iPhone SE 2: A new leak claims to show the glass panel that will cover the display for the iPhone SE 2, reports AppleInsider. The glass panel for the display features a notch at the top. This would suggest that the iPhone SE 2 will take some design ques from the iPhone X. This contradicts previous rumors, which say its design will be mostly the same as the original iPhone SE. However. it does match up with a recent render leak of the iPhone SE 2 from a casemaker.
LCD iPhone X: It looks like even the LCD iPhone X will have a special screen, BGR notes. A recent rumor claims that the device will use the new MLCD+ screen from LG. This screen recently made its debut on LG’s G7 ThinQ smartphone. The new type of LCD screen allows fror brighter colors. This gives it performance that is closer to the OLED display in the iPhone X. If this rumor is true, it means that budget customers can still get an iPhone X with a great screen this year for a cheaper price.
