By ANAS KHAN 9 Min Read

Leaks and speculations are like breadcrumbs in the IT industry; they let fans predict when the next major invention will be. Rumours concerning Apple’s much-anticipated release have shifted the focus to the alleged specifications of the next iPhone SE. Not only does this leak delight Apple fans, but it also provides important information about the tech giant’s plans. Let’s take a closer look at what this most recent leak has revealed and see what it may mean for Apple’s upcoming launch.

iPhone SE 4 Tipped to Feature

iPhone SE 4 Tipped to Feature

Rumours about the iPhone SE 4 have been circulating for a while. The debut of the budget iPhone model has been postponed many times, and it is presently expected to happen in 2025. A fresh report claims that Apple would completely remove the notch from the forthcoming iPhone SE’s display in preference of the Dynamic Island, contradicting earlier rumours that the smartphone will adopt the design language of the iPhone 14. The iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max introduced Dynamic Island, a notification display that may show critical information. The capability was made available to all iPhone 15 models last year by Apple.

An X-perspective user named Majin Bu (@MajinBuOfficial) said that Apple’s next iPhone “could have a design very similar to that of the current iPhone 16 still in development.” Instead of the dual camera seen in the iPhone 16 models, the next phone will probably just have one. Speculation has it that the next-gen iPhone SE will include a display with Dynamic Island, which will supposedly contain the Face ID and selfie camera. To back up the rumour, the tipster has also sent a drawing. The first rumour was that the phone would look similar to the iPhone 14.

An improved 48-megapixel camera will be available with the iPhone SE 4, which will still have a single lens. A 12-megapixel camera is available on the latest iPhone SE.

The source goes on to say that the iPhone SE 4 will be a copy of the iPhone XR in terms of size. But the source warns that you shouldn’t put too much stock in the speculations “since it is still early to talk and have certainties about it.”

With the release of the iPhone 14 Pro in 2022, Apple included Dynamic Island capability. Incoming calls, music tracks, SharePlay sessions, screen recordings, low battery alerts, AirDrop transfers, Apple Maps directions, and more can all be accessed quickly via the pill-shaped cutout at the top of the screen. Even though it was already available on the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max in 2023, Apple decided to keep it on the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus as well.

The 6.1-inch OLED display of the iPhone SE 4 has been rumoured for some time. Rumour has claimed that Apple’s 5G modem chip will be included. A USB Type-C charging connector is likely to be included.

Rumour has it that the iPhone SE 4 won’t be released until at least 2025. The 64GB basic model of Apple’s newest iPhone SE (2022) retailed at Rs. 43,900 when it was released in March 2022.

Touch ID or Face ID?

Touch ID or Face ID?

The iPhone SE is the last model to have Apple’s fingerprint sensor, which the company has been gradually phasing out. With Face ID’s long history, Apple may decide to include it in the next iPhone SE.

Unknownz21, a leaker, claims that Apple has decided to remove Touch ID from all of its iPhone models, including the SE, and that the SE will instead feature Face ID.

A-Series Chip

The current iPhone SE is equipped with the same A15 chip that was in the iPhone 13 models, so the iPhone SE could get a prior-generation chip when it launches.

5G and Modem

There is 5G technology in the current iPhone SE, and it is expected that the next model will have an improved 5G processor that can handle additional bands. It is still unclear if this will be the first iPhone to have Apple’s in-house modem processor, but it is possible.


The battery life of the iPhone SE 4 should be comparable to that of the iPhone 14 because it will use the same 3279 mAh battery.

Release Date

There will likely be no update to the iPhone SE series in 2024, but rumour has it that the 4th generation could arrive in 2025.

Display Size

Assuming the rumours about the iPhone SE’s design are true, it will have a 6.1-inch display.

Display Material

While all of Apple’s other iPhones use organic light-emitting diode displays, the iPhone SE is the only model that still uses an LCD. Since the iPhone 12, all of Apple’s flagship iPhones have employed organic light-emitting diode technology; now, it seems that the next iPhone SE may follow suit.


Since the iPhone XR in 2017, Apple’s top iPhones have had a notch, so it’s safe to assume that the all-screen iPhone SE will follow suit.

Considering the price of the hardware, it is unclear whether the iPhone SE will feature Face ID and the TrueDepth camera system. However, a notch display will allow Apple to accommodate the front-facing camera. The iPhone SE will stand out due to its outdated notch design since Apple has moved on from the Dynamic Island design for its premium iPhone series.

While some reports have pointed to a design similar to the iPhone 14, others have said that the new iPhone SE would have a dynamic island instead of a notch.


The iPhone SE 4 is set to be released in 2025, with rumours suggesting that it will feature a single camera instead of a double one like the iPhone 16 models. The device is expected to sport a 6.1-inch OLED panel, Apple’s in-house 5G modem chip, and a USB Type-C port for charging. The rumoured design will be similar to the iPhone 14 model, with a 48-megapixel camera and a 6.1-inch OLED panel.

The device is expected to use Face ID instead of Touch ID, and it will use the same 3279 mAh battery as the iPhone 14. The rumoured release date is 2025, with no refresh to the iPhone SE lineup expected in 2024. The upcoming iPhone SE 4 is expected to have a similar display size, material, and notch design to the iPhone 14 model.


Will Apple stop the iPhone SE?

Possibly the last ever iPhone SE—the 2022 model
Now that the 2024 iPhone SE has been shelved, though, questions about Apple’s baseband chip’s performance compared to Qualcomm’s remain.

Is the iPhone SE 2023 waterproof?

The IP67 classification, as per IEC standard 60529 (maximum depth of 1 metre up to 30 minutes), indicates that the iPhone SE can withstand splashes, water, and dust when tested in a controlled laboratory environment. You can’t expect splash, water, and dust protection to last forever. Normal wear could cause resistance to diminish.
