The release of the iPhone SE 4 seems a long way off, but the rumor mill keeps coming. Before many analysts said that Apple will not launch the iPhone SE 4 this year, the reason given is that Apple's progress on 5G baseband is far from as fast as expected, perhaps 2025 May be launched.
Later, it was reported that Apple had continued concerns about the OLED quality of new suppliers, resulting in the iPhone SE 4 May be delayed again.
Although there is no definite number, there is a lot of new news about the iPhone SE 4. According to reports, the iPhone SE 4, codenamed "Ghost" internally, will look basically the same as the iPhone 14, so it won't have the curved edges of the iPhone 15, but Apple hasn't finalized the design of the camera bump, which could be a single bump or a module that houses the camera and flash. In addition, the iPhone SE 4 added physical buttons and ports.
Apple ditched the silent dial on the iPhone 15 Pro in favor of an action button that allows users to use the device according to their preferences.Change the action options yourself, as is the case with the iPhone SE 4. Another change is that the iPhone SE 4 also uses a USB-C port.
Analyst Ming-Guo has previously revealed that the design of the iPhone SE 4 will be similar to that of the standard iPhone 14 released last yearHints that the fourth-generation iPhone SE will feature a 6.1-inch OLED display and Face ID.
The third-generation iPhone SE, released in March last year, is equipped with a 4.7-inch LCD display, Touch ID, 5G, 12-megapixel rear camera and A15 bionic chip, and the national version of the price starts at 3,499 yuan.
Previously said that Apple in the 5G baseband progress is not as fast as expected and led to the delay of the iPhone SE 4, industry analysts said that compared with 4G, 5G baseband is more difficult to do, although the hardware design is simple, but with different operators around the world to jointly do signal testing then the process is relatively long.
At a recent seminar for display panel analysts, Yoon Dae-Jeong, a researcher at UBI Research, revealed that BOE's OLED panel for the iPhone seems to have encountered some performance problems, which led Apple to delay the mass production and launch of the iPhone SE 4.
It is reported thatDue to the special specifications of the cheaper LTPS OLED screen required for the iPhone SE 4, Samsung and LG are not interested in it, and boe is expected to become a supplier.However, as things stand, Samsung and LG may rejoin the bidding to provide OLED panels for the iPhone SE 4.
The iPhone SE series is mainly a small screen mobile phone, after observing the small screen market for so many years, it can be found that in the era of large screen mobile phones, there are some users who pursue a good feel of small screen.
However, when the small screen mobile phone is really released after there is no sales, the reason is that users want to continue to see the figure of small screen mobile phones in the era of large screen mobile phones, whether to buy, use or not depends on their own, but can not be without.
The second is limited by the size of the small screen phone (internal space), many configurations can not be done higher, such as battery life, screen and so on. But since there are rumors, it must not be empty wind, iPhone SE 4 will definitely come out, it is just a matter of time.
