Analyst predicts the end for Apple iPhone SE
Apple may not refresh its iPhone SE line as it prepares to focus on bigger displays
Apple's iPhone SE series will not be refreshed this year or ever again, according to analyst Pan Jiutang.
Jiutang predicts that the smartphone with the smaller screen will not make a comeback as Apple prepares to focus on bigger displays.
At the time of the iPhone SE release, the 4-inch device was notably smaller than current trends. However Apple decided instead of increasing the size it would cater for Apple fans who desired a smaller handset but also benefit from the latest hardware features.
Despite its success when first released in 2016, Jiutang states that the phone is a one off and Apple fans looking for a 4-inch smartphone to buy the old iPhone SE or iPhone 5C.
He said: "So nostalgic and like a small screen, buy an iPhone SE or millet 5C it. The future of Andrews brand manufacturers of new machines, should not be less than 5.5 inches, and love the size of that crazy SE will not have a newer version."
Apple appears to be focussing on bezel-less smartphones, meaning the display and size will be 5.5-inches and above. However the only smaller smartphone series that will be released this year, will be the iPhone 7S, standing at 4.7-inches.
