Rumor mills claim that Apple is going to introduce a redesigned iPhone SE 4 which will feature the iPhone XR industrial design with a notch for FaceID authentication, thinner bezels, and other improvements. However, the company has not yet finalized its display.
Display analyst Ross Young reports that Apple is considering various options for iPhone SE 4’s display size and panels which are expected to launch in 2024.
Apple also considering OLED display panels for iPhone SE 4
In his latest Tweet, Young wrote that Apple would introduce a larger display in the next-generation entry-level iPhone but has not yet decided on its size, either 5.7-inch or 6.1-inch. The current iPhone SE 3 (2022) models feature a 4.7-inch display like its predecessor.
Furthermore, the tech company has to finalize whether to use expensive OLED display panels or cheaper LCD display panels. OLED display panels are used in the flagship iPhone series which is likely to increase the price of the new entry-level iPhone.
We hear Apple has not yet finalized its display choice on the SE4. It is believed to be considering 6.1″ OLEDs from 2 suppliers as well as 5.7″-6.1″ LCDs from 2 suppliers.
At this point, Young has retracted his predictions of the iPhone SE 4’s specs a few times now. Initially, he reported that the upcoming entry-level iPhone would feature a 5.7-inch or 6.1-inch LCD display and a hole-shaped cutout for a front-facing camera without FaceID support.
Later, he revised that assessment and said that the 2024 iPhone SE 4 would ship with a larger 6.1-inch LCD display and a notch, not a hole-shaped cutout for the selfie camera, with FaceID support.
A larger LDC display makes more sense for the fourth-generation iPhone SE to keep the price in the affordable range.
