Apple is planning to launch a second generation iPhone SE this year, according to a new report from TrendForce.

In order to meet the demand in different ranges of market, Apple will launch the second generation of iPhone SE which targets at the mid-range segment. Therefore, Apple will continue to expand its iPhone production in 2018, and the volume is estimated to register a 7.5% growth.

TrendForce also expects Apple to improve its Face ID technology and use OLED displays for two new iPhone models this year.

IPhone X sparked a heated discussion in 2017, but iPhone's production volume increased by only 3% over 2016 due to the technical barriers in improving yield rate of innovative models. With regard to the supply chain, new iPhones in 2018 will continue to improve Face ID technology, screen to body ratio, etc., moreover, the company plans to increase the memory content and embed AMOLED display in two of its models.

It's unclear if Apple will update the iPhone SE with an iPhone X style design but check out this concept to visualize what that might look like!

These "cheap af replacements" are low to give a leg up to users that are affecting the battery themselves which is why battery gate happened and I'm not one of them because I was lucky to stumble upon articles about charging mistakes! The more you know LAWLAWLAWLAWLAWLAWLAWLAWLAWLAWLAWLAWLAWLAWLAWLAWL!!!!!

If it looks like the X and does what the X does without leaving something out like 3D Touch then I’m selling my X and getting it. I love the size of the 5s

This concept looks better than the iPhone X.

Would be nice to have a larger screen in a iPhone 5 body... But it has to have a headphone jack as well!

Will it be renamed the iPhone SEx ??

Considering that we have the smallest iPhone X available (when you think of how we have the 6 and 6 plus sizes), I doubt it because this image is another one of those lame old concepts.

For a second generation apple product, there is no way it could looks drastically different from the previous generation (besides the Mac Pro which has plenty of reasons the 2013 version a lot different), but unless it were to look like this, then it could have to be X SE.

Definitely will purchase if the next SE iteration resembles the concept above.
