Big SETBACK over Apple iPhone SE 4 launch! Shocking for fans (HT Tech)

The expected launch of Apple iPhone SE 4 in 2024 has reportedly been cancelled. (Reuters)

According to analyst Ming-Chi-Kuo," Qualcomm is the biggest winner of Apple’s cancellation of 2024 iPhone SE 4." (Reuters)

"Qualcomm will likely remain the exclusive supplier of baseband chips for 2H24 new iPhone 16 series (vs. market expectations that Qualcomm will start losing iPhone orders in 2024)," he said. (HT Tech)

Apple initially planned to launch its baseband chip in 2024 and let iPhone SE 4 adopt it first, and decide whether to let the iPhone 16 use its baseband chip depending on the development status of iPhone SE 4," he writes in the post. (Apple)

In December 2022, Kuo suggested that Apple will likely cancel or postpone the mass production plan for the 2024 iPhone SE 4. (Reuters)

The reason behind the same was stated to be the consistently lower-than-expected shipments of mid-to-low-end iPhones (e.g., SE 3, 13 mini, and 14 Plus). (HT Tech)

Meanwhile, the iPhone SE 4 was expected to get a design similar to the iPhone XR, according to a leaker Jon Prosser. (Apple)

The phone was said to feature an all-display design like Apple's flagship lineup, with Apple eliminating the Home button in favor of another authentication method, according to a report by MacRumors. (Reuters)

The device was also expected to feature the A16 Bionic chip. (HT Tech)

The iPhone SE 4 was also expected to get a notch display.
