As Apple is gearing towards the launch of the Phone 13 this year, a leak about the next-generation iPhone SE has surfaced online. While the next iPhone SE is set for launch in 2022, a new leak has revealed that it’ll feature the same 4.7-inch display as the current one. Display analyst Ross Young tweeted some key features of the upcoming 2022 iPhone SE and 2023 iPhone models. According to him, the 2022 iPhone SE will carry the same 4.7-inch display but the 2023 models will feature a 6.1-inch hole-punch display.
Earlier, it was rumored that Apple was working on an “iPhone SE Plus” and was supposed to launch it this year, but recently, Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo tipped that there won’t be any new iPhone in the SE family coming before 2022. The existing iPhone SE carries a 4.7-inch display, which the new leak says will continue to exist in the next version as well. Recently, Young had also said that the iPhone models in the coming years will see a major design change, especially the company opting for a punch-hole display.
2023 Model to Feature 6.1-inch Punch-hole Display
According to the tweet, the Cupertino giant is working on a 6.1-inch version of the iPhone SE. The major design change that it’ll witness will be the punch-hole cutout rather than a notch. It’s not surprising either because Apple is already rumored to be working on a hole-punch design display for the 2022 iPhones 14. So it does make sense that the same design could trickle down to the following year’s iPhone SE as well.
Currently, the hole-punch design can be seen only on Android smartphones and it will be the first time an iPhone will get a punch hole. iPhones still feature a notch in their displays but it is going to be replaced in 2022 with the company releasing the iPhone 14. However, we should also see some design changes to the iPhone SE coming next year. The tipster also suggests an upgraded processor with 5G support.
