That phone was created to cater to fans of smaller displays and who want a less-expensive iPhone, especially consumers in emerging markets who can't afford Apple's more premium devices.

The suggested first quarter launch date of the iPhone SE 2 goes in line with that of the original model.

KitGuru Says: The iPhone SE has remained surprisingly popular, so there is a market for an upgraded version.

Apple iPhone SE 2 could launch in early 2018, according to a new report. Currently, the iPhone SE selling in India are being assembled at the same factory.

The iPhone SE has a 4-inch screen, much smaller than the 4.7-inch display on the iPhone 7 and iPhone 8. The fact that the original iPhone SE found many takers is prove enough that people still like small screen smartphones.

Economic Daily News, which regularly reports on Apple's supply chain partners, claims Tim Cook and co have inked a deal with manufacturer Wistron to make the device in India. The iPhone SE, which was launched in March 2016 is now becoming a little old in the tooth.

Rumors about the iPhone SE 2 have been going around for months, but Apple made no mention of such device in the company's recent keynote events.

The phone is said to be manufactured in India but will still be sold worldwide. Also, it is tipped that the iPhone SE 2 might be priced starting from $450.

To recall, the iPhone SE is powered by a 64-bit A9 chipset, faster GPU, and M9 motion coprocessor for Always-On 'Hey Siri.' The iPhone SE has received massive improvements in comparison to the 2013 "5S model".
