Apple’s new iPhone se is expected to be launched in the first half of 2022. The report points out that the appearance of the new iPhone se is based on the transformation of the iPhone 8. The A15 chip of this year’s iPhone 13 series will be used in the interior of the new iPhone se, and the 5g network support will be provided by the Qualcomm X60 communication module.
However, DIGITIMES reported that the iPhone Se in 2022 will use A14 chip instead of A15 chip mentioned by Nikkei Asia. However, the report said that the next-generation iPhone se is similar in appearance to the current model, with a 4.7-inch LCD panel instead of a larger LCD or OLED screen. The report does not specify whether the new model will include the home key, but the consistent design indicates that the new model will include the touch ID home key.
“According to people familiar with the matter, the budget 5g iPhone will be available as early as the first half of 2022,” Nikkei Asia reported. They added that it will be powered by Apple’s own A15 processor – the same chip as this year’s high-end iPhone – and that its 5g connection will be implemented by Qualcomm’s X60 modem chip. “.
Other claims were confirmed in the report, including that the 5.4-inch Mini will no longer appear in the iPhone lineup in 2022, as sales of the iPhone 12 Mini proved disappointing. Instead, Apple will launch a second 6.7-inch model, which will obviously lead to two “iPhone 14” and two “iPhone 14 Pro” models, each in 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch sizes.
People familiar with the matter told Nikkei Asia: “basically, it has been decided that there will be no mini next year, but an iPhone with the highest relative cost performance? Pro Max version. However, the detailed specifications of the four new models have not been locked in next year.
Nikkei Asia said that this year’s iPhone 13 series will start mass production next month, and Apple will produce as many as 95 million units by the end of January. Overall, apple expects to produce 230 million iPhones in 2021, up 11% from 2020.
