Apple registers iPhone SE 2 in Europe
A newly leaked document from Eurasian Economic Commission’s points towards the release of new smartphone models by Apple.
For the uninitiated, a previous EEC leak successfully predicted the launch of the new 9.7-inch iPad (2018) model.
The latest report contains references to eleven models – A1920, A1921, A1984, A2097, A2098, A2099, A2101, A2103, A2104, A2105, A2106.
Apparently, all these devices will come with iOS 11, Apple’s latest operating system.
The aforementioned model numbers are actually codenames for iPhone and iPad devices.
However, this doesn’t mean Apple will launch twelve new devices, rather there will be various models of the same smartphone with different colors or features.
When can you expect the iPhone SE 2?
EEC has already authorized these new devices for sale in Russia, Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, and Kyrgyzstan. Other countries should, hopefully, follow suit very soon.
The timing of this leak suggests that Apple will launch iPhone SE 2 before iOS 12 is released.
Since the only upcoming event before the main September event is WWDC, Apple could use it as a launchpad for its budget iPhone.
If older rumors are anything to go by, Apple will stick to the tried-and-true design of the older model. As far as features go, users who are expecting a significant hardware upgrade will be left disappointed.
iPhone SE 2, should Apple decide to release it, will look nothing like those futuristic concepts.
High-end features like Face ID, A11 Bionic processor, and wireless charging are ruled out.
