Apple’s iPhone SE has been a popular choice among users looking for a more affordable yet powerful iPhone option. In 2023, rumors have been circulating about the release of the iPhone SE 4, which is expected to pack a punch in terms of specs and features while maintaining a budgetfriendly price point. Apple has been tight lipped about the official release date and price, but various leaks and rumors have given us some insights into what we can expect from the upcoming iPhone SE 4. In this blog post, we’ll look into the latest rumors surrounding the iPhone SE 4 and explore what features and upgrades Apple may have in store for us.
What is the release date of the iPhone SE 4?
As Apple’s iPhone SE line doesn’t follow the same predictable annual release schedule as the standard line, predicting the launch date can be a bit tricky. However, if we look at the past release pattern, it seems like the next iPhone SE (4th gen) could be released in March or April of 2024.Moreover, industry expert Ross Young, who specializes in displays and is renowned for his accurate predictions, has also suggested that the iPhone SE 4 could be released in 2024.
Although the iPhone SE release pattern may not be as predictable as the standard line, it’s expected that the iPhone SE 4 will be released in March or April of 2024, following the biennial pattern. With that in mind, Apple enthusiasts can anticipate a budgetfriendly iPhone with updated features and improved design to add to their collection.
What is the price of the iPhone SE 4?
Over the years, we’ve seen the price of the iPhone SE climb steadily across its three generations. This price hike can largely be attributed to the increasing cost of components and distribution in the global market. However, with the release of the iPhone SE (3rd generation), Apple seemed to have added a heftier chunk onto the price tag, making the current model less appealing than its predecessors, particularly considering the limited storage space on the base model.
Here’s a rundown of how the three generations compare in terms of pricing:
- iPhone SE (3rd gen, 2022): 64GB: $429/£449 128GB: $479/£499 256GB: $579/£609
- iPhone SE (2nd gen, 2020): 64GB: $399/£419 128GB: $449/£469 256GB: $549/£569
- iPhone SE (1st gen, 2016): 32GB: $399/£379 128GB: $499/£449
We would be surprised if Apple decided to raise the price too much with the next generation. After all, the iPhone SE has always been a popular choice for those looking for a more affordable option without compromising too much on the features.
iPhone SE 4 Leaks:
According to display analyst Ross Young, the next iPhone SE could feature a 6.1-inch full-screen display with a notch cut-out, similar to the iPhone XR’s design. Young also claims that the new iPhone SE will have an upgraded chipset, possibly the yetunannounced A17 Bionic.
One of the most significant changes in the next iPhone SE could be the inclusion of Face ID, as Young suggests that the phone will have a notch. However, it is unclear if Apple will use the large notch found in the iPhone 11 or the smaller one seen in the iPhone 13 range. There is also the possibility that the notch will house only the front-facing camera tech, with Touch ID remaining on the power button.
While there is no confirmation on the design or features, Jon Prosser has collaborated with concept designer Ian Zelbo to create renders that suggest the next iPhone SE will have an iPhone XR-like form factor.
In any case, the next iPhone SE is expected to match the processing power of the flagship iPhone range, with the possibility of an upgrade to 4GB of RAM. As always, we’ll keep our eyes peeled for more rumors and update this section as soon as we have more information.
