The iPhone SE 3 to enter mass production in December with an old design, a new SoC and 5G connectivity
Mac Otakara has provided some insights into a new iPhone SE, a device that Apple refreshed last year. Surprisingly, Mac Otakara claims that Apple will revisit the iPhone 8's design, itself a slight variation on the iPhone 7 series.
However, Apple is expected to replace the A13 Bionic in the current iPhone SE with the A15 Bionic. Hence, the iPhone SE 3 will support 5G connectivity, which Apple introduced on the iPhone 12 series. The A15 Bionic also includes several other changes that should benefit the iPhone SE 3, including a new ISP, a faster Neural Engine and a revised display engine.
Unfortunately, the iPhone SE 3 will probably still rely on the 4.7-inch panel used in its predecessor. Accordingly, the handset will operate natively at 1,334 x 750 pixels, a much lower resolution than the iPhone 13 mini offers.
Mac Otakara believes that the iPhone SE 3 will arrive at the beginning of spring 2022. Supposedly, mass production will start in December, provided there are no issues.
