iPhone SE 3 latest leak shows the phone in the real world, both on its back and front. Renowned tipster Jon Prosser has shared images of the iPhone SE spotted in the real world. In the image, you see a black iPhone SE having the same design elements as the current gen model, complete with the volume and power keys in the same spot, and a single rear camera. The image also shows a small display with fat bezels.

However, look closely and it is an iPhone 8! The leaksters are apparently taking advantage of the fact that the new iPhone SE 5G will stay largely similar to the current gen iPhone SE 2020, which sadly was no different than the iPhone 8 from 2017. The leaked image show here has the Apple logo in the old position, which was something the iPhone 8 had. We suppose that Apple's prototype unit will not carry the old logo position.

iPhone SE 3 leaked image isn't true

It is said that the iPhone SE 3 is expected to be based on the iPhone SE 2020. That means you can expect the same vintage design with a 4.7-inch display with fat bezels around it, with one of them holding the Home button-integrated Touch ID. The phone is also said to have a single 12MP camera from the old model, as well as the same selfie camera setup from the iPhone SE 2020.

The main difference will be the chipset inside. Apple is said to be giving the iPhone SE 3 the Apple A15 chip from the iPhone 13. This will thereby bring 5G connectivity and improved performance to Apple's newest entry-level smartphone.

Additionally, the iPhone SE 3 is also expected to be sold as the iPhone SE + 5G, as mentioned by one leak. In another leak, it was said that the iPhone SE 5G, which is the name Apple is expected to pick most likely, could launch on March 8 alongside the new iPad Air. Apple is yet to announce anything officially on this front, hence you should take all of this with a pinch of salt.
