Apple may well release its third iPhone SE model in early 2022. It should be equipped with 5G and have the potential to attract more than a billion new customers from Android, according to an analyst. A very optimistic forecast … but one that makes sense.
The year 2022 could see Apple release a new iPhone SE, its phone at a more affordable price than its classic flagships. Its particularity would be to be compatible with 5G networks and to offer an iPhone experience at a reduced price. A smartphone that could grow more than a billion people in the arms of Apple, according to an analyst.
It is an analyst of JP Morgan relayed by Reuters who affirms it. With this iPhone SE, the Cupertino company would attack a huge market dominated by Samsung, Huawei or Xiaomi. A market where consumers cannot afford an iPhone 13 and therefore choose a terminal that is more affordable for them.
The iPhone SE 3, the terminal that could attract 1.4 billion consumers in the nets of Apple
According to JP Morgan, this would be 1.4 billion consumers who could potentially migrate from their entry / mid-range phone to the iPhone SE 3. Potentially is the important word here, since it will then be up to Apple to convince them to switch to the box. With the trade-in offer for your old Android, iPhone SE could cost between $ 269 and $ 399, according to the analyst.

Moreover, 300 million owners of old iPhones could renew their terminal at a lower cost with this SE. In short, a smartphone that has enormous potential to attract a large number of consumers.
The iPhone SE 3 should be presented in a few months: in March 2022, according to the latest leaks. The terminal would be equipped with a 4.7-inch LCD panel (the latest for Apple). Inside, we should find an A15 Bionic processor designed by Apple, the same SoC that currently equips the iPhone 13. Of course, its main strength will be to embark on 5G, a strong argument in 2022.
As a reminder, the very first iPhone SE was released in 2016 and was a huge success. A second model was released in 2020 and met the same fate. It is therefore a safe bet that the third iteration of the terminal is also synonymous with success for the Cupertino company.
