Although the appearance of the mold has been used for many years, the sales of the iPhone SE are not bad. Last year, the second-generation iPhone SE seized a lot of markets for Apple’s iPhone and ranked second in the global smartphone sales list in 2020. In addition to the relatively affordable price in the iPhone product line, individual users’ preference for Touch ID is one of the factors. In the past year or so in the coronavirus epidemic, this feature has worked very well.
Apple will continue to update the iPhone SE product line and will launch a new entry-level iPhone next year. CEO of Display Supply Chain Consultants (DSCC) Ross Young said on his Twitter account, next year’s iPhone SE is called iPhone SE Plus, but it’s still the same 4.7-inch screen as the iPhone 8 and will support 5G networks. There is also an “iPhone SE” product with a 5.7-inch to 6.1-inch LCD screen, which has been delayed until 2024.
This naming is rather strange. Apple
usually uses Plus on devices with a larger size, perhaps because it has joined the 5G network, and distinguished in this way. It is understood that the third-generation iPhone SE will be equipped with A14 Bionic, and still retain the Home button and Touch ID sensor. This should be the only model in the entire iPhone product line equipped with this. The only worry may be battery life. The performance of the second-generation iPhone SE in this regard is not satisfactory. If there is a 5G network, the battery life may be bad.
The new iPhone SE is expected to be released in the first half of 2022. Apple’s cheapest 5G phone ever should be its selling point and the focus of the upgrade. Apple should want to maintain the current product line settings and continue to seize the 5G smartphone market.
