Apple may be preparing to launch their next-gen ‘iPhone SE’ soon

“French website Consomac has discovered a new Russian-language regulatory filing in the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) database pointing towards several unreleased iPhone models that Apple could be launching relatively soon,” Tim Hardwick reports for MacRumors. “None of the numbers correspond to Apple’s existing smartphone lineup.”

“Apple is rumored to be introducing three flagship iPhones in 2018: Two OLED models measuring in at 5.8 and 6.5 inches and a 6.1-inch lower-cost LCD model. All three will feature Face ID and edge-to-edge displays, but none are expected to arrive before the usual September timeframe when Apple’s major annual iPhone event typically takes place,” Hardwick reports. “However, rumors suggest Apple will bring a new entry-level smartphone model to market similar to the iPhone SE that will support wireless charging and be released in time for summer 2018.”

Hardwick reports, “A May/June launch would put it within touching distance of Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference, which starts on June 4, although Apple hasn’t launched an iPhone at WWDC in the last seven years, the last announcement being the iPhone 4 in 2010.”

MacDailyNews Note: The original iPhone SE launched on March 31, 2016 with two storage capacities: 16GB and 64GB, priced at $399 and $499 respectively. On March 21, 2017, iPhone SE’s storage capacities were bumped up to 32GB and 128GB at the same price points.


  1. I love the palm sized communication tool. I do not care about the enclosure design (the current SE box is just fine), do not need ridiculous OLED screen for small gadget like smartphones, but update the guts, 64Gb min. storage, and perhaps with cordless charging. Maybe an edge to edge screen with less bezel area if the touch ID could be embedded underneath the screen (if not possible, still totally fine). The best business tool. My current 8 will be given away to my daughter. Crazy? Yes, I am! I learned to love smaller sized phone, being tossed around, and into my shirt pocket…

    1. I am very happy with my 64GB SE, that i bought as soon as they came out unlocked from Apple. I hated the 6s size that i had before for a few months, and the 6s uncomfortable size made me miss my 4s. With the SE i had the best of both worlds. I hope Apple dont mess with the SE 2 too much, just bump the internal specs (better processor and camera) and nothing else. Please keep the headphone jack Apple.

  2. Love my SE – it fits in all my pockets, has useful square sides for video, and a speedy chip for speed.

    For the next one, just upgrade the components please, not forgetting the vital cam and vid functions.
