Recently, Apple fans were disappointed to learn that the rumored iPhone SE 4 might not be released at all, per the predictions of respected analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. However, new reports suggest Kuo has changed his stance and believes Apple will launch the SE 4.
According to Kuo’s recent tweet, the tech giant has restarted the development of the SE 4, which will feature Apple’s custom 5G baseband chip instead of Qualcomm’s modems. It was reportedly the reason behind Apple’s initial plan to discontinue the iPhone SE 4. The 5G baseband chip is expected to be based on a 4nm process and support Sub-6GHz bands.
If all goes well, Apple may no longer need to rely on Qualcomm chips, and the iPhone SE 4’s success could also lead to the Apple Watch and iPad ditching Qualcomm chips in the future. The upcoming iPhone SE 4 might also feature an OLED display panel instead of an LCD one, potentially increasing its price. The new SE 4 is expected to feature a large 6.1-inch display, replacing the current 4.7-inch screen.
The iPhone SE 4 is expected to be a minor modification of the 6.1-inch iPhone 14, following the same design ethos as the latest iPhone. However, there might be some minor design changes. As for the specs, we can expect performance, camera, and battery upgrades compared to the iPhone SE 3, although specific details are not yet available.
These reports are not official, and we will have to wait until 2024 to see if the SE 4 does come to fruition. In any case, we will keep you posted on any updates. Are you excited about the iPhone SE 4? Let us know in the comments below. We’ll keep you updated on this exciting development!
