iPhone SE 4 could launch in 2025 with a new camera design

It’s still a bit too early for 2025 iPhone rumors.

Apple launched the third-generation iPhone SE – the iPhone SE 3 back in 2022 that kept the same outdated design language of its predecessor – the iPhone SE 2, which is essentially the iPhone 8.

So, an upgrade is long overdue. A recent tweet from a renowned leaker suggests the iPhone SE 4 will bring more design changes than expected.  

Rumors about Apple’s next iPhone SE have been circulating the web for a while, indicating several improvements design and hardware-wise – the addition of a USB-C port like the iPhone 15 series, an Action Button, and a design similar to the iPhone 14

In a recent post on X/Twitter, the leaker Majin Bu stated that the fourth-generation iPhone SE will bring the iPhone 14’s design language alongside the Dynamic Island and a single rear camera – you will not find either of the features in the standard iPhone 14 models. 

Bu even follows that up by stating the iPhone SE 4 “could have a design very similar to that of the current iPhone 16 still in development.”

According to Majin Bu’s tweet, the iPhone SE 4’s dimensions will be similar to the iPhone XR, with a height of 5.94 inches (150.9 mm), a width of 2.98 inches (75.7 mm), and a depth of .33 inches (8.3 mm).

In terms of design, the fourth-generation iPhone SE will sport the usual single-camera setup on its back, and apparently, Apple will add the Dynamic Island, bringing more modernity to the the iPhone SE 4’s design. 

However, the rear camera module design could be similar to the iPhone 16, which is still under development.

Back in September last year, another renowned Apple analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo, stated that the iPhone SE 4 would come with a 6.1-inch OLED panel.

More importantly, Kuo believes the device will debut with Apple’s in-house 5G modem chip, replacing the Snapdragon 5G modem chips, currently equipped on the regular models. 

Apple will likely not finish the development of its in-house 5G modem chip by 2024, but a 2025 window is likely, which is the same year Majin Bu speculates to be the launch year for the iPhone SE 4. 

Either way, try to take these iPhone SE 4 rumors with a pinch of salt.

    A single camera for an SE would still not be a good idea, even if it is rumored to be 48 MP. It would likely still leave no room for stuff like Night Mode (such an exclusion would be inexcusable at this point) and the quality won’t be up to par like those models with 2 or more cameras. And I don’t like the idea of Dynamic Island because it will always be on.

      Hey there, thanks for the comment! Thankfully, advancements in camera tech and Apple’s software, optimization could enhance performance, including Night Mode. Dynamic Island aims to provide an interactive UI experience, potentially offering customization options to address “always on” worries. Apple’s history of seamless hardware-software integration suggests these changes could improve user experience. Stay tuned for our coverage of the iPhone SE 4 launch.
