New leak says 2022 ‘iPhone SE Plus’ will come with 4.7-inch LCD display, 5G support and more

Apple is speculated to update its entry-level iPhone SE model in 2022 and rumor mills claim that consumers should not expect a major redesign of the model. A new leak by display analyst Young Ross says that Apple will call the next-generation model ‘iPhone SE Plus’, will come in the same 4.7-inch form factor as the 2020 iPhone SE and more.

Recently, MyDriver reported that the upcoming SE model will have the iPhone X industrial design, and will be Apple’s last iPhone model with an LCD display. iPhone X was the first smartphone model to feature the notch and removed the Home button.┬áIt was also said that the third-generation SE model would feature an A15 Bionic chip, 5G side, fingerprint scanner, and more.

Apple to skip larger display upgrade in 2022 iPhone SE and introduce it in 2024 iPhone SE model

As per the leak, the upcoming entry-level model will feature a 4.7-inch LCD display screen like the iPhone 8, which had thicker bezels and a Home button, and 5G network support. @Young also added that Apple will upgrade the SE lineup with a 5.7 inch – 6.1-inch LCD display in 2024. The display detail of the new iPhone SE model is corroborated by a Japanese publisher, Macotakara which also said that the new SE model will have the same design as the second-generation 4.7-inch iPhone SE (2020).

However, Young did not give the reason for pushing the launch date of the iPhone SE with a larger display ahead by a year. Previously, he reported that the 6.1-inch iPhone SE model with punch-hole display will launch in 2023.

Buying trends for┬áiPhone 12 and iPhone 13 showed consumers’ preference for larger displays. Both series offer 5.4-inch and 6.1-inch models, but 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch Pro models have been most buyers’ choices because of their larger display and advanced technology. Maybe, Apple wants to offer a cheaper model for the low-mid price range market.
