Rumors about the iPhone are constant. According to Display Supply Chain Consultants (DSCC) analyst Ross Young, the fourth-generation iPhone SE will have a 6.1-inch LCD display with a “notch” cutout at the top of the display.
Young said he had lowered his expectations for the fourth-generation iPhone SE in an interview with MacRumors. A new iPhone SE model with a 5.7- to 6.1-inch LCD display and a hole-shaped cutout for the front-facing camera is expected to be released by Apple in 2024, according to Young, who has a very excellent track record of offering insights into the company’s plans.
The Dynamic Island will be present on all four of the main iPhone models available in 2024, if the device is released at that time. In retrospect, this information may have hinted that Apple was considering including the Dynamic Island in the fourth-generation iPhone SE. Young’s most recent information, though, appears to rule this scenario out.
Young’s updated prediction now asserts that the gadget will have a 6.1-inch display with a notch. It is unknown if the iPhone SE’s notch will have a TrueDepth camera array to support Face ID like other iPhone models. According to some rumours, the iPhone SE won’t include Face ID and will instead remain with Touch ID like earlier models to save money.
With the switch to an all-screen design, the device’s bottom bezel will no longer have room for a capacitive Touch ID Home button. A Touch ID Side button, similar to the ones found on the iPad Air and iPad mini, is reportedly being added by Apple to the iPhone SE, according to a number of reports, including information from MyDrivers and Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.
Although the size of the fourth-generation iPhone SE’s notch is unknown, it appears likely that it will be smaller than the one on the iPhone XR if the smartphone does not include parts like a dot projector for Face ID because Touch ID is available.
According to the Chinese website MyDrivers and the leaker Jon Prosser, the iPhone SE is about to adopt an iPhone XR-style design that would do away with the Home button. Since Apple’s “SE” products up to now have always utilised the designs of more dated devices, the change is probably coming.
The 6.1-inch LCD panel on the iPhone XR led Ming-Chi Kuo to claim that Apple was developing a smaller iPhone SE with this display size. Thus, Young’s most recent assertion appears to support these previous rumours and contribute to the formation of a clearer picture of what to anticipate from the design of the next iPhone SE.
