The report further revealed that the iPhone SE 3 will include a side-mounted fingerprint sensor quite similar to the iPad models. However, there is no information whether the iPhone will come equipped with FaceID or not. We do wish it does.
Since Apple is tipped to discontinue the mini lineup next year and instead focus on SE more. The SE series has always been targeted to first time iPhone buyers or consumers with limited budget.
What about the pricing?
Apple is expected to price the iPhone SE 3 on the similar lines. As far as rumours and leaks are concerned, the iPhone SE 3 will launch at CNY 3299, which roughly translates to Rs 38,600. In India, it could be priced slightly on the higher side. The iPhone SE 2020 is currently available at a price starting at Rs 39,900 for the base 64GB storage model. The price of the phone goes up to Rs 44,900 for the 128GB storage model.
