A notchless iPhone of our dreams could launch as a redesigned iPhone SE in 2023

Apple’s next iPhone SE refresh is expected to feature the same “classic” design and 4.7-inch LCD display when it launches in 2022. However, it sounds like a purported 2023 iPhone SE model will be much more interesting with a rumored 6.1-inch display with a punch hole camera cut out instead of a notch.

Apple’s iPhone SE line has been popular with customers looking for bang-for-their-buck. With most newer iPhone models occupying the premium segment of the smartphone market, the iPhone SE offers relatively new Apple silicon at a much more affordable price point. The trade-off is you get an iPhone design that is now several years and fitted with a smaller 4.7-inch LCD display with relatively thick bezels.

According to emerging display-focused supply chain analyst Ross Young, Apple will be sticking with this approach when we see an iPhone SE refresh in 2022. It will carry over the same design and display but could be in line for a processor bump up to an A14 or even A15 chipset. Things will, however, start to get much more interesting in 2023, according to Young, which is when Apple is planning to launch a larger 6.1-inch model.

The 6.1-inch iPhone SE model suggests an updated design that is probably in line with the iPhone XR. However, unlike the iPhone XR, it won’t feature a Face ID notch, but instead will incorporate a smaller punch hole cutout for the front-facing camera. This would suggest that if Apple is going to skip Face ID, this model could pick up an under-display finger-print sensor that Apple will brand as Touch ID. If Apple persists with Face ID notches on its premium line, this could be the notchless iPhone a lot of people have been wanting.

I have been writing about consumer technology over the past ten years, previously with the former MacNN and Electronista, and now Notebookcheck since 2017. My first computer was an Apple ][c and this sparked a passion for Apple, but also technology in general. In the past decade, I’ve become increasingly platform agnostic and love to get my hands on and explore as much technology as I can get my hand on. Whether it is Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation, each has plenty to offer and has given me great joy exploring them all. I was drawn to writing about tech because I love learning about the latest devices and also sharing whatever insights my experience can bring to the site and its readership.
