Video Depicts Likely Fake iPhone X-Style ‘iPhone SE 2’

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

A video featuring a device that appears to be a cross between an iPhone SE and an iPhone X surfaced on Weibo this morning and was shared by Japanese site Macotakara.

The smartphone in the video, which has a notch at the front, an edge-to-edge display, and a vertical rear camera in a body that’s similar to the current iPhone SE, is very likely an Android clone device. Fake devices like these can often be found in China, where the video originated.


There have been rumors suggesting Apple is working on a second-generation iPhone SE, but none of those rumors have indicated the device will take on iPhone X design elements. There is no indication that the device in the video is a valid Apple product at all, and in fact, it conflicts with rumors we’ve heard about a potential future iPhone SE 2.

For example, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who often shares reliable information on Apple’s upcoming products, has said that if a new iPhone SE 2 is indeed in the works, it’s not likely to offer design updates or outward-facing changes due to Apple’s work on the three iPhones expected in September of 2018. Kuo is, in fact, skeptical that a new iPhone SE 2 is in development right now.

Rumors about the iPhone SE have been somewhat conflicting in general. Supply chain rumors in November indicated an iPhone SE 2 would be released in the first half of 2018, but recent information suggests Apple has no plans to introduce a new iPhone until later in 2018.

Sketchy rumors from a Chinese site also recently said Apple would introduce a new iPhone SE that looks similar to the current iPhone SE at WWDC, but the site has no reliable track record.

All in all, Apple may have a new iPhone SE 2 in the works, but it’s unlikely that the device is going to adopt iPhone X elements as the iPhone SE is a low-cost device while the iPhone X is Apple’s top-of-the-line flagship smartphone.

Later in 2018, Apple is expected to introduce a second-generation iPhone X with a 5.8-inch OLED display, an “iPhone X Plus” with a 6.5-inch display, and a lower-cost iPhone with a 6.1-inch LCD display. All three of these are expected to adopt edge-to-edge displays with minimal bezels and the TrueDepth Camera system for Face ID.

It could perhaps be argued that the device in the video is the 6.1-inch iPhone, but we’ve heard no rumors suggesting that particular device will have an iPhone SE-style body thus far.

Alleged Xiaomi Mi Mix 2s handled on video – uses iPhone X-style gestures, of course

The Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S is the next model in the lineup that made the whole bezelless craze mainstream (because just how much reach does Sharp have as a smartphone brand?), and we have a pretty good idea how it’ll look thanks to a seemingly official render from a week ago. But it’s even better to see the actual phone, live, on video, right? The folks over at OnPhones have gotten their hands on a Mi Mix 2S, by the looks of it, and have shared a short, yet revealing clip. The big news is that the bezelless phone will employ gestures, not unlike the ones found on the iPhone X – for accessing the…

Spy shots of Xiaomi Mi Mix 2s show an iPhone X-style cutout

Et tu, Xiaomi? There isn’t much context to these photos but they allegedly show the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2s – a reworked version of the bezel-less phone that now features an iPhone X-style cutout on top. This moves the selfie camera to a more natural position and should help reduce the bottom bezel, though that is not clearly visible in these shots. Alleged Xiaomi Mi Mix 2s photos show a display cutout on top The “horns” around the cutout are wider, leaving more room for icons in the status bar compared to the iPhone. Still, if the Essential Phone is any indication, Android apps…
