Tipped to be the star of the next keynote, Apple’s next affordable smartphone, the iPhone SE 2022, is unveiled ahead of time.
Apple will hold its spring keynote on March 8. On this occasion, we should discover the new affordable smartphone from the famous apple brand. Two years after the second generation iPhone SE, Apple is expected to introduce a new iPhone SE. Third representative of the series, this new model must come to occupy the mid-range and compete with Android devices.
On Twitter, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo takes stock before the meeting on Tuesday. The opportunity for us to summarize what to expect from this little phone.
Some predictions for the coming new iPhone SE:
1. Mass production in Mar’22.
2. Estimated shipments of 25-30 min units in 2022.
3. Storage: 64/128/256GB.
4. A15 & 5G support (mmW & Sub-6GHz).
5. Casing: white, black, and red.
6. Similar form factor design to current SE.

More power and up to 256 GB of storage
For its new smartphone, Apple would still and always keep the design of the iPhone 8. Although aging and already offered on the iPhone SE of 2020, it should be renewed one last time. Inside, we expect a lot of power with the presence of the A15 Bionic chip. The latter succeeds rather well with the iPhone 13 and opens the possibility for the new SE to be 5G compatible. An interesting argument for Apple which would add an affordable device compatible with this network to its catalog. This support would be as complete as on the high-end models, with support for millimeter waves.
On the storage side, Apple would add a third option by offering to increase up to 256 GB. This more comfortable quantity would be added to the 64 GB and 128 GB variants offered by the current iPhone SE. The rest of the specs shouldn’t change much, still featuring a small 4.7-inch LCD screen. The apple brand would be particularly conservative, going so far as to offer the same colors. The new iPhone SE would therefore be available in three colors: white, black and red.
The analyst adds that the California-based manufacturer expects to ship between 25 and 30 million in 2022. Mass production is due to begin in March, with availability set for April.
Is this the real Ming-Chi Kuo?
This information is based on the publication of a Twitter account in the name of the analyst (@mingchikuo). Registered since March 2011, it is not very active and is not certified by the social network; which casts doubt on the identity of the user. The website 9TB5Mac conducted the investigation and ensures that it is indeed the real Ming-Chi Kuo. A confirmation that pushes to take these new elements seriously.
For the officialization, it is necessary to wait for March 8 and the beginning of the keynote. We will be mobilized to make you discover the latest news from the apple brand.
