Apple Rumored to Be Readying a New Budget-Friendly iPhone for 2018

Apple Rumored to Be Readying a New Budget-Friendly iPhone for 2018

The current generation iPhone SE has been particularly popular in emerging markets like India, where consumers like Apple's premium branding, but likely don't have the money to drop $800 to $1,000 on a flagship iPhone.

Apple's wallet-friendly iPhone SE (wallet-friendly by Apple standards, that is) could make a return to stores according to a report from the Economic Daily News in China.

The iPhone SE is meant to cater to the needs of the budget smartphone hunters who want to use an iPhone. Earlier reports claimed that the iPhone SE sequel will start shipping in Q1 2018 and will be manufactured by Wistron, which is the same company that assembles the iPhone SE in India. Though it looks like a relic next to the X, it might not be the last LCD iPhone that Apple ever releases. As such, Apple has taken a bit of a gamble with its iPhone X, which marks the company's foray into face recognition technology. The latest rumours claim that the iPhone SE 2 will launch in the first three months of 2018 which is what rumours prior to this mentioned.

What are your thoughts on a new iPhone SE? The upcoming iPhone is also expected to feature standard 3.5 mm headphone jack, so, one can expect decent quality earphones inside the retail package. It will retain the same four inch display, say sources.

Unfortunately, there is no indication on if the iPhone SE will receive a refreshed or all-new exterior design to go along with its upgraded internals. It is also reported that it will come with a price tag of $450.
