These reports appear more credible given that a fresh report from ITHome claims that Apple is about to start a new trial production phase for the iPhone SE 3. Not only that, multiple manufacturers are preparing to send iPhone SE 3 components.
There have been a lot of reports about Apple’s third-generation iPhone SE recently, and most of them agree that it will be released in the first quarter of 2022.
Despite the fact that the iPhone SE 3 isn’t expected to be released until next year, we’ve already heard a lot of new speculations and leaks regarding how the next iPhone SE will appear.
If this is true, that means we should expect the 2022 iPhone SE to feature the same 4.7-inch Retina HD display, a single 12MP camera on the back, and a Home button with Touch ID at the front.
Unfortunately, many rumors suggest the iPhone SE 3 won’t have any big design changes. Instead, many leakers, including Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, say that the new iPhone SE will look very similar to the current-generation iPhone SE, which already looks like the older iPhone 8.
On the inside, rumors say the new iPhone SE will feature the A15 Bionic chip, which is the same processor Apple uses on the iPhone 13 lineup. Additionally, the iPhone SE’s said to feature 5G connectivity to make it more future-proof.
As we mentioned before, the third-generation iPhone SE is said to be released in the first quarter of 2022. So if Apple plans to repeat what it did with the current iPhone SE, we should expect the new iPhone to come out somewhere around April in 2022 and start at $399 for the 64GB model.
Other than next year’s iPhone SE, other rumors point out that Apple’s already working on another iPhone SE that’ll have a similar design to the iPhone XR with a bigger screen and better cameras. This rumored iPhone SE is set to be released in 2023 or later.
