Apple has reportedly been working on the iPhone SE 3 for more than a year now and has been subject to various leaks and rumors regarding its design and specs. Some even claimed that the handset will come with a hardware upgrade but maintain the same design as its predecessor. Others states that it’ll feature a whole new appearance. Now, a new leak is out to reveal its design via CAD renders.
According to a TenTechReview report, tipster @xleaks7 has revealed new CAD renders showcasing the design of the upcoming iPhone SE 3.
According to these new renders, the SE 3 retains the same rear design with a single camera and LED flash. The dimensions also remain exactly the same as on the previous model, 138.4 x 67.3 x 7.3 mm. However, the similarities end there as the device has a new look at the front.
The front has a larger screen as the device has reportedly gotten rid of the massive forehead, chin, and touch ID button found in current-gen SE models. According to the tipster, the device will likely feature a 5.69-inch screen and may come with a notch design for the Face ID and selfie camera sensor.
The right side spine will apparently house a power button and sim tray while the left side will have volume buttons and a silent mode switch. The new design makes the phone look more like an iPhone XR rather than an iPhone SE device.
The upcoming iPhone SE 3 is said to house an A14 Bionic or the A15 Bionic chipset and come with 5G network connectivity.
These new designs render however are in stark contrast to previous leaks from trusted sources like the noted Apple analyst and Bloomberg correspondent Mark Gurman, who earlier stated that the iPhone SE 3 design will be akin to iPhone SE 2’s. So we suggest you take these recent design renders with a pinch of salt and stay tuned for more updates on the matter.
