When will iPhone SE 3 be released: release date, price, specifications
All about the iPhone SE 3 – specifications, release date and price of the new budget Apple.
The first iPhone SE was introduced by Apple back in March 2016. Initially, many treated the novelty with a fair amount of skepticism. Users did not particularly like the “outdated” design, not the newest stuffing, the small screen and the price. However, all this did not prevent the iPhone SE from becoming one of the most popular smartphones Apple. It was influenced by a noticeable reduction in price. For a long time, the iPhone SE remained not only the most compact, but also the most affordable Apple smartphone.
In the spring of 2020, the second generation iPhone SE came out, and the situation was repeated again. Many berated this device for its secondary appearance and high price. However, judging by sales, the iPhone SE 2 is quite popular.
Now Apple is already working on the third generation iPhone SE. Below we will detail about the next Apple budgetary device, as well as when it will be released.
- Features of the iPhone SE 3
- Display: 4.7 inches, Retina.
- Processor: Apple A14 Bionic
- Memory: 64GB / 128GB / 256GB
- Main camera: 12MP
- Battery: 1800 – 2000 mAh
- Price: from $399
- Release date: March-April 2022.
Initially, several different versions could be found online regarding how the iPhone SE 3 will look. Some claimed that the basis for the new Apple budget phone will be the iPhone XR. However, later these rumors were denied.
According to the latest reports, the iPhone SE 3 will look similar to its predecessor. Simply put, Apple will not dramatically change the design of its new budget smartphone. As before, the basis for it should be the iPhone 8.
This means that the iPhone SE 3 will have large frames around the screen and a Home button with Touch ID scanner. Also, users should not expect an advanced main camera. As before, it should have just one lens.
As for the new form factor, the iPhone SE with thin bezels and without the Home button is expected to be released only in 2023.
If you believe online sources, the iPhone SE 3 should get the already “familiar” LCD screen with a diagonal of 4.7 inches and a resolution of 1334 x 750 pixels. No innovations are expected in this regard.
However, there is a chance that along with the iPhone SE 3, Apple will also show another budget-friendly device. According to rumors it will be based on the iPhone 8 Plus, so the diagonal screen of novelty will grow to 5.5 inches.
The processor, memory and wireless connectivity
The “heart” of the new iPhone SE will be the Apple A14 Bionic chip. It will provide very high performance, especially taking into account the small resolution of the screen. Such a combination, which will be supplemented by 3 or 4 GB of RAM will allow the iPhone SE 3 in various tests with a noticeable lead over competing devices.
However, one of the main features of the updated iPhone SE must be the support for fifth generation networks. According to authoritative analyst Min-Chi Kuo, the next Apple budget phone could become one of the most affordable 5G smartphones on the market. The appearance of such a device should spur operators and accelerate the process of deploying 5G-networks. While this standard is supported in a very small number of countries. And the coverage leaves much to be desired.
Exactly what kind of camera will be installed in the iPhone SE 3, now there is no information. However, analysts do not expect any notable innovations. Most likely, Apple will equip its new smartphone with a slightly modified 12-megapixel module with digital zoom, support for “Night Mode” and a number of software add-ons. Thanks to the latter smartphone will be able to take enough high-quality pictures, especially in good light.
Smartphones from the iPhone SE line have never been distinguished by impressive battery life. The iPhone SE 3 should continue this “tradition”. Supposedly, Apple will install a battery of 1820 mAh in the novelty. The same battery was in the iPhone 8.
However, there is an opinion that Apple engineers will still be able to slightly increase the battery capacity. The increase may be about 5-7%. However, together with the energy-efficient Apple A14 chip such a boost will increase the battery life of the iPhone SE 3 by several dozen minutes.
iPhone SE 3 release date
The iPhone SE 3 will be released in March or April 2022. Several different sources are talking about this at once. It is possible that Apple will show other new products at its spring event. For example, a MacBook Air with an M2 chip.
So far, experts do not see any special prerequisites for Apple to somehow drastically change the cost of its budget smartphones. The small number of changes that are to take place in the iPhone SE 3 speaks in favor of this. In fact, the device will get a slightly modified core and support for fifth-generation networks.
Thus, the base version of the iPhone SE 3 with 64 GB of internal memory should cost $399. It is unlikely to change the price of the top modification. A model with 256 GB of storage, as before, will be available for $549.
Judging by the rumors available now, the iPhone SE 3 will differ from its predecessor only in trifles. The main innovation may be the support for fifth generation networks. In addition, the novelty must get an improved processor and more RAM, so that the iPhone SE 3 will be able to cope with almost any task without any problems.
Yes, the new Apple’s budget phone is unlikely to be called an innovative device. But the smartphone will definitely find its buyer.
