Apple is said to be working on a 6.1-inch version of the iPhone SE that features a punch hole design rather than a notch. According rumours, Apple’s plan is to introduce this punch hole display in the 2022 flagship models. This is in line with what Young said, as the new iPhone 14 models will come with the major change in design which will also reflect on the iPhone SE models that will be released in 2023.
The punch hole design has been in existence for some time. Android phone makers use it to replace the notch, this makes maximum use of display area and creating much space for the selfie camera. The punch hole design will carry out the same purpose in iPhone.
Though there might be some expected changes in design of the next iPhone SE. We should also expect some changes in the phone’s specifications such as an upgraded processor and 5G support, which Young claims it might be limited to sub-6GHz.
