iPhone SE 2 release date
The original iPhone SE 2 was announced in March 2016, but it didn’t get a significant update in 2017. (It just got a bump in storage to 32- and 128GB.) Instead, it’s looking like the iPhone SE will get an update in spring 2018, with March looking most likely.
A Focus Taiwan report in August suggested that the new iPhone SE will launch in the first quarter of 2018. Sources claim this new iPhone will be manufactured in India by Wistron, the company that puts together the current iPhone SE.
Will the iPhone SE be discontinued?
However, this is all assuming the iPhone SE will get an update. Several analysts have suggested that there won’t be a new iPhone SE at all.
In January 2018 Ming-Chi Kuo wrote a research note arguing that Apple had “used up its development resources” and would not be able to produce a new SE for the spring launch window.
“The announcement of three new iPhone models in the same quarter in the second half of 2017 was the first time Apple made such a major endeavour,” he wrote. “We believe the delay of iPhone X, which had the most complicated design yet, shows that Apple doesn’t have enough resources available for development. With three new models in the pipeline for the second half of 2018, we believe Apple may have used up its development resources.
And back in July 2017 China’s Huaquang Research analyst Pan Juitang predicted that Apple wouldn’t update its 4in phone, arguing that there isn’t enough demand for smaller devices as many consumers opt for larger displays for watching movies, playing games and browsing the web. The vast majority are accustomed to 5in or bigger displays, he added.
iPhone SE 2 Availability
Even if the SE is updated, it may not launch where you live. Some reports suggest that the new SE handset might not be available every where.
According to the Economic Daily, a Chinese-language site, Apple is working on a low-end iPhone code named Hangzhou. This low-end, lower-priced model will apparently be launched in an attempt to “seize the low-end market” in China and India.
That report suggests that this low-end model could launch in the second half of 2018.
Another report claims that the Iphone SE 2 will launch in India prior to launching in other territories. This sounds dubious to us, although it might fit with Apple’s plans to offer a cheaper handset to certain territories (normally Apple does this by offering an older version of the iPhone to certain countries).
iPhone SE 2 price
We expect the iPhone SE 2 to be similarly priced when it launches.

The new iPhone SE won’t bse a flagship, so you shouldn’t expect any totally new features – it’s more a question of which features will trickle down from the top-end iPhone X and 8 Plus.
This is the biggie, and if we are looking at an iPhone SE with Face ID it would imply that we’re also getting an edge-to-edge screen and no Home button.
Ming-Chi Kuo the ‘iPhone X SE’ will indeed get Face ID, the same controversial but impressive biometric tech as on the iPhone X, which also means Animoji and, we presume, Portrait Mode on front-facing selfies. Oddly enough, since the analyst predicts a single camera lens on the rear of the X SE to keep costs down, we could end up in the situation where Portrait Mode is available on front- but not rear-facing shots.
The new iPhone SE 2 could offer wireless charging thanks to the rumoured glass back. Viwe that it received a tip from a ‘very reliable source’ that the new iPhone SE 2 ‘will have a glass back panel’ and that it ‘might support wireless charging.
Apple’s 3D Touch screen tech has been around for a while, and it feels logical to add it to the SE. But sources say this will not be the case: Ming-Chi Kuo has given it the thumbs down. As Tech Times orvesbse, this runs the risk of the feature being seen ‘as nothing more than a gimmick that only customers who purchase the more expensive iPhones may enjoy. iPhone SE 2 Release date, price, features & Specifications
