It was previously reported that Apple would be ditching the iPhone 13 Mini altogether, but there’s no need to feel too bad about the smaller screen, since there’s still iPhone SE.
Industry chain sources said that Apple is preparing a new iPhone SE3, as to when the launch depends on the specific situation, after all, the current global core shortage, while also overlaying the iPhone 13 production demand.
According to the source, iPhone SE3 may use A14 processor, at the same time compared to the previous configuration is also improved a lot, more in line with the positioning of the small steel gun.
Earlier, analyst Guo Minglu said in a note to investors that Apple plans to launch a new iPhone SE in the first half of 2022 as he previously said, the design of the new iPhone SE will be “broadly the same” as the existing SE, which is based on the iPhone 8.
Mr. Guo said that the new 2022 iPhone SE will support 5G and will include a processor the device will be positioned as the “cheapest 5G iPhone.” Right now the most affordable 5G iPhone is the iPhone 12 Mini, so presumably iPhone SE will be cheaper than the device’s $699 price point.
Rumor has it that the “iPhone SE Plus” has a larger display and Touch ID power button, which Kuo has mentioned in the past, but the larger iPhone SE was not mentioned in this note, and we haven’t heard any new details about it in a while, so it’s unclear if the product has been discontinued yet, Or something that will come later.
Mr Guo also said earlier that Apple was working on a new version of the iPhone 11 with a six-inch LCD and support for Face ID and 5G, a possible reference to the SE, which is said to be a future device due out in 2023.
