New iPhones will arrive in a few months and, of all of them, one remains as the biggest unknown: the iPhone SE.
We know some reasonable details about the (supposed) three devices that will replace the iPhone 8/8 Plus / X triad soon, but the younger brother of Apple’s smartphones remains shrouded in doubts that even question its existence in the near future.
The most recent rumor about a possible “iPhone SE 2” came a few weeks ago, stating that the bug would arrive without a headphone outlet, but still with Touch ID – that is, quite possibly a design similar to the current one, without adopting the iPhone X style (and neither does Face ID, of course). Now, as the AppleInsider, the thing is a little different.
The site points to photos, which appeared on the Chinese social network Weibo, showing glass films for the alleged new iPhone SE. From the images, it is possible to infer that the device will, after all, bring the iPhone X screen design, with clipping and no Touch ID – that, of course, if the information proceeds.
During the week, the 9to5Mac it also brought evidence that the “iPhone SE 2” would have this radical design change. First with the technical drawings and pictures of accessories from Olixar for the new device (above), which show a cutout at the top – very different from notch iPhone X, in fact, with an angular design.
Today, the site published renders 3D from the same manufacturer of accessories that show (below) the supposed new device with the “infinite” screen on the front and a glass rear, certainly to enable wireless charging.
Cutout screen … or not!
Ben Geskin, designer and insider of the Apple world, however, is not so sure that the rumors proceed. Geskin, who has a good record of success in the rumors he publishes, cited his “main source” when stating that the next iPhone SE will not bring drastic changes in design or on the screen, having its biggest difference in the rear – which would really become glass, as in the rest of the line.
I have to say, that my main source is saying that SE2 will have the same design (and display) as the first SE, but with a glass back.

That the “iPhone SE 2” will soon exist, at least, the doubts are already very few. Other insider from the smartphone world, Evan Blass (also known for his leaks and discoveries) showed on Twitter that the project is alive and already has a code to call his (which, of course, we can’t see):
