iPhone SE 2 shows up in video, boasts classy glass-based look

There’s a new iPhone launching soon, and it’ll be small but very powerful. Apple is expected to announce the iPhone SE 2 within the next few weeks as a successor to the model released in 2016. The refreshed iPhone SE should remain compact in size but receive plenty of upgrades that include a new look and upgraded specifications. The iPhone SE 2 could even arrive at a more budget-friendly price.

Apple’s next big announcement isn’t immune to leaks. Since the beginning of this year, the iPhone SE 2 has appeared in photos and videos ahead of its official debut. This week, the small-built iPhone might’ve been caught on camera again.

Watch the leaked video right here:

The video, which was posted on Chinese social media service Weibo, claims to show an alleged iPhone SE 2 from every angle.

More than anything else, the glass-based design stands out. The original model had aluminum, but Apple recently switched to glass for the iPhone 8 and iPhone X to accommodate for wireless charging support. The iPhone SE 2 should then have wireless charging as well.

Meanwhile, the frame is still metal. Apple, as well as other companies, use metal frames to hold everything in place if your mobile device takes a drop.

The iPhone SE 2 is reportedly going to feature a 4-inch display, the A10 Fusion processor, and Touch ID. Unlike Apple’s last iPhone SE, this one should be capable of running complex apps.

So far, there hasn’t been any mention of the iPhone SE 2 from Apple. The company, though, did send multiple unannounced iPhone models through the Eurasian Economic Commission’s database. It’s the same database that has exposed soon-to-be-official products many times before. With the model numbers not belonging to any existing products, Apple seems likely to be hosting some type of launch event very soon.
