Only yesterday, we reported about the display of the iPhone SE 2 and unlike the 4-inch handset announced back in 2016, the components and renderings led everyone to believe that the upcoming device will bear a design that is similar to the iPhone X and will sport a notch in the process too. While some insiders have shared their lack of enthusiasm over the release of an updated compact smartphone, leaked text shows that Apple might indeed be working on something, but it is not being called the iPhone SE 2.
