Apple is likely to introduce the new 2017 edition of the iPhone SE with a new camera at the upcoming World Wide Developer Conference (WWDC) on May 5. June.
According to leaked pictures in China, the new iPhone SE will come in a glass case, which could mean that Apple can get rid of the metal case in favor of glass in the next device. The iPhone 8 is also intended to come with a glass back panel. There are two vertically aligned holes for the main camera and the LED flash.
The picture also shows that the bowl is made of Ion-X glass, the same material used to make the Apple Watch Sports.
