Apple plans to debut the iPhone SE (2018) with TrueDepth camera alongside flagship models in September 2018.
Apple will be launching three iPhones this year. Yesterday renders of the low priced Apple iPhone SE (2018) were released by accessories maker Olixar and posted on Mobile Fun’s website. Today more news about the smartphone has surfaced. According to several accessories maker who is exhibiting their wares at Japan IT Week Spring Mobile Solutions Expo, the company hasn’t started production of the iPhone SE (2018) which indicates we won’t be seeing the device until the second quarter of this year.
According to a report from Macotakra claims the Apple is still yet to decide whether to include a TrueDepth Camera, a top-notch, an edge-to-edge display and Face ID or not. Previous rumours and renders seemed to be pretty sure the device will feature these. Apple can take design inspiration from the Apple iPhone 5S or just include a 6-inch display. Whatever it may be, the iPhone SE (2018) will likely to feature a glass back to support Wireless charging feature. A leak from Weibo claims to offers 18 watts, charging an iPhone from 0 to 50 percent in half an hour and 80 percent in an hour.
One of the glass manufacturers claims that Apple will pick from three different types of glass for the smartphone. The device will have a physical cutout instead of using an ink mask. There also seemed to be no cutout for Touch ID which hints to the Face ID feature. An image showing such a display panel was spotted by Ben Geskin in Chinese media platform Weibo last week. From other rumours, the iPhone SE (2018) will feature upgraded internals, similar to the iPhone 7 like the A10 Fusion chipset. However, we are not sure if it will come with a feature like dual cameras, 3D touch or a 3.5 mm headphone jack.
The report further claims that the iPhone SE (2018) will be unveiled this year in September alongside the Apple iPhone Xs, Apple iPhone Xs Plus and Apple iPhone 9.
