iPhone SE 4 Could Feature A Bigger OLED Or LCD Display At 6.1-Inches, Expected In 2024
Apple’s budget iPhone SE is expected to gain a refreshed design that looks more like an iPhone SE while also gaining a larger display.
The iPhone XR comparison had led many to assume that Apple would go with a 6.1-inch LCD display, but a new report suggests that might not be the case.
Writing to his Twitter Super Followers, display analyst Ross Young says that Apple itself hasn’t yet decided what display will go into the next iPhone SE. According to him, Apple hasn’t finalized its display plans for the next iPhone SE and is currently weighing up a couple of options.
The first option a 6.1-inch OLED plan from two suppliers, while the second is an LCD part with a size between 5.7 inches and 6.1 inches.
Apple’s iPhone XR used a 6.1-inch LCD screen, but the move to an OLED panel would allow for improved color reproduction and better contrast. It could also allow for HDR content to be displayed on-screen, too.
However, an LCD screen would likely be cheaper for Apple to have built, something that could be a vital part of the equation given the target price for such a device.
No matter what screen Apple chooses, it’s thought that the Home button will be removed. It isn’t clear whether that will also mean that Face ID will be added, however, with some suggesting that Apple could put Touch ID in the power button as it did with the iPad, iPad mini, and iPad Air.
