Is the iPhone SE 3 launching in May? Well known display analyst Ross Young has claimed that the next generation of the iPhone SE went into production this month. Display panels are already being manufactured with the final assembly said to take place in March. Young goes on to claim that a launch of the new device is likely in late April or early May.
It is widely anticipated that the next-generation iPhone SE will support 5G and offer a faster chip. The jury is still out on the design of the device with some claims stating it will continue to retain the current design with a home button. But other reports suggest it might use the chassis of the iPhone XR. Some rumours have gone as far as to suggest that the new iPhone SE may adopt Touch ID in the side button, similar to the iPad Air and iPad Mini. That makes sense as it would allow Apple to keep the cost of the device lower without needing to include Face ID sensors. But it’s unusual for a low-end device to get a new feature first. Still, it might make sense if Apple wants to give the new SE the ‘iPhone X’ treatment with an edge to edge display.
