Apple is expected to release a third-generation iPhone SE soon, perhaps up to six months before the iPhone 14 series arrives. New leaked CAD renders purport to show what the next iPhone SE will look like, which includes a single rear-facing camera and a notched display. Apparently, the panel change will bring a 5.69-inch display to the iPhone SE, and without making its chassis any larger than the current model's.

It remains unclear if Apple is planning a major redesign of the iPhone SE, a smartphone that it has released sporadically since 2016. Recently, Mark Gurman alleged that Apple had scheduled a spring launch event for the iPhone SE 5G, but this may be a refresh of the model that it released in 2020. Supposedly, Apple is holding off from making sweeping changes to the iPhone SE until 2024, when an actual third-generation model will arrive.

However, @xleaks7 claims to have received leaked CAD models that point to an overhaul of the iPhone SE series. Unescapably, the design resembles the current iPhone SE's back panel, with its single rear-facing camera, microphone and circular flash housing. Reputedly, Apple has adopted a notched display for the next iPhone SE though, although the style Apple used before the iPhone 13 series.

According to leaked data, the supposed third-generation iPhone SE measures 138.4 x 67.3 x 7.3 mm, a much smaller footprint than the iPhone XR. Mind you, those measurements match the current iPhone SE, which also weighs 148 g. @xleaks7 adds that the next iPhone SE will have a 5.69-inch display, as opposed to the 4.7-inch one in last year's iPhone SE.

Presumably, Apple will equip the budget smartphone with an outgoing flagship SoC too, which would be the A15 Bionic this time around. For reference, the iPhone SE (2020) relies on the A13 Bionic from the iPhone 11 series.
