With the release of the iPhone 13 series, the official ranking of iPhones from low to high is iPhone SE 2, iPhone 11, iPhone 12 mini/12, and iPhone 13. The SE model with the classic design has the front fingerprint sensor. This seems to be attractive for some consumers. From the current proceedings, it appears that Apple will not give up on this series. According to the latest report, the iPhone SE 3 will be Apple’s last mobile phone with an LCD display. This means those iPhone users that detest OLED displays will have few options left.
Earlier reports claim that the iPhone SE 3 is still the iPhone 8 model. This suggests that it will use a 4.7-inch screen as well as the front Touch ID. However, the latest rumor claims that this device will be based on the iPhone XR with a side fingerprint sensor. Of course, there is no ruling out the possibility of Face ID on this one.
In order to increase competitiveness, Apple plans to switch to the A15 processor for the iPhone SE 3, while adding support for 5G networks. In terms of pricing, the price of this device will be consistent with the previous iPhone SE 2.
Apple to improve on the iPhone SE 3
The market performance of the iPhone SE 2 is far from impressive. Many customers did not appreciate the screen (size and display ratio), camera, charging, etc. They were nowhere near what a 2020 smartphone should have. Nevertheless, recent reports claim that the iPhone SE 3 will not follow the same path. According to JP Morgan Chase, Apple will bring a new iPhone SE 3 model in 2022. The company will not only improve the processor, it will also change the design.
Analysts said that due to the global hot sales of the iPhone 11 series, Apple will introduce the appearance of the iPhone 11 for the iPhone SE 3 model. The screen will be upgraded to a 6.1-inch LCD notch display. This is the first time that Apple has equipped the iPhone SE series with a comprehensive screen design. The reports on the screen are quite many (some say iPhone XR while others say iPhone 11) but one thing is certain, it will use a larger screen.
At the same time, the camera will also use the same configuration as the iPhone 11. It will come with a 12-megapixel dual-camera solution with a 120° ultra-wide-angle lens. This camera will offer a much better camera experience and it also supports optical image stabilization.
