Enter: an iPhone SE with a hole-punch selfie cam.

These renders were made by concept creator, Apple Lab, and based off of rumors that suggest there’s a redesigned iPhone SE in the works— specifically one that would do away with a “notch” housing the front-facing camera module in favor of a “hole-punch” style selfie camera.

The rumors, fueled by analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, may or may not be true, but that clearly hasn’t stopped anyone from speculating. If the SE did nix the camera notch, it would bring the overall appearance closer to some of Samsung’s “all-screen” Galaxy phones.

Hole-punch or no hole-punch, the redesigned SE isn’t expected to be introduced for another couple years, while a “refreshed’ version with 5G may come next year. In either case, there’s likely more speculative renders on the way.
