iPhone SE 4 could launch with an OLED panel instead of LCD
Previous rumours suggested Apple would reuse the iPhone XR chassis for the upcoming iPhone SE 4. Shortly after, controversial leaker Jon Prosser and 3D artist Ian Zelbo drew up some renders of the low-cost iPhone. Industry analyst Ross Young, one of the first people to reveal the iPhone SE 4's display specs, now states that the smartphone could use an OLED panel.
In a super followers-only Tweet, Young says Apple is yet to finalize the iPhone SE 4's design. It could now replace the rumoured 6.1-inch LCD panel with an OLED counterpart. Alternatively, Apple could also substitute the LCD panel with a smaller, 5.7-inch variant. However, that would involve changing the phone's chassis, which could likely end up being a redesigned iPhone X/Xs. Apple is reportedly talking to two different OLED panel suppliers for the iPhone SE 4.
Given its mid-range status, it might not feature a high-end panel from Samsung and settle for lower-cost alternatives from the likes of BOE. It would, nevertheless, be a significant quality-of-life upgrade for a SE-class iPhone. Then again, the iPhone SE 4 isn't due for launch anytime soon. However, its larger screen and powerful A15 Bionic SoC makes it a formidable competitor in the otherwise Android-dominated mid-range smartphone market.
