New rumors are reportedly highlighting the undeniable resemblance of iPhone SE 4 to the popular iPhone XR, which was first launched in 2018. According to speculation, Apple is planning to launch the SE 4, which is expected to offer significantly better specs than iPhone. SE 2022.
A few days ago, the company released a new generation iPad Pro powered by the M2 chip and a redesigned iPad 10 (2022). Apple’s plans for 2022 have likely ended with the sale of the new iPad models. Now fans are waiting for the company to provide more details about its plans for the coming year. As it stands, the highly publicized, spec-rich iPhone SE 4 is sure to get an official mention next year.
Everything you need to know about Apple’s upcoming iPhone SE 4
Popular rumors claim that Apple plans to release iPhone SE 4 in Q1 2023. While the expected launch time is in line with Apple’s trend, the company usually doesn’t release SE models that often.
The latest iPhone SE model came on the market at the beginning of 2022, the model before that came out in 2020. The first SE smartphone came out in 2016. From this it can be concluded that the difference between the models is usually greater than a year.
If indeed Apple plans to launch iPhone SE 4 in 2023, the company is expected to execute its plans by March/April to ensure there is a significant time gap before the iPhone 15 launch.
According to Jon Prosser, a noted Apple tipster, iPhone SE 4 will look like a redesign of the 2018 iPhone XR. It will have a larger screen than previous SE models — possibly a 6.1-inch display like the XR — and also better battery life.
Unfortunately, insiders could only provide information about the design of the model. There is not much speculation about the technical specifications of the SE 4.
That said, there are a few things to anticipate. iPhone SE 4 is expected to be powered by the A15 bionic chip, which also runs the latest iPhone 14 and 14 Plus models. It will also include 5G support, possibly a better camera, and can move from Touch ID to Face ID permanently.
Like most standard iPhone models, the SE 4 is expected to stick to the 60Hz on-screen refresh rate. Apple probably won’t omit the 64 GB storage variant for this phone, as with the iPhone 13 series. In addition, the upcoming SE models are not expected to support wireless charging as it is a budget iPhone offering.
The SE 3 (2022) costs $429 for the 64 GB variant, $479 for the 128 GB variant and $579 for the 256 GB variant. The SE 4 may see more options in storage, but the starting price is expected to remain similar to the SE 3.
The tech giant never fails to offer new iterations in longstanding product lines every year. A month ago, Apple took the opportunity at its ‘Far-Off’ event to unveil the brand new iPhone 14 and 14 Pro series, in addition to a new line of watches. All these items are currently available.
