Apple’s completely overhauled new generation of iPhone SE will take a long time to reach consumers.
According to BGR, right after Apple launched the iPhone 15 series, a new report revealed that the company is developing a new SE variant, the iPhone SE 4. Contrary to previous reports, the iPhone SE 4 project is being considered. again, as Apple seeks to reuse the design of the iPhone 14 for the next iPhone SE model.
Accordingly, in addition to removing Touch ID, the iPhone SE 4 will bring a series of upgrades compared to its predecessor. New details of the device include Face ID, a full-screen design similar to the iPhone 14, a 48 MP camera, an Action button, and a USB-C connection. In particular, when combined with a powerful processor similar to or superior to the iPhone 14 Pro, the iPhone SE 4 will be a desirable product.
For a long time, the iPhone SE series has always been popular because the price is relatively suitable for the budget of the majority of users. Therefore, the iPhone SE 4 is expected to continue to be the most powerful and affordable iPhone that Apple sells. However, the company seems not to be ready to launch the iPhone SE 4 soon, as a new report reveals that the device’s launch date will have to wait until 2025.
Specifically, a new blog post from MacRumors shows that the current development schedule of the iPhone SE 4 is expected to be released in early 2025, in line with Apple’s plan for iPhone SE versions.
That is also the time when the iPhone 16 series using Apple’s A18 and A18 Pro chips will be available in stores. Therefore, it will not be surprising to see that the iPhone SE 4 may also possess the A18 chip, the main reason for this is the appearance of the intelligent intelligence (AI) assistant Apple GPT, which is also expected to be available on iOS 18.
According to a report by MacRumors, the iPhone SE 4 will have a similar design to the iPhone 14, with an aluminum frame, glass back, and flat edges. However, the device will only have a single rear camera, instead of the dual camera system like the iPhone 14. This camera will have a resolution of 48 MP, significantly higher than the 12 MP of the iPhone SE 3. In addition, other parameters are still quite similar to previously leaked reports, including the Action button, USB-C port, and black color.
