A video surfaced on Thursday, hinting that Apple may actually release a second-generation iPhone SE. The supposed iPhone SE leaked video was first spotted on Sina Weibo, China’s social media website.
Leaked video shows iPhone SE
A quick check of the video showed an unreleased version of iPhone SE that features a glass back. The short video clip was reuploaded to YouTube. Among the features that the leaked iPhone SE video revealed was the support for wireless changing.
Regarding the phone’s physical aspect, the leaked iPhone SE looks similar to the current phone. It is a 4-inch phone that has top and bottom bezels, a Touch ID, a front camera as well as earpiece. The phone also retains the 3.5mm headphone jack.
However, there’s only a minor difference if you are going to review the video. The supposed Apple iPhone lacks regulatory labels. This prompted Apple users to question the phone’s originality. Hence, as of this posting, all the information should be viewed with skepticism.
In case you don’t know, the production of substandard iPhones in China is a thriving market. One thing to note is that the source of the leaked video is not revealed. More so, the video’s authenticity has yet to be confirmed by Apple for this matter.
One thing is clear though: the phone in the video actually an accurate dummy of a certain phone model. This information is based on the supply chain information. In a blog posted by Japanese Mac Otakara, he claims that a new Apple iPhone is expected to be released this coming May.

Rumors have it that Apple Inc. is planning to release a new flagship called iPhone 11. Although the tech company has just released iPhone X, reports across the web indicate that a new iPhone is something to look forward this year.
Here’s what we know so far
The Cupertino-based company, according to The Investor, would likely to release two models of iPhones. The iPhones are expected to feature OLED displays. This confirms the earlier information that Apple, in 2017, had ordered with Samsung for 6.5, 5.2 and 5.8-inch displays. But the company has reportedly cancelled the 5.2-inch display because of its low marketability.
Apart from the OLED display, the company has also ordered a panel with Japan display for its 6-inch plus iPhone model, according to a report published by The Wall Street Journal. Based on the same report, Apple has chosen Japan Display because its panel is cheaper compared with the OLED displays.
What’s amazing about having a Full Active LDC display is its darker black feature and can be used if your hands are wet. This information backs the information reported by KGI Securities that Apple may release a cheaper 6.1-inch iPhone this year.
Also, a recent report from KGI Securities revealed that the budget iPhone 6.1-inch wouldn’t have the Apple’s 3D Touch feature. If this rumor is true, then it is expected that Apple users would be disappointed on this one.
Regarding casing, the rumored iPhone 11 would feature a metal case. All rumored iPhone models would come in various colors. Casetek was reported to supply the cases of the rumored iPhone 11. On features, the rumored phone won’t feature TrueDepth as the company would be focusing to launch new models with front-facing TrueDepth cameras as well as stabilizing equipment.
