The iPhone SE 4 may not have been canceled after all, with the compact model expected to sport both an OLED display and use Apple's in-house baseband chip. In January, famed TF Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo declared Apple had canceled the iPhone SE 4 for 2024, rather than delaying its release. In a new update from the analyst, it seems the project is still in motion.
The new iPhone SE will be equipped with Apple's custom-designed 5G modem, with connectivity limited to sub-6GHz bands of 5G, the analyst said. The current iPhone SE already supports 5G, but uses Qualcomm's custom Snapdragon X57 chip.
When it comes to the rear-facing side, it's still unclear if the iPhone SE will finally adopt MagSafe charging and a dual-camera system when the 4th-gen model launches. Considering that this phone costs around $400, Apple typically avoids equipping it with newer technologies found on its higher-end smartphones. So we wouldn't be surprised if its back looks like that of an iPhone XR, featuring a single camera lens.
There's no timetable on when exactly the iPhone SE 4 will be released, but it appears it won't be available until 2024 at the earliest. The current iPhone SE was released in March 2022, for example, with pricing starting at $429 in the U.S. The device is Apple's last iPhone with a Home button and Touch ID, but Face ID is likely for the new model if it is based on the iPhone 14.
