Apple's most rumoured phone iPhone SE 2 or iPhone X SE is getting some renders now. It was released in 16GB and 64GB variants but additional 32GB and 128GB storage variants were released previous year.

However, even if this design is true, Mac Otakara citing a Chinese accessory maker said that Apple will only be able to unveil this alleged iPhone SE 2 in Q3 this year.

A research note from Yuanta Securities says Apple could launch an iPhone with three rear 12-megapixel cameras and optical image stabilization, which helps to make photos less blurry and produces smoother video footage.

Sources told Mac Otakara that Apple hasn't asked its manufacturing partners to start producing the iPhone SE 2 yet.

They predict that if Apple decides to release a triple-camera iPhone, that other smartphone vendors like Samsung and Huawei will likely follow suit. However, Mac Otakara gave further insight by claiming that Apple hadn't quite decided on what the final design of the iPhone SE 2 would be like. The tech giant has reportedly "not yet made a final decision" on the iPhone SE 2's design and is now testing several prototypes to arrive at a choice. It has a bezel-less design with no physical home button or Touch ID.

After Russia's annexation of Crimea in March 2014, the peninsula found itself between a rock and a hard place. At the other end of the 19-kilometer bridge, in Crimea, Putin attended a brief open air show.

Back in April, Ben Geskin tweeted that the iPhone SE 2018 may also come with a glass backing in order to allow for wireless charging, much like with the 2017 phones.

WWDC is where Apple shows off its new operating system updates including new features that will arrive on iOS, macOS and watchOS.

The iPhone SE 2 or the iPhone X SE is a cheaper clone of iPhone X. Hints suggests that the phone will be featuring A10 Fusion SoC, the one which was used in iPhone 7 along with 2GB of RAM. And some next models of iPhone X could be launched in September. It had an aluminum frame. Apple is also testing three types of prototype glass screens for the same. If the company chooses to release this model with Face ID technology without any major price hike, it could significantly cannibalize the sales of Apple's premium smartphones. It states that the device is nowhere close to the mass production now. There have also been rumors that the upcoming model could ditch the 3.5mm headphone jack.

All of those details - if they're accurate - could make some question whether Macotakara's sources are talking about the 6.1-inch iPhone 9 instead of the iPhone SE 2. One design is said to be the exact same as the current iPhone SE while another is said to feature a 6-inch display.

Referring to the LCD iPhone as iPhone 8S, Rosenblatt Securities analyst Jun Zhang told investors that the device would revive the color scheme of the iPhone 5C to attract the younger consumer market. A few weeks ago we had reported about the plausible spec sheet that this new iPhone model from Apple might sport.
