After iPhone SE, Apple launched a host of new iPhones including iPhone 7, iPhone Plus, iPhone 8, iPhone Plus and iPhone X, but none of them were targeted for the budget users.

Also as per the images, the iPhone SE 2 is expected to come with a redesigned back panel with the brand logo near the bottom.

The lack of demand for Apple's premium iPhone model can be seen in the earnings reports of some its suppliers.

Apple also launched the PRODUCT RED iPhone 7 and 7 Plus past year, but they arrived with a white front. So, if an updated iPhone SE is in development, what new features could we expect?

After releasing iPhone SE in March 2016, Apple has rightly able to tap the mid-range smartphone segment which was earlier dominated by the likes of Samsung and Sony.

Apple's iPhone SE was probably one of the company's last smartphones that would comfortably fit in the palm of your hands. Strangely past reports claim that the SE2 would follow in the footsteps of older iPhone models and ditch the headphone jack entirely. With outdated internals inside (if you call an A10 outdated that is), a higher resolution display with better storage variants could certainly help Apple gain more ground, especially if it's made in India and is priced lower. To recall, both the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are built around Apple's custom-made A11 Bionic chipset that is controlled by iOS 11. Citi analysts believe Apple will sell 14 million iPhone X units in calendar Q2 and just 7 million in calendar Q3.

But if what's shown in the leak is the actual iPhone SE 2 then it seems the model would have a glass back and would rumoredly feature the wireless charging.

The iPhone SE 2 could launch with a not-so-different design which will be quite similar to the iPhone SE and may not feature a radically different iPhone X-ish design.

Apple iPhone 8 features a 4.7 inch Retina HD (1334 x 750 pixels) Wide screen IPS True Tone Display. But it's disappointing to see a reduction in iPhone X production. Assuming Cybart's estimate that Apple sold 27 million iPhone X's in the final quarter of 2017, Apple would have to sell 33 million more units of the X in calendar Q1-Q3 to hit the 60 million mark. India prices for the Apple Watch Series Cellular have not been announced yet.

The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus Product RED editions are launched as part of a global partnership with (PRODUCT) RED, which is a group formed to combat HIV/AIDS in Africa.
