Currently, the iPhone SE selling in India are being assembled at the same factory.

A new report published by a Chinese daily on Wednesday stated that Apple is likely to launch a new lower-priced iPhone during the first half of the upcoming year.

There isn't much information available out there but it's speculated the smartphone will still flaunt 4-inch screen and will be manufactured by Wistron in India.

The iPhone SE is meant to cater to the needs of the budget smartphone hunters who want to use an iPhone.

There was scepticism when Apple released a small screen smartphone called iPhone SE in 2016 as consumers seemed to be going insane after big-screen phones and most original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) went with the trend but reality turned out to be different. This device will be made for the countries like China and India, where there is a huge market for the premium smartphones, with a price tag less than $400 (₹24,000).

Although the iPhone SE hasn't been refreshed since its 2016 launch, Apple did double the storage of the devices to 64GB and 128GB in March of this year. The latest rumours claim that the iPhone SE 2 will launch in the first three months of 2018 which is what rumours prior to this mentioned. So, it won't be surprising if the new iPhone SE 2 does well. Previous reports surrounding the smartphone suggested that the device could come with a fairly modest update, featuring a faster chip.

The iPhone SE 2 is expected to stick with a 4-inch display. Now, it looks like we can expect an iPhone SE 2 in the not too distant future.
