Apple’s Next 4-Inch iPhone Will Borrow a Key iPhone X Feature
While evidence coming from reliable sources indicates that Apple might be launching a Plus-sized version of the iPhone X as part of a three-model lineup this year, it looks like the company isn’t planning to give up on 4-inch devices either, with a second-generation iPhone SE also in the works.
A report from tekz24.com indicates that Apple’s iPhone SE 2 will borrow one key feature from the iPhone X, and although the first thing that comes into mind is Face ID, the feature in question is the glass body.
As compared to the existing iPhone SE, which uses a metal body just like the iPhone 7, the second generation will make the switch to glass to align with the new iPhone 8 and iPhone X.
This, in turn, will allow for other features on the 4-inch device, including wireless charging, which is only possible with a glass body and is exclusively offered on the 2017 iPhones.
