Apple will update its iPhone SE lineup in 2022. Reported by the Nikkei agency.
According to sources familiar with the company’s plans, Apple intends to release a new version of the iPhone SE in the first half of 2022. At the end of the year, the company will start manufacturing the device. It is reported that the updated model will retain the design – a 4.7-inch IPS-screen with frames, a Home button with a Touch ID fingerprint sensor, a single camera.
At the same time, the disclosed device will receive a new Apple A15 Bionic chip with 5G support. Due to the fact that the fifth generation communication requires an increased power consumption, the company’s engineers can update the device’s battery.
The report also states that Apple no longer intends to release mini-smartphones. Thus, the iPhone 13 mini presented in September will be the last in the specified line.
Apple last updated the SE series in March 2020. The original phone to the line of compact inexpensive devices – iPhone SE – was presented in early 2016.
Previously, analysts said that previous generation Apple smartphones may be in short supply. This is due to the fact that the American company has reduced the production of old smartphones in favor of the iPhone 13 series gadgets.
