The stories surrounding the much-awaited introduction of Apple’s iPhone SE 2, a power-packed successor of iPhone SE launched in 2016, has gained considerable hype in the recent past.
Recent rumours convey that Apple doesn’t have adequate resources to introduce iPhone SE 2 right now. Though iPhone SE might get an update this year in March, iPhone SE 2 might not be just a mini budget iPhone as anticipated previously.
The word on the street is that iPhone SE 2 (SE meaning Special Edition) is most probably a functional cross between iPhone SE and iPhone X. iPhone X being one of the star products from the company and iPhone SE being the cheapest iPhone available, it will be fascinating to see what Apple brings on table as iPhone SE 2.
According to some of the speculations, iPhone SE 2 might feature Face ID with notch screen design and a 6.1 LED panel. Apple is expected to deliver hardware specifications like A10 chip, 2GB of RAM, 32GB/128GB of storage, plus 12Mp/5Mp cameras and a 1,700mAh battery. This wireless charging facilitated device might drop features like 3D sensing and 3D touch in order to cut back the cost.
So, when is the release date?
A report from Tekz24 suggests that Apple is at present working on a device, whereas other sources believe that the company might declare the release date soon. Apple might unveil iPhone SE 2 at its Spring event, held in March. Digitimes analyst Luke Lin believes Apple will launch the phone in the second quarter, around May-June.
What will be the price of iPhone SE 2?
Like the specifications, a lot of stories around the pricing of iPhone SE 2 have surfaced. If I make an educated guess, the iPhone SE 2 is expected to come in a price range of £649 to £749 in the UK market.

Many individuals have thought that Apple will declare the iPhone SE 2, the successor to the iPhone SE, nearly one year after its introduction in March 2017, as is the case with the updates of its flagship iPhone.
When Apple declared some new products with the inclusion of the particular edition of new iPad and red iPhone 7, there was no iPhone SE 2. Rather, the company updated the original iPhone SE with the upgrades of storage.
Presently, it is £479 for 128GB and £379 for 32GB a year on from its first launch.
By far, it appeared the iPhone SE would follow in the iPhone 5C’s footsteps as a promising one-off, with KGI Securities’ reliable analyst Ming-Chi Kuo stating that no new iPhone SE will come in 2017.

Where it leaves the iPhone SE 2 is a difficult question. Apple might never introduce one but we are expecting for 2018 depending on the comments of Kuo.
