Contradicting previous leaks that suggested iPhone SE 4 may come with an LCD display, according to a new tip, the upcoming iPhone SE, the successor to iPhone SE 3, may launch with an OLED display instead of an LCD. According to Display Supply Chain Consultants (DSCC) analyst Ross Young, the smartphone could use an OLED panel. Young’s predictions about Apple products have always been very accurate.
Ross, in a “Super Followers” only tweet wrote that Apple is yet to finalise the design of the iPhone SE 4. The tech giant is likely to replace the rumoured 6.1-inch LCD panel with an OLED counterpart. Ross had earlier mentioned that the next iteration in the iPhone SE lineup will come with LCD screen. The Cupertino, California-based tech giant maker is mulling featuring 5.7 to 6.1-inch LCDs, as well as, 6.1-inch OLED displays from two of its suppliers, says a report by MacRumors.
Previous rumours suggested that the iPhone SE 4 may be identical to the iPhone XR, which was launched in 2018. The original iPhone SE launched in 2016 modified the hardware from the iPhone 5S that was unveiled in 2013. Based on the iPhone 8, the 2022 iPhone SE model was created.
A previous report by news agency Bloomberg said that even as Apple has tested adding Touch ID back to the iPhone, it is unlikely to make a comeback in the near future. According to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, the tech giant has tested in-screen Touch ID for the iPhone and has also considered adding Touch ID to the power button, similar to the iPad Air and iPad mini. However, it is unlikely that either would be launched “in the foreseeable future”, Gurman wrote in his Power On newsletter.
Over the past few years, there have been discussions within Apple about bringing Touch ID back to high-end iPhones. The company has tested in-screen Touch ID and even contemplated putting it on the power button. At this point, I believe Face ID is here to stay and Touch ID won’t be returning to flagship iPhones—at least anytime in the foreseeable future, the Power On newsletter read.
