In recent months, it’s been rumored that Apple will bring back the iPhone SE series with an iPhone SE 2. That has not been confirmed but a new concept video by Gunho Lee has given us a look on what the device’s design could be.
The iPhone SE 2 is one of three phones rumored to be coming in 2018. The first iPhone SE, released in 2016, was unveiled at a separate event by Apple. The date of Apple’s WWDC 2018 event has not been confirmed but many are expecting to see iOS updates, a new iPad and even an iPhone SE 2 there.
There have been a few concept images and videos of the iPhone SE in the past but this one gives a much different look. Previous concept images and videos have shown an iPhone SE 2 with a front similar to the iPhone X. The majority of them show a back similar to the iPhone SE and 5s.
This concept video gives a totally different look on the iPhone SE 2. The video begins with a device that looks a lot like the iPhone 7 and iPhone 8 on the back. The only noticeable difference between the concept and iPhone 7 and iPhone 8 is that the one on the video has the flash under the camera. Speaking of the camera, this iPhone SE 2 concept has a single camera on the back, just like the iPhone 7 and iPhone 8.
It’s a different story on the front, with the device showing a screen similar to the iPhone X. The concept even has the notch found on Apple’s premium phone. Something like this would be a huge change from the first iPhone SE, which brought all the hardware from the iPhone 6s but kept a similar design to the iPhone 5s.
The iPhone SE was released almost two years ago and 2018 could be the year when we see a new version. The first iPhone SE was a nice release as it brought the hardware from the current iPhone at the time, the iPhone 6s, but at a much lower price. The device was also a nice option for those who prefer much smaller phones.
Apple’s WWDC 2018 event is rumored to be taking place some time in June, so we’re still a few months away from an iPhone SE 2 announcement, if Apple is actually planning to bring back the series.
