The iPhone SE 3 would finally have an A15 chip and a design similar to the SE 2
This is news from the iPhone SE 3. According to a new Japanese report, Apple’s next affordable flagship will carry an A15 chip, unlike the A14 chip announced by previous leaks. On the design side, there should be no big revolutions compared to the current model.
The iPhone SE 3 has nothing official yet, although it should be released in early 2022 according to several sources. However, a lot of information about him has already leaked. The problem is thatthey don’t all agree with each other. Starting with the smartphone processor. Until now, the leakers have agreed to advance that the latter will be powered by an A14 chip. But a new Japanese report contradicts this claim.
Indeed, the iPhone SE 3 would actually embark an A15 chip, according to this new source. Good news for its future owners, who will therefore have to benefit from more advanced performance for a much more affordable price than its cousins, since it would be marketed at 540 dollars. Moreover, this confirms the hypothesis of compatibility with 5G already mentioned in previous leaks.

The iPhone SE3 will have a new SoC but the same design
On the other hand, on the design side, there would be no planned change. The report predicts thatiPhone SE 3 will look exactly like its predecessor. Once again, this confirms that it will be equipped with a 4.7-inch LCD screen, accompanied by its faithful Home button. The famous analyst Ming-Chi Kuo himself agrees, as much for the design as for the arrival of the 5 G in the SE range. In addition, the latter also mentioned the existence of a iPhone SE Plus, with a 5.5 inch screen.
But all this is still very vague. For example, some do not hesitate to say that this SE Plus would finally come replace Mini model of iPhone 14, a version that never really managed to find its audience. As for the release date, the report mentions a start of production in December 2021, for first deliveries during the spring 2022. This assumption is quite plausible, since the first iPhone SE was released in March 2016, while its successor arrived in April 2020.
