This stunning 2021 Apple iPhone SE concept could take the 12 mini’s crown

When Apple revealed the brand new iPhone SE last year, we were disappointed that the budget phone didn’t feature the same tiny form factor as its 2016 predecessor. Then came the iPhone 12 mini, which is small in size but big on features – and price. Want the best of both worlds? Us too, and if Apple’s next iPhone SE ends up looking anything like this stunning 2021 iPhone SE concept, we’ll be first in line.

New renders imagine an iPhone SE with the same square-edged form factor as the iPhone 12 mini, and with several features removed – alongside the addition of some intriguing new ones. Hitting the perfect sweet spot between budget, design and functionality, the concept looks like it would be a shoo-in for our best camera phones list.

Created by, the 2021 iPhone SE concept features the same OLED 5.4-inch display as the iPhone 12 mini. To bring the cost down, it features a single rear camera instead of two, and Face ID has been removed to make way for Touch ID inside the power button (much like the 2020 iPad Air). 

Perhaps the most exciting (and sadly unrealistic) change is the removal of the infamous notch. With no need for Face ID, the only thing taking up precious screen real estate in this render is a tiny camera hole. Creatives have been longing to see the notch gone since it first appeared on the iPhone X in 2017 – but with even the iPhone 13 rumoured to be getting only a slightly thinner notch, we very much doubt Apple would choose to remove it for its most budget iPhone.

Internals-wise, the concept packs the A14 Bionic chip found in the current iPhone 12 lineup. The 5G antenna has been removed, and the 12MP camera is touted as “sufficient for everyday use”.
