Apple is expected to launch a successor to the popular iPhone SE later this year. And now nearly three years later, the Cupertino-based tech giant appears to be preparing an iPhone SE successor, which could be called iPhone SE 2.
To recall, Apple supplier Wistron initially assembled the iPhone SE (an older model, the production of which has now been discontinued) in India and is now assembling the iPhone 6S and iPhone 7 at its Bengaluru facility. Hopefully, this could mean a better battery but perhaps it is thicker to accommodate a frosted glass back like the current iPhone 11.

Washington accused the group of an attack on an Iraqi military base that killed an American contractor. Soleimani's remains arrived in the southwestern city of Ahvaz, Iran , from Iraq on Sunday.
There is nothing confirmed about Apple iPhone SE 2 from official sources but is expected to arrive in the first quarter of 2020. "There is also a lot of speculation about iPhone SE2 coming this year", Tarun Pathak, Associate Director at Counterpoint Research, was quoted by IANS. Earlier it was reported that iPhone SE 2 is likely to offer up to 3 GB RAM. It can surely can't be named iPhone 12, as this is a budgeted device and may have lesser features than iPhone 11 or iPhone X. This time we see iPhone 9 video renderings rather than static images. Apple's video using fire and ice, iPhone 11 Pro's camera can reveal what it can do.
If you recall, the iPhone SE at the time of launch was a relatively new flagship device that's packed in a compact and familiar form factor. Apple is expected to do the same thing in principle this time around by taking a 2.5-year old iPhone - in this case, the iPhone 8 - and updating it to the A13 CPU that's now found in Apple's iPhone 11 lineup.
However, don't expect to see 2x lossless optical zoom or an ultra-wide camera on this iPhone.
