Rumors suggest that a fresh iteration of the iPhone SE could be released in 2025, potentially drawing inspiration from the design elements of the forthcoming iPhone 16, as disclosed by leaker Majin Bu on X (formerly known as Twitter).
The tweet hints at the prospect of the upcoming iPhone SE incorporating the Dynamic Island feature, initially introduced in the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, and sporting a solitary rear camera.
Speculation points towards the iPhone SE 4 mirroring the aesthetics of the ongoing iPhone 16 development, with dimensions akin to those of the iPhone XR.
However, the iPhone 16 is anticipated to feature Dynamic Island and two rear cameras, according to reports from Majin Bu. However, Majin Bu cautions against placing too much trust in the information shared, citing uncertainty.
Previously, speculation suggested that Apple had halted development on the iPhone SE 4 due to concerns about its proprietary 5G chip. Nonetheless, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has hinted at the possibility of Apple resurrecting the project, potentially incorporating a 6.1-inch OLED display and an in-house 5G chip to replace Snapdragon 5G modems.
While Kuo has not specified a release date for the new iPhone SE, historical trends suggest a potential unveiling in March 2024 or later, considering Apple's habit of introducing a new SE model every two years. As time progresses, additional leaks may provide insight into the project's status.
