According to analysts, the iPhone SE 5G (2022) will be able to make 1.4 billion Android users want to switch to iOS. Apple’s low-cost 5G iPhone is expected to be released in early 2022. And here is all the information about this iPhone that we already know.
All leaked information about the iPhone SE 5G suggests that the design will not change compared to the previous iPhone SE. “Mr” Ming-Chi Kuo also commented that the iPhone SE 5G will have a 4.7-inch LCD screen, a physical Home button with Touch ID, identical to the iPhone 8.
There are also a few rumors that the iPhone SE 5G will have a 5.5-inch screen and design similar to the iPhone X. However, this seems unlikely. According to Mr. Kuo, the iPhone SE series will only have a new design in 2023, besides there will also be an iPhone SE Plus version.
The current iPhone SE is equipped with the A13 Bionic chip, which is Apple’s most advanced processor when the iPhone SE 2020 is launched. It should come as no surprise that the iPhone SE 5G will be the same, meaning it will be powered by the A15 Bionic chip, similar to the iPhone 13 series.
iPhone SE 2020 has 64GB and 128GB memory capacity options. However, when launching the iPhone 13, Apple removed the 64GB capacity option and only started from the 128GB version. Therefore, it is possible that the iPhone SE 5G will also have a capacity from 128GB and drop the 64GB version.
In terms of cameras, the iPhone SE 5G is said to have the same design as the iPhone 8, so it will only have one rear camera. However, it is likely that Apple will upgrade the sensor and use the main camera of the iPhone 12 to equip its latest low-cost iPhone.
This will be the most important feature on Apple’s new iPhone SE. iPhone SE 2022 will be equipped with 5G connectivity, but it is not clear which 5G bands it will support. This is also the feature that helps the new iPhone SE attract Android users to switch to Apple’s iOS platform.
Release date and price
At the end of November, TrendForce reported that the iPhone SE 5G will be launched in the first quarter of 2022. Previously, Apple also launched the first-generation iPhone SE in March 2016 and the second-generation iPhone SE. Monday in April 2020.
In the end, the selling price is what users care most about. However, so far there is no information on the price of the iPhone SE 5G. With the addition of 5G technology and doubling the storage capacity, it is likely that the iPhone SE 5G will cost more than its predecessors.
But maybe Apple will still keep the price from 399 USD, the purpose is to attract users. Because if you raise the price of the iPhone SE 5G to about $499, it will be quite close to the iPhone 12 mini ($599), and make Apple’s low-cost iPhone strategy likely to fail. The price of 399 USD will also be more suitable to compete with other mid-range 5G Android smartphones on the market today.
