- The third generation of the SE line will see big upgrades, according to new reports.
- The A15 chip rumored to be used in this year’s iPhone lineup may also be in the 2022 SE.
- A hole-punch display is possible, if previous rumors are to be believed.
This new iPhone SE will be the third-generation of the iPhone SE line — and is rumored to launch during the first half of 2022. It’s rumored that the device will feature 5G support and will have the same 4.7 inch display as the current second generation model. Further, it has also been report that the device will also feature the A15 chip that’s rumored to be used in the upcoming flagship iPhone.
These reports come from respected industry analyst Ming-Chi Kuo (reliability: 80.95%) and DigiTimes. Both reports from both parties claim that this third-generation iPhone SE will launch within the first six months of 2022.
Unsurprisingly the SE 3 will also apparently include 5G, which would be an appreciated upgrade, but many other aspects sound like they won’t be changing much. As well as sporting the same design as its predecessor, the iPhone SE 3 will also supposedly have a 4.7-inch LCD screen, like the last model. That’s despite the rest of Apple’s iPhone range moving to OLED.
It has also rumored that this year‘s iPhone SE upgrade will be minor compared to the substantial upgrade which will come later down the line. It’s rumored that a punch-hole display design will be used in the iPhone for the first time with the iPhone SE line.
