At the end of 2022, much has been said about what the iPhone SE 4 should be, a cheaper iOS smartphone, but ultimately far from the outdated designs of the past. (Do you think it makes sense to launch devices based on the iPhone 7 design?)
This smartphone was supposed to hit the market in April 2024. This is with a reuse of the 2018 iPhone XR design, which despite being a ‘worn’ design, is obviously much more current compared to the design of the latest iPhone SE.
Well, for various reasons, in 2023, the rumors disappeared, and in fact, faith was lost a little regarding the launch of this device. But calm down! According to the most famous analyst in the Apple world, the iPhone SE 4 will actually be a reality, we just don’t know when or how.
What do you mean by ‘how’? Well, we have no idea about the design! As all this suggests, everything advanced in 2022 may not be valid. Why? Because the launch is not going to take place in 2023, not in 2024, and possibly not even in 2025.
iPhone SE 4 will happen. But nobody knows how
Therefore, according to Ming-Chi Kuo, there are even plans to launch an iPhone SE. Especially now that Apple is changing its strategy, and it looks like the iPhone will become more expensive in September.
However, that smartphone with a similar design to the iPhone Xr, with a 6.1” OLED screen, Face ID and side fingerprint, is a prototype developed by Apple to test its 5G modems. That is, it might not be the iPhone SE we want so badly. But it could also be.
Do you know why? Apparently, the iPhone SE will be one of the first Apple smartphones to bring the much-promised 5G modem manufactured by Apple to market. Something that is believed to happen only in 2025, or if something goes wrong, only in 2026.
In short, if this happens, the next iPhone SE will not appear on the shelves until 2 or 3 years from now, in April, and precisely because of that the design is anything but finished.
