iPhone SE 3, the next version of Apple’s budget mobile, could be launched in April alongside the second generation of the AirPods Pro headphones, according to reports Macotakara citing suppliers of the technological production chain in China.
Mobile sales halted its upward climb in 2018 and fell in 2020 for the first time in a decade. Market saturation; lack of innovation; economic situation or the greater need for another type of infrastructure in which to invest (such as laptops) for teleworking and studying, have ended the growth of smartphones.
And the price. Although there is a very interesting mid-range offer with contained prices, the average cost of smartphones has not stopped rising in recent years and the top of the range have been placed at levels that approach and exceed the barrier of $ 1,000 . As if to be updating frequently …
What will the iPhone SE 3 be like
Apple was one of the suppliers that most noticed the drop in sales and understanding that the price had become a critical point last year, it recovered the economic range with the iPhone SE 2020, the cheapest of the entire catalog with a price of $ 399 . The reception was extremely positive and the terminal helped smooth the sales decline.
If last year’s SE was based on the iPhone 8, the version for 2021 would be the renewal of the iPhone 8 Plus. If this is the case, the screen would increase from 4.7 inches to 5.5 inches. As for its hardware engine, Apple has several older SoCs to build, from the Apple A13 Bionic to higher ones.
Apple is sure to keep its overall design and aluminum and glass chassis, although it will likely end up permanently removing the physical home button and huge screen bezels. The RAM memory would be at least 3 GB and the internal storage unit should scale to 128 Gbytes taking into account that it does not have expansion with microSD cards.
We will see how Apple approaches its next “cheap” terminal since it is also rumored to launch a iPhone 12 without 5G. An option for markets where 4G is still the best option (or the only one) in mobile networks.
The date chosen for the launch of this iPhone SE 3 would be April, the same month that Apple chose last year. Along with the smart phone, there is talk of the launch of the second generation of AirPods Pro wireless headphones.
