iPhone SE 4 is slated to launch in 2023 as reported previously. The second-gen and third-gen SE came with the same design as iPhone 8. But, both still managed to be successful courtesy of the latest chipset and an affordable price tag. The price-to-performance ratio was so good with the 2020 iPhone SE. It managed to sell very well and produced a great profit for Apple. However, it changed with the iPhone SE 3. The price-to-performance ratio wasn’t that good with the third-gen. But, it still came into the top 10 selling phones of the previous half of the year.
Jon Prosser confirmed the previous leaks about the iPhone SE 4. As we reported previously, the next iPhone SE will indeed launch in Q1 2023. Moreover, he reported that the device will see a major design overhaul in the context of midrange Apple phones. Apple will use the iPhone XR’s body with new internals for the iPhone SE 4. Furthermore, there will be 3 colors launching with the SE 4. Starlight, Midnight, and Product Red will be launched.
According to DSCC Ross Young, Apple is still yet to decide on the iPhone SE 4’s Display. Apple is considering 5.7″ and 6.1″ displays to use in their next mid-range phone. Moreover, there is also a chance we could get an OLED screen on the SE 4. Ross Young claims that Apple is in talks with a vendor for 6.1″ OLED panels and 5.7″ and 6.1″ LCD panels with other vendors as well. This SE 4 saga continues its twists and turns. However, one thing is certain. We will be seeing a more modern SE device for sure.
Who Will Upgrade?
A lot of consumers holding on to the iPhone 11 series and the SE 2 will look to upgrade. However, Apple will need to hold the price under $400. To compete with the competition, Apple will need to keep the price competitive. Moreover, we think the processor might not change from SE 2. If the iPhone 14 non-pro models don’t get a processor upgrade, the SE 4 won’t as well. So, what do you think about the iPhone SE 4 rumor mill? Let us know in the comments below.
