There have been some rumours in the past regarding the iPhone SE 2 and expectation for it are high since the first one was quite a hit. Some reports have suggested that Apple is currently working on the next budget iPhone model, although, Apple hasn’t announced anything regarding the same. Earlier today, a video was posted on Weibo by a user named “Kimmi”, which depicts a device housing an iPhone X-like notch, and the vertically placed dual rear cameras. If rumours are anything to go by, the device in the video may be the iPhone SE 2.
The device does resemble the iPhone SE in terms of its boxy design with flatter sides. From the front, it has a bezel-less design with a notch, while there is a vertically positioned dual-camera setup, both of which are very similar to the iPhone X. The alleged iPhone SE 2 can also be seen featuring the gestures which were also earlier introduced with the iPhone X. Everything on the device looks very close to iOS, especially to the previous year’s flagship, and it has been made to look very convincing in terms of all the software gimmicks.
Previously, we had seen a leak regarding the arrival of three iPhone X variants for the 2018 lineup of Apple iPhones in different screen sizes. It’s possible that the device in this video might be a prototype of the iPhone X variant with a smaller display. The iPhone SE 2 cannot afford to feature the Face ID, or any of its hardware, since it’ll increase the pricing of the device, and the iPhone SE series is meant to be affordable. The handset also seemingly sports a glass back, suggesting the presence of wireless charging, which would again raise the cost.
Overall, the video doesn’t seem convincing or the device could be an early prototype for the 2018 iPhone family. But it’s safe to say that the iPhone SE 2 won’t be similar to the iPhone X in terms of design and even many other aspects. Apple is expected to unveil three iPhones this year — a second-generation iPhone X, a larger iPhone X Plus, and a cheaper iPhone with an LCD display. Earlier reports have suggested the three variants to feature the FaceID and TrueDepth camera.
