    Apple iPhone SE 4 can feature an OLED display panel instead of an LCD panel, (FRONT PAGE TECH (YouTube Channel) )

    iPhone SE 4 could end up being a rebadged iPhone XR with a new Apple chip – we have already known that for a while. An iPhone XR clone doesn't seem interesting enough for users of modern iPhone users but Apple could be willing to spice things up. Even though the iPhone SE 4 may have a body of the iPhone XR, Apple is willing to upgrade the panel to something new. If the boys at Cupertino can manage the expenses, the iPhone SE 4 may end up with an OLED display.

    Ross Young from DSCC had previously said that the 2024 iPhone SE will come with a larger 6.1-inch LCD display, just like the iPhone XR. However, he now says that there might be a consideration for an OLED display of varying sizes. In fact, it is said that Apple could consider up to a 6.1-inch OLED display, or a smaller 5.7-inch LCD display. Since the body is expected to hold a 6.1-inch display, Apple might be settling for the bigger panels.

    iPhone SE 4 with an OLED display?

    With an OLED display in the talks, it is expected that Apple could consider the body of the iPhone 12 for the iPhone SE 4, the former expected to be phased out in 2024. The iPhone 12 also has a 6.1-inch OLED display and with its flat side design, it can fit in perfectly with the rest of Apple's product lineup.

    Not sure which
    mobile to buy?

    On the other hand, putting an OLED display in the iPhone XR's body could drive up the prices of the iPhone SE 4, which will already have a new 5G chip from Apple to accommodate. Hence, the iPhone SE 4 may not be as affordable as its predecessors.

    So far, we know that the iPhone SE 4 will be based on the iPhone XR and that could mean a single 12MP rear camera, a Face ID system for biometric verification, a bigger capacity battery, and possibility of a USB-C port for charging. Since it will come in 2024, it could use either Apple's A16 Bionic chip, or could use the A18 chip expected to be used in the iPhone 16.
