Just a couple of days ago DigiTimes offered us some details of the future iPhone SE of 2022. Interesting details that, however, do not agree with those projected by Nikkei. In a new report published by Nikkei Asia the publication contradicts DigiTimes and claims that we will see an A15 in the next generation of iPhone SE.
An iPhone SE that catches up with an A15 processor
We’ve been hearing rumors about the future iPhone SE for some time. Some of these rumors put it in 2023, but the most recent ones place it in the first half of 2022, probably March . Dates fixed more or less, the buzz, coming from Apple’s supply chain, centers on components and specifications.
According to Nikkei, the future iPhone SE of 2022 will come with an A15 processor inside. The same processor that, if everything goes according to plan, we will see arrive this fall from the hand of the iPhone 13 . Although this information contradicts the one published two days ago by DigiTimes, where they stated that this iPhone SE would come with an A14, it is also true that it coincides and confirms some specifications.
The Asian media supports previous rumors by stating that this iPhone SE will receive 5G thanks to the Qualcomm X60 chip and that it will have a 4.7-inch LCD screen instead of making the jump to OLED. The design, based on the iPhone 8, will be maintained, which means that this iPhone will continue to have Touch ID, although it is not specified if it will be on the front button, and with a single camera, from which we do not expect improvements.
The inexpensive 5G iPhone will hit the market in the first half of 2022, according to informed sources. It will have Apple's A15 processor - the same chip that this year's high-end iPhones will incorporate - and its 5G connectivity will be enabled by Qualcomm's X60 modem chip, they added.
iPhone 14 mini
The report has also had time to support a rumor that we have been hearing for a long time. According to Nikkei the iPhone 13 mini will be the last iPhone with the “mini” last name for a season. As we have discussed in the past, the iPhone 14, which we see in fall 2022, will continue to offer four models, but only two sizes.
The cast that we expect consists of two iPhone 14s of 6.1 and 6.7 inches, and two iPhone 14 Pro also 6.1 and 6.7 inches. To orient ourselves we could call them iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Max, iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, a change that will allow access to the larger iPhone without the extra outlay of targeting a Pro model.
"It's more or less decided that there won't be a Mini next year, and instead there will be a relatively inexpensive version of the larger iPhone Pro Max. However, the detailed specification designs for next year's four new models still remain. they are not closed, "one of the people with direct knowledge of the matter told Nikkei Asia.
About seven weeks after the launch of the new iPhone, the rumors here is in full swing. With this year’s iPhones already in production, rumors center on the next iPhones, whose designs are closing right now. The iPhones we’ll still have to wait over a year for, so for now, let’s focus on the upcoming launch.
