    The mid-range Apple iPhone SE variant, which is in the affordable range, is drawing a huge amount of interest from everyone concerned. The big news is that it is expected to lure millions of Android phone users to the Apple iPhone fold. This is due to its expected affordability as well as premium features. It mayeven offer the current chipsets that are in iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Mini.Since 2020, Apple hasn't updated its iPhone SE variant and it will be worth seeing what this phone will offer. This has driven the interest in the iPhone SE 3 launch date to a new high. Several reports have mentioned that Apple will launch the iPhone SE 3 in the first quarter of 2022, while the most recent leak has hinted that it may be rolled out by April 2022. Bloomberg's Mark Gurman hinted that Apple is expected to unveil the iPhone SE 3 during the upcoming virtual event perhaps in March itself or at the most in April.

    While that is about the launch date, another recent leak revealed the computer-aided design of the iPhone SE 3 for the first time. According to the leaked renders, the iPhone SE 3 will look identical to its predecessors, the iPhone SE 2020 and iPhone XR. Even though, it may get a few notable changes. The new Apple iPhone SE 3 design features a front-facing display with a notch for Face ID. There's also a camera with a flash on the rear. With a 5.69-inch display, it appears to be identical to the iPhone SE 2020 and the iPhone XR. On the other hand, the iPhone SE 3's CAD images reveal that it will not have the same boxy form as the iPhone 12 and iPhone 13. The colour depicted was white in design, and no additional information regarding other colours is available.

    Apple iPhone SE 3 expected specifications

    Several leaks in the past suggested that the iPhone SE 3 is expected to have 5G capability as well as the latest tech. In comparison to the A13 chipset, it may use the new A15 Bionic chip, which is already in previous Apple smartphone models like the iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Mini, iPhone 13 Pro, and iPhone 13 Pro Max, so it's not new to iPhones. While some leaks suggest that the iPhone SE 3 will have 128GB of storage instead of the 64GB seen in the iPhone SE. A 12MP camera sensor and an external X60M 5G baseband chip could be included. Looking at its camera set-up, a few reports suggested that the iPhone SE 3 might have a single 12MP camera sensor as well as an external X60M 5G baseband chip for better photography.
