Apple iPhone SE 2 image leaked online, launch likely in September

first_imgApple’s upcoming low budget device iPhone SE 2 is coming soon. Or so we thought. iPhone SE 2 has been in news for quite some time now and rumours till now have been consistently suggesting that the Cupertino-based tech giant could launch the device in June during its annual developer’s conference WWDC 2018. However, recent reports suggest that the company may not launch the phone till September.According to a report by Macotakara, the purported new device is nowhere even close to mass production as the company hasn’t even finalized the design yet. As of now, Apple is considering multiple prototypes for iPhone SE 2. While a 6-inch display is in the consideration, the company could also retain its 4-inch display. One thing that is common is all prototypes is the presence of an iPhone X-like notch.The report also suggests that prototypes being considered for the final design do not feature a home-screen button at the bottom of the phone and their upper parts are cut into the shape of TrueDepth camera, which indicates that iPhone SE 2 could feature Apple’s Face ID technology.As far as the launch date is concerned, the report states that Apple, instead of launching the device in the second quarter of 2018, could launch it in the third quarter of the year. The launch of iPhone SE 2 could most likely coincide with the launch of iPhone X Plus.As far as the design is concerned, there are some contradictory reports circulating on the social media. On one hand reports suggest that Apple hasn’t narrowed down of the design of iPhone SE 2, on the other hand, a latest render from case maker Olixar has revealed details about the design of the rumored device. The leaked image shows iPhone SE 2 sport a notch on top, just like iPhone X, along with a chassis similar to iPhone 5S. The absence of a home screen button could also indicate that the company is planning to incorporate Face ID in the device. However, nothing has been confirmed till now.advertisementALSO READ: Apple iPhone SE 2 launch expected on June 4: Possible specs, features, price and other key detailsMeanwhile, separate rumours suggest that iPhone SE 2 could be powered by Apple’s Fusion 10 chipset which debuted in iPhone 7 and it could sport 2GB RAM with an internal storage of either 32GB or 128GB.
