Apple’s iPhone SE 2 will support wireless charging, and will be released in the summer of 2018. Luke Lin, an analyst from Digitimes Research in Taiwan said about Apple’s latest action.
In addition, MacRumors has also quoted that “Apple is reportedly working on a new entry-level smartphone model similar to the iPhone SE that will support wireless charging and be released in time for summer 2018.” Luke Lin, who believes that Apple’s iPhone SE successor will have a glass back similar to the iPhone 8 series and iPhone X, but will lack the 3D sensing capabilities of the latter model.
This is what he said about ‘iPhone SE:
For the entry-level sector, Apple is preparing a new inexpensive smartphone similar to the iPhone SE for 2018, featuring the wireless charging functionality, but not 3D sensing. The smartphone will begin mass production in the second quarter with the official launch in May or June, Lin noted.
But what he saying did not mention the size of the new entry-level model, the details are the same with four-inch Phone SE 2 in previous rumors, despite earlier speculation that the device will be released in the first quarter of 2018, not in the second quarter.
Is all from August last year that the rumors flied about a the specifications of Apple’s next small form factor smartphone, when Indian tech website Tekz24 claimed Apple’s next iPhone SE model would have an A10 Fusion chip, 2GB of RAM, and 32GB and 128GB storage capacities, and a slightly larger 1,700 mAh battery.
In November, China’s Economic Daily News claimed Apple’s second-generation iPhone SE was set for the first half of 2018 and would be assembled by Wistron at its factory in Bengaluru, India, where some assembly of the current iPhone SE occurs. Taiwanese market research firm TrendForce also recently predicted that Apple is planning to launch a second-generation iPhone SE in 2018 to target the mid-range smartphone market.
