iPhone SE 4 renders show off a familiar but uninspiring design and three colourways
Apple's upcoming "mid-range" iPhone SE 4 was slated to bring some marginal, but essential upgrades over its predecessors. However, the time-honoured tradition of slapping some new hardware in a four-generation-old chassis is alive and kicking. Now, FrontPageTech, in collaboration with Ian Zelbo, has drawn up some iPhone SE 4 renders. It is a mixture of previous rumours and some information from Jon Prosser's source.
The iPhone SE 4 will be available in three colours, Product Red, Midnight and Starlight. It features a 6.1-inch notched IPS LCD panel and a solitary rear camera module like the one featured on 2018's iPhone XR. The notch, however, is for cosmetic purposes only, as the smartphone reportedly will not feature Face ID. Instead, it tears a page out of the iPads' book and uses a side-mounted fingerprint sensor.
One of the main problems with all iPhone SE models that came before the iPhone SE 4 was their tiny 4.7-inch screens. That, combined with a battery upgrade, an A15 Bionic SoC and a US$500 price tag will make it an excellent mid-ranger, even in 2023-24. It might suffer in the camera department due to its solitary 12 MP sensor, but many users will happily make that compromise for its buttery smooth performance, stellar software support and entry into the coveted Apple ecosystem.
