Apple has so far released three generations of its budget-friendly iPhone SE, with a new one arriving at the beginning of the year. The company has already set its sights on the next iPhone SE, and a new leak has revealed some key details about the phone.
First, the next-gen iPhone SE-or iPhone SE 4 as it will be referred to from now on-will start as a small Apple phone only after the company has abandoned the release of the iPhone 14 Mini. According to previous reports, the iPhone SE 4 will adopt the design of the iPhone XR. This source confirmed this, saying that the phone will perform like Apple’s modern phones. For some reason, though, the budget phone won’t feature Face ID.
Instead of Apple’s trusted 3D unlock feature, the source, China leaker Assen, says that the iPhone SE4 will feature a side-mounted fingerprint reader. Apparently, the small phone will sport an LCD and not an OLED screen. The price in China is expected to be between CNY 4,000 (US$560) and CNY 5,000 (US$700). In comparison, the iPhone SE (2022) starts at CNY 3,499 (US$490).
