iPhone SE 3 Rumored to Feature iPhone XR Design With Touch ID and Be Apple’s Last LCD Smartphone

Apple’s third-generation iPhone SE will feature an iPhone XR-like design with Touch ID and be the company’s last ?iPhone? with an LCD display, according to Chinese site MyDrivers.

A machine translation of the report explains that the design of the third-generation ?iPhone SE? is based on the ?iPhone? XR, and will feature a ?Touch ID? fingerprint scanner built into the side button, as well as an LCD display, the A15 Bionic chip, and 5G connectivity. The report noted that the device is expected to be Apple’s final ?iPhone? with an LCD display, with future iPhones moving to OLED or other, more advanced display technologies.

MyDrivers acknowledged that this assertion stands in contrast to other recent claims that the third-generation ?iPhone SE? would continue with the design of the current, second-generation model, but was insistent that it is correct. The ?iPhone SE? currently shares the same design as the now-discontinued ?iPhone? 8, with a ?Touch ID? scanner built into the Home Button.

Rumors around the design of the next ?iPhone SE? have been muddled, with rumors from reliable sources such as Ming-Chi Kuo and Ross Young initially saying that the device would feature a 6.1-inch display like the ?iPhone? XR, but with a Touch ID side button. This year, Kuo and Young withdrew these expectations, saying that the third-generation ?iPhone SE? would instead have the same design as the current model with a Home Button.

Some of the confusion around the ?iPhone SE? may be explained by the 6.1-inch model potentially being the fourth-generation ?iPhone SE?. Young now expects a fourth-generation ?iPhone SE? to launch in 2023, featuring a 6.1-inch display and a hole-punch front-facing camera.

MyDrivers said that the third-generation ?iPhone SE? will reportedly launch in the spring of 2022, and start with 64GB of storage and the same $399 starting price of the current model.

MyDrivers has a mixed track record. Although the site erroneously suggested that the ?iPhone? 7 Plus would actually be called the “iPhone Pro” and the fourth-generation iPad Air would launch in March 2021, it correctly predicted that the ?iPhone? 7 would be available with up to 256GB of storage, that third-generation iPad Pro would contain a 7nm chip with eight cores, and that the fourth-generation iPad Air would feature a larger display, the A14 Bionic chip, a Smart Connector with Magic Keyboard support, a USB-C port, and stereo speakers.Related Roundup: iPhone SE 2020Tag: mydrivers.comBuyer’s Guide: iPhone SE (Caution)Related Forum: iPhoneThis article, “iPhone SE 3 Rumored to Feature iPhone XR Design With Touch ID and Be Apple’s Last LCD Smartphone” first appeared on MacRumors.comDiscuss this article in our forums
