The third-gen iPhone SE 3 made it to the market in 2022 and ever since then, Apple enthusiasts have been eagerly waiting for the iPhone SE 4 to drop by. Albeit it was earlier rumored to arrive in 2024 (just as we heard about its launch sometime in 2023), the phone is likely to make it to the public in the spring of 2025. The dates are yet to be out, although what’s intriguing is the potential pricing for the iPhone SE 4 (2025). The phone is purportedly priced between $429 and $499 if reports are to be believed.

iPhone SE 4 (2025) is expected to bring iPhone 14-inspired design. If that turns out to be true, we can expect SE4 to blow Android 5G mid-rangers out of the water gasping for air thanks to its design. If that’s not enough, tipster Revegnus on X (formerly Twitter) reports a potential 10% hike on iPhone SE 3 pricing. Again, if that’s true, we could see an iPhone SE 4 launching at $499 although our best bet will be $429 – same as iPhone SE 3.

Although tipster Revegnus doesn’t have a reputation matching the caliber of the likes of Mark Gurman or Evan Blass, he has shared quite a few credible information over the years and we are positive this update is true as well.

So what do we expect from the iPhone SE 4?

If that’s your question, the answer is a lot.

Turns out a recent report highlighted how the iPhone SE 4 will bring an iPhone 14-inspired design to the table. The display tech is likely to upgrade to OLED instead of the inferior LCD panel. Moreover, the display size could see a jump from outdated 4.7” to a whopping 6.1” matching the SE4 with vanilla iPhones.

Moving on, we have the Apple A16 Bionic SoC under the hood as the potential candidate. iPhone SE 3 already got A15 Bionic SoC which makes our previous sentence make sense. If true, the chipset should be able to talk on the majority of chipsets but with a catch. Apple may not want to put the iPhone SE 4’s performance in line with its flagship series. If that’s the case, we are hoping for a slightly mellowed-down A16 Bionic chipset to make it on the iPhone SE 4 which makes sense.

Based on previous reports, we are expecting the iPhone SE 4 to pick up Bluetooth v5.3, Wi-Fi 6, USB-C, and yes, no microSD or headphone jack. The display will be limited to 60Hz even with an OLED upgrade to keep the pricing in control. Apart from that, the iPhone SE 4 will see a similar battery and charging in line with iPhone 14. We are expecting a 12MP single rear camera shooter, again, to keep the pricing in check.
