AppleInsider reports that according to CNA, Apple supply chain member Wistron is to add a new iPhone SE production line to its plant in Bengaluru, India, in order to produce the Gen-2 iPhone SE ready for shipping in the first quarter of 2018. The source says that Wistron is already in talks with the Karnataka state government in a bid to secure extra land for the development, in the hope of doubling or tripling production capacity within the next 5 years.
The Wistron-manufactured iPhone SE model is thought to be only intended for release in India, so most likely another of Apple’s manufacturing partners, such as Foxconn or Pegatron, will be manufacturing the Gen-2 iPhone SE for other markets.
As far as specs for the new SE are concerned, Indian website Tekz24 recently wrote that the 2018 SE will have the same A10 processor and 12-megapixel rear camera as the iPhone 7, plus 2GB of RAM and a 5-megapixel front camera. Tekz24 said that the display would be between 4 and 4.2 inches.
