storage, 12Mp and 5Mp cameras and a 1,700mAh battery, but the same 4in screen. There might not be a 3D touch because Apple is expected to cut down costs.

How much will the iPhone SE 2 cost?
Apple iPhone SE 2 prices in Australia won’t be so expensive to buy because Apple would like to keep the second-gen iPhone SE 2 comparably affordable. Back in November, a Chinese news outlet predicted that the iPhone SE 2 will launch in July 2018. It also reported that it will cost the same as the original SE when it launched, starting at AU$679.
Do note that this is still a rumour, which means that these predictions could be false. But, if it is true then it’s a good choice for people wanting to get the iPhone experience but without the hefty price tag.
