iPhone XR logoApple’s iPhone for the small purse, the iPhone SE, has appeared in the classic outfit with a home button and black bars at the top and bottom of the screen since it was launched around 6 years ago. Now, after three SE generations, some movement seems to be coming in. According to a well-known leaker, the 4th generation iPhone SE should slip into the guise of the iPhone XR and thus appear for the first time with Face ID instead of Touch ID and a home button. And the display size should also be increased significantly.

iPhone SE 4 gets design of iPhone XR

Apple’s cheapest option in the iPhone product portfolio, the iPhone SE, is about to get a completely new design. It’s not entirely new, since it’s already known from previous iPhone models, but it’s still a big leap by SE standards. If you believe the words of the well-known leaker Jon Prosser (via Geared Up Podcast), the next iPhone SE should no longer have a home button for the first time. Instead, it should come with a full-surface screen and display notch (“notch”) for Face ID and camera.

The iPhone XR from 2018 is said to be the inspiration for the design, which also leads Prosser to assume that Apple will give the fourth SE a 6.1-inch screen instead of a 4.7-inch display. The current iPhone SE of the third generation is still based on the design language of the iPhone 8, which with the update – should it happen – would probably finally be a thing of the past. There is also talk of an LCD display and not an OLED screen and a larger battery thanks to the larger case.

When and if the new iPhone SE will even come onto the market in the form described is still in the stars. However, Prosser has often been correct in his forecasts in the past. We think a date in spring 2024 is possible here, since Apple has recently let two years elapse between the release of new SE models. The last iPhone SE (3rd gen.) was released in March of this year.
