Apple’s iPhone SE is basically the company’s answer to creating an affordable iPhone. As such, it’s not surprising that it comes with the latest design or features, with Apple instead opting to reuse the iPhone 8’s design in which the phone still continued to feature the use of a physical home button.
However, that could change in 2023. According to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, he claims that Apple will be launching iPhone SE models in both 2022 and 2023, except that the 2022 model will be the last model to come with a home button and that the 2023 model will feature a larger display, bigger than that of the current iPhone SE’s 4.7-inch display.
The analyst also claims that the phone will come with slightly more RAM, where it will be increased from 3GB of RAM to 4GB of RAM. This is actually not the first time we’re hearing about an iPhone SE with a larger display. Analyst Ross Young had previously suggested that the larger iPhone SE was originally planned for 2023, but had been pushed to 2024.
However, according to Kuo, he believes that the device could still be on track for a launch in 2023, but given that we’re still two years away, we’ll have to wait and see. In the meantime, Apple’s next iPhone SE is expected to arrive in the first quarter of 2022 and will be the first of the SE models to support 5G.
