The rumors about the next model of Apple’s fan favorite compact smartphone have been fully effective, although we may not see it until a year later.
Analyst Ross Young posted to Twitter On April 1st (salt grains, etc.), the next iPhone SE will be available in 2022, with the same form factor as the current SE at 4.7 inches.This updated model, Young wrote, can be equipped with sub-65G’s GHz changes instead of supporting all frequency bands, including Ultrafast millimeter wave spectrum. Young also mentioned hearing about a 6.1-inch model with “punch holes instead of notches” that might be released in 2023.
Reliable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo had some such claims in a previous report last month. Quoting from the Kuo Supply Chain Report, 9to5Mac Kuo also reported that 5G connectivity will also appear in the 2022 iPhone SE model. Guo Ming also said that it is expected that the model in 2022 will adopt a 4.7-inch design, but the processor will be upgraded.
Among these rumors, the most interesting is that Apple may plan to abandon the size of the SE in order to use it for a larger display. It is not clear whether the SE will use a thinner frame to make the same size body, or whether Apple will increase the size of the SE (the latter is bad news for the little hands among us).
Given that we seem to be getting the updated iPhone SE for more than a year (according to the report that the new version is expected to be released in 2022), SE rumors still have enough time to spark hype around updated, more powerful devices. But this looks very interesting.
