iPhone SE 2 will have iPhone X-like notch, says case-maker
Following the recent hands-on video that revealed a glass back on an alleged iPhone SE 2, accessory maker Olixar has outed another significant design element of the upcoming Apple smartphone. Olixar has shared a render that suggests iPhone SE 2 will feature an iPhone X-like notch. Further, it will also have a form-factor similar to its predecessor, the palm-friendly iPhone SE. Here's more.
While the renders show a front camera, earpiece, and a Face ID camera, the notch measurement of the screen protector is significantly smaller than the iPhone X. As per Olixar, the iPhone SE 2 will measure 120mmx54.82mm along with an 18.7mm wide notch on top. This suggests that the iPhone SE 2 may not include Face ID or Apple may pack them closely.
Rounding up the details one has heard through the grapevine, iPhone SE 2 might have a glass panel back to allow for wireless charging and a headphone jack. Some reports also suggest the phone may feature a 4.2-inch display, 2GB RAM, 32GB/128GB inbuilt storage and a Touch ID/Home button. It would be water resistant and powered by an A10 Fusion processor.
The iPhone SE was launched in 2016 and was based on iPhone 5 (2012). It aimed at providing a comparatively affordable iPhone for markets like India. In fact, it was manufactured in India last year. The iPhone SE 2 is also expected to be made in India to let Apple avoid tariffs and sell it at a lower price, speculated to be Rs. 23,000.
