With the possible dates of Apple’s annual developer’s conference, WWDC 2018, out in the wild, rumours have started pouring in regarding what we can expect at the event.
As reported previously, Apple may launch iOS 12 and a new iPad. In addition to these developments, more reports are still hinting at a possible launch of the iPhone SE 2, despite several other reports to the contrary.
According to a report by MacRumors, Apple may launch the SE 2, with the ‘classic design’ referring to the design of the original iPhone SE. This means that the device will not look anything like the iPhone X. The reason for maintaining a similar design may be a conscious effort to keep the price point of the device down. The major difference in the newer version, when compared to the original device, is that SE 2 is likely to come with a 4.2-inch display. This supply chain news was originally picked by Chinese website QQ.com (Chinese).
The report highlights scepticism about the increased size of the display because that could make one-hand operation of the device a bit difficult. However, it pointed out that the company may increase the size of the display by reducing the bezels on the device. The SE 2 could pack a faster A10 Fusion chip to ensure faster performance considering, the device will be launched in 2018. It will be an unlikely move by Apple to introduce a new smartphone at WWDC, which has focused mainly on all the Apple products except the iPhone.
