iPhone SE 2 may very well be the most elusive handset of all time. Before every recent iPhone event, fans have whipped themselves into a giddy excitement at the prospect of a successor to the famed compact device.
Most notably, and disappointingly, the analyst declared the hardware will boast a design reminiscent of the iPhone 8. This, if true, means the device may not be as small as fans were expecting, or as futuristic.
Kuo’s claims suggest the iPhone SE 2 may tote a 4.7-inch LCD display and have a Touch ID home button, not Apple’s innovative Face ID tech.
Additionally, the phone could also have thick borders above and below its display. Something that would make it look relatively dated when compared to its almost bezel-less brothers.
It’s presumed that if Apple did launch the product described above, it would stop selling its iPhone 8 series entirely.
As a quick reminder, the Cupertino firm currently sells the iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone 11, iPhone XR and iPhone 8 new.
While the concept images in question will surely get many Apple fans reaching for their wallets with excitement, the same cannot be said of the latest leak on the iPhone SE 2.
Renowned Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo recently claimed the American tech powerhouse is gearing up to launch a successor to the iPhone SE in the first quarter of next year, according to 9to5Mac.
Kuo was quoted as saying the new handset will boast an A13 Bionic processor, 3GB of RAM and a price tag that’s more affordable than Apple’s most recent iPhones.
After seeing the Californian company push the smartphone industry in terms of borderless screen designs, the mention of an iPhone SE 2 immediately conjures up tantalising images of a new mobile retaining the same footprint as its predecessor, but with its chunky bezels recessed in favour of a more contemporary aesthetic. In other words, an iPhone X display design squeezed into the body of the iPhone 5S.
