iPhone SE 3, the successor to iPhone SE (2020), may not launch this year. As per a tipster, the purported iPhone SE 3 could be scheduled for launch in 2022. New information regarding the display specifications of the yet-unannounced iPhone SE 3 has also been leaked online. Apple may also end up calling the smartphone iPhone SE (2022), given the last two models’ nomenclature. Past leaks suggest that the budget-friendly next-generation iPhone may come without a home button.
Tipster Ross Young tweeted that the next LCD iPhone SE, rumoured to be called iPhone SE 3, may launch sometime next year. The tipster also suggests that the phone may have a small 4.7-inch form factor, to please customers who prefer a smaller screen. This is similar to iPhone SE (2020) that also features a 4.7-inch Retina HD (750×1,334 pixels) display. Additionally, the upcoming iPhone is tipped to come with support for 5G with the sub-6GHz band.
The tipster goes on to further claim that Apple is also working on an additional iPhone SE variant that may launch in 2023. This model is likely to have a large 6.1-inch screen with a hole-punch display rather than the notch that is seen on current-gen iPhone models.
Concept renders of iPhone SE 3, leaked a while ago, also suggest that the next-gen LCD model may have a hole-punch display, along with thin bezels. The phone also appears to have a flat frame that resembles the design of the iPhone 12 series. There is also a single camera sensor were spotted on the back of the iPhone, along with an LED flash. This is similar to iPhone SE and iPhone SE (2020). However, the renders show no home button. It has been mentioned that there could be Touch ID fingerprint recognition on the power key similar to the latest iPad Air.
