Rumor: Apple To Launch 4.8-Inch OLED iPhone XE In Q3 2019 With A12, Face ID, And Single-Lens 12MP Camera

Since this year, we haven't heard anything about the iPhone SE 2, but just when we thought Apple may ditch the project, PC-Tablet learned from India's Foxconn manufacturing facility that the iPhone SE 2 is still alive, but renamed to iPhone XE, and will be launched in the third quarter of this year, starting at $600.

The iPhone XE will use a 4.8-inch OLED notch display design. The iPhone XE will continue to retain the aluminum back, which mean it will not support wireless charging. And since it's a notch screen, we should expect it to have Face ID support. Interestingly, they believe that iPhone XE will come in with a 12-megapixel (single-lens) rear camera and a 7MP front-facing camera.

Internal wise, the iPhone XE will be featured with A12 Bionic processor, and possibly ships with 4GB of RAM, a storage capacity of 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB. The report, however, doesn't provide much info about battery life, waterproof, etc. But the chances are that iPhone XE will support Animoji.

The only part that seems unreal to us is the price, consider that even iPhone XR with an LCD screen cost $749, sure you can argue that it's a much small screen compared XR's 6.1-inch, but with OLED, I don't believe so. Anyhow, as for release date, PC-Tablet suggest that the launch could likely to take place in Q3 of 2019, hinting that we could potentially see such device on Apple's annual fall event.
