Apple has resumed development of a fourth-generation iPhone SE with a 6.1-inch OLED display and a 5G chip of its own design, according to the latest information shared by reputable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, reports Macrumors. This change came almost two months after Kuo wrote that Apple abandoned its plans to release a new iPhone SE in 2024.
According to the analyst, the new iPhone SE will be equipped with a 5G modem from Apple, with the ability to connect to the 5G range up to 6 GHz. The current iPhone SE already supports 5G, but uses Qualcomm’s Snapdragon X57 chip.
Kuo did not specify when the new iPhone SE will be released, probably the pause with the development of the model will postpone its release, which was planned for early 2024. Apple traditionally presents iPhone SE updates separately from the main line of smartphones. The latest generation of the model was presented in March of last year.
As pointed out by another reputable analyst, Ross Young, the display for the new iPhone SE will be supplied by a Chinese manufacturer BOE.
