Apple may be working on a second-generation iPhone SE after all. A new filing by the company with the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC), a Russian-language regulatory organisation, reveals a list of new unreleased iPhone models, including the highly rumoured iPhone SE 2.

According to French website Consomac, a new Russian-language regulatory filing in the EEC database has emerged that gives details of several unreleased iPhones that the tech giant could be launching soon.

"The EEC filing satisfies Russia's requirement for companies to register all products containing encryption and/or cryptographic tools.

"On February 19, the EEC revealed the existence of two new iPads which proved to be the Wi-Fi and cellular versions of Apple's 9.7-inch iPad unveiled on March 27, so there's a chance the new models identify iPhones tipped for a May or June launch," the Forbes reported late on Wednesday.

Notably, the iPhone maker sometimes uses different model numbers for the same type of iPhone.

iPhone X carries model numbers A1865, A1901, and A1902, depending on the iPhone's carrier or which country it is being sold in.

"Versions of iPhone running iOS 11 are listed with the model numbers A1920, A1921, A1984, A2097, A2098, A2099, A2101, A2103, A2104, A2105, and A2106. None of the numbers correspond to Apple's existing smartphone line-up," MacRumors reported.
