According to Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple has restarted the iPhone SE 4 production. As per the information, the company has restarted the iPhone SE 4 and will adopt an in-house 5G baseband chip. The significant decline in Qualcomm’s Apple orders in the foreseeable future is a foregone conclusion. This reversal comes nearly 2 months after Apple had abandoned its plans to release a new iPhone SE in 2024.
iPhone SE 4 Specifications [Expected]
The expected specifications are – a 6.1-inch OLED display instead of an LCD, a thinner display with a modern design. Under the hood the new iPhone SE 4 will be powered with Apple’s custom-designed 5G baseband chip produced by a 4nm process (similar to 5nm) and will only support Sub-6GHz.
Once the SE 4 starts using Apple’s 5G baseband chip, the move will benefit Apple’s hardware gross margin. Qualcomm will suffer huge loss because Qualcomm’s Apple orders will decline significantly as future iPad and Apple Watch will also abandon Qualcomm’s modem in next 2-3 years.
iPhone SE 4 Launch Date
The expected launch of the iPhone SE 4 is in the first half of 2024.
