Latest rumours about the upcoming iPhone SE 5G suggest that Apple could include more upgrades than had previously been suggested. Reputedly, Apple could equip the third-generation iPhone SE with Ceramic Shield, MagSafe support and potentially a larger battery too.

According to last-minute rumours on the Naver Blog, the third-generation iPhone SE may receive a few more upgrades than an A15 Bionic SoC and a 5G modem. While it had previously been claimed that Apple would upgrade the iPhone SE from 3 GB to 4 GB of RAM, new rumours claim that the third-generation model may feature a larger battery too.

Currently, Apple equips the iPhone SE with a 1,821 mAh battery, a 617 mAh smaller capacity than the one in the iPhone 13 mini. Unsurprisingly, the iPhone SE (2020) has worse battery life than its smaller sibling. Separately, the iPhone SE 5G is tipped to receive MagSafe support, opening the budget iPhone to a wealth of accessories, not just magnetic chargers.

Additionally, the same source asserts that the iPhone SE 5G will launch with Ceramic Shield, Apple's marketing name for a glass-ceramic compound developed in collaboration with Corning. However, the third-generation handset will stick with its predecessor 4.7-inch panel, which has a 750p resolution. Apple will unveil the next iPhone SE at its 'Peek Performance' event later today. You can watch the event from 18:00 UTC on Apple's website.
