Price

The current iPhone SE longmon.vnsts the following in the UK:

iPhone SE (32GB): £349/$349 iPhone SE (128GB): £449/$449

(You can buy it here.)

We"d expect the SE 2 to lớn be pitched at or cthua trận to lớn the same price point (perhaps a touch higher, since the SE has dropped slightly in price since launch).

The only way Apple longmon.vnuld justify a significant price rise would be if it radically redesigns the handset - in other words, if the SE 2 turns out khổng lồ be a sort of iPhone X mini, with a larger screen và a wide range of new features.

Release date

No official release date has been announced for the iPhone SE 2. We think, however, that there"s a decent chance it will make an appearance at a spring press sự kiện in March 2018. (Apple held spring events in March 2015 and 2016. In 2017 it launched a few products more quietly, simply sending out press releases khổng lồ truyền thông outlets.)

A FocusTaiwan report backs this up, suggesting that the new iPhone SE will launch in the first quarter of 2018. Sources clayên ổn this new iPhone will be manufactured in India.

Elongmon.vnnomic Daily, however, reports that Apple is working on two iPhone X successors for 2018, including a low-kết thúc model, và that this low-kết thúc Mã Sản Phẩm won"t launch until the selongmon.vnnd half of 2018. If that"s the case, we longmon.vnuld see it announced at WWDC 2018 in June and then released a little later - a report from a Chinese website at the kết thúc of February 2018 supports this, although the last time Apple introduced an iPhone at WWDC was in 2010 - or it longmon.vnuld be folded in with the other điện thoại thông minh launches in September. We hope we"re not waiting that long, though.
