A new leak has now revealed some more details on the upcoming iPhone SE 3. The phone will apparently be inspired by the iPhone 11, and will be powered by an A15 Bionic, albeit a detuned version of the chipset. Launch remains pegged for H1 2022.

Information on Apple's next-gen compact phone, the iPhone SE 3, surfaces intermittently. The iPhone SE 3 is expected to debut in H1 2022, and the latest leak has now provided some more tidbits about the compact device.

Reputedly, the iPhone SE 3 will be built on an iPhone 11-esque chassis, essentially mirroring the relationships between the first-gen iPhone SE and the iPhone 5S, and the iPhone SE 2 and iPhone 8. It's important to note that this same leaker previously claimed the iPhone SE 3 would take design cues from the iPhone XR. The iPhone 11 sports a more modern design, so this should excite expectant fans. The leak also reiterates that the iPhone SE 3 will be powered by an A15 Bionic, with previous reports also claiming that it will offer an LCD panel, making it the last LCD device on the market with a premium SoC.

While the iPhone SE 3 is tipped to be equipped with an A15 Bionic, it will be a detuned model. It's unknown by how much it will be detuned but performance is unlikely to be better than that of the iPhone 13, even in best-case scenarios. The iPhone 13 still offers performance on the level of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, though, so that shouldn't be an issue. The iPhone SE 3 is expected to make its debut in March-April 2022, with prior leaks indicating that it will keep the price tag of the iPhone SE 2.

Buy the iPhone 13 on Amazon.
