Apple iPhone SE

Apply analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claims that the 2022 iPhone SE will be the cheapest 5G iPhone.

Most trusted Apple tipster Ming-Chi Kuo, in a recent note to investors, revealed that Apple is planning to launch a new iPhone SE in the first half of 2022. The new version of the iPhone SE will support 5G connectivity and will be the “cheapest 5G iPhone ever“. 

Currently, iPhone 12 mini holds the position of the most affordable 5G iPhone in the market which was launched last year priced at $699 for the base storage. So, the 2022 iPhone SE will cost lower than $699. The original iPhone SE starts at $399. Shortly after the launch, the device gained huge popularity, thanks to the inexpensive price point.

Kuo also mentioned that the new iPhone SE will bring processor updates. He earlier claimed that the design will be roughly the same as that of the original iPhone SE. With an improved processor, 5G connectivity, and lower price point, the 2022 iPhone SE is most likely to target mid-range Android users. This iPhone could probably be called as iPhone SE3.

In the past, there were rumors about iPhone SE Plus. The device is said to offer a larger display and Touch ID power button, as mentioned by Kuo in the past. But, we didn’t hear anything for a while from Apple tipsters. So, we are not sure if the device will get a launch or has been discontinued.

Apple iPhone 13 series

The iPhone 13 series will be unveiled at an event held in September this year. Past reports have revealed that the next-generation iPhones will bring a small notch for the selfie camera, while the screen sizes will remain the same as iPhone 12 series. Rumors hint that the Pro and Pro Max model will get an LTPO panel and 120Hz refresh rate. The iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13, and iPhone 13 Pro Max are said to offer 2,406mAh, 3,095mAh, and 4,352mAh rated capacities batteries respectively.
