Rumors of an updated iPhone SE, dubbed the iPhone SE 2 somewhat predictably, have been popping up left and right for weeks now and if recent events are anything to go by, an announcement by Apple may not be too far off.
We already knew that phone case company Olixar had a protector for the iPhone SE 2 all lined up, and now both the manufacturer and retailer MobileFun is offering cases for pre-order.
Based on the case that is now available and the renders that appear to show it and the iPhone on which it will fit, it does indeed appear that the new iPhone SE 2 will look similar to the handset it will replace, but with a distinct iPhone X look to it.
That look will come from the natch atop its display and the complete lack of a Home button. This obviously raises plenty of questions about how the device will be unlocked and authenticate, and given the fact the notch on these renders is much smaller than the notch on the iPhone X it’s difficult to see how the hardware required by Face ID would be accommodated.
The FlexiShieldi Phone SE 2018 case that is now available for pre-order is offered in four different colors, all of which allow for what appears to be a glass-backed iPhone to be seen. If anything, this is the one part of the renders that makes sense to us, especially given the rumors that an iPhone SE replacement would ship with wireless charging capabilities. We’re still far from convinced about the front, though, given the Face ID concerns we just covered.
If this is indeed what the new iPhone SE replacement looks like, though, complete with Face ID capabilities, we cannot wait to see what it is priced at. The iPhone SE is very much at the affordable end of the spectrum. Can Apple offer a phone with Face ID at that same price point?
