iPhone X SE. Premium is always smaller. They could price it at $2K and I'd buy it. It'll be faster and longer battery life than any other phone in Apple's line up - because that huge screen takes all the power and cycles. Apple need to divorce 'cheap' from 'small'. I think they should have a super plus size phone for $300 - so much more room for all the components - and much worse battery/performance. But the 'small' form factor should be for their most premium device.
I want an X SE like that.Not iPhone SE X as that would cause a media circus.I don’t see the point in having one model designed different than the rest. If Apple can release the whole line in one simple design that would be great.No LCD model or other fragmented crap.Wishful Thinking:iPhone XSNEW iPhone XiPhone XLNow with smaller notch and FaceID 2.iPhone XThat's it. 4 models available from Apple in 2018. XS would keep the SE price as the budget model and XL would potentially push ASP even higher for Apple.
oyg. I would totally pick that SE as my next phone. have a 7 and had a 6 before that. but a top tier SE just smaller would be my preference.
Though a next-generation iPhone SE isn't expected to get the OLED edge-to-edge treatment, that hasn't stopped German magazine Curved from imagining what it -- along with a Plus-sized iPhone X rumored to arrive in late 2018 -- might look like.The new mockups come on the heels of a report from analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities, who said last week that Apple has a 6.5-inch iPhone X in the works for next year. Like the iPhone X packed an edge-to-edge display into Apple's midsize phone, the so-called "iPhone X Plus" is rumored to have the same general form factor as an iPhone Plus, but with a larger display and no home button.Given those expectations, the "iPhone X Plus" concept is pretty much what you would expect -- a jumbo-sized iPhone X.The publication threw in an "iPhone SE 2" for good measure, but the concepts shown in that device seem less likely to become a reality. For one, the handset is shown with the same sharp edges as the current iPhone SE, as well as retaining a metal back that would not allow for wireless charging.On the front, the "iPhone SE 2" is shown with the same edge-to-edge display as the iPhone X and "iPhone X Plus," complete with Face ID TrueDepth camera notch.To be clear, while there have been occasional rumors of a second-generation iPhone SE potentially launching in the spring of 2018, it's expected that the handset will maintain its position as Apple's budget-focused, entry-level model. Given the costs associated with OLED displays and the TrueDepth camera, which have resulted in $999-and-up pricing on the iPhone X, it's not expected that those features would be coming to the iPhone SE so soon, if ever.
Not much of a mock up. The notch shouldn't get any bigger or smaller on other phones: they'll use exactly the same sensors. So it should be less noticeable on the Plus, not more.
The SE has flat sides because they recycled an old chassis with next to no industrial design changes. If it got such a massive re-engineering, surely the entire chassis would get modernized…?

coolfactor said:I've got the SE, and my girlfriend has the 6S. These are essentially the same phone in terms of capability and performance. She is always using my phone for games because she prefers the form factor, as do I. The SE is the best phone I've ever had, and I'll choose the "SE 2" when it finally comes out.
I would buy that SE. Immediately. I would even line up for it, which I have never done before.
bikertwin said:But perhaps Apple has decided that small screens belong on an Apple Watch, and is pushing people to larger screens on phones.
The entire idea of the SE was to minimize the changes needed, so any update to the SE would maintain the 5/5S chassis architecture, including mechanical Touch ID/Home button, or not happen at all.
