Apple last updated its iPhone SE smartphone in 2020. This smartphone is able to attract the attention of many gadget fans. Now, the Cupertino-based tech giant is getting ready to launch an updated iPhone SE this year.
There have been several leaks regarding Apple’s upcoming “budget-friendly” iPhone, including reports of the device arriving in spring this year. Interestingly, a recent report claims that the launch of the device could be sooner than expected.
A recent report from Mark Gurman (Bloomberg) claims that Apple will host its first launch event of the year on March 8. It is believed, at the event, Apple will launch the iPhone SE 2022.
Previously, there were reports that the device would be officially released sometime in April or May. If reports from Gurman are to be believed, then along with the 5G-enabled iPhone SE, Apple will also launch three other products at the same event.
Apple’s iPad Air is also expected to get a refresh. It is also possible that Apple will also announce a new entry-level MacBook device powered by the M2 chipset or the new 27-inch iMac. Of course, this is exciting news for fans of Apple products.
As for the iPhone SE with 5G support that will come next month, it will most likely have the same design as the model available today. However, Apple will certainly boost the specifications so that it has better performance.
Many doubt that the iPhone SE 2022 will look like the iPhone 8, but will have improvements on the inside. The device is expected to arrive with a 4.7-inch Retina HD LCD display and will also have a Home button with an embedded fingerprint sensor.
This will likely be the last Apple smartphone to come with an LCD display panel and home button. The device is also said to be powered by the Apple A15 chipset along with 3GB of RAM, while there may also be a Plus variant that will pack 4GB of RAM.
Bringing 5G frills, of course the chipset injected by Apple into this smartphone will bring support for 5G connectivity. There will still be a single 12 MP camera sensor on the back, and of course with improved photography features.
