According to CAD renders obtained by 91Mobiles, Apple’s next budget-friendly iPhone, the iPhone SE 4, has been revealed. The images show a significant departure from the previous iPhone SE models, which feature a larger notched display and a USB-C port.

From a 4.7-inch LCD with a home button to a larger 6.1-inch all-screen design with a notch, the biggest change is the display. For the first time in an iPhone SE model, the notch is expected to house the TrueDepth camera system for Face ID authentication. Furthermore, the iPhone SE 4 has slimmer bezels, keeping up with current smartphone trends.

Additionally, Apple has adopted a USB-C port to replace the traditional Lightning port on its devices. According to the European Union, all smartphones by 2024 will have a universal USB-C charging port. For those looking for faster charging and wider compatibility, this is a welcome change since the iPhone SE line remained on Lightning.

According to the renders, the iPhone SE 4 will retain a single rear camera. It is not explicitly shown, but rumors suggest the presence of an “Action Button,” possibly a shortcut key that can be customized. In terms of dimensions, the iPhone SE 4 is expected to measure 147.7 x 71.5 x 7.7mm, nearly identical to the iPhone 14. The iPhone 14’s design was also hinted at in previous reports, which corroborates this information.

Apple’s iPhone SE 4 is expected to launch sometime next year, although it could surprise us at its fall event alongside the iPhone 16 series. Apple may be aiming to revitalize the “affordable” iPhone segment with this potential shift in design philosophy.
