We have heard plenty of rumors surrounding the iPhone SE 2 so far. Apple is expected to launch an upgrade to the 4-inch phone later this year with upgraded internals, wireless charging, and a better camera. A new report from DigiTimes analyst claims that the iPhone SE 2 will enter into mass production in Q2 of this year.

The handset will then reportedly launch in May or June of this year. Apple has unveiled the original iPhone SE at a separate event held in March in 2016. Give the May or June timeframe, it is possible that we will Apple unveil the iPhone SE 2 at WWDC this year. While the company has avoided launching new hardware at WWDC over the recent years, it did show off its Siri-powered HomePod smart speaker at last year’s WWDC.

While Apple continues to sell millions of iPhone SE units across the world, the handset now does not occupy an important position in the company’s lineup anymore. Thus, it is possible that Apple would end up unveiling the iPhone SE 2 at WWDC this year.

Apple is not expected to make major changes to iPhone SE 2 in terms of design. While the handset will retain the same design language, it will come with a glass back at the rear to facilitate wireless charging. Sadly, it will not come with a notch display design at the front or Face ID as seen on the iPhone X.
