The fourth-generation iPhone SE will feature a 6.1-inch LCD screen and a “notch” cut across the top of the screen, according to Display Supply Chain Consultants (DSCC) analyst Ross Young.
young says MacRumor that he has revised his hopes for the fourth-generation iPhone SE. In October 2021, Young, who has an excellent track record of providing insight into Apple’s plans, said that the company plans to release a new iPhone SE model in 2024 with a 5.7- to 6.1-inch LCD screen and a punch-hole. cutouts for the front camera.
In retrospect, this information might hint that Apple is exploring adding Dynamic Island to the fourth-generation iPhone SE, a change that seems plausible given that, if the device were to be released in 2024, Dynamic Island would be present in all four. major iPhone models available at the time.
Young’s revised estimate claims that the device will feature a 6.1-inch display with a notch. Whether the iPhone SE notch will contain a TrueDepth camera array like other iPhone models to facilitate Face ID is unknown. Some rumors suggest that the iPhone SE won’t get Face ID, instead sticking with Touch ID like the previous model to keep costs down.
Moving on to the all-screen design, there will no longer be room for the capacitive Touch ID Home button on the device’s bottom bezel. Several reports, including information from My Drivers and Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo suggested that Apple plans to add the Touch ID side button to the iPhone SE, like the iPad Air and iPad mini.
The size of the fourth-generation iPhone SE notch isn’t known yet, but it seems plausible that it could be narrower than on the iPhone XR if it didn’t contain components like a dot projector for Face ID since the device features Touch ID .
Chinese site My Drivers and and leaker Jon Prosser believes that the iPhone SE is set to move to a design like the iPhone XR, which will involve the removal of the Home button. This change is likely because Apple’s “SE” products have always used the old device design.
The iPhone XR features a 6.1-inch LCD screen, and Ming-Chi Kuo says that Apple is working on an iPhone SE with this screen size. Young’s latest claims seem to corroborate these other reports and help solidify a clearer picture of what to expect from the next-generation iPhone SE design.
