The first covers are also starting to be produced for the fourth-generation iPhone SE, probably based on CAD drawings that have been leaked in recent months.

In the past few hours, some photos have been published on Weibo in which a cover for this alleged iPhone would be shown that could sanction both the definitive abandonment of the iPhone 8 design (in turn derived from that of the iPhone 6 of 2014) and the end of Touch ID, the biometric authentication system through fingerprint recognition that Apple has replaced in recent years with Face ID.

An iPhone 14, but with one less camera. This could simplify the description of the design of the fourth generation of the iPhone SE, which, according to rumors, will not be launched by Apple before 2025. It should not be excluded, however, that the announcement of this iPhone could take place by the end of the year, which is conceivable given that the production of third-party covers would have already started.

The three photos show both the front and the back and sides. On the back, you see a space that should house the single camera, which is now customary for iPhone SEs. On the front of the model on which the cover is applied is visible the notch, the notch that houses the cameras and the TrueDepth sensors for three-dimensional face recognition. On the side are the texts for adjusting the volume and the space for the switch for muting ringtones.

No action button and no Dynamic Island, therefore, as had been hypothesized in recent months. The display, on the other hand, is expected to be a 6.1-inch OLED as well as a Type-C charging connector. The dimensions are expected to be 147 x 71.5 x 7.7mm, almost identical to the iPhone 14 which is 146.7mm tall, 71.5mm wide and 7.8mm thick.

The current iPhone SE, launched in March 2022, has a 4.7-inch LCD display, Touch ID, support for 5G networks, a 12-megapixel rear camera, and the Apple A15 Bionic processor. In Italy, the iPhone SE retails from €559 in a 64GB version. For the 128GB version you need 629 euros and for the one with 256GB the price is 759 euros.
