More details are emerging about what to expect from Apple’s next update to the iPhone SE. Screen analyst Ross Young posted on Twitter today that the 2022 iPhone SE update will likely retain the same 4.7-inch form factor and add support for 5G. In 2023, however, things could get more interesting.
For the unknown, Ross Young is an analyst for Display Supply Chain Consultants. As such, his reporting is usually based on supply chain indications such as analysts such as Ming-Chi Kuo.
Young says that the iPhone SE in 2023 may have a hole-hole design instead of a notch. This means that the iPhone SE series will probably have the chin design completely, as the current iteration has large frames at the top and bottom, plus a Home button. The design is virtually identical to the iPhone 8.
Apple LCD iPhone leak, we now hear that the next LCD iPhone SE will remain at 4.7 ″ in 2022. Some rumors that it may also have 5G with Sub-6 GHz. Also hears about a 6.1″ version in 2023 with holes instead of a notch.
Young’s new report follows a Kuo last month. Kuo wrote that the iPhone SE 2022 would add 5G connectivity and retain the same 4.7-inch design. However, he did not mention that the iPhone SE could use the hole hole design in 2023.
Kuo said the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, introduced in 2022, are likely to fall in line for a new-to-iPhone “punch-hole display design.” With this in mind, it makes sense that the hole-punch design could move down the iPhone series the following year.
In any case, it looks like we should not expect a new iPhone SE in 2021, with Apple allowing the 2020 model to continue for another year. The fate of the rumored “iPhone SE Plus” is also still unclear. Are you looking forward to a new iPhone SE? Let us know in the comments!
