iPhone SE+ 5G launch to happen in late April or early May, predicts analyst


A market analyst has predicted that the iPhone SE+ 5G launch will take place in the second half of April or early May. The new iPhone SE is speculated to be based on the same design language that was showcased on the previous generation model. It is also rumored to have a similar 4.7-inch display. However, a key difference over the current model on the iPhone SE+ 5G is believed to be the next-generation cellular connectivity. You can also expect some performance enhancements, thanks to a new Apple silicon.

Ross Young, CEO of Display Supply Chain Consultants (DSCC), a Texas-based display market intelligence firm, has said tweeted To predict the launch schedule of iPhone SE+ 5G. Young said production of the display panels for the new model will begin this month, while full manufacturing of the phone is expected from March.

iPhone SE+ 5G shipments will begin in late April or early May, Young predicted in his tweet posted on Wednesday.

Earlier this week, the analyst suggested the official name of the new iPhone SE model. It was previously a part of the rumor mill with the iPhone SE 3 or iPhone SE (2022) monikers.

The design of the iPhone SE + 5G is speculated to be similar to the current iPhone SE (2020) as of now. However, it is rumored to have Apple’s A15 Bionic chip, along with 3GB of RAM. The new iPhone SE is also expected to come with an improved 12-megapixel primary camera sensor.

Furthermore, the iPhone SE+ 5G is rumored to have 5G connectivity as a significant change over the iPhone SE (2020) with 4G support.

Some computer-aided design (CAD) renders of the new iPhone SE surfaced on the web earlier this week. The renders suggested Face ID support and a notch similar to the top-end iPhone model. But recent reports indicated that those changes will not be part of the upcoming iPhone SE this year.

Along with the iPhone SE+ 5G, Apple is speculated to launch its new iPad Air model – the iPad Air (5th generation). It could also come with A15 Bionic SoC and offer optional 5G connectivity.

Analysts at JP Morgan recently estimated that Apple may be able to attract over a billion non-premium Android users and around 300 million older iPhone model users by launching the iPhone SE+ 5G.

That said, Apple hasn’t provided any details about the new iPhone SE yet. Therefore, it is safe to consider the reported information with a pinch of salt.
