I don't know why, the people who recently brought up iPhone SE began to grow up. Not long ago, there were two designers who made the concept for the follow-up products of iPhone SE, and took us to imagine the second generation of iPhone SE in their minds.
But it's not surprising to think about it. On the one hand, the arrival of iPhone X provides designers with more new design inspiration; on the other hand, iPhone SE has been on sale for almost two years, and it remains stubbornly on Apple's official website. Whether it is to launch the next generation of products, or simply let it quit the stage of history, the apple also seems to give us a zhunxin.
Designers in the minds of the next generation of iPhone SE is very wonderful, it is either a smaller version of iPhone X, the new style or have a cool fashion. In general, is to highlight a compact slim. In the eyes of many people, iPhone SE is a dream belongs to the past, highlights is the small body slender. The 4 inch screen seems to lack a sense of shock for people who love big screens today. It's perfect if you can make the screen bigger by full screen processing.
Perhaps these imagination is not realistic, but after all, the designer's work is unconstrained. For most of our ordinary consumers, the most important question is, does iPhone SE have the next generation? If so, what would it look like?
Looking at all the past signs, Apple needs iPhone SE. In the last earnings report, Cook said that iPhone SE is an important tool to help Apple enter an emerging market like India. Apple is now eager to open up new markets, it certainly needs some cheap equipment as a means, rather than the expensive flagship equipment. The existence of iPhone SE is necessary. In the era of massive growth of Apple's service business, the more iOS devices sell, the more favorable apple is.
And then again, Apple's iPhone SE has been able to tap into the emerging market, the most fundamental reason is cheap strategy. Being able to experience Apple's mature ecology at a lower cost is a tempting thing for many people. So if iPhone SE has the next generation, then "cheap" is certainly one of the qualities that it wants to stick to.
So from this idea to consider it, which means that iPhone SE's successor will not have so many cool new features in our fantasy. Of course, the OLED screen is the game, after all, the limited capacity of the panel. The best we can expect is just stronger performance. Considering that the performance of iPhone 7 is very strong, Apple may consider giving a new generation of iPhone SE equipped with A10 Fusion, on the one hand, it also consumes inventory. The only thing worth discussing is whether Apple will be equipped with the original deep camera for the new iPhone SE, to achieve facial recognition. However, considering that the face ID and Touch ID belong to the same framework in the code available for developers, even if Apple continues to let iPhone SE use Touch ID, it doesn't have any impact on compatibility.
Maybe a new iPhone SE that doesn't change much will disappoint us, but after all, its target audience has changed.
