Apple may soon release a new iPhone SE 2 this year, which will adopt the same features as the iPhone X.
BGR reportedly received iPhone SE 2 sketches by a trusted source about a week ago that pictures same design what has been spotted in the video.
The video shows of a device, similar to iPhone X, but it appears to be smaller. In place of the rounded stainless steel that wraps around the perimeter of the iPhone X, this device, running iOS, has a flattened aluminum, similar to the current iPhone SE. Towards the front, you can spot an “all-screen” design with a notch, also similar to the iPhone X. Lastly, vertically arranged dual-lens camera can be found towards the back.
However, there is no official confirmation about the leaked device. At the moment, let’s take this news with a pinch of salt.
In the past, Digitimes Research analyst Luke Lin stated that the company was preparing a new inexpensive smartphone similar to the iPhone SE for 2018, featuring the wireless charging functionality, but not 3D sensing. The smartphone was to begin mass production in the second quarter with the official launch in May or June.
Apple is gearing up to introduce three new iPhones this year – two of those are expected to sport an OLED display while the other one will come with an LCD display. However, a new report shares new details about the LCD panel for the new 6.1-inch model.
According to a report, this model will be manufactured by Japan Display Inc (JPI) and the company will be using a thin-film touch panel, which will replace the current touch panel. Japan Display also says that Full Active LCDs are six-inch displays with a resolution of 2160×1080 pixels.
Previous rumours suggest the 6.1-inch LCD model will probably sport a metal back [like older iPhones] available in several colors, adding that the other two OLED handsets will come in two sizes: one about 6.3 inches long and the other 5.8 inches.
These rumours fall in line with predictions from noted KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo who stated that Apple would launch three iPhones in 2018, out of which one would be a TFT-LCD model, which would be the most affordable iPhone from the group. This model may start around $649 to $749 (approximately Rs 42,500 to Rs 49,000) which is around the same price range of an iPhone 8.
