If you like small phones, there might be an upgrade coming next year.
Apple has been working to establish an iPhone production base with partner manufacturer Wistron in Bangalore. That confusion was part of a complex bid with the government to establish an Apple Store in India, but that’s is something completely different.
But the main rumour roaming around that factory was that the tech giant would be introducing the next-gen of the iPhone SE, the four-inch iPhone from 2016 with close-to-flagship features.
Report from the Economic Daily suggests that Wistron is looking for a piece of land to expand operations and supply chain to support an upgraded iPhone SE. According to the EDN reports from foreign sources, the handset may feature Touch ID and launched in the first half of the next year with a price tag of $450.
Wistron has observed an increase in business with the tech giant. Infinite Loop has been working with its main contract assembler, Foxconn, with developing high-end iPhone X and iPhone 8 Plus units while Wistron has begun to separate their way from older, lower-end iPhones, assembling together iPhone SE and iPhone 8 units across its Chinese and Indian plants.
