The US tech giant is planning for its next launch event after the successful launch of the iPhone 14 series and other devices and products on September 7. Now, they are planning to launch a new addition to their iPhone SE series — the iPhone SE 4 or the fourth generation iPhone SE or iPhone SE 2023. The device will likely feature a 6.1 Inch bigger display than its predecessor’s usual 4.7 Inch display.
The iPhone SE is a series of budget smartphones that is a part of the iPhone family designed by Apple for power-hungry users. The first generation iPhone SE was released back in 2016. Then following the second generation, iPhone SE was revealed in 2020, and the recent iPhone SE 3 this year. The next generation iPhone SE will supposedly be called the ‘iPhone SE 4’, which will have a comparatively more significant change in display and design than its predecessor.
iPhone SE 4 to feature iPhone XR design
The upcoming iPhone SE 4 (2023) is expected to arrive with a design like the popular iPhone XR claimed by tech new breaker Jon Prosser. For reference, the previous iPhone SE 3 and iPhone SE 2 had a design like iPhone 8, having 4.7 Inch display. And the very first generation iPhone SE featured the same design as the iPhone 5s. And as it will have an iPhone XR design, a display of 6.1 Inches is expected. However, this new iPhone SE will not have a flat-edge design. It is an excellent step for power-hungry users looking for iPhones to buy with more extensive displays that are economical.
Jon Prosser had previously predicted that the next iPhone SE model would likely eliminate the device’s home button and thick bezels. And then further, he only confirmed and acknowledged in his YouTube video the realness of his prediction for the upcoming iPhone SE model.
iPhone SE 4 Release Date
- The iPhone SE 4 (2023) could be released in March 2023.
Apple has not shared an official release date yet. However, based on the previous release cycle of SE models, the upcoming SE 4 should release in March 2023.
iPhone SE 4 Specifications (Rumoured)
As discussed earlier, the design department of the iPhone SE 4 will be the same as the iPhone XR, which signifies that the display will be 6.1 Inches. A massive upgrade in the battery department is expected as the display size goes longer. According to Ross Young, Apple is considering an OLED and an LCD panel for the iPhone SE 4. This suggests iPhone SE 4 may pack a large 6.1-inch OLED display or a 5.7-inch LCD screen.
As far as the chipset is concerned, the iPhone SE 4 is expected to be equipped with the Apple A15 Bionic Chipset used in the iPhone 13 series and the non-pro models of the iPhone 14 series. To keep the price economical, Apple may utilize a five-core GPU in their A15 Bionic Chipset. Using the A16 chip in the se model seems complicated as it will take the pricing to a high level.
Regarding the camera specifications, a single rear camera is expected to be upgraded, i.e., 12MP. The current iPhone SE features an 8MP primary camera at the back. So there are improvements in the camera department too.
The USB Type-C is expected to arrive with the iPhone SE 4 instead of a lightning port. We are unsure, but we may see a USB TypeC port this time as the latest iPad launched are on USB TypeC only.
The device will be available in three different colours, namely, Midnight (black), Starlight (white), and Product Red (red).
- Apple A15 Bionic Chipset.
- 6.1 Inches Display.
- More RAM.
- Bigger Battery.
- Fast Charging.
- 12 MP Primary Rear Camera.
- iPhone XR design.
iPhone SE 4 Price in the US
- The iPhone SE 4 is expected to be priced at $449 in the United States.
The current iPhone SE 3 is available at $429. Comparing it with its predecessor, it was priced at $399. But the iPhone SE 3 is still Apple’s most affordable iPhone with A14 Bionic Chipset and 5G technology. So we can expect the price of the forthcoming iPhone SE 4 (2023) to be between $449 to $499. Keep in mind the powerful A15 Bionic Chip which will significantly affect the smartphone’s cost.
