Apple iPhone SE Rumors: What we know so far

Apple iPhone SE Rumors: What we know so far

In March 2016, Apple released the iPhone SE, and in 2020 and 2022, Apple launched the second-generation iPhone SE and the third-generation iPhone SE respectively. The small-screen classic design and low pricing have attracted the attention of many users, which also made many users keep watching whether the SE series would bring follow-up products. But two years later, Apple has yet to release the fourth-generation iPhone SE.


Recently, rumors about the new iPhone SE have been going around, let's take a look at the latest news about the iPhone SE 4 so far.


What specs and features will the iPhone SE 4 have?

Notch Design

The latest renders of the iPhone SE 4 bring a pleasant surprise: the new iPhone SE may adopt a more avant-garde Dynamic Island design.


The Dynamic Island first appeared in the iPhone 14 Pro and became a standard feature in the iPhone 15 series. Its unique capsule-shaped screen cutout not only enhances the visual impact of the screen, but also provides enough space for the front-facing camera and sensors. The new iPhone SE may adopt the Face ID notch design, marking the first time that the SE series will enter the notch era, which is a major update and leap for the SE series.

However, it is worth noting that the final design of the iPhone SE has not yet been determined. This also means that while the Dynamic Island design seems like a likely option, there are still variables. Apple may fine-tune the design based on market research and user needs to ensure that the new iPhone SE can meet the expectations of consumers.


Display Size

It is reported that the iPhone SE 4 will be equipped with a 6.1-inch display screen, with body parameters of 147.7mm in height, 71.5mm in width, and 7.7mm in depth.

As for the camera, according to the leak, there are two possible design schemes, one is to place the lens and flash in an overall raised rear camera module, and the other is to place the camera separately and raise upward.


Both designs have appeared in past iPhone devices. In this design, the rear camera and flash are integrated into a single raised module, which is designed to improve the unity and beauty of the phone, and can better protect the lens and flash from scratches.


How much will the iPhone SE 4 cost?

Of course, the biggest concern for consumers is the price of the new iPhone SE, but there's no word on that either. Based on past data, we expect it to be priced similarly to the iPhone SE 2022, starting at around $429. Since the iPhone SE may get some upgrades, it is not ruled out the possibility that the price will become higher.


Here are the prices for previous models.

  • iPhone SE (2016) : $399
  • iPhone SE 2 (2020) : $399
  • iPhone SE 3 (2022) : $429


When will the iPhone SE 4 be released?

According to industry insiders, iPhone SE 4 may have to wait another year to be launched. If the new iPhone SE arrives in 2025, Apple may keep the iPhone SE 4 until the March 2025 launch after the iPhone 16 is released in September 2024, and no updates to the ‌iPhone SE‌ line are expected in 2024.
