Kuo: New iPhone SE With 6.1-Inch OLED Display and Apple's 5G Chip Planned

Apple has restarted development of a fourth-generation iPhone SE with a 6.1-inch OLED display and an Apple-designed 5G chip, according to the latest information shared by reputable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. This reversal comes nearly two months after Kuo said Apple had abandoned its plans to release a new iPhone SE in 2024.

In a series of tweets today, Kuo said the new iPhone SE will be similar to the standard iPhone 14, which features a 6.1-inch OLED display with thinner bezels. The current iPhone SE is equipped with a 4.7-inch LCD display with thicker bezels.

The new iPhone SE will be equipped with Apple's custom-designed 5G modem, with connectivity limited to sub-6GHz bands of 5G, the analyst said. The current iPhone SE already supports 5G, but uses Qualcomm's custom Snapdragon X57 chip.

Kuo did not indicate when the new iPhone SE would be released, but it likely won't be available until March 2024 or later based on when previous models of the device launched. The current iPhone SE was released in March 2022, for example, with pricing starting at $429 in the U.S. The device is Apple's last iPhone with a Home button and Touch ID, but Face ID is likely for the new model if it is based on the iPhone 14.

Update: The new iPhone SE's display will be supplied by Chinese manufacturer BOE, according to reputable display industry analyst Ross Young.

They should repackage the iPhone mini with updated specs.

Why not base it on the 13 mini instead?! It’s still bigger than the current SE, and isn’t redundant with the other 6.1 iPhones… sigh

I was hoping they would base the SE 4 on the iPhone 13 mini. I know the mini was not a huge seller, but there are people (most of my family) that prefer a smaller phone.

So the iPhone SE 4 will have 2 rear cameras, not one like iPhone XR.

Nice.

So, to stick out, the SE will have The Notch, whereas all other iPhones will have moved to the Dynamic Island by then. So that means the Dynamic Island was a hit.

But I fear to think what an SE 4 would cost. Double the price of the old SE's?
Doesn't mean Dynamic Island was a hit. It means they are sticking with the marketing plan to keep it a "premium" feature.
