Apple looks set to reveal a new iPhone SE 2 soon which will bring features from the top-end iPhone X to an affordable handset.
Here you have the clip in question:
The video, leaked on the Japanese website Mac Otakara, shows off what is apparently the new iPhone SE 2 smartphone. It looks a lot like a perfect fusion between an iPhone X and an iPhone SE.
Previous rumors add up
There have also been some mockup sketches leaked, which appear to support this form factor. There was also reported a previous leak about Apple working on an iPhone SE 2.
Apple has previously been rumoured to release 3 new iPhones this year with a 5.8-inch iPhone X, a 6.5-inch iPhone X Plus and a more affordable 6.1-inch LCD display toting handset which could be this iPhone SE 2.
You will immediately notice the squarer shape of this phone than the current higher end iPhones, much like Apple’s older iPhone design style. But then there is that iPhone X style top-notch and bezel-free display – something which has been rumoured to appear on all of Apple’s iOS devices in the future.
Of course this must be taken with a pinch of salt. Notice that lock icon remaining on after the phone is unlocked? That suggests this could be an Android build made to look like an iPhone. Of course it could simply be a bug in what is a very early version of the iPhone SE 2.
In Feb 2018 the Taiwan Electronic Times (via the Chinese-language site MyDrivers) predicted an iPhone SE 2 launch in March, albeit with minimal design changes from the SE.
Another report, this time by the Taiwanese market research company TrendForce, believes a new iPhone SE 2 is coming in the first half of 2018.
Another possibility is that the iPhone SE2 could launch at Apple’s WWDC event in June. A report from a Chinese website at the end of February 2018 suggested that the iPhone SE2 will launch at WWDC.
