The predictions shared by him are pretty much in-line with the previous leaks for this device. He predicts that Apple will start mass production this month, and the Cupertino-based giant might sell around 25-30 million units by the end of this year. He also suggested that Apple might introduce a 256 GB variant and the existing 64 GB and 128 GB ones.
Kuo says that the 2022 iPhone SE would feature the latest A15 Bionic chip currently implemented in the iPhone 13 series. The new iPhone SE will be capable of using both the mmWave and Sub-6GHz 5G connectivity. He further added that the form factor design and the color options (White, Black, and (Product)ᴿᴱᴰ) would remain the same as the previous model.
This week on Wednesday, Apple officially announced the first Apple event of this year named “Peek Performance,” which will be held next week on March 8. It is expected that Apple will launch iPhone SE 3, iPad Air 5, an entry-level 13-inch MacBook Pro, and a redesigned iMac Pro in next week’s keynote.
