Back in 2016, Apple launched iPhone SE smartphone which was a compact size iPhone 6s. It was launched to retain the same 4 inch iconic Apple size which has to be changed in demand of changing trend. Till now many are interesting in buying that smartphone for it’s compact size. But now it’s time for the successor. Back in March, we got a leaked render of a compact sized Apple device which was supposed to be iPhone SE 2. Now today we got another leak. This time it’s not for iPhone SE 2, but for iPhone SE (2018).
A new source (1, 2) reveals that this Apple successor will be called as iPhone SE (2018), instead of adding that ‘2’. It doesn’t seem much new because many other brands also started to name their devices like the same. Apart from the name change, the source also revealed the design language of this device. As you can see from the image above, you will see the rendered design of iPhone SE (2018) which looks pretty much original. The front clearly defines the iPhone X bezel-less design along with the notch. This time the notch is squeezed a bit in size. The home button is also missing which reveals that it will also have gesture support as well as FaceID. The left side is showing the older iPhone design, with that typical slider and volume button. The phone is in grey or maybe in black colour.
Another thing to look here is the live image of this new iPhone SE’s screen guard along with factory screen protector with black edges. It shows that the above rendered image is quite original, and the bezels will be pretty thin just like iPhone X. The iPhone 5 is placed in between and if we look both the screen guard and iPhone 5 side by side, it is clearly noticeable that this upcoming iPhone SE will have the screen size of 4 inch, or maybe 4.5 inch with the similar form factor.
Meanwhile, the popular and reliable leakster Evan Blass has also confirmed this device name by sharing an image on his Twitter handle and the image is blurred but we can see the device name.
