For quite some time, Apple has been rumoured to be working on the third-generation iPhone SE. Despite the different speculations we’ve heard thus far, current evidence shows that the phone is about to start trial production, implying that it will be released very soon. Here are all of the specifics to consider.
Supply-chain sources acquainted with the topic have hinted at the trial manufacturing ahead of the iPhone SE 3 release, which is due early next year, according to a report by the Chinese website IT Home. There’s no news on when this will happen, though.
In addition, the report teases some of the iPhone SE 3’s projected specifications and features. According to reports, Apple will release two iPhone SE 3 models: a normal iPhone SE 3 and a SE 3 Plus with additional RAM and a larger screen. While the basic iPhone SE 3 is said to have 3GB of RAM, the SE 3 Plus is said to have 4GB.
The iPhone SE 3 is likely to use the same single 12MP back camera as the iPhone SE 2. However, the research suggests that the device’s imaging capabilities will be improved. The A15 Bionic chipset with an external X60M 5G baseband processor is expected to power both the iPhone SE 3 and the iPhone SE 3 Plus. As a result, unlike previous 2020 iPhone SE models, the upcoming versions are expected to enable 5G networks.
In terms of pricing, it’s been speculated that Apple could set the prices aggressively in order to appeal to the public. As a result, the iPhone SE 3 variants could retail for $269 (Rs 20,410) to $399 (Rs 30,275) at launch.
According to the report, many vendors are preparing to send the components needed to build the future iPhone SE versions. Furthermore, according to a Reuters article quoting experts at JP Morgan Chase Bank in the United States, the incoming iPhone SE 3 series might entice 1.4 billion Android users and 300 million iPhone users with previous-generation models.
It’s worth noting that the following information is based on recent rumors and has yet to be confirmed by Apple. Take the information with a grain of salt until Apple officially announces specifics about the iPhone SE 3 series in 2022.
