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.
