The iPhone X is out of reach (or at least a less than perfectly reasonable purchase) for a lot of people, as it can be hard to justify buying a $1,000 phone that you’ll want to replace in a year or two anyway. The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are hardly cheap either. What if you want a new, yet affordable iPhone? You just might be in luck as the iPhone SE2 is rumored to launch later this year.

As you might remember, the first-generation iPhone SE launched in spring 2016, alongside the 9.7-inch iPad Pro and iOS 9.3. This “entry level” iPhone was meant to be a cheaper alternative to the flagship iPhone series.

The outside looked a lot more like the iPhone 5, while the inside boasted guts more similar to the iPhone 6S. There’s the Apple A9 processor, 12MP camera, and improved LTE and Wi-Fi speeds in a package that starts at $399. It’s no top-tier device, but it certainly had its audience.

Apple skipped over the iPhone SE last year, but it looks like it could be making a comeback in 2018 as the iPhone SE2. Or the iPhone SE 2. Or whatever else they choose to call it. According to the latest rumors, the iPhone SE2 will retain the 4-inch display size of its predecessor and will likely get internals similar to that of an iPhone 7.


Whether they’ll be able to hit the $399 price point again (and whether they’ll stick with the 16GB entry point) remains to be seen, but at least they won’t slow down its performance for a year or two. Of course, we’re also expected successors to the iPhone 8 and iPhone X this year too, probably with improved Face ID and more memory. There may also be an iPhone X Plus (or iPhone X2 Plus?) with a 6.5-inch OLED.
