Mysterious new Apple IDs hint at an iPhone SE 2 release in May
by Daniel Petrov / Apr 19, 2018, 3:08 AM
Such new identifiers usually land in said database about a month before the actual announcement, as it happened with the HomePod, or Apple's new iPad, and it's not out of the question that we might be seeing a minor upgrade of the iPhone SE internals in the same housing package soon. The chipset is long overdue for an upgrade, as are the camera and storage memory amount; after all, the SE was launched full two years ago.
There are eleven brand new iPhone identifiers unearthed in total - A1920, A1921, A1984, A2097, A2098, A2099, A2101, A2103, A2104, A2105, and A2106 - which hints at different colors and memory amounts, but it's too early in the 2018 game for those to be of the upcoming iPhone 9, Xs and Xs Plus. Thus, we can wait with bated breath Apple to release something in the next month or so.
If an eventual iPhone SE 2 is a small upgrade, it likely won't be taking center stage at the WWDC conference starting on June 4th, so if an upgraded version of Apple's most affordable handset is around the corner, you are probably going to read about it in a press release issued during the second half of May.

I'm excited for the SE 2. I hope they implement touch id 2nd gen if face ID wont get the cut.

If it has that same pathetic sub HD resolution display. Then they can keep it.

Never used an Apple product personally, but whenever I handle this model in the mall, it feels nice in the hand.

The SE is much faster than the majority of Android phones, including some Samsung flagships. And you don't need to have deep pockets to get one. An SE with A10 fusion like the 7 would really make it a very tempting device.

I love my SE but would be nice if they could keep similar form factor while increasing the screen size! That's what the "X" should have been in my opinion, making it have a bigger screen but being bigger than the 6/7/8 didn't really make the most of the benefit...

Writing this from my SE. I just love this phone. I’ll welcome an upgrade!! I only use this phone for work but the fact it fits anywhere and is a very productive makes this the best purchase I made last year. $150 for the win.
