Apple has been working really hard for the last few years to explore new price segments. The Cupertino-based tech giant launched the most awaited iPhone SE (2020) at a pocket-friendly price tag in 2020. In India, the new iPhone SE (2020) is currently selling at a price tag of Rs 39,900. Some reports circulating on the internet now suggest that Apple will launch the successor to the iPhone SE dubbed the iPhone SE 3 or iPhone SE (2021) in April 2021 alongside the next-generation AirPods Pro.

iPhone SE 3 aka iPhone SE (2021): What to expect
The iPhone SE 3 will succeed last year’s iPhone SE (2020) edition. Ahead of the launch, a lot has been revealed about this Apple iPhone model. Recently revealed concept renders of the iPhone SE (2021) edition reveals that it will be a lot different from the SE (2020) in terms of design, specifications, and more.

Some recently revealed renders reveal that the upcoming iPhone model will miss out on the home button as well as that ugly wide notch. As per the renders, the phone will include a punch-hole camera on the front right at the middle. Having said that, this will be the first time that an iPhone will come without a notch. The renders also suggest that the touchID will be placed on the power button, similar to some of the existing Android phones. This, in my opinion, make a lot more sense and is practical.
Another big difference between the iPhone SE (2021) or iPhone SE 3 and last year’s iPhone SE (2020) will be in the display department. The upcoming iPhone is also tipped to come with a flat display similar to the latest flagship iPhone 12 series. As far as the cameras are concerned, the iPhone SE 3 is seen with a single-camera setup at the back as well as the front.
Other rumours suggest that the iPhone SE 3 will come packed with a 5.4-inch LCD panel that will feature a high resolution but it won’t be as good as the expensive iPhone models. In terms of camera specifications, the phone will pack a 12-megapixel image sensor similar to the iPhone 12 mini. It will be powered by Apple A14 Bionic SoC with 4GB of RAM and up to 256GB internal storage.
As for the pricing, the iPhone SE 3 is expected to be priced at $499 (roughly Rs 36,400) for the base 64GB storage variant.
