A new report says Apple's iPhone SE for 2022 will feature the same design as the current model, but include 5G and the A15 Bionic chip.
From Mac Otakara:
Mac Otakara says production on the new device will begin in December, with a release date set for the spring of 2022. The report says that according to "reliable sources" the iPhone SE will be a direct successor to the current model, featuring the same 4.7-inch display, Touch ID, Home Button, and design. However it is expected to receive the A15 Bionic that features in Apple's current best iPhone, the iPhone 13.
The report reiterates a rumor from Nikkei Asia earlier this year, from that report:
Verizon's best deal offers the iPhone SE for $0 monthly after $399.99 promo credit is applied over 24 months meaning the phone is effectively free with a new line on Unlimited. It is also discounting online activation fees by 50% currently and offering $150 off an Apple Watch with an iPhone purchase.
