Keep your expectations low for an iPhone SE 2 arriving this year. It turns out that, despite multiple reports saying a smaller iPhone would come sooner rather than later, the company isn’t quite ready to launch anything of that nature. Apple will instead choose to focus its resources on a trio of high-end iPhone models debuting in the second half of 2018.
Introducing a fourth iPhone model at the end of the year wouldn’t be easy considering how the iPhone X’s release went, according to KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.
Apple couldn’t release its most advanced iPhone ever alongside the iPhone 8 in 2017. Creating three new models at the same time proved to be difficult even for Apple, and the company was forced to release the iPhone X two months after the iPhone 8 hit the market. Between different designs and components assigned to each, the company couldn’t release them simultaneously.
In 2018, Kuo is skeptical that Apple would be able to add another iPhone to its lineup without significant delays for some or all of the models. So it’s believed that Apple will continue working on new models with 5.8-, 6.1-, and 6.5-inch displays while the new iPhone SE waits until 2019.
When the iPhone SE 2 eventually gets released (assuming it does), expect it to have watered-down specifications compared to its siblings. The smaller, more affordable iPhone would have a tweaked design, an upgraded processor, and wireless charging.
It’s a positive sign for fans of the original iPhone SE that the analyst doesn’t say the iPhone SE 2 has been canceled. The report is more of an indication that, although delayed, the product is still in the works.
