The rest of the specifications and features of the upcoming iPhone SE Plus and iPhone SE 3 remain a mystery at the moment. Back in July, Nikkei Asia, citing sources had revealed that Apple will launch a low-cost iPhone with an A15 Bionic SoC and Qualcomm’s X60 modem. It is believed that this low-cost iPhone will have the iPhone 8-inspired shell. Furthermore, in June, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo had said the device will be the “cheapest iPhone model ever.” An exact launch date of the upcoming iPhone SE Plus or the iPhone SE 3 is yet to be revealed. Previously, Mac Otakara citing Chinese sources had revealed that the iPhone SE 3 will debut next spring.
Contrary rumours suggest that the iPhone SE 3 will feature a Touch ID housed on the Home button below the display. While some believe that the iPhone SE 3 will come with a side-mounted fingerprint scanner. The Mydrivers report states that the iPhone SE 3 will cost CNY 3299 (roughly Rs 38,600) in China.
