When we all thought the iPhone SE 2 was dead, a new rumor put it back on the map with a name change included. According to information coming from India, Apple is preparing a successor to its small phone that would be called iPhone XE and would have a 4.8-inch screen.
Rumors about a renewal of the iPhone SE have been very constant but after the launch of the iPhone XS and XR the possibilities decreased. Now the rumor is getting stronger and the successor, called the iPhone XE, would be a small version of the iPhone XR .
The sources consulted by the PC-Tablet blog come from the Foxconn factory in India , however they would not be the ones to manufacture it. It is said that Wiston, another Apple manufacturing partner, will be in charge of the new iPhone XE.
According to the information you have obtained, this is what you know about the iPhone XE :
- Screen up to the edges following the design line of iPhone X, the name makes a lot of sense.
- 4.8 inch OLED screen.
- Face ID and notch.
- A single 12 MP camera.
- Straight aluminum design like the iPhone SE, so no wireless charging.
- No information about the processor, but when you have Face ID it will be either the A11 or the A12 Bionic.
- Price over $600.
This is a rumour that must be analysed in depth, this medium has no history of leaks so for the moment it is a rumour with a low probability of becoming real. We spent many months talking about this supposed iPhone of which we came to see cases and schemes and in the end it did not appear, perhaps Apple has only delayed it.
This report claims that this iPhone XE could replace the iPhone XR and the 2019 iPhone range could be iPhone XE, iPhone XI and iPhone XI Max . We will see if other sources support this rumor.
