Last year, Apple launched the iPhone SE 2020 model in the first half of the year and four 5G version iPhone 12 series flagship phones in the second half of the year. So what will Apple do this year? The new iteration of the iPhone 12 is definitely not suspenseful. Plus, it will still be unveiled in the second half of the year. As you understand, regardless of the new features, it won’t be cheap. However, we guess Apple has a new trump card. We think the iPhone SE Plus will be uncovered in the coming months. It will be way cheaper, support 5G connectivity, and have many other advantages.
Even its name suggests that Apple doesn’t design it as the second-gen smartphone of this series. We mean it will be basically based on the last year’s iPhone SE.
But what is more eye-catching is that the new iPhone SE Plus may adopt a 6.1-inch notch screen design. Its size and visual effects should be better than that of the 4.7-inch iPhone SE or even the 5.4-inch iPhone 12 mini. At the same time, the new machine may also support Touch ID, cancel the facial recognition function, and use the fingerprint recognition on the side power button.
The hardware of the iPhone SE Plus may also be upgraded. We have heard it will sport Apple’s most powerful A14 Bionic chip. The latter is more powerful than the A13 on the iPhone SE last year. This SoC makes a tough competition to all high-end chips on the market.
More importantly, the chip supports dual-mode 5G function, which is not available on the A13. So the iPhone SE Plus should be a dual-mode 5G phone. If so, the iPhone SE Plus will be more outstanding than the best-selling iPhone 11.
iPhone SE Plus Other Features And Price
In other aspects, it was revealed that the iPhone SE Plus may adopt a front and rear single-camera camera system, with a 12-megapixel rear camera and a 7-megapixel selfie camera on the front. However, the highlight is the support for OIS (optical image stabilization) and 6 portrait light effects. Although the experience may not be as rich as the triple-camera and quad-camera modules offer, under the excellent algorithm of iOS, there should still be good shooting effects. This iPhone may also support IP67 waterproof and dustproof. And it will come in three classic colors of black, red and white.

Finally, the iPhone SE Plus may start at US$499. If this price is true, it is basically the same as last year’s iPhone SE pricing. Thus, there is no price increase but the main selling points are upgraded. In other words, we are dealing with a more cost-effective smartphone. Moreover, the price is more affordable than the current Apple’s cheapest 5G phone, the iPhone 12 mini.
