Apple iPhone SE 4’s leaked case renders indicate a major design overhaul

Could get the action button too!

The grapevine has been buzzing with leaks and speculation about Apple's fourth-gen iPhone SE, supposedly on the horizon for a 2025 debut. The most recent leaks have come in the form of alleged case renders that have surfaced online. The transparent protective cases hint at a major design revamp, featuring a display notch for the selfie camera and Face ID sensors, along with a cutout for a single rear camera.

Leaker Majin Bu has dropped some sneak peeks of an iPhone SE 4 case on X, teasing us with potential upgrades. It looks like we might get a bigger screen and a sleek notch housing the selfie camera and Face ID sensors, taking a page from the iPhone 13's book. If these leaks pan out, this could be the first iPhone SE to ditch the Touch ID and home button.

The leaked case also spills the beans on a rumoured 48-megapixel camera sensor on the back, complete with an LED flash and microphone. The camera setup looks similar to the iPhone XR's design. On the left side of the phone, you'll spot the volume rockers, with a mysterious cutout above them. This could be home to the rumoured action button, a feature replacing the traditional mute switch. If you're wondering where you've seen this before, it's currently in the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max. 

Earlier reports hinted at a 6.1-inch OLED panel for the iPhone SE 4. Word on the street is that BOE will be the supplier for this OLED display. The phone is also expected to pack Apple's in-house 5G modem chip and feature a USB Type-C port for charging. Looks like Apple's cooking up quite the tech feast with this one!
