Results: would you like to see a new iPhone SE?
Well, WWDC's opening keynote is behind us and, just as we suspected, the iPhone SE line didn't see a refresh. While this doesn't mean that the device is dead for sure, the industry's love for larger displays makes the SE's future much more ambiguous. Especially with today's tech being able to cram huge screens into relatively tiny bodies, we can't be 100% certain that we will see another incarnation of Apple's super-pocketable handset in the future.

But then again, the iPhone SE was sort of designed for the slow upgraders — the people who don't mind sticking with older tech as long as it's small, easy to lug around, and fits the ton of accessories they've already bought for it. Such a target audience can definitely live with a 2-year upgrade cycle and, what's even more, they are not really prone to upgrade to an SE 2 as soon as it lands.

Still, with the rumored drastic changes to the iPhone's design language, the form-factor that was first introduced with the iPhone 5 may actually finally die. That doesn't mean the next SE can't still be some sort of super-small iPhone, does it? We thought we'd ask you whether you'd like to see such a compact device, here are the poll results!

Apple tried to pawn the iPhone SE as a mid range device. However when I see other mid range or low end devices from different OEMs in 2017, and what they are offering at lower prices, or the same price, but offer a lot more. Then Apple is clearly relying on that sales motto "a sucker is born every minute". Also I have never seen so many BOGO deals lately. Buy an iPhone 7 or 7 plus and we will give you a free iPhone SE. If Apples iPhone's are so good and sell really well. Then there wouldn't be any need to give a free iPhone SE away.

Not a single manufacturer offers smartphones THAT small and having decent specs. They all seem to rely on "the smaller - the cheaper". Try to find a smartphone with 2 simple parameters: width less than 60 something mm, fingerprint scanner on the front.

That's exactly what I want. I don't want to carry a tablet in my pocket. Too bad all of the dimwits who manufacturer androids don't seem to grasp this concept.

BLU actually makes one in one of these old iPhone 5-sized bodies. I was excited when I saw it. Unfortunately it's only a 3G phone. I assume it's because the battery is absolutely miniscule.

It's nice for a backup phone if your main iPhone dies, but not for a daily driver, that thing's waaaay too small.

A bit bigger body 4.7" screen with minimal bezels would be nice.

While I personally don't want a small device, I know a ton of people who do and don't want one that is cheap with shabby build qaulity. I think it's important to the public to keep the SE going. But if it isn't important to Apples pockets we all know they won't even if people want it.

There have been a number of deals that are still going on. Buy a new iPhone 7 or 7 plus and get a free iPhone SE. If the SE is selling well. Then why are we seeing these deals? Clearly they are not selling well, or else they would not be trying to pawn them off on other deals. The iPhone SE is really a iPhone 5S with newer internal specs (A9, with 2 the of ram).

I'm surprised there hasn't been an update to the SE. Bearing in mind it's got an iphone 6 inside, they are getting a bit old now. Those people with an SE will still be wanting to upgrade and we know that they won't be going for a larger 7/7 Plus size upgrade. Maybe September?
