Apple has an affordable iPhone in the form of iPhone SE and the company is now gearing up to launch a third-generation model. Ahead of the device getting official, several details have already been leaked online.
Now, a new report claims that the new Apple iPhone SE, which is said to come with support for 5G connectivity, could go official sometime in March or April this year at an Apple event.
According to the report from Mark Gurman in Power On newsletter for Bloomberg, Apple is expected to host its first major event of this year sometime in March or April, and similar to previous events, this one will also be conducted virtually.
Reports says the upcoming iPhone SE could get launched at this upcoming event from the tech giant and will apparently be the focus of the event. Apple has a track record of launching new products at an event in March or April so the event is likely to happen.
Based on the previous leaks and reports, the iPhone SE 2022 will be similar to the model available right now in terms of design but will arrive with better specifications. It will look like an iPhone 8 but will feature upgrades in terms of internals.
The phone may come with a 4.7-inch Retina HD LCD display and will also feature a Home button with a fingerprint sensor embedded. It is likely to be the last Apple smartphone to come packed with an LCD display panel and a home button.
It comes with the Apple A15 processor along with 3GB of RAM while there could also be a Plus variant that will pack 4GB of RAM. The chipset also brings support for 5G connectivity to the phone. There will still be a 12-megapixel single camera sensor on the back with improved photography features.
A recent estimate from J.P. Morgan claims that the upcoming iPhone SE could lure nearly 1.4 billion low to mid-range Android phone users as well as about 300 million older iPhone model users.
