Apple iPhone SE (3rd gen) could come with 5G and Touch ID, Spring 2022

(Pocket-lint) – Apple announced the iPhone 13 series during an event on 14 September 2021, but there’s still one phone in the company’s line up that has yet to see a refresh – the iPhone SE.

The second generation of the iPhone SE was announced in April 2020 and rumour suggests the third generation device will begin production in December 2021 for release in Spring 2022. 

It’s claimed by Japanese site Macotakara, as well as Nikkei Asia, that the iPhone SE (3rd generation) will continue to offer a 4.7-inch Retina HD display with the Touch ID fingerprint sensor below.

It’s also said the device will offer the same A15 Bionic chip as the most recent iPhone 13 series, as well as the same Qualcomm Snapdragon X60 5G modem. Naturally, that of course suggests that the iPhone SE (3rd generation) will be 5G capable, like the iPhone 12 series and iPhone 13 series.

Nothing is official as yet, nor will it be for quite some time, though these rumours dispell any suggestions of a larger iPhone SE for now. They also suggest if you want a smaller iPhone with Face ID, that the iPhone 13 mini is the one you’ll want to consider, rather than holding out for the next iPhone SE.
