“The iPhone SE 2 rumor train has been a wild one,” Benjamin Mayo reports for 9to5Mac. “There are many conflicting reports about the device, ranging from rumors of a major chassis change to only a minor hardware revision.”
“These new photos purport to show a fully built iPhone SE 2, with resemblances to some leaked shells first seen in March,” Mayo reports. “They depict a device somewhere in between the two extremes of the rumored specs; a new glass back for wireless charging but a 3.5mm hole for a headphone jack remains.”
“The current iPhone SE has an aluminum back design with small glass panels at the top and bottom only,” Mayo reports. “Disagreeing with a report from last week, the pictured chassis clearly retains a 3.5mm headphone jack.”
