Apple officially released its latest “budget” smartphone, iPhone SE 3. The company does not usually reveal the capacity of its batteries. Nevertheless, after sales of its devices, a disassembly of the smartphone could reveal the battery. Many people are looking forward to the battery capacity of the iPhone SE 3. Judging from the preemptive disassembly, the capacity is not very large. The disassembly of this smartphone reveals that the iPhone SE 3 uses a 2018 mAh battery. The previous generation comes with an 1821 mAh battery. Even with all the software optimizations, this battery capacity is just too small. Users will obviously suffer from low battery issues. Users are already regretting purchasing this device…could this device be a hit or a joke?
The description on Apple’s official website is that compared with the previous generation, the new iPhone SE has longer battery life. It comes with 2 hours more video playback, and 10 hours more audio playback. In addition, this simple disassembly also confirmed that the iPhone SE 3 has 4GB of built-in memory. The previous generation comes with only 3GB of RAM.
The new iPhone SE 3 is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon X57 5G chip. However, this chip does not appear on Qualcomm’s website and maybe a new product customized for Apple. The 5G iPhone SE 3 only supports sub-6GHz and does not support millimeter-wave 5G.

The biggest upgrade point of the iPhone SE is the A15 Bionic chip, which uses TSMC’s 5nm process and consists of 2 high-performance cores and 4 energy-efficient cores. It integrates a 4-core graphics processor and a 16-core neural network engine. The most powerful model in the same gear.
