Swinhoe's white-eye (Zosterops simplex) is a bird species in the family Zosteropidae. It is found in east China, north Vietnam, the Thai-Malay Peninsula, Sumatra and Borneo.

This species was formerly treated as a subspecies group of the warbling white-eye (Zosterops japonicus) but based on the results of a molecular phylogenetic study published in 2018, it was promoted to species rank.

The last subspecies used to be considered a full species, Enggano White-eye. Subspecies williamsoni used to be part of the now former Oriental White-eye. The remaining subspecies seems to have come from the former Japanese White-eye.
