We have recently heard new rumors about the arrival of the iPhone SE 4, the cheapest next-generation Apple mobile that we can find after the arrival of the iPhone 14. Jon Prosser assured in one of the Apple podcasts that this device will have a new design very different from the iPhone SE 3, looking more like the iPhone XR.
iPhone SE 4: Bigger and Without Touch ID Button
If we already know that Apple has definitively abandoned the mini-series of new models, we are not surprised to see that the new iPhone SE 4 would leave behind its compact size of 4.7″ to arrive with a large 6.1″ screen. This is achieved by removing the Home button at the bottom to update with the familiar Face ID and notch. What we will not see in this economic range is the Dynamic Island of the iPhone 14.
We can also see it in new colors just like the iPhone XR: Midnight, Starlight, and the famous red color. But the novelties of the iPhone SE 4 are not simply based on a new design, since we could see new technical specifications inside.
For starters, the biggest change would be the use of a new, more up-to-date chip. If in the iPhone XR we saw an Apple A12, in this latest economic model we could find the same Apple A15 as in the iPhone 14. Especially since it would be rare to find the last Apple since it is a cheaper range than the iPhone 14 itself. Apple could also use the 5-core GPU version of the A15.
On the other hand, the iPhone SE 4 would have greater resistance to water and dust with IP67 certification and a new 12MP camera. The same with the battery and RAM, with higher capacity and faster charging.
As we expected for the following Apple models, the iPhone SE 4 would definitively abandon Lightning to be the first mobile in the house with a USB-C port, although this is not entirely certain. However, as this change has been seen in the latest iPad to follow European regulations, Apple may surprise us.
iPhone SE 4 Launch and Price
If we follow the saga of the latest iPhone SE, we see that they were launched in 2020 and in 2022, which would make us think that it could arrive by 2024. However, seeing how the mobile phone market is progressing and according to Prosser, everything points to this iPhone SE 4 would arrive in the spring of 2023.
As for the price, we have always seen this model hovering between $429 and $559. Taking into account the high price increases of the latest iPhone, it could reach around $559-599, being the cheapest next-generation iPhone on the market.
