iPhone SE holds a 4 inches display screen with 640 x 1136 resolution, 2GB RAM, and non-expandable 16GB internal storage. The phone houses a 12MP primary camera and 1.2MP selfie shooter.
According to the latest rumor, Apple is working on to launch the new version of iPhone SE in 2018. It is likely to get unwrapped in August 2018. This would really be great news for Apple fans as it has decided to come up with lower price tag.
As we all know there has been no up gradation for this gadget since its launch, thus it is expected a new launch of the same product with some exciting add-on features. Apple is even concentrating to fill in the loopholes of its earlier version. This new version is planned to be manufactured by Taiwan-based contract electronics maker.
Recent reports even suggest that Apple is enjoying around 10 percent exemption in customs duty thus ensuring the price of gadget to be more competitive than usual.
This rumor raised against the one that was spread by Pan Jiutang, Chinese analyst that Apple has no plans to refresh iPhone SE. He even added a comment that Apple is no longer looking for up gradation as people now tend to prefer larger devices which are in trend.
