iPhone SE 3 (2021) Release Date, Price & Specs Rumours
The massive success of iPhone SE 2 proves that more and more smartphone users want to have the top-notch iOS experience at an affordable price. Featuring a high-end processor and fairly good cameras, budget king iPhone SE 2 can give a tough competition to many flagship smartphones.
Pleased with the impressive response to the budget iPhone, Apple is getting ready to launch iPhone SE 3 with beefed-up specs. If you are an iPhone fan or are considering getting a new smartphone then you might be interested in tracking iPhone SE 3 release date, price and specs. Here’s all you must know about Apple’s upcoming compact iPhone.
iPhone SE 3 Design and Display
Going by a host of iPhone SE 3 rumours, the smartphone will sport a 5.4/5″ edge-to-edge screen complete with a notch up top. Interestingly, some rumors have even suggested that the SE 2021 will boast a large 6” screen with a hole-punch camera. Though we don’t completely rule out the possibility of a hole-punch camera, it seems to be highly unlikely.
The device is said to feature a side-mounted fingerprint scanner for secure biometric authentication. The glass-aluminium body will give it a modern-looking design.
As for the display, rumours have suggested that iPhone SE 3 will come with an OLED display, which will be a significant upgrade from the current LED-backlit IPS LCD screen. The saturated pixel density of 430ppi and the screen resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels promise enriched visual quality.
According to some reliable reports, Apple will stick with the classic design for SE 3. They suggest that the budget iPhone will feature a 5.5” screen with bezels on top and bottom. Besides, it will have an iconic home button. So, while we would recommend you to keep your fingers crossed for a modern-looking SE 3 boasting a bezel-less screen, do not completely rule out the possibility of an iPhone 8 Plus being revamped as an SE 2021.
iPhone SE 3 Cameras
Rumor mills seem to be completely confused about the iPhone SE 3 cameras. While some reports claim that the SE 2021 will boast dual-cameras (12MP, standard and telephoto cameras), others suggest that the device will feature a single camera of 12 MP.
As for the selfie shooter, it is said to have either 7MP or 12MP. Going by our instincts, the budget iPhone will have a single 12MP camera on the back and a 7/8MP front camera. It is because Apple won’t want to undercut the value of the iPhone 12 mini that is already feeling the heat due to lukewarm response.
iPhone SE 3 Storage and RAM
According to reports, iPhone SE 2021 will be made availablein three storage capacities—64GB, 128GB and 256GB. Plus, the phone is expected to have a 3GB RAM. Knowing how efficient iPhones have always been, 3GB RAM will be more than enoughto help the device run smoothly.
No prizes for guessing, SE 3 will run iOS 14 out-of-the-box.
iPhone SE 3 Battery
One of the downsides of iPhone SE 2020 was its low capacity battery (1,821mAh). Today, when most smartphones come with a robust 4000mAh battery, anything less than a 2500mAh battery seems below par.
It is widely believed that Apple is going to address this shortcoming in the new model. iPhone SE 3 is said to feature a comparatively better 2300-2500mAh battery that can last aday of normal usage. While it would have been better if the tech giant had opted for a 3000mAh battery that gives users extra hours of gaming and video streaming experience, anything around 2500mAh will still be enough considering how energy efficient iPhones usually are.
iPhone SE 3 5G Compatibility
This is a no-brainer, right? With Apple finally adopting 5G across iPhone models, iPhone SE 3 5G seems to be pretty much on the cards. For those who have been hunting for a relatively cheap 5G-equipped iPhone, the SE 2021 could be the answer.
iPhone SE 3 Price in India
Last year, Apple surprised us by pricing iPhone SE 2 aggressively at ₹44,999. Knowing the tremendous response that the device received, we expect Apple to follow the same trend with the upcoming phone. If that happens, iPhone SE 3 will be available for the starting price of ₹44,999.
iPhone SE 3 Launch in India
Initially, rumour mills had predicted that iPhone SE 3 will see the light of the day at the much-awaited March event. But, that was not to be. Now, various reports suggest that the tech giant is geared up to unveil the budget iPhone on 23 April and subsequently launch it in several countries including India within a week.
Having handled the SE 2 at Rapid Repair, we are sure that its successor with ramped-up specs will only up the usability and style game for its users. What do you think?
