News Highlights: This beautiful Apple from 2021 iPhone SE concept could take the crown from the 12 mini
When Apple unveiled the brand new iPhone SE last year, we were disappointed that the budget phone didn’t have the same small form factor as its 2016 predecessor. iPhone 12 mini that’s small in size, but big on features – and price. Do you want the best of both worlds? So do we, and if Apple is next iPhone SE looks something like this beautiful 2021 iPhone SE concept, we are first in line.
New renderings present themselves iPhone SE with the same square shape factor as the iPhone 12 mini, and with several features removed – in addition to the addition of some intriguing new ones. Striking the perfect balance between budget, design, and functionality, the concept appears to be a shoo-in to our list of best camera phones.

Created by svetapple.sk, the 2021 iPhone SE concept has the same OLED 5.4-inch display as it iPhone 12 mini. To cut costs, it has a single rear camera instead of two, and Face ID has been removed to make way for Touch ID in the power button (much like the 2020 iPad Air).
Perhaps the most exciting (and sadly unrealistic) change is the removal of the infamous notch. Since Face ID is not required, the only thing that takes up valuable screen space in this view is a small camera hole. Creatives have been looking forward to seeing the notch disappear since it first appeared on the iPhone X in 2017 – but with even the iPhone 13 rumored to only get a slightly thinner notch, we highly doubt Apple would choose to remove it for most budgets iPhone.

Internally, the concept includes the A14 Bionic chip found in the current one iPhone 12 arrangement. The 5G antenna has been removed and the 12 MP camera is touted as “adequate for everyday use”.
And now the most important aspect of any budget phone: price. Interestingly, svetapple.sk suggests a higher price than the current one iPhone SE, bringing it from $ 399 to $ 549. At the original price it would be “too strong a competitor for the iPhone 12 mini ”(currently $ 699). If we’re being honest, we can’t see a $ 150 price hike going well iPhone SE fans – even though it’s still $ 150 less than the iPhone 12 mini (and has the same contemporary design).
In many ways, the iPhone 12 mini feels like the spiritual successor to the 2016 iPhone SE, with a similar flat-edged design and smaller body than the 2020 iPhone SE (check out our iPhone 12 mini review for our verdict on the diminutive). While aspects of this concept, such as the lack of notch, feel like wishful thinking, we wouldn’t be surprised if Apple changed the shape of the iPhone 12 mini for the next SE – making it the ultimate smartphone for users on a budget who prefer a pocket-sized device.
Of course, not all of Apple’s decisions make sense (this is the company that sells wheels for $ 699), so time will tell if it chooses to have the ultimate iPhone SE in the picture of the 12 minis.
