We are one week away from the next Apple event where we hope to see news such as the iPhone 14, the Apple Watch series 8, among other news. But, leakers remind us that these aren’t the only devices the company is working on. On this occasion, Jon Prosser, the famous leaker with a high hit rate, recently talked about a cell phone that Apple is working on: the fourth generation iPhone SE.
It is no secret to anyone that this phone is on the way (a long way), but Prosser has revealed an important detail that we did not know until now: its design will be similar to the iPhone XR. Said like this, the fourth generation iPhone SE would abandon the continuous design of the series, to use the body of the XR. In his Geared Up podcast, the leaker argues that the iPhone SE will go from a 4.7-inch screen to a 6.1-inch one and ditch the ‘Home’ button to stick with Face ID and the notch.
But all is not so bad; Although the iPhone SE would be much larger than what we are used to, it would be equipped with new advantages. For example, as Prosser mentions, it would be waterproof with IP67 certification and a rear camera of at least 12 megapixels. Likewise, its chip would be of the latest generation; It is expected that at least it will be equipped with the company’s A15 chip, which we already saw in the iPhone 13 and which is expected in some 14 series cell phones.

As for the launch date, the leaker did not risk determining a specific date, but we can get an idea based on the launch of the previous iPhone SE models. The SE 2nd generation was launched in April 2020, the SE 3rd generation also had its launch date in April, two years later (2022). Put like that, we could expect the fourth generation iPhone SE in two years, that is, in 2024.
If so, there is plenty of time left to learn more details about what the next iPhone SE will be. Meanwhile, we must take this information with a grain of salt, since it is part of the rumors and leaks by experts in the field, but there is nothing confirmed by the company.
