5.7 would be nice. The X was 5.8 and loved it.

I'll bet looking at the current trend apple is doing, it's going to launch at $549 with some weird missing key feature and just not be worth it at all. Just like iPad 10th Gen

If they make another phone around the 5.8” mark I’ll head to the store and trade in this 13 on day one.

That size was literally perfect.

6.1 OLED makes almost no sense in the context of the lineup.

Unless Apples actual is to make the SE even more expensive.

I’d love for this to be an XR clone with a 6.1” LCD. Too bad this is rumored for 2024 instead of 2023. I’ll need to replace my XR before then.

LCD in 2024???? Ufff

lcd > cheap rigid oled. decent flexible oleds used in iphones are more than 3x as expensive as rigid. iphone 11 planned rigid oled for regular model but stuck to lcd, theyre just not up to par and look problematic (terrible viewing angles, uniformity, black crush and purple smear)

flexible oled cost may be affordable enough in 2026.

I think some people are affected by PWM so maybe it’s for them.

I don’t think apple would use something to cater to 10% of people. They’d use LCDs for cutting costs or to differentiate the phones in their lineup easier. If anything the PWM issue is just a thing that would come with it but I don’t think that’s their priority

LCD screens are fine. Especially a good quality one

I’m with you there. Not sure how much longer my XR will last but I’ve loved it! Would love an updated replacement.

Hmm that’s interesting, I thought the SE4 would for sure be based on the XR, as it makes the most sense.

The SE was always about retooling an older body style iPhone to save costs. The X/XS/11 Pro were 5.8 inches and are too expensive of a body to retool for the SE, unless they really raise the price. Making an new body for the SE at 5.7 inches would also be costly. The XR/11 body seems like the perfect fit. Especially as the 11 was just dropped from the lineup with the 14’s release.

also, if they wanted to, they could do XR = SE4, then refresh it a year later with dual camera aka SE5 = 11

2016, 2020, 2022. The SE has never been yearly. 2022 is just a 2020 refresh with 5G; an SE 2.5 if you will. Each SE should be a different design. Maybe the 2028 SE will feature the Dynamic Island while the Pro iPhone is all screen.

I hope the new SE will be 6.1”, so there will be room to house a bigger battery. And the 11 and Xr this new device will be based on had amazing battery life. I had both!

Good. Don’t think anyone really waiting for this phone.

Yea and also no one cares about the max lineup
