Apple uses the notch area to accommodate the front camera and Face ID, it might be safe to assume that the iPhone SE 2 might also feature the Face ID unlocking system bidding farewell to TouchID. As you can see from the leaked image, the notch area is smaller when compared to the iPhone X this presumably means that the phone will have a smaller form factor. The device’s notch will be around half as wide as the one on the iPhone X.
It is also hard to imagine Apple would include Face ID on the iPhone SE 2 without hiking up the price significantly. With Apple including the feature on a phone that costs around $350, there’s also a risk of cannibalizing the sales of the iPhone X, which starts at $999. On another note, yet another inclusion to the rumor mill is coming from the very famous Geskin who has posted the alleged contract related information of the iPhone SE 2 that also gives away the design of the phone in its full glory. The Geskin leaked render of the iPhone SE 2 perfectly matches with the surfaced screen protector.
