iPhone SE 4 Display Panel Details and Launch Timeline Revealed Ahead of the Launch

The iPhone SE 4 will reportedly feature a 6.1-inch OLED panel supplied by BOE.

  • The iPhone SE 4 smartphone is expected to launch in the year 2024.
  • According to the latest information, it will feature a BOE-manufactured OLED display.
  • This move will help Apple keep the cost in check and offer competitive pricing.


iPhone SE 4 is expected to launch in March 2024, according to the latest reports in the rumour mills. Unlike the regular iPhones, the SE series doesn’t have a fixed schedule and can be launched anytime next year. Notably, Apple launched the first iPhone SE in 2016, the iPhone SE 2 in 2020, and the iPhone SE 5G in 2022. Apart from the launch timeline, the iPhone SE 4 display panel details have also been leaked. Here’s what we know as of now.

iPhone SE 4 Will Reportedly Flaunt an OLED Display

If the report by The Elec is to be believed, the iPhone SE 4 will come with a 6.1-inch OLED panel manufactured by BOE. This means no more sub-standard LCD panels for iPhone SE series fans. While this is an upgrade from LCD panels of the past, it won’t be the same panel as the 6.1-inch OLED panel on iPhone 15 or iPhone 15 Pro, which LG or Samsung manufactures.

However, this move from Apple is logical since the OLED panel manufactured by BOE will cost the tech giant only $40 (~Rs 3,270). In contrast, the panels used on the upcoming iPhone 15 series and OLED iPads by Samsung Display and LG Display cost around $100 (~Rs 8,175). This means the BOE display costs less than half its premium counterparts and will help Apple launch it with a competitive price tag.

The reputable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo recently stated that the iPhone SE 4 would flaunt a proprietary Apple 5G chip. He also confirmed that the phone would feature a 6.1-inch OLED display, which aligns with the latest information. Kuo also confirmed that the upcoming SE-series iPhone would flaunt an iPhone 14-like design with thin bezels. 

Recent rumours have also suggested that the iPhone SE 4 might feature the same chassis as the iPhone 14 and some of its components. This means it might also share some specifications with its more expensive sibling. We can expect the BOE display panel to be an LTPO unit with a 60Hz refresh rate and a display notch.

On the other hand, iPhone 15iPhone 15 PlusiPhone 15 Pro, and iPhone 15 Pro Max are all expected to come with Dynamic Island, per the latest leak. Would you pick the iPhone 15 this year or wait for iPhone SE 4? Let us know in the comment box below.
