Apple’s iPhone SE series has been hugely popular all thanks to its price that makes getting an iPhone that much more affordable. The model garners huge sales numbers despite its obvious flaws and certain disadvantages compared to its competition. But unlike the main iPhone series that receives an updated model every year, the SE series has not been so consistent. The original iPhone SE was released in 2016 and was discontinued in2018 followed by the name getting resurrected in 2020 with the iPhone SE 2020.
If we expect the pattern above to repeat, we should be expecting the next SE to come in 2024. However, there have been rumours about an update to the series as soon as next year. Obviously, we expect there to be some updates with the release and so here are some expectations we have from the next iPhone SE.
As the main selling point of the SE is being the affordable iPhone, its price should be expected to be around the $400 mark or around Rs 40000 for the Indian Market. Given the increasing prices of smartphones, we should expect a minor price bump compared to earlier models.
Given that the SE series has had the design that the main series has moved on from, the next SE could have the same design as the current one with the home button and a single camera. It could however be the case that the company takes a different route and give the SE the current all-screen design with the notch, streamlining the design of all its smartphones.
Again, following the pattern, the next iPhone should have the A13 or A12 Bionic SoC. The company could take the iPhone 11approach and give it a 720p display. The device will obviously not have any of the new features like Magsafe or HDR display.
The next iteration of the iPhone SE should be released with the iPhone 13 which would be in the 4th quarter of 2021
