Recent leaks from Tipster UNknownZ21 have substantiated the speculations surrounding a design akin to that of the iPhone 14. The upcoming iPhone SE 4 is also slated to incorporate the Action button and USB-C port, features that are on the horizon for the forthcoming iPhone 15 series. This iteration could potentially debut as the initial iPhone SE model equipped with an OLED display and a Face ID system. Nonetheless, Apple appears resolute on retaining a single rear camera setup.
The question of how Apple will manage the pricing of this device, should it indeed derive hardware elements from its larger counterpart, remains unanswered. The expenses tied to Face ID components and OLED panels were influential factors impacting the previous generation, wherein the iPhone SE sported a design reminiscent of the iPhone 8, coupled with an LCD screen. Presently, the launch of four new iPhone models is anticipated in the upcoming month: the iPhone 15, 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro, and 15 Pro Max.
