American tech company Apple plans to unveil a second-generation iPhone SE, as reported by international business newspaper, Economic Daily News.

According to the report, iPhone SE2 will be produced by Taiwanese manufacturer Wistron in its factory in India, where the current budget SE iPhone is being assembled. 

The rumored iPhone SE2 is believed to be an update of a 4-inch SE, the miniature handheld device that was previously released by Apple in March 2016. The report claims that the new model will feature the same components.

Although Apple has not released an official statement yet, their next-generation is expected to be powered by Apple’s A10 Fusion chip, with 128 GB and 32GB storage capacities. It will also feature 2GB RAM, a five-megapixel selfie camera, 12-megapixel back camera, and 1,700 mAh battery.

The original iPhone that was launched in 2007 comes with a hefty 3.5-inch display. When iPhone 5 was released on the market in 2012, the display increased to a 4-inch diagonal. Steve Jobs, who was Apple’s founder, had once expressed that a phone should be used using only one hand. However, when Jobs was gone, the company started making the phones significantly larger.

The foreign report also notes that the new iPhone SE2 may be equipped with a Touch ID fingerprint recognition capabilities.
