1/6 In the race for artificial intelligence supremacy among flagship smartphones, Apple appears to be gearing up to outshine its rivals, particularly the Samsung Galaxy S24 and Google Pixel 8 series. Reports from Taiwanese site Economic Daily News, suggest that the upcoming iPhone 16 line will be equipped with an A18 chipset boasting a Neural Engine with significantly more cores than its predecessor, the A17 Pro used in the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max.

Increasing the number of cores in the Neural Engine aligns with Apple's strategy to enhance its AI capabilities significantly. While the exact core count for the A18's Neural Engine remains undisclosed, the A17 Pro featured 16 cores, implying a noteworthy advancement in AI processing for the iPhone 16 series, Techradar reported.  (AP)

While this leak should be taken with caution, expectations are high for the A18 to deliver significantly improved AI capabilities. (HT Tech)

Furthermore, rumors suggest that certain advanced AI features may be exclusive to the iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max, potentially leaving the iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Plus with a less powerful chipset.

Regardless, it appears increasingly likely that this year's Pro models will equip Apple with the hardware needed to rival Samsung and Google in the realm of AI, though the software and additional features remain uncertain.

Anticipation is building as leaked CAD renders of the upcoming iPhone SE 4 have surfaced, providing a sneak peek into what might be Apple's next budget-friendly device. Expected to succeed the iPhone SE (2022), this latest model has been the subject of numerous rumours and speculations in recent months, and the leaked renders add fuel to the excitement.

Modern Design with Notable Omissions

According to a report from 91Mobiles, the CAD renders showcase a modern design that omits the traditional home button, signalling a departure from previous SE models. The display is expected to receive a significant upgrade, potentially measuring 6.1 inches- a notable enhancement compared to the iPhone SE (2022)'s 4.7-inch screen. The presence of a familiar notch, reminiscent of the iPhone 13 and iPhone 14, suggests the inclusion of the Face ID module.

Like its predecessors, the iPhone SE 4 is depicted with a single rear camera, strategically positioned in the top left corner of the back panel. The handset is rumoured to have dimensions of 147.7mm x 71.5mm x 7.7mm, aligning it with the size of the base iPhone 13 and iPhone 14 models.

mobile to buy?

The leaked renders also unveil a USB Type-C port at the bottom edge, accompanied by speaker grilles. The previously rumoured Action button is missing, raising questions about its inclusion in the final design. Contrary to earlier reports speculating a 2025 launch, there are now indications that the iPhone SE 4 could make its debut alongside the iPhone 16 lineup in 2024.

Rumours surrounding the iPhone SE 4's features include the possibility of incorporating the Dynamic Island module and adopting a battery similar to the one found in the base iPhone 14 model. Leaks also suggest that the device will be powered by the A15 Bionic chip, promising improved camera and display capabilities compared to its predecessors. The excitement continues to build as Apple enthusiasts eagerly await official announcements regarding the highly anticipated iPhone SE 4.
