Leaker Jon Prosser claims Apple will base its next-generation iPhone SE on the iPhone XR design. Prosser says his prediction is based on new information from his sources.
Appearing on the latest episode of the Geared Up podcast with Andru Edwards and Jon Rettinger (via AppleTrackr), Prosser said that “The SE 4, from what I understand – and I don’t think I’ve said this publicly – is just the iPhone XR.”
The current generation iPhone SE is based on the iPhone 8 and prior iPhone SE models. It features a thick top and bottom display panels, resembling pre-iPhone X iPhone models. All other currently available iPhone models use Face ID, with no Home button.
The iPhone XR had a 6.1-inch LCD display, while the current-gen iPhone SE has a 4.7-inch display, meaning a change like Prosser claims would bring a bigger screen for Apple’s cheapest iPhone.
