Face identification, dual cameras and 3D touch will probably all be missing from the new iPhone rumoured to drop in June during Apples Worldwide Developers Conference.
Latvian student Ben Geskin, well-known for accurately leaking details and photos about previous iPhones, tweeted pictures of the new telecommunications device.
“New iPhone (probably SE2) coming soon – code name: Jaguar,” Geskin wrote. “Glass Case, Wireless Charging, In Mass Production already.”
The 6.1-inch SE2 will be very similar to the original iPhone SE and will even keep the 3.5mm headphone jack that Apple removed to an uproar in 2016.
The LCD model will also probably boast a stronger display glass that will be lighter but more durable, according to a new report released by KGI Securities.
KGIs former analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said this new display technology — dubbed a Cover Glass Sensor or CGS — means cracking and shattering the phone screen is less likely, but he predicted it will not come out until Apples 2019 phone releases.
The phone is estimated to be priced at around £340 or £349, which positions it as a cheaper alternative to the iPhone X, which still costs more than £800 without tax. Apple is not positioning SE2 to be the companys largest phone drop this year, since it also plans to release a second generation iPhone X and an iPhone X Plus.
