Last year, Apple introduced their second-gen iPhone SE which came with a 4.7-inch display. It turns out Apple might not be deviating from the display size because according to a tweet by Ross Young of DCSS, that will be the same display size that Apple will be introducing to 2022’s iPhone SE refresh.
According to the tweet, Apple will be keeping the 4.7-inch display, although oddly enough the company will apparently be calling the handset the iPhone SE Plus. Apple typically reserves the “Plus” moniker for its larger iPhones, or rather they used to until they changed the naming scheme to “Pro” and “Pro Max”.
We now hear the next LCD iPhone will be introduced in 2022 and called the SE Plus with the same 4.7" LCD as the 8 along with 5G. We hear the iPhone SE3 with a 5.7" – 6.1" LCD is now pushed to 2024. https://t.co/9gxiAAk8Yi

Young claims that the 2022 iPhone SE is expected to feature support for 5G, so it seems that 5G will be the only upgrade for the phone. Also, Young says that the phone will continue to use LCD so if you were hoping to see Apple introduce an OLED iPhone SE model, that will not be happening anytime soon.
However, this isn’t a bad thing as it does help to keep prices low, so if you’re in the market for a relatively affordable iPhone, then this could be worth looking forward to. There is no mention of when the phone will be launched, so we’ll have to wait and see.
