Sketches reveal design of the Apple iPhone SE 2; images match phone seen on video earlier today
Sketches included in a report published today are said to show off the design of the rumored Apple iPhone SE 2. Yesterday, we went into depth about what you might expect to see if Apple does produce a sequel to its lowest priced currently produced handset. The images, which show the Apple iPhone SE on left and the iPhone SE 2 on right, show that the device will feature the notch. In addition, the lack of a Touch ID button on the front of the phone would seem to indicate that the iPhone SE 2 will have Face ID. And the 3.5mm earphone jack is now gone.

The sketches dovetail perfectly with a video found on China's Weibo site that allegedly shows off the iPhone SE 2. Considering that this model is expected to be Apple's lowest priced new phone of 2018, the odds actually favor it keeping the same design as the OG model, with a few spec bumps of course. The iPhone SE 2 is rumored to carry a slightly larger 4.2-inch screen and is expected to be powered by 2016's A10 Fusion chipset.

Apple will reportedly release a trio of new models in September, and all three are expected to have features of the iPhone X included. According to top Apple analyst Ming-Chi-Kuo, we should see the edge-to-edge screen, TrueDepth Camera, and Face ID on the 5.8-inch Apple iPhone Xs, the 6.5-inch Apple iPhone Xs Plus, and the 6.1-inch Apple iPhone 9. The latter will be the lone model to sport an LCD display. It also will have just one camera on back, and will not offer 3D Touch.

Apple is holding an event on March 27th. While we expect to see the unveiling of new Apple iPad Pro models that use the iPhone X design language, we could also see the introduction of the iPhone SE 2.
