Apple’s iPhone SE will adopt the same design as its iPhone XR in the fourth generation

As leaker Jon Prosser says, who is relying on fresh information from his sources, Apple will base the upcoming iPhone SE on the design it used for the iPhone XR.

In the most recent episode of the Geared Up podcast with Andru Edwards and Jon Rettinger (via AppleTrackr), Prosser asserts that “The SE 4, from what I understand-and I don’t think I’ve said this publicly-is just the iPhone XR.”

The current third-generation iPhone SE, released earlier this year, continues to have high top and bottom display bezels, unlike Apple’s other iPhones, as it is modelled after the iPhone 8 and previous iPhone SE. A hypothetical switch to the iPhone XR design would spell the end of the iPhone’s home button because Face ID is currently a standard feature on all other iPhones.

The shift would also result in a larger screen size for Apple’s most affordable iPhone because the iPhone XR, which is no longer available in Apple stores, has a 6.1-inch LCD display while the current iPhone SE has a 4.7-inch display.

Ross Young, a consultant for the display industry and a trustworthy source of knowledge on upcoming Apple products, has provided the only other verifiable rumour regarding the new iPhone SE.

According to Young, a fourth-generation iPhone SE with a larger 5.7-inch display might be released by Apple as early as 2023. However, he did not specify whether this model would have the Home button and top and bottom bezels or use a notched screen with Face ID.
