The proportions and overall appearance of the iPhone SE in 2022 will most likely remain the same as the 2020 model, but there is some question about the front – will it still have a forehead and chin or will it adopt a notch?
The missing button isn’t a certainty that the next SE will convert from a fingerprint reader to a Face ID, but such features are normally kept in place for testing cases and screen protectors. All of the other buttons are still there, and they’re in the same places as previously. The dimensions of the phone are also the same – 138.4 x 67.3 x 7.3 mm (8.2 mm with the camera bump). This will make it one of the tiniest smartphones available in 2022, and it will most likely be compatible with existing SE cases.
The Apple logo, which has been shifted higher for whatever reason, is the only thing that might create problems (it used to be centred). Apple will be able to squeeze a bigger display on the iPhone SE+ 5G if it adopts a notched design. However, a significant increase in screen size is not predicted until the following generation, with the iPhone SE rumoured to feature a 5.7″ display in 2023/2024.
The model for 2022 is still unknown. Apple is expected to introduce the SE+ with the new iPad Air in March or April, according to rumours, so expect more big leaks shortly.
