After several rumors about a future iPhone SE 4, it seems this entry-level iPhone will be released in 2025, as Apple just secured its first OLED supplier. According to IT Home, citing information from ZDNet Korea, BOE is the first manufacturer to enter this device’s supply chain.

After the disappointing launch of the iPhone SE 3, which was expected to turn a billion Android users into switchers thanks to 5G capability, at least this new entry-level iPhone will look like an iPhone 14. With a 6.1-inch OLED display, shipments will be up to 15 million units.

According to ZDNet Korea, Samsung was supposed to be the first display supplier of the iPhone SE 4, but Apple and the South Korean company couldn’t agree on the display’s price. Samsung wanted to charge $30, but Apple wanted $25. BOE, on the other hand, seems to have agreed with these terms.

This change in the supply chain is also good for Apple, which wants to rely less on Samsung. Another possible display supplier is Tianma, but the manufacturer hasn’t met Apple’s high-quality display standards.

Previously, it was rumored that Apple would only launch a new iPhone SE 4 if it could develop its own 5G modems. While this project has been pretty much canceled as Apple focuses on its partnership with Qualcomm, Cupertino has decided to launch a new device in 2025.
