iPhone SE 2 might have glass back panel, headphone jack
According to reports, Apple's iPhone SE 2 will sport a glass back panel and a headphone jack. This comes as latest rumors and leaks showcase the first images and even a video of a fully built alleged iPhone SE 2. The device is expected to launch either in May or at Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) 2018 in June.
According to the leaked images, the iPhone SE 2 will have a glossy back panel instead of an aluminum one (like in iPhone SE), indicating that it could be glass to support wireless charging like in the iPhone X. Further, the presence of a 3.5mm headphone jack is more surprising as that is something Apple has done away with in its devices long ago.
The iPhone SE 2 will look similar to its predecessor iPhone SE. In the leaks, it sports a similar Touch ID, display, front camera setup, and bezels. Other rumors suggest the phone will feature a 4.2-inch display, 2GB RAM, 32GB/128GB inbuilt storage, home button, and water resistance capabilities. It might be powered by iPhone 7's A10 Fusion processor instead of the earlier A9 chipset.
However, according to reputed Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, there is a good possibility that the iPhone SE is not coming at all, at least not in the next couple of months. He said that it is "unlikely" for Apple to launch the device this quarter.
The iPhone SE was launched in 2016 and was based on iPhone 5 (2012). It aimed at providing a comparatively affordable iPhone to markets like India. In fact, it was manufactured in India last year. The iPhone SE 2 is also expected to be made in India to let Apple avoid tariffs and sell it at a lower price, speculated to be Rs. 23,000.
