Anyone who hopes for a new edition of the affordable iPhone SE will be disappointed this year. Apple will not have a real highlight in this price segment for two years. What could this look like? The first images from the computer now give us an impression.
In advance, we would like to summarize the current news status on the iPhone SE and its expected successors, which we reported a good two months ago. As a result, there will only be a small update in 2022, the basic design based on the current 4.7-inch display will be retained. We can therefore only count on a faster Apple chip and possibly a 5G modem. The principle remains New wine in old bottles.
Apple still needs time: iPhone in the new design not until 2023
Only in two years (2023) wants Apple then touch the shape of the iPhone SE. What we currently already know about this from the rumour mill: A full-format screen (6.1 inches) and a “pinhole camera” dominate the view. According to insiders at Apple, the alternative to the notch (display notch) will celebrate its premiere a year earlier in the successor to the iPhone 13. Logical and understandable when the successor to the iPhone SE benefits from it a little later and comes up with a small hole in the display for the selfie camera.
So you have to wait two years. Anyone who wants to get an idea of such a redesigned iPhone SE in the meantime has the opportunity to do so now. The young concept artist “apple lab” from Ukraine provides us with this. His design for an iPhone SE (2023) obviously borrows brand new design features from the latest Apple innovations.
Design for the iPhone SE
The 6.1-inch display is set in a white border, the iMac 2021 sends its regards. Above the edge of the housing is also the earpiece, which was previously located within the notch. The so-called “punch hole” for the camera is set in the middle. Looks better than comparable solutions, which usually ban the small display hole to the left corner of the screen.
When it comes to colors, the artist is based on Apple’s current taste for pastel tints – violet shouldn’t be missing either. The back houses a single camera lens. Nice and big and therefore also bright. Further lenses are ruled out and are not necessary with the budget model.
