Apple's iPhone SE sequel reportedly won't be a big revamp

Apple's iPhone SE sequel reportedly won't be a big revamp

Top analyst Ming-Chi Kuo reckons we'll see three new Apple smartphones, one of which will feature a staggeringly large 6.5-inch screen. The report also notes that Apple will maintain the total production target of 30 million for the other iPhones it now sells, including the new iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, but also older iPhone models.

But the two headline devices are the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Plus models. If Apple does in fact launch a second-generation iPhone SE, Kuo doesn't think it will have too many outward changes compared to the current model.

While sales of the iPhone X have been strong in the USA, the device has reportedly failed to catch on as much globally.

Building on a report from December, Kuo revealed that Apple has a total of three new iPhones up its sleeve for 2018: a 5.8-inch OLED iPhone X, a 6.5-inch OLED iPhone X Plus and a 6.1-inch Full Active LCD iPhone that's equipped with Animoji, Face ID and ultra-thin 0.5mm bezels.

Pricing on this year's iPhone X would seem lower than what it was previously because of the iPhone X Plus possibly releasing, but that doesn't seem to be the case.




When Apple launched the iPhone SE in 2016, it was notable for including the same processor as the iPhone 6S, contactless payments through Apple Pay and a better rear camera in the same design of the iPhone 5S. Typically, Q4 is a very good quarter for iPhone sales.

The latter is said to feature a massive 6.5-inch screen, which is almost two inches bigger than the 4.7-inch display seen on last year's iPhone 8.

The company's latest phone was released to the market in November for $999. This could also slow the shift by display manufacturers from LCD to OLED technology.

Nikkei makes their headline dramatic "Apple to halve iPhone X production in Q1".

Apple will be holding their financial conference call this Thursday and until then are under a legally required "quite period" at this time.
