Today, TF International Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, well-known for information and leaks about upcoming Apple innovations, said that Apple will not update the iPhone SE series in the first quarter of next year.
The upcoming iPhone SE 3 will receive a 6-inch screen and Touch ID
The report indicated that iPhone 12 smartphone camera supplier Yujingguang had lower revenue in October due to increased competition, and that competition will intensify further in 2021. analysts predict Yujingguang’s order volume will fall from 50% for iPhone 12 to 30% for iPhone 13.
The analyst also confirmed that the iPhone 13 lineup will have four models that will update the current models of the iPhone 12 line. As for the iPhone SE 3, the smartphone should support 5G networks, the screen size will be increased to 6.06 inches. The main camera will become dual, while the smartphone will receive a Touch ID fingerprint scanner, the location of which is currently unknown.
Presumably, the fingerprint scanner can move to the side of the smartphone, since if Touch ID remains at the bottom of the enlarged screen on the front panel, this will lead to an increase in the size of the case.
Apple will launch a new iPhone SE Plus next year
Previously, there were reports that Apple will not stop at the iPhone 12 series. The company is planning to release another “affordable” version of the iPhone SE next year. According to reports, the name of this phone could be iPhone SE Plus. The rumors claim that Apple will include the Touch ID buttons to reduce costs.
Tianfeng Securities analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo, believes that the new iPhone SE will be able to reduce the overall price. According to him, this smartphone will come with a 5.5-inch or 6.1-inch screen and continue to use an LCD Display. The speculations so far believe that it will use the same case as the iPhone XR or iPhone 8.
The main selling point of this device will probably be the A14 Bionic processor. Furthermore, Ming-Chi Kuo also said that Apple has postponed the launch of the new iPhone SE to the second half of next year.
