It is claimed to come equipped with Apple A15 Bionic SoC paired with 3GB of RAM, and a larger variant is tipped to come with 4GB of RAM.

Commercial launch is expected in spring of 2022. On an alleged iPhone SE Plus variant, a report said Apple is working on a variant with 6.1-inch screen. This model may launch in 2023 and is likely to have a hole-punch display rather than a notch.
Speaking of Apple iPhone SE 3 5G, JP Morgan analysts have said that the phone will allow Apple to target the mid-range smartphone market, and it has the potential to lure nearly 1.4 billion low- to mid-end Android phone users as well as about 300 million older iPhone model users.
