2024 iPhone SE 4 to get cancelled or postponed: Ming-Chi Kuo
Apple might cancel or postpone the mass production plan for the 2024 iPhone SE 4, suggested noted analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.
Apple might cancel or postpone the mass production plan for the 2024 iPhone SE 4, suggested noted analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. The reason for this night be the lower-than-expected shipments of mid-to-low-end iPhones.
Apple launched the 3rd generation iPhone SE earlier this year. However, its sales were lower than expectation. So, this has caused Apple to cancel or postpone its plan for its successor early.
Earlier reports has also suggested that the tech giant Apple could delay the iPhone SE 4’s (4th generation) release to 2024. Now, however, as per the analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple’s upcoming iPhone SE may never release or its production could be postponed to a further date.
Kuo revealed that as per his latest survey, Apple may cancel or postpone the mass production plan for the 2024 iPhone SE 4 due to lower-than-expected shipments of mid-to-low-end iPhones.
He stated that iPhones like the iPhone SE 3, iPhone 13 mini, and iPhone 14 Plus all had lower shipment numbers.
Furthermore, the 2024 iPhone SE 4 was expected to get a full-screen design, finally. But this design change may lead to an increase in the cost of production and further make its selling price high.
Owing to these reasons, Apple may reconsider the positioning and return on investment for the SE 4 and then come to a decision of either postponing or canceling the release.
If the iPhone SE 4 gets canceled it may allow Apple to cut down on unnecessary new product development expenses which may further help the company deal with the forecasted 2023 recession.
iPhone SE 4 specifications
Apple iPhone SE 4 was so far said to bring a design change. However, the design could be similar to the existing non-Pro iPhone models. Rumors revealed that the SE 4 may look something like the iPhone XR.
It was said to have a 6.1-inch LCD or OLED display with a big notch on top. The display’s resolution was said to be only 720p, which would be a major letdown, as per 2024 standards.
Since the release was said to happen two years later, it was expected to pack the Apple A16 or A15 Bionic chipset. The same chipset that powers the iPhone 14 Pro/iPhone 14.
