Apple could debut the heavily anticipated iPhone SE 2 at its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in June.
The updated budget device has been the subject of intense rumour in recent months.
What else is in store from Apple in 2018? We pore over all the rumours.
However, analysts have claimed lately that Apple may not ever release the device, instead focusing on its iPhone X updates due later this year.
Now though, a Chinese report says that Apple is plotting the iPhone SE 2’s release at its annual developer event.
It says the phone will feature a marginally bigger 4.2–inch screen, with smaller bezels accommodating the larger display.
Inside, the iPhone SE 2 is said to feature Apple’s A10 chipset, as well as 2GB of RAM and 32GB and 128GB storage options.
It’s almost two years since Apple first revealed the iPhone SE. Last year it boosted its storage but kept its specs the same, meaning it’s long overdue an upgrade.
But with the company said to be looking to move away from its home button-based iPhones towards those that support Face ID, the iPhone SE 2 may never see the light of day.
