The iPhone SE was launched in March of last year and is now at the bottom of the company’s models.

Thankfully though, Apple has not forgotten the smallest of its smartphones and is preparing a refresh of the model.

According to the latest rumor, the new iPhone SE will hit the streets in the first quarter of next year (before the end of March), nearly two years after its predecessor, GSM Arena reported.

The revamped model is said to keep the affordability of the original, but add the A10 chipset from the iPhone 7 to the mix. The screen size should be in the 4” to 4.2” neighborhood, while storage options will be 32 GB and 128 GB.

The handset will naturally launch running iOS 11. It will feature a 1,700-mAh battery, ever so slightly larger than the 1,624-mAh cell of the first SE.

The new iPhone SE will be made in India by Wistron, a Taiwan-based contract electronics maker.

That company is already assembling the first generation model in the subcontinent since May and will add a new production line for the next generation device.

The new phone will launch in India first, interestingly, spreading to other places at some later point.

The cheapest iPhone SE 16 GB model in the Iranian market currently retails for 12.7 million rials, according to price comparison website
