Possible iPhone SE 2 screen gets compared with the iPhone X: Check out the smaller notch
Talk about a second generation of the small but potent iPhone SE has been around for some time now, with the gossip windmill spewing more and more leaks and gossip as the developer-centric WWDC nears. The most substantial leak that we've got hold off is an alleged display panel for said iPhone SE 2 that features a notch, heavily hinting that the iPhone X design language could seep down to the smallest iPhone lineup.

A brand new leak originating from the vast expanse that Twitter is shows us two screen protectors, one clearly intended for the iPhone X, and a similar-looking but much smaller one allegedly prepped for the iPhone SE 2. As Sonny Dickson, the leaker behind the screen protector, points out, the notch of the iPhone SE 2 has a smaller area. There's a reason for that, it would seem - rumors point out that while the phone would likely have a notch, it wouldn't necessarily boast the iPhone X's 3D face-recognition tech.


This falls in line with all the earlier rumors we've heard so far and really fills us with optimism that, you see, Apple could actually release an iPhone SE 2 this year.

However, there's still a lot of uncertainty: we are not entirely convinced a seemingly major announcement like the iPhone SE 2 would take place at a purely developer-centric event like WWDC, which usually is the stage on which new version of iOS, macOS, and watchOS debut. A slightly more probable announcement date for the iPhone SE 2 could be Aple's September event, which would treat us to a full refresh of the iPhone lineup.

We've taken the opportunity to create a handful of cool renders that could showcase the upcoming iPhone SE 2, you can check them out below:


We will live, and we will see.

The iPhone X continues to be the industries trend setter, doing once again what Apple does best; forces the competition to follow all while being the #1 selling device in the world. Android manufacturers are scrambling in place figuring out how to get their devices to sell as well as the iPhone X. Fans and non-fans alike are more than happy, and excited, for an iPhone seX to come out. For years, the iPhone 5 was the worlds best compact phone, which transitioned to the SE in due time. Now, the world gets to witness greatness again, with the iPhone seX.

I prefer slim bezels on a device that gets rid of the status bar for 90% of what I do on my phone thereby saving me the same amount of screen space without having to look at a unibrow...

You know what a lot of people aren't talking about. Biometrics. If it has that tiny both then how is it supposed to have face ID. And there's obviously no fingerprint scanner on the front.

?? Why can't it have Face ID with a smaller notch? They can engineer the FaceID components to be smaller which looks like what they did for the SE2.

I would hope the iPhone SE2 retains that rectangular shape of the iPhone SE/ iPhone 5s which would make it easier to hold without buying case.

Eh, I'll believe it when I see it.
