New iPhone SE May Launch in Early 2018

Apple could start shipping an updated version of the fourth-inch iPhone SE, its most affordable smartphone, in the first quarter of 2018, according to a new rumor Friday from Focus Taiwan.

The phone should look like its predecessor and have the A10 chip, a display measuring between four and 4.2 inches, 32GB and 128GB storage options and a 1,700mAh battery.

Wistron manufactured the original iPhone SE in a planet in Bangalore, and it sounds like the same plant will be used to build the new model of the small iPhone. The sources added that they believe Apple will be targeting India as the first and primary launch site for the new iPhone SE. From there, the new smartphone will expand globally.
“Taiwan-based contract electronics maker Wistron Corp. is preparing for expansion of its production base in India to produce the next-generation smaller iPhone — the iPhone SE — according to sources in the South Asian country. According to the sources, Wistron is expected to start to ship the new iPhone SE — which is expected to be more affordable than larger iPhones for many Indian consumers — in the first quarter of next year.They said that Wistron is in talks with the Karnataka government for an extra piece of land for its production expansion, hoping it will double or even triple its production capacity over the next five years.”
 Apple is also said to be positioning the new iPhone SE as a cheaper option for new customers, but there’s no word on how much it would cost if it does indeed launch.

Among the prerequisites Apple itself submitted to the local government: duty exemption on raw materials for manufacturing components and capital equipment for 15 years.
