Apple will soon enter the iPhone SE trial production phase. The smartphone is expected to be powered by the company’s A15 Bionic SoC. It may come with 3GB of RAM and 5G connectivity, the report said. The smartphone launching date is tipped to be first-quarter of next year.
This is according to various reports that claimed that Apple is about to conduct trial production of the iPhone SE 3 shortly. The smartphone is said will come with a 4.7-inch Retina HD LCD and a Home button with an embedded fingerprint sensor, which suggests that it may lack Face ID.

A report had earlier tipped that the upcoming Apple iPhone SE may also include the Qualcomm Snapdragon X60 5G modem chip and that its production will start around December 2021.
A commercial launch is expected in the spring of 2022. On an alleged iPhone SE Plus variant, a report said Apple is working on a variant with a 6.1-inch screen. This model may launch in 2023 and is likely to have a hole-punch display rather than a notch.
An analyst speaking of Apple iPhone SE 3 5G has said that the phone will allow Apple to target the mid-range smartphone market, and it has the potential to lure nearly 1.4 billion low- to mid-end Android phone users as well as about 300 million older iPhone model users.
