2022 iPhone SE uses Qualcomm’s customized X57 baseband

Apple recently released the 2022 iPhone SE, which still uses a 4.7-inch screen and Touch ID. Even with the A15 Bionic and the upgrade to the 5G network, it seems that it is not enough to bring enough surprises to consumers. However, the relatively low price and the improved performance and battery life may still be attractive to some consumers.

According to DigiTimes, the 2022 iPhone SE is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon X57 5G modem. Its 5G network supports the Sub-6GHz band, but not mmWave. At present, there is no information on this 5G modem on Qualcomm’s official website. It is likely to be a product customized by Qualcomm for Apple. There is no further detailed information for the time being.

Some netizens disassembled the 2022 iPhone SE and found that its battery capacity is 2018mAh, which is slightly higher than the 1821mAh of the previous generation iPhone SE. According to official data provided by Apple, among the 2022 iPhone SE, 2020 iPhone SE, iPhone 8, iPhone 12 mini, and iPhone 13 mini, the 2022 iPhone SE is on the same level as the iPhone 12 mini, better than the 2020 model.
Twitter user @KungFuGadgetsu said that the larger capacity battery of the 2022 iPhone SE, coupled with the cooperation of the A15 Bionic, has significantly improved battery life. Although the battery capacity is smaller than that of Samsung’s Galaxy S22 and Google’s Pixel 6, it will last longer than those two models in actual use.
