Several component suppliers in Apple’s supply chain are preparing for shipments of a third generation iPhone SE, scheduled for launch in the first half of 2022, according to industry sources quoted by Taiwanese publication DigiTimes.

The full report has not yet been released, but a paid wall preview reads as follows:

VCM vendors see no cuts in orders for new iPhones: VCM (voice coil motor) and other component suppliers have still not seen any cut in orders for the new iPhones, and are preparing shipments for the next generation of Apple’s iPhone SE series to be launched in the first half of 2022, according to the industry sources.

Earlier this week, Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said the new iPhone SE will feature the same 4.7-inch screen size and 3GB of RAM as the current model, and that the new model is also expected to retain a Touch ID. home button and thicker frames. Kuo has previously said that the key features of the new iPhone SE will include 5G support and a faster processor – probably the A15 chip, which debuted in iPhone 13 models and the latest iPad mini.

The new iPhone SE will be specifically released in the first quarter of 2022, according to Taiwanese analytics firm TrendForce. If this time frame turns out to be accurate, we can expect the device to be released in late March.

Looking further ahead, rumors suggest that a fourth generation iPhone SE is scheduled for launch in 2023 with more significant changes, including a larger screen and 4GB of RAM. It is possible that this larger iPhone SE will have a design based on the iPhone XR.

The current iPhone SE was launched in April 2020, with prices starting at $ 399 for 64GB of storage.
