Apple’s iPhone update in the autumn of 2018 could see three or even four new iPhones launched at the same time..
Here are some of the possibilities:
- iPhone 9 and iPhone 9 Plus
- iPhone 11 and 11 Plus (aka iPhone XI and XI Plus)
- iPhone X Plus (to join the existing iPhone X)
- iPhone SE 2
We’re pretty sure an iPhone SE 2 is coming. The question is whether there’s going to be more than one. Alongside the iPhone X lookalike mentioned above, it’s possible there will be a second one that looks more familiar to existing iPhone SE owners.
Well rumors are iPhone SE release date will be glimpsed during the WWDC this year. A well known UK blog The Express quoted in their Article that if true, this would mean the end of the Touch ID fingerprint scanner on the SE with Apple possibly bringing its Face ID technology to its budget range.
Face ID unlocks the device simply by glancing at it and was first introduced on the iPhone X late last year.
Like Apple’s new flagships, the SE could also be covered in glass which would allow it to be charged wirelessly
Other rumoured specs for the iPhone SE 2 include a waterproof build, A10 CPU with 2GB of RAM, 12MP rear camera and a 1,700 mAh battery.
So, the big question is, when will Apple actually reveal this new device?
There are conflicting reports about a launch date with some suggesting a big reveal will come at Apple’s WWDC developers conference next month.
According to Mac Otakara Apple is yet to decide on a final design of the iPhone SE, which would clearly mean it won’t be revealed in two weeks time.
Mac Otakara says that a Chinese accessory manufacturer, which exhibited during the Japan IT Week Spring 2018 Mobile Expo, said that production has not begun for the model.
Now it seems there could be a fourth phone to add to that list if the latest SE rumour is correct.
Luckily, there’s not long until we find out more with WWDC just two weeks away.
